Both my parents were raised in the 70's, they grew up with disco music, Camilo Sexto, Jose Jose etc. They went out on Fridays and had fun in parties, they danced around, kissed. they also played sports, they studied, they basically enjoyed their life.

Now a days, a lot of us would have a lot of trouble living the way they did in the 70's. They didn't have cell phones,didn't have cable TV, they didn't have computers, and worst of all, they didn't have Internet!
I use the Internet nearly everyday of my life. I log in to talk to my friends, I do a lot of my learning online, I study Computer Engineering, so it really helps to aid myself with the online tutorials, I can get a lot of my work done, by reading them. I like to listen to online radio stations from Germany,because I can practice my German, I also love watching German TV, I visit YouTube, and I watch many cartoons, soaps etc from Germany, my German accent has gotten a lot better since I have be doing this.
If you asked me now, I would say that I could not live without the Internet, my life would not be complete. But the truth is, I lived without it for almost 13 years. And I've actually lived with it, for almost 8 years.

I believe that we all get used to living with certain things, but human beings can adapt very easily, so when we are given something new, we adjust to it, and when something is taken from us, we also adjust to live without it. Human Beings have that gift, they can adjust very quickly to different situations, and still feel well. Humans feel well not on the amount of new gadgets that they have, but on the amount of love that they have. All you need is love, love, books and music. With these three factors, I believe we can all be very happy. The rest is just in order to live a little more comfortable .
Future Generations, could live like my parents did in the 70's or like how I live right now, and if they had music, love and books, I could assure you that they'd be happy, they would be able to adjust very well.

I don't really remember knowing anyone who didn't think about their childhood with great joy. Suddenly everything we did when we were growing up seems as if it had been nearly perfect. We don't think much about how we cried a lot the day we scrapped our knee when playing tag in that rocky hill, or how we had gotten really mad at Rochell for not wanting to share her Malibu Barbie with us. Instead we normally think about the great things that went on in our lives. We think about the sunny days in summer, were we would run around in the grass with our ice cream cones, we think about the days were we could spend all day doing bike races, sometimes pretending they were horses, days were we could play pretend and laugh all afternoon.

Yes, we normally remember the good things that occurred in our childhood. Although this doesn't mean that our childhood was indeed our happiest period of time. I think we tend to over rate the past, old folks usually say that the past was far better than the present, in the past, they say, people had manners, people were much more smarter ,easy going etc. Although I don't think, this is always true.

I believe the real problem is that humans, can never be happy in the present. It is until an event has happened, that they can finally state:"...oh yeah, I guess I was happy in that time after all..."
It is only after it has passed, that a person really starts to appreciate it.
That is why, everyone normally says: "Oh my childhood, was one of the happiest time of my life. "
It is an event that has passed, and since we can never be happy with our present, and because we have to be happy with something, we tend to think that our childhood was indeed a very joyful time.

We have all been there. We´re sitting in our living room surfing through the Internet

We´ve all been there, we´re sitting in our living room, clicking through the channels of our television set, when suddenly we hear it. It is that old melodie we used to listen to when we were young, that song that was playing when we got our first kiss.
We listen to it, and suddenly, suddenly we´re taken back for an instance to that place, to that time.
We can see Victor´s face again, we can smell his sweet breath over our skin, we can feel his lips coming closer ,and closer ,and closer, and then... the song is over, and we´re back to our living room,we´re back to our Tuesday afternoon of Soaps.
