It’s summertime, and, normally, people across the country would be slathering on sunscreen and heading outside. This year, summer looks a little different.

There are different career paths available to different individuals based on their experiences, but the concept is still the same. Certain life experiences become rites of passage based on how normal they are to each passing generation.
