A Baby Boomer who Identifies More With Events from Generation X

STORY BY: Jacquie Siepp
YEAR: 1970
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

Jacquie is technically a Baby Boomer (born in 1949), but after seeing BOOM X, she realizes that she identifies much more with Generation X - "because this was the time I came of age". Her memories and experiences of the events from the 1970s and 1980s are much more vivid than the events of the 1950s. And yes, she plays (the soundtrack of) Saturday Night Fever "probably once a week, and every time I bake, that's on!" Thanks for sharing, Jacquie.
