If you were born before the year 2000, then you probably feel like the world we live in now just doesn’t compare. Who can forget listening to CD’s that our best friends burned for us, watching all the 90’s cartoons, or waiting for someone to get off the phone so we could use the Internet? Ahh, simpler, more positive times, how we miss them so.
