I’m 61, so I’m definitely getting up there. In many ways, I am a thoroughly modern woman–in my clothing, my full-time job, my lack of domestic skills (sewing? what’s that?), my computer, etc.
BUT…I have retained some of my “retro” ways:
No cable TV
Stick shift car (the old stick shift, not the new kind)
No social media other than a few online forums. No Facebook, etc.
Don’t shop online ever–I’ve never ordered anything online
Still drink sugary sodas and diet sodas.
Don’t intend to decorate my home “shabby chic”!
I listen to CDs, and have no idea how to use “iTunes” or even what it is.
I still subscribe to the newspaper and read it everyday.
My husband is “retro”, too–he uses a typewriter and/or fountain pens.
We heard about a man who lives his life as though this were the 1940s. His home, his wardrobe, his accessories, his car–everything about him is a throwback to the 1940s.
How about you? What “retro” things do you do?
