Where are all my Millennials at? Gen Y (as in “Why were we dealt this crappy hand?”) is in the house.
Only true Millennials can appreciate these 11 things Millennials did, that we will never do again. In some cases, for the better, in others…well, let’s just say kids today can’t appreciate how much simpler things were back in the day.
1. Take the packaging off of a brand new CD:
Such a satisfying feeling. That plastic was slippery.
2. Play outside with friends:
A little part of me just died inside.
3. Replace dead batteries w/ partially used batteries:
You want to get your moneys worth!
4. Log into AIM:
*sound of a door opening*
5. Log into Myspace:
Who’s in your top 8?
6. Use T9 to send a text:
I don’t miss this.
7. Find a toy in your box of cereal:
When did plastic spoons that change color in milk stop being cool?!
8. Burn a Mix CD:
Mix CDs were the best gifts.
9. Print out your MapQuest directions:
Mom wouldn’t let me leave home without this.
10. Watch a VHS tape:
Jokes on you! I still have all of my bootleg VHS tapes!
11. REWIND that VHS tape:
Now I’m feeling all the feels.
You whipper snappers may have Disney+ but I had an entire collection of bootleg VHS tapes. Pus Myspace wasn’t nearly as addictive as social media is today, and you certainly didn’t want your parents getting one. Ah, oh well. At least we have the memories.
My fellow Millennials, which one of these do you relate to most?
