Tuesday Links: Young Adults Are...

It's Tuesday, and time once again for the internet to tell young adults who we are and what we're doing.

This week, young adults are...

No longer able to open credit cards if they're under the age of 21. (According to the linked piece, 84% of college undergraduates have credit cards; the amount of credit card debt carried by the average college student---as of 2004---was $2200.)

In desperate need of an afternoon nap.

Just as religious as our parents and grandparents were at our age, but less likely to be affiliated with any particular denomination or faith community.

Eager to vote in national elections (provided they can do it via text message.)

Misinformed about Wichita, Kansas; see it "as a one-trick pony." (The state of Kansas would very much like us to know that Witchita's "deep-seated, hard-to-fix shortcomings in attracting and retaining educated young adults" shouldn't keep us from moving there, and for what it's worth the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wichita looks like a vibrant community.)

Signing "cohabitation agreements" (or "pre-prenups") in increasing numbers.

Do you think you would benefit from taking a little siesta? Would you be more likely to vote if you could use your cell phone to do it? Is a cohabitation agreement a good idea?
