The Uniqueness of Now

While going through various prompts trying to find inspiration for my next blog post I found one asking me if I thought that I belonged in this century. Frankly I  think that this century is the best one for me. In fact, I can’t imagine growing up a decade earlier or a decade later.

I am a nineties kid though most of my childhood was in the two thousands. I think that we were the last to have a childhood that was full of going outside to play. Not only that, I think that this is the perfect time to be a teenager. Whether it’s the selfies that we constantly take or the stupid challenges that have been going viral, I love it all.

Now I’m not saying that everything’s perfect but I am saying that it is miserable and magical at the same time. Each generation is very different from the generations that come before or after it, we have yet to see what we can accomplish. I don’t know what makes us so different, it’s probably the increasing influence of social media and the rapid increase communication technologies that have increased our awareness and options.

Anyways, there hasn’t been a time like now and there probably won’t ever be, so we may as well enjoy it while it lasts.

  1. True, we’re the last to have had a childhood that’s been spent almost completely outside, the first to enjoy the internet’s craziness to the fullest!

    On a different note: thanks for joining Teenage Blogger Central! Would you consider putting one of our link buttons up on your blog? That way more teenage bloggers can join 🙂 Hope to see you at one of TBC’s projects soon!

  2. I think the same! I am a ninety’s kid too and grew up playing outside in mud and now we’re in this era full of new inventions and technology. Best of both worlds haha

  3. True dat. It’s really interesting to see the similarities and differences that we have with our parents and our grandparents. Growing up in the age of the internet has definitely mixed things up from when our moms and dads were kids. I often wonder what my life would be like if the internet didn’t exist. . . it’d be weird, that’s for sure! Oh, and I love the “miserable and magical” TaySwift reference!
