10 Ways the World Has Changed Since You’ve Been in School

June 3rd, 2008 by Yano

For those of you who are still in school….improvise!

  1. Cell phones. I was in school in the days of pagers/beepers. When I was in high school, only drug dealers had pagers.
  2. GoogleMaps, Yahoo!Maps and Mapquest. How did any of us get around without online maps?
  3. Democrats vs. Republicans - It didn’t seem so bad when I was in school
  4. Reality Shows - TV programming had actual content…except for MTV, though the Real World back then was actually good
  5. Road Trips were fun - now Road Trips will get you in the poorhouse!
  6. You actually had to have TALENT to be a celebrity - acting, singing, etc. None of this fame whore crap!
  7. All the other countries thought that the US was awesome. Now, not so much.

That’s all I could come up with for now…sorry the list is late!

    My list is up, but it’s half things that have changed, and half things that are still the same.

    Everything changes, so the second half was a test for myself.
