Technology is making life so much easier than it was years ago. For example, daily tasks and household chores are simpler, ordering products takes just seconds online, renting movies is as easy as clicking your television remote, and sending and receiving letters takes a few minutes thanks to email. People who were born after the year 2000 will never understand the struggles kids went through while growing up in the 90’s. Looking back at how we used to live is amusing. Kids these days don’t understand how good they have it. So take a stroll down memory lane with us with all the nostalgic moments we’ve listed below.All that time and effort spent in attempts of finding the perfect angle (possibly more time and effort for phone selfies).
