When I Was Your Age

on August 5, 2012

How many times have we heard our elders say “When I was your age”…blah blah blah. It’s like a requirement for one generation to compare itself to this new generation of upstarts. Everywhere I go I see people updating their Facebook status or tweeting about how much their life sucks. Kids today have hundreds of cable channels, DVRs in their rooms, smartphones in their back pockets and Wii remotes in their hands.

When I was a kid I didn’t have all these fancy toys. I didn’t have motion capture video game systems like the Wii and Xbox Kinect. I sat on the floor with my controller in hand trying to get Mario to save Princess Peach from King Koopa. Teens today have iPhones, I had a purple pager. That pager lasted a month before my mom found out and took it from me. There were no DVRs in my room, I had a TV with basic cable and a built in VCR.

Instead of wasting $20 on a CD with a couple good songs, we bought tapes that ended up breaking from being replayed so much. We spent the night gossiping with our best friends instead of posting it on Facebook. We didn’t have networks devoted to reality TV we had a network devoted to playing music videos. You didn’t buy books from your Kindle you went to the library and hoped someone didn’t already check your book out. Things were simpler before technology took over our lives. People were closer because we actually spent time together. What happened to the days when you passed a note to your crush that said “Do you like me check yes, no or maybe?” Maybe has turned into “it’s complicated.”

    I think you make an excellent point regarding technology and its role in our society today. I believe an intricate balance needs to exist between capitalizing on the benefits of technology and remembering that human contact is such an important part of our development. Thanks for a thoughtful perspective on such an important matter!

      Thanks for reading and giving feedback I appreciate it! Technology can be a wonderful thing but we can’t let it take over our lives either. You look at things like an fMRI machine which doctors can use to take images of the brain and look for diseases. Or take that one runner from the Olympics for example, it’s amazing that as a double amputee he’s able to continue to run because of the technology that created his new legs. But when it gets to the point that we’ve completely replaced human interaction with online chatting, then I think it’s gone too far. Especially children who spend all day inside instead of playing outside in the sunshine. We can’t let them give up on experiencing life.
