You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.

Backtrack: Choose Your Own Adventure Books

You are walking down a path and you see a dragon blocking your way. If you want to fight the dragon, turn to page 3. If you want to talk to the dragon, turn to page 4. If you want to throw rocks at the dragon…. well, you can’t. Why would anybody want to throw rocks at a dragon?

Anyway, Choose Your Own Adventure books gave us an opportunity to feel in control at an age where we didn’t have a lot of control in our day-to-day lives. Come join us as we reminisce about those wonderful adventures we had reading these gems.
