Things I Miss

Coming from a girl who grew up in the 80's....
  1. Pudding Pops
  2. Weekend family gatherings - like all the family; aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents. And the adults got drunk while the kids jumped off the washing machine onto the 20 sofa pillows on the floor
  3. Board games like; Life, Sorry, Parcheesi, and Backgammon
  4. When stores were closed on Sundays. (And online stores didnt exist)
  5. No mobile devices. Wow
  6. Going to a bar to meet a guy. And actually meeting one & giving your number. And he actually calls you the next day, and asks you out
  7. Less information
  8. Music that would punch you in the gut or rip out your heart. Music made from the soul
  9. When Marketing was simply ads for print, radio or tv. Not invasive psychological warfare against unsuspecting humans
  10. When a person had real anonymity and wasn't tracked with a collection of data being stored about them. For infinity
  11. When people were idealistic for the right reasons
  12. Writing a note to your bff and dropping it in their locker
  13. Slow dancing with your crush at a high school dance
  14. College parties you found out about by a flyer
  15. When friends had more time for each other
  16. Mix tapes recorded off the radio
