We are the generation of nostalgia. We grew up in the age of transition. From hand-written letters to electronic mails. From film to digital. We were fascinated by new things, neglecting the way we spend our afternoons. Cupcakes and tea. Play-Doh and Polly Pockets. Young and naive. Technology completely changed the way we waited and we grew up too fast. The simple things in life seems more meaningful now. We grew up in the age of transition and have become the generation of nostalgia.

Nostalgia is a legitimate part of cultural theory. It often derives from certain ideologies. In this case, it’s a desire for ‘simple living’ and permanence. We want to be able to know that things last. This is all very badly worded and explained so try exploring nostalgia and cultural theory online. - Mouse
