Hi, hey, hello guys
Remember those days back when the kids would be playing outside and having FUN with their friends?
Well, let’s just say, technology has taken over the world pretty much.
Which gave me an interesting idea. Why not compare and see how different things have changed over the years?
In the end, I will link some videos that I got inspiration from for writing this post.

Which generation would you be in?
After doing research on this list, I think I rather stay in today’s generation.
Today’s generation is easier. What I mean by easier is how easy you can get connected to the net, how easier it is to contact friends and how easier it is to connect to the world (you guys).
The only con is that kids today are so stuck into technology and so many people age 13-26 are becoming more “mature” earlier on.
Where did I get my inspiration from?
What about you guys? Which generation would you be in and why?
Also, if you have any more to add to the list, feel free to comment that also!
