Generation “Gap”

I’ve been trying to find this hashtag that I heard about last week, because there was tweet that sort of spoke to me and how different the generations are. Mainly because I completely disagreed with the tweet but also we’re not so different from the previous generation, we just have different “tools”.

 … One of the tweets got me because they said that

people used to travel on buses/trains without staring in phones…like psychopaths

Now this got to me because although most people now travelling with their phones or tablets. It is really different though? I can remember people reading books and their newspaper, or doing crosswords. I also don’t remember buses and trains/trams talking to complete strangers happily and bubbly, like it was the thing to do? I don’t know about anyone else, but I was taught to avoid strangers, especially when I was by myself.

So is having a piece of technology on a bus/train/tram really that different from having a book or a newspaper? Is it really more psychopathic?

There are different things between the generations, no doubt? But there are some that are just not that different to me.

The Sim Life

One of most favourite games in the whole wide world is “The Sims“. It’s pretty much one of the only games that I can just play for hours. I’m not even kidding, I can literally play it for hours and not even realise the time. If you play Sims like I do, you will probably be able to relate to this article:
