Back in my day…

8 Jun

I’m sure by now everyone has seen the “Things that won’t make you feel young” that has been bouncing around the interwebs.

But, I was lucky enough to get ID’d at dinner on Tuesday yessssssssssssss still got it. So, I though I would make my own list of some things that never make me feel young.

  1. My interns don’t know what an “away message” is. And the concept of not communicating via away message after a bad breakup is foreign to them. Did I mention that they were all born after 1990?
  2. My high school presentations involved poster board, not PowerPoint.
  3. I had a cell phone that didn’t vibrate and didn’t receive text messages. Not because I didn’t have a text message plan, but because TEXT MESSAGE DIDN’T EXIST.
  4. I think of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as Clarissa.
  5. Miley Cyrus is old enough to be engaged. I used to have “Achy breaky heart” on cassette. Enough said.

TGIF friends.

Back in my day, that meant a solid two hours of Full House, Family Matters, Boy Meets World and Step by Step. And if you were really lucky, you got to stay up after TGIF to watch Snick…all I have to say about that is, are you afraid of the dark?

    haha kids don’t use poster board anymore? and facebook statuses are the new away message, so the breakup concept is still the same! but yeah, still crazy to think about!

      Apparently not! I don’t think they teach cursive writing either.

      All I can say is I have many memories of poster board preso’s from high school–a time when using an overhead projector was considered “high tech.”

        haha omg overhead projectors! though towards the end of our high school i think they were definitely starting to be old school. remember when for group projects we’d have to print out projector slides? what a pain!

        I know! And do you remember the slideshows where there was an audio tape that beeped every time you needed to change a slide?

      I’m sure she will, and she’ll probably watch it on whatever newfangled device is out when she’s ten.

      Do you think she’ll ever know what a CD is? Or experience the thrill that came from playing a new one for the first time? Not quite the same with digital downloads.
