Subject: Can you believe we're halfway through the decade?

Written By: Slim95 on 11/04/14 at 1:44 pm

I can't believe it. Time flies! It doesn't feel long ago when the decade started and it was New Years Day 2010. I guess as you grow older time goes by quicker and considering this is my second full decade of being on earth, remembering the first half of 2000s when I was little felt like it lasted a super long time. Do you think we've reached the peak of the 2010s culture yet? Or do you think we'll see some more significant changes happen in the second half of the decade? Still can't believe we're already over halfway through the decade.  :o

I know. I was just in my junior year of high school when 2010 began. Time has passed quickly that we don't even know what's going on. As for the question, I say we have reached the peak because Edm is everywhere in music. Too many reality shows. The youngest generation is rising. And we haven't thought of anything new yet. Hopefully soon we have more genres of music again and not just edm. We actually need a variety of everything. I feel like next year there will be a huge change in pop culture.

A little obscurity from 30 years ago comes to mind:

There's a new world
There's a new dance
There's a new girl on my mind
There's a new song
There's a new beat
There are new people on the floor

Listen to the voices
Listen what they say
Listen to the voices
Listen what they say

Wakk Digge Dugge Baba Dugge Bamanu (repeat)

New world
New dance
New girl
New song
New beat
New people on my mind

New beat

Being settled with a job, I'll have to say that I'm just not in tune with pop culture, say for stuff that's widely popular and can name the biggest movies/TV shows/songs, but not the more in-depth stuff like I can about '90s/most of the '00s. Since the US has now a Republican-majority Congress but still under Obama, 2015 and 2016 should continue the trends of the early-mid '10s so far. 2017 may have a cultural shift though. But the EDM prevelance now is comparable to New Wave/Synthpop's peak towards the end of 1984, so there are parallels to the '80s here (also some economic improvement following a recession to open both decades along with pain at the gas pump easing). The Millenials are quickly becoming parents now much like the later Baby Boomers were at this time in the '80s, much like my own parents.

My thoughts exactly. And it'll be 2020 before ya know it!

As for me, I was born in '80, so my single-digit years were the 1980s and they seemed to progress rather slowly... and the 1990s seemed to go by quickly (although slowly at first). And I remember 2000 as if it were a relatively short time ago.

The passage of time in general is depressing me. So many memories from the 2000s still feel like yesterday to me.

Nintendo 64 still being popular in 2000/2001
Being obsessed with GameCube throughout 2002 and getting my dog that August
Awaiting the release of the first Nintendo DS in 2004
The end of jr. high and the beginning of high school in 2005
Breaking my femur bone in October of 2006
Helping my dad pick out a Christmas tree in December of 2007 and randomly feeling embarrassed because I thought I was "too old"
Taking the ACT test in Spring 2008 and Michael Phelps's historic medal run in the Beijing Summer Olympics
My first semester of college in Fall 2009

Now I'm 24 and it's about to be 2015...I've been out of college for a year and a half and I'm supposed to have started my "adult life" but I don't really feel like I have. Friends -- good friends -- have come and gone. I feel like I have nothing to look forward to at the moment. I wish time would slow down for me.

That was my depressing thought of the day.

For me, time has been flying since about 2003, but these last 5 years have been an absolute blur....what's crazy about it though is that they have been mostly pretty dull....you'd think that would make time go slower but for me it hasn't.

And about early 00s, 2000 feels like it was only about 9 or 10 years ago to me

I begin to realize that the mid/late 00s are getting more and more irrelevant, even though they still feel like yesterday. I finally have to understand that the late 00s today have the same relevance as the late 90s had in the mid 00s.

To me somehow good years appear closer.
If my personal life was good, it feels like yesterday.
If my personal life sucked it feels like so long ago. Save for the early 90's when I was little, I remember the good years more vividly for some reason.
1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003 seem closer to me than 2004-2013. 2002 is somehow both distant and close in a way because the first part of the year was good for me personally but the second was very dark.
While Jan-Nov 2013 appears distant, December 2013 seems like yesterday because it was a very good time.
I block negative memories and years and I remember the good ones vividly. :)

As odd as it sounds the 2010s actually are going by more slowly to me than the 00s did. Maybe because I'm an adult now and I do more things? 2010 seems like quite a while ago to me actually. It's been ages it seems like since Inception and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World came out geez.

True for me, too. So many things happened in 2014 alone as it feels like 2 or 3 years to me. I started a new job, my health finally improved (knock on wood), then I left the job in July, went abroad in August and started university in September. January feels like years ago.

Yeah, one thing that's really weird about getting "older" (relatively speaking of course), is how time seems to go by so faster, but only because you can remember years in the past so much clearer.

Back in 2005, 1990 seemed like another world to me because I had only a few very vague recollections of that year. Now, as 2015 approches, 2000 still seems like it just happened in many respects, because, even though much has changed since then, the memories of that time are still very fresh for me. The fact that 2005 itself, the year I started college, will soon be a decade old is truly incomprehensible, but, to a kid born in 2004, I'm sure it already seems a million years ago.

Same to me, however it was still hard for me to really consider the 90s old until the 2010s. Since there was a 9 in the years, they always felt new and modern.

He was kind of popular over here in the late 80s/early 90s. I think, he was the first singer I have heard of, when I was very young. On the other hand, it was considered pretty uncool to admit to like his music - even in Germany.

I think my family laughed at me when I was mentioning David Hasselhoff, being 4 or 5 years old ...
