Subject: 2010: The Year

Written By: Visor765 on 09/10/14 at 9:08 am

The 2010s are almost half over, so how about we look back at 2010? I was 14 by the time 2010 started, and turned 15 in November. I started off in 8th grade and by August I started high school. My family made a huge move from one side of the country to another, the last time we made a move that big was back in 1998, although we've moved several times. For my birthday I remember going to a japanese restaurant and while the chef was cooking he used chopsticks to throw shrimp in our mouth and we tried to catch it lol.

A week ago when I was walking my dog I decided to listen to a playlist of the popular songs of 2010 on my iPod, and as I was listening to "Love the Way You Lie", I realized this music wasn't "of the moment" anymore. It didn't feel like just yesterday to me, although that could be because of my age. It's only been four years, but music has changed somewhat. The electronic feeling is still there, but dance music has for the most part faded. It's either disappeared and music is in limbo right now, or EDM has become so oversaturated that it's gone really soft. We've definitely traveled some distance away from that year. What I'm saying is, 2010 doesn't feel new or recent anymore. It doesn't feel like a long time ago, but it feels like some time has definitely passed.

Here are two videos of the biggest hits of 2010:

What are your thoughts on 2010? I'd prefer if the responses were from people within a few years older or younger than me, but people older than that are welcome.

2010 was a great year.  I was 24, living a thousand miles away from home, being totally carefree and stupid but it was fun.  While looking back I can't believe how reckless I was, it was a blast to be living in the moment and it was an experience I wouldn't really trade for anything.  Now I am back in my small, ultra-conservative hometown and its like I've aged 30 years in just five years.

I was 18, becoming an adult legally and I started college. It was a year of changes for me. It doesn't feel distant but a lot has happened since then and it's now such a different time.

2010 was the second worse year of my life, after 2009.  ;D

(Late) 2010 was the peak of my university time which will end early next year.

Furthermore, I did my 4th trip to the States in September 2010 (nearly 4 weeks), so all in all, it was a good year. Probably the best of the 2010s so far.

In my life because I gained a lot of insight in how people work and in myself and that's of course an ongoing process, but you can learn a lot in four years. And I felt increasingly that I am no part of today's teens.
In pop culture too; I went to buy clothes this week and what they have in the store is just really different than a few years back. Its more subdued now or full of patterns.
