Today’s emerging adults are less motivated less by profit, and more by purpose, than previous generations. This has been misinterpreted as entitlement, he says. “They’re just not willing to work their lifetimes in a job they hate. That’s something admirable about them, not something we should be abusing them for.”

Nicest RSVP Ever

Greetings Emma and Jeb,

It is with sincere disappointment that I am writing to inform you, I will be unable to attend your wedding on August the 3rd. This occasion was certainly at the top of my list this summer. Unfortunately, it has become unworkable between work and prior obligations.

Since we first time we met in August of 2011, I have noticed the profound way in which you both have expertly taken on the twin responsibility of asserting your independence while acknowledging the source of happiness you have in each other. This might come off quite strong, because our relationship is based on a few personal events, but it is certainly not without warrant. Blurbs from Facebook and listening to mutual friends about the two of you provide warm insight into your life in the Capital. Secondly, I know the strains that moving to a very competitive city can place on oneself, and by extension relationships. It appears you have excelled in your professional careers and relationship to levels unimaginable prior to moving to DC. It is for this reason, that I am so happy you a getting married next month. There is nothing comparable to success without the requisite exhaustion.

I wish you a beautiful wedding, surrounded by your closest friends and family. I hope to see you soon in DC.

Best,
M

Glass Beach, Northern California

From 1950 to 1967, residents of Fort Bragg, California chose to dispose of their waste by hurling it off the cliffs above a beach. No object was too toxic or too large such as household appliances, automobiles, and all matter of trash were tossed into the crashing waves below, eventually earning it the name The Dumps. Then in 1967, city leaders closed and reclaimed the beach. Various cleanup programs were undertaken.

Over the next several decades, the pounding waves cleaned the beach by breaking down everything but glass turning the sand into a sparkling, multicolored bed of smooth glass stones. The California Department of Parks and Recreation purchased the land and incorporated it into MacK­er­richer State Park in 2002.

It’s funny when you get a job offer and suddenly the jobs you’ve been doing for 3 years become close to unbearable. Two more weeks. Deep breaths.
