Young College Student Mystified By Tales Of School Before The Internet

As millennials on the older side of the generation, we were actually lucky to have experienced life before the internet was used for everything. It's definitely built character and probably lent us a little extra resourcefulness. Sometimes we feel like our grandparents talking about walking a mile in the snow to school when we talk about the days before smartphones, and this little text exchange between a post-millennial and an older, wiser person will show you exactly why.

    Text - 8:13 < How did any of college work before email? Like what did you do? If a class were cancelled, or there was a mistake on the homework Lol-you had to walk over to the room and there would be a note on the door. What if it was at 8 am? You'd still have to wake up early and walk all the way in? That is correct How would you find out about anything? I have to Text Message Pay

    Text - 8:14 < How would you find out about anything? I have to check my email to find out what ensembles I'm in, and what jobs I'll have to do for the math department every semester You had to write stuff down And it was posted on bulletin boards.

    Text - 8:14 < But how would you read that without walking all the way to the building? Sigh. You had to walk to the building. And had to drive to the campus since was a commuter. That's how I got my first job. It was on an index card on a bulletin board outside of the math building How would you reply if it was on a bulletin? What if they wanted to link something for more details? It just seems so crazy to me 1 Text Message СРаy)
