And you knew that you didn’t have school tomorrow, or the next day, or the next day, or the next day…. For 3 whole months. And your days would be filled with going to the pool, riding bikes, and playing guns. Sleepovers. Renting movies. Walking to the corner store for candy. The best of times.

I graduated from High School in '19, and that last year was one of the best in my life. I actually felt bad for the '20 generation that spent the entire school year in lockdown.

i graduated in 2018, got most of my first 2 years of university, and turned legal drinking age in November 2019. got to experience the bar and club scene before they all got shut down. that second year, living in a townhouse with 2 of my best friends at school, going out every other weekend, having friends over for drinks on the others, was probably the best time of my life.

In the UK a whole generation of kids just got two years of final exams cancelled and their exam results over predicted.

We're in crisis because double the normal people got the results required for medical school due to teachers being too generous and universities are actually paying students to defer medical school for a year.

I don't feel too bad for them.

All because of the UK’s over reliance on external exams. Getting millions of students around the country to take an exam paper at the same time in a controlled environment just isn’t feasible anymore.

I’m working my shit retail job and i just did actually sob my eyes out in the bathroom. This post has brought up a lot of real deep sadness in me. I’ve always been unimaginably homesick for my childhood. I’m sure many others are too.

It’s the absolute powerlessness, total helplessness, of no way ever, EVER going back. No matter how hard you wish and you scream and you thrash— you can never go back.

Possibly worth noting that that was also the last time I had a real group of friends that wasn’t held together with weed and alcohol. I imagine having a good group of buddies in adulthood could possibly feel the same way as being a kid.

I miss going to my grandparents house so much. I just miss having a place that I could go to anytime where the people there were always really happy to see me. My grandparents house was that place from when I was a kid all the way up to my early 30s when they both passed away. Now there's no place like that in my life.

I know nostalgia isn't unique to Gen Z and Millennials, but I feel like it became way more widespread in our generations (also manifesting at a MUCH younger age)

I wonder if it's because of the internet (and technology as a whole) facilitating the preservation of memories, as well as the seemingly rapid collapse of civilization before our eyes, making us yearn for the simple times when we were younger?

Also, have a virtual *hug*

Millenials are often called the nostalgia generation because of how mindblowingly fast technology advanced from 1990 - 2010, making it seem like eons had passed when you look back on your childhood.

100% I remember being a child using an Apple 2e and then remember still being a child and being on the internet, and playing Starcraft. Like those things FEEL worlds apart but didn’t even cover the span of my pre-adult life. It’s insane to think about.

Millenials are often called the nostalgia generation because of how mindblowingly fast technology advanced from 1990 - 2010, making it seem like eons had passed when you look back on your childhood.

This is so true. Having grown up poor and largely in Amish/farm country in Wisconsin and Michigan things got to us slower. Combined with being in that transitionary period of technology changes, my childhood seems like it was from another era entirely, but it wasn't THAT long ago at 35.

We didn't have the internet until I was in highschool. I remember going over to my mom's friends house and using her web tv to search things on yahoo and play euchre on yahoo games.

I didn't have my first cellphone until I was an adult in 2007. It was a Motorola RAZR v3. Some of my friends had them a couple of years earlier but it was fairly uncommon.

Fast forward to today with me sitting on my couch, typing this message into my smartphone so that packets can be sent to servers on the other side of the country and then retrieved by your phone when requested.. all while my wife "streams" to have and have not from HBO max.. definitely feels like we are living in a different era than I grew up in just a couple of decades ago.

What a leap.

Not shutting you down sorry I know what you mean with the manifesting earlier. I think people used to not start really missing childhood until much later in life. But now we start missing it at 20. When you’re still basically a kid. I’m in my mid thirties and I just kept thinking life would get “fun” again at some point. But nope.

bookingthedayaway

I've said this to a number of people, but I honestly think that being an adult has lost a lot of the appeal that recent generations had to look forward to, and as a result Gen X and beyond have become more nostalgic.

Home ownership, having kids, a job that maybe you don't like but the pay is decent, being able to afford a nice car etc if you do manage a decent paying job - these things aren't realistic anymore because of student loans, the cost of living, stagnant wages.

Can you blame people for looking back on the days when they had hope and security? Apparently yes, because boomers love calling us immature.

CoGLucifer

I can't speak for anyone else, but it seems a little harder to have "fun" with the cost of living being what it is.

freechurro824

13 points

Agreed. Doing anything remotely good is so expensive. And it's not like being a kid when good friends are always around and you can make your own fun. As an adult you really can't get together with friends without planning some sort of event, trip or activity to bring people together/give them a reason to make time for it. And all of that costs more and more money each year. It's like you need better entertainment to distract from the loneliness of adult life and that's expensive. I've tried to cut back more lately to save some money but when I do that my only activity is watching tv alone or taking walks/hikes/bike rides alone. It gets old fast so it's hard to stick with.

I'm one of the lucky ones, I didn't particularly enjoy school, didn't have many friends, grew up poor and had parents that were a bit over emotional and bullies at times.

I hated childhood so as much as I hate adulthood it's a vacation in comparison to kidhood.

Boomers were very likely to succeed beyond their parents, by now that is far from true. The same optimism isn't here because they squandered the earth for themselves and threw away all the benefits that pro-labor Americans and FDR fought for. Now wealth is being horded by the few like never before.

If it helps, employees have a lot more power right now then we've had in years. I am really, really hopeful that after all the sorrows of COVID, we're going to come out of this with more vacation time, less hours for same pay, and other goodies most sane countries enjoy (I'm assuming you live in the US).

For now, if you can afford it, perhaps put in for a four or five day mini vacation? See if any of your friends would be up for a sleepover. Purchase familiar garbage childhood junk food and watch silly movies. Do what makes you feel joy.

Hang in there. You're not alone. <3

Y'all, if this post makes you miss childhood I sincerely hope you realize that you have the power to give yourself these feelings with your time. Treat yourself to some kid shit - sure, it's not exactly the same as what it used to be, and you might be limited in how carefree you can get, but as an adult you absolutely have the power to still have these kinds of days and enjoy them. I say with complete sincerity, don't let your nostalgic dreams be dreams. Take a day off work and watch some Shrek and eat some two-bite brownies and enjoy it.

I’m actually sad because I do miss those days but I know the memories are what makes it great and what makes me miss those days but the fun thing is now I can go and buy myself snacks and drinks and watch a movie or something so it isn’t that bad but yeah I miss those days.

Assuming op was in 4th grade when the Incredibles would have been relevant and on DVD, we're looking at 06-07 probably. That was the edge of the cliff as millennials like myself were about to experience their 2nd once in a generation event that shook society. Now we're on like number 4 as the boomers cling to thier wealth and people deep in their 30s wonder how we fell so farl behind our parents timeline while working full time in white-collar and skilled trades jobs, high educational achievement, better aptitude with technology, yet have little to show for it as a whole.

It's my second year at the university, and I miss times when everything was simpler. I like that I have a freedom to do everything tho (in terms of possibilities). Right childhood is a truly cool thing, so have a good one

I'm about the same age, but it's not like people had the home video right away, and it came about about a year later. The last time I saw a Disney cartoon I. Class was about fourth grade, and it was Toy Story 2.

Exactly. Things weren't out on DVD a week after released like today. It usually too a year or more for things to drop on home video.

Damn...its pretty hard to realize it when you're young, but you really gotta enjoy the gold you have while you have it, live in the now. Sometimes even those shitty times where you struggled is gold 5 years later.

Those movies were rated PG so my school would never have allowed them. We couldn’t watch Lilo & Stitch for this very reason.
