    I was a teenager in the 1980s. I used to love Madonna. Ha, ha. Big hair and shoulder pads. I still remember feeling free when I threw out all my shoulder pads and hair spray. :banana:

    The thought of being able to return to those years, has mixed feelings.
    Truly some of the best times of my life, becoming more independent,
    first Love, little responsibilities (compared to 45 years later), entire summers
    of playing one sport or another from sunup to sundown, best friends.
    Tremendous changes, physically, emotionally, psychologically.
    Then some bad times of my life, The transition from innocence to reality, first heartbreak, the actual view of a not so perfect world,
    loosing my Dad, getting a job and "not" being able to play a sport from sunup to
    sundown all summer anymore.

    We can't all fit in the poll... My teenage years were also mostly in the '00s, although I became a teenager in the 90s

    TUG needs some younger people. If we are all old, who will buy timeshares from all the new buyers? There will be no more TUG.

    Hey, In my fifties I don’t consider myself old. I feel young in mind and Heart. I really believe there are many younger people that frequent tug too. Maybe just busier in life to participate like us old folks. When I frequented tug when I was in my 30’s I never participated in the dialogue. I was just a looker.

    It is the older generation responsibility to tell the millennial generation the truth about timeshare and life, the good and the bad. If we do not tell the millennial generation the truth about timeshare buying from the developers, please tell me who is going to tell them about resale, rescinding a timeshare contract purchase and about how to save some big money by purchasing resale. Timeshare is so much more than theses topics.

    Timeshare is about spending quality vacation time with family and friends. Timeshare is about visiting new states & foreign countries, learning & seeing history and exploring how other people are enjoying life.

    Knowledge is Power, not only about timeshare. But about life, people, cultural differences, science, space, democracy, socialism, communism, education, investing, marriage, law, sports, medicine, proper health care, proper eating habits, death and religion. Millennial must be able to know the difference between myth and fact.

    Millennial must stop listening to a 2 minute television conservation to form an opinion and learn how to attain true knowledge by reading from various sources the whole story to attain the truth from myth. IMOP.
    .
    Millennial and the older generation must be able to work together to learn from one another about how to use Knowledge and Power to make this world a better place to live for the next generations. IMOP.

    The older generation much tell the millennial generation the truth about illegal drugs and how they are destroying the United States and the world.

    Knowledge is Power. by Bacon in IMOP.

    I agree with everything you have said. But let me add a few things. Baby boomers must also be able to learn the difference between myth and fact. And the older generation must tell the millenial generation the truth about legal drugs and how they are destroying the United States and the world.

    What an interesting topic. Plus, I find it quite interesting to see how everyone relates certain topics/happenings to their teen years. In my case I tend to use the Sirius/XM Radio analogies. I grew into my teen years with Classic Vinyl, graduated with cassettes into my college years (Classic Rewind), became a an adult & parent with CDs (Lithium), and now have found I like to relive my early years (Classic Vinyl/Rewind) but still enjoy newer but live music by visiting Jam On.

    My teen years were split right between the 80s and the 90s/ the split between high school and college. The key thing, though, is that is makes me a straight-up Gen Xer. And *of course* there are not many of us here on TUG. There aren't that many of us, period. *sigh*.

    This article speaks to our condition. Yes, it's almost 8 years old now and it's STILL topical! :D WARNING: Adult language is used. We are the generation that has been preparing our whole lives to watch the world burn, after all. ;)

    Those were the days, I was 12 in 1970. Grew up in NYC and watched the Jets (JoeWillie) win Super Bowl lll, and the Mets win the World Series, both in '69, the Knicks win the NBA Championship in '70. Led Zeppelin at the Garden in '73 !! Graduated in 1976, that summer moved 700 miles away.
    Went due North, where winter was 8 months a year, in the middle of 52 wooded acres ! At night, the only thing you hear is the wind !! Then the real world happened !

    I need a 2000s option. Additionally, young couples attend sales presentations, come here, and rescind. This, we would also need 2010s option.

    I turned 13 in 1999, so the 2000s is the decade I was mostly a teenager.

    I was in high school from 98-02. It was great that people could not take pictures/film you and put it on YouTube. We didn’t have to deal with online bullying really or things about you getting posted online. I got my first cell phone in 00 and we had AIM but social media as we know it today didn’t exist.

    For better or worse it was easier to be anonymous. I went to a high school of 2500 kids and was a minority student there. Most people had no idea who I was outside my social group.
