Can you believe it’s the last Christmas of the decade? It’s unbelievable how fast time flies by. People have always told me that time will speed up as you get older. Then: I laughed with skepticism. Now: I believe them.
Speaking of getting older, my brother sent me this video about kids born in the year 2000 (aka Generation Z-ers). It was quite stunning how old I immediately felt within the first couple of minutes of watching. I’ve joked about being “old,” after turning a quarter of a century (the big 2-5), but I hadn’t actually felt old until this video. And for that, thanks bro. Love you lots!
To get the full experience of feeling old, I’m going to let you watch it without me spoiling anything for you.
So, how do you feel? Pretty old, huh? If you’ve already been feeling old, I bet you feel really old now. =)
I knew eventually I’d get to a point in life where I’d be able to do my share of preaching to the younger generations about how rough it was growing up in my time, but did I expect it to be so soon? Never. Kids, 9 year old kids, are tinkering with iPhones with music players, internet and media SMS capabilities. I remember having choppy conversations on my dad’s Motorola Startac cell phone as a kid and thinking it was the most amazing thing ever. That’s going to be a fun one to tell.
Although it’s weird and strange, it’s a pretty entertaining reality that so much has evolved in the last 10 years. If anything, I consider myself pretty lucky to have been born in such a unique transitioning time to witness the development and sophistication in technology thus far.
How’s that for a Christmas post?
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day!
