Would Ernest Hemingway have been glad to see the youth of the twenty-first century gradually reciprocating the same ideals as the Lost Generation of the 1920s?
The Lost Generation, in literary terms, included all the war veterans of World War I who fled to Paris for some sort of
reprieve and escape from the chaos that was ongoing in their homelands.

“Being an up-and-coming artist today is the most fun stressful pursuit I can possibly think of.

I failed gym in middle school because I refused to participate in any of the activities: basketball, softball, kickball. I boycotted anything that ended in ball. When I graduated eighth grade, a friend in my class wrote in my yearbook: Youre pretty cool. . . but you never participated in gym class!
Id always hated sports since I was little. I was introverted: more of the type of kid to stay home and read than go to practice. My mom forced me join tee-ball and a few weeks later, she let me quit because I whined so much.
Now, years later, Im realizing that I wanted to quit and refused to play because I always told myself I wasnt any good.
