I never have as much nostalgia for my childhood as multiple of my friends and coworkers do.
I grew up in a house that was firmly rooted in the 1960s and 1973s in both aesthetics and with the appliances and furniture that were inside. The paint in and around the house was this nasty pea soup looking yellow color that I hated, and both the dining room and lavatories were covered in the most gaudy looking wall paper I have thus far ever seen inside a home. It was pretty damn awful, especially since our television was also 15 years old and barely got enough reception to watch local television. I wish I had been more thankful for what my parents could afford at the time, however all I can still recall is feeling jealousy and envy whenever I’d go to one of my friends’ houses. I’d get to kneel on their plush sofa couches while playing video games on the newest video game console at the time. Another cool type of feature of our old house that I loathed was the outdated dial control unit for the central Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system. It almost never seemed to work officially, no matter what I did with the controls. You’d set it to a temperature however it never felt right. In wanting to drop the temperature down, the a/c might stop short of what feels adored the right temperature. When you’re covered head to toe in sweat and feeling uncomfortable, it’s strenuous to recognize the control unit when it claims the indoor temperature is three or more than three degrees lower. I was in a house recently that still had one of those old dial control units and it took myself and others back to my childhood. With that being said, it wasn’t glad nostalgia—I’ll take my current smart control unit any day of the week.
