Well ladies and gents, we are in the last two years of the 2010s. The decade-defining years are behind us, and now we’re more in a transition mode into the next decade.
The 2010s have been full of social changes, increased technology, long hair, and bright colors. Social Media has gone from brand new technology to the main source of news and communication.
Honestly, it’s hard to even bind 2010 with 2017, because almost everything from music, to clothes, technology, and even politics are so much different. The changes have been dramatic.
Deep down, I really want to know how this decade will end and how the next one will start. I’ve only lived through one full decade, and I wouldn’t consider myself very culturally aware for the first half of it. However, I feel that this is the first decade I’ve seen everything take place from the beginning to the end. I’ve seen the styles change. I’ve seen top songs go from “California Girls” to “Bodak Yellow.” I’ve seen textbooks turn into chromebooks. It all makes me wonder what changes the 2020s will hold for us.
I am optimistic about the final two years of this decade and the decade to come. The 10s will hold a special place in my heart forever, but I’m sure the 20s will be just as fun and have just as many life-changing events, inventions, and more!
