Patience is a Virtue

Bleh! Blah blah blah. Mumble mumble mumble. Whatever! >_<

Sometimes, I really am sick of waiting. As you can see, patience is not something that I have in abundance. I do have patience for some things, but somethings are a bit harder to wait for. Um, hello? Where's my knight in shining armor? :)

But I do know that I am glad to have grown up in the 1980s and 1990s. I say this because that generation (in North America for the most part) is the last generation to have had a "normal" childhood. The current generation is all about instant gratification.

Need to make a phone call? Bam! Cell phone! (Didn't have one until 2006!)

Need to get on the internet? Bam! Wifi! (no AOL, no whurrring, buzzing, and beeping of the dial up modem. heck, even having to just push an "on" button on the computer, our first one booted up off two big floppy discs!)

Getting married? Bam! Has brand new ginormous house! (must have all the best stuff now)

Want entertainment while on a road trip? Bam! iPad/Movies! (we had books, guessing games, and air band to the Golden Oldies type of music!)

Want to pee? Bam! Pause your show! (had to wait for a commercial and hope that you got back in time!)

Want to watch one show while taping another/or missed a show? Bam! DVR/Hulu/Netflix etc! (first thing I would do anytime I moved or the new fall season would roll around: check out the TV Guide, not the one on the TV but the little book, figure out times and channels and set VCR to record with timers!)

Want to play? Bam! Video game systems and computers! (we had the outdoors, kids from all over the block playing night games, books, and our own imagination!)

Seriously, I could go on and on about this but I have now written this a day late. Hahahahaha! So let me end with this:
