Let's Play: Name That Comic Strip

My hero writes a humorous comic strip about a kid (no, he doesn't have a name yet) fresh out of college, the ink barely dry on his diploma. The strip follows his search for an apartment, a job, and just learning how to be a grown up.

I want the title on the strip to be clever, maybe funny, possibly a play on words.

I am at a loss about what to call the stupid thing (as if it isn't hard enough to just name the novel itself, now I have to think up another title... Ugh).

Anyone want to help? Please?

It was a painful several hours, but I got a total of 965 words today. I'm fried and will stop until tomorrow morning.

I now have a grand total of: 14,032 / 50,000

I'm dreadful with names, but for some reason, this came immediately to mind: Flap

Do with it what you will!

All that's popped into my head is "Hard Knocks" (as in the School of *g*).

The Surreal Life -- unless that's already taken by a reality show :)

Name him "Riley" and call it "The Life of Riley"

"How to Grow Up in Ten Not-so-easy Lessons"

"Grow Growing Groaning"

"All Grown Up and Where to Go?"

All I can think of is a play on the Generation X/Y thing, but I don't know how overdone that is:

Generation Why
Generation Next
Generation Wrecks
Generation Ex-
Generation Sly
Generation X-Y-Z
Generation Text

OK, I think I'm going downhill fast...
