A list worth reading

Interesting list if you haven't read it yet.
Beloit College Mindset List for the entering college class of 2014  
A few excerpts:
Most students entering college for the first time this fall — the Class of 2014 — were born in 1992. For these students...  
6. Buffy has always been meeting her obligations to hunt down Lothos and the other blood-suckers at Hemery High.
12. Clint Eastwood is better known as a sensitive director than as Dirty Harry. 
18. Fergie is a pop singer, not a princess. 
27. Computers have never lacked a CD-ROM disk drive. 
Click on the link to read the complete list and for my more mature readers (Smiles) tell me what you think.


  1. Oh, my. It is funny to think of this. I teach 1st grade, so when I see my students' birthdays as 2003, 2004, and so on, I nearly die. That was like, yesterday! Thanks, Buffy!

    Marissa :)

  2. Marissa, wait until you hire people who could be your son or daughter! Now that's way weird. Not to mention it makes you feel a bit old. (Smiles) I think about all of the things my own kids have never seen -- like a record player. I have an old picture/word board book and it's funny to look through it and see all of the things that are no longer a part of our lives -- like a telephone with a cord. Anyway, thanks for sharing today.

  3. LOL, I just threw away a pack of unused floppy disks. :)

    Do you remember twisting the telephone cord when you were talking to your boyfriend when you were a teen? Our kids will never have that. But I guess my hubby doesn't text me, so my daughter will have that when she has a boyfriend...

  4. What?? Where the heck is Hemery High? It's Sunnydale High! ;)

  5. Amy, heck if I know. (Smiles) Came right from the list. So maybe they made a mistake?

  6. I'm a teacher. It occured to me recently that my kids probably don't know what a walkman is!
