There are certain things I miss about internet in the 90's. Not everyone was online and it was like a secret hideout for geeks. The presence of "trolls" in all internet activities these days makes me really miss the early days of the internet where such things were far more rare because that whole demographic didn't even exist. It also felt like an accomplishment when you made an "internet discovery" like mp3s, for example.
Kitty I agree with you I hate how students is able to bring cell phones and other electronic items into school also. When I was going to school in the 90s, it was the same for us no music players or other electronics in class and the teachers would take them away from us and we wouldn't get it back until the end of the school year if they caught us.
That is what I hate about dating life today I'm 33 and still single still trying to find a decent man but I try to meet guys over the internet on dating sites or on phone chats and then get them to meet in person its like they prefer living behind the computer or phone instead of going out there and meeting in person the old fashioned way.
1. Elementary school- I miss the kids, teachers, field trips, books, recess, etc, but I think I just miss the simplicity in the atmosphere most of all. The insides really hit home for me because the school was small and welcoming, and I live close to it. Every time I drive around it, I just wanna go back in after so many years, but unfortunately, the place closed down now.
This sounds like me. I also miss my elementary school days terribly. I would honestly say it's the only school where I had the most fun and I was at my most happiest. I miss the awesome class parties, thanksgiving dinners, summer camps, computer class, my best friend, playing House and "M.A.S.H.", Christmas shows, and the fundraising Christmas catalogs ( I miss the one I had from 1st grade). 2nd grade was my most favorite one.
There are also times where I feel like visiting on the grounds where my old school used to be and see what the inside looks like right now. I can still remember what the classrooms would look like like it was just yesterday.
I went on facebook to see if anyone else felt the same way, but unfortunately, no one else seems to care. The "good old days" for them was High School, which for me, sucked more than anything. I'll take Kindergardern-3rd grade over grades 10-12 any day.
t seems like the people on my Facebook did find high school more enjoyable than I ever did. i definitely choose Kindergarten-3rd grade over high school!!
got bullied in elementary and jr. high for being the weird kid
I know how you feel. I was once bullied in 3rd grade for no apparent reason and I wasn't so fond of my 3rd grade teacher either, but luckily I had my best friend by my side to sick with me thru the best and the worst of times.
The second half of my elementary school days(4-6) happened in the early 2000s, so I left them out. Although, I look back on them almost as vividly as the grades prior.
The world wasn't so PC. Thanks to the liberals, I feel like I'm walking on eggshells trying not to offend anyone today. You can't even say "Merry Christmas" without being called intolerant/bigoted/or whatever term liberals use.
