What I don’t miss
The incessant drone of a consumer society. What to wear, think, feel, who to be in order to be lovable or worthy and what car to drive.
When I came out of my cloistered life as a student where there was no tv and cellphones were iffy, people were sober and we had to create our own entertainment with each other,
One remarkable thing I noticed was that according to mass media I had the wrong boyfriend and even used the wrong toothpaste! And then after you spend your money on these things, spending money to go out on display so everyone knows you got the message.
At least that’s all on pause for now...
