I USED TO get frustrated teaching my grandmother how to use the computer, or my dad how to text. I cannot imagine explaining what a “selfie” is to someone who has never even see a cell phone. Technology has always come easily to me, and I feel like I’ve been able to keep up with the pace well. But I often wonder if I’ll get to a point in my life, where pop culture and lifestyle innovations are developing so fast, it makes it hard to let go of the familiar things.
It’s easy to say “Get with the times, man!” but you have to remember — the term “selfie” wasn’t even around five years ago. When I get older, what kinds of trends will piss me off? What sorts of “cool” things won’t I understand?
