I was in my 20s, had a good job, was single and what a great period in my life. The incredible movies, the music, the concerts, the times out on the town. All unforgettable. I really miss the 80s.

Hi everyone,

I am a student currently writing my dissertation. The topic im researching is related to 80s fashion and whether or not it was influenced by political or social change happening at the time.

If you have any spare time could you please fill out the questionnaire attached. It's 11 short questions which ask about trends and influences etc. Any sort of input would be much appreciated. If the link doesnt work try copy and pasting direct into the search box.

Thankyou

I was born in 1980! I feel blessed to have grown up in that era. Some of my favorite things: Ghostbusters, madballs, bigwheels, the Smurfs, E.T., the list goes on.  Back then, I would watch cartoons on Saturday mornings then meet up with some of my neighborhood friends. We would play outside mostly.We would ride our bikes all over town. We would walk to the public pool and spend most of the summer days there - just relaxing and playing games. Then we would go home to our respective houses and I would eat dinner (with the family at a table) - then go to bed or watch a movie.

Now, I sense that things are very different for kids. It's almost like they grow up too fast. In the neighborhood that I live in, I don't see or hear kids very often. I'm pregnant so this concerns me. What will my child's childhood be like?

I talked to a friend of mine with kids. She said that now kids are too busy with sports and other after school activities.  That they spend more time on the computer. Creepy.

Maybe they have their own fun, that we just don't get. But, to me, I really think today's generation is missing out on the simple things that made life good.

Punching Pillows were  pretty cool too!

There are a lot of people who miss those crazy 80-s. Perhaps, it was the best decade ever (for someone). However, every one, who is more than thirty now, remember those times including music, clothing, attitudes towards different things. By the way, I found an exclusive article on music - click on http://skywritingservice.com/blog/music-in-my-life-essay to see what exactly has changed!
