Born Just In The Nick Of Time

Once upon a time there was a little girl  born in the 70's. She grew up in the 80's. Became an adult in the 90's. Then turned into a wife and mother in the 2000's. Yes, hello, it's me!

I often hear people say they wish they had been born in a different era. Not me. I think I got the prime year of birth. The changes I have been able to witness are exciting.

At a young age, I got to experience the first day ever of MTV. I remember waking up one morning, going out to the living room where my brother was and turning on the tv. While flipping through channels, there it was. A music video was playing.  We had no idea what we were looking at but  our eyes were glued to the set and for good reason, we were experiencing history being made.

Fast forward to the 1990's when I first experienced the internet. I didn't understand it! I was baffled by internet "chat rooms". I went to visit my friend at college one weekend. I entered her dorm room where one of my friends was on the computer "chatting". I couldn't wrap my mind around it. I just kept asking how she was doing this? Who are you talking to? Do you know them? If you don't know them, WHY are you talking to them? I was utterly confused. It took a very long time for me to embrace the internet.

There you have it (a little taste of it) from the music, movies, pop culture, fashion, hairstyles, technology I have such vast variety of memories. I am lucky to have been born in the 70's!

  1. Amy I was born in 1970. I know you are jealous. Being born in the first year of that decade was amazing to me also. They were fun as a child and of course MTV was the best!
