Then: By hand or using a really slow, hard-to-find computer or super-heavy, clunky laptop. Hands go dead.

Now: Typing in Times New Roman on a light laptop in bed. Hands still go dead.

8. Distractions and procrastinating.


Then: Sega. Arcades. TV with only four channels. Physically having to make mixtapes.

Now: Streaming services with endless things to watch. Phones.

9. Asking for notes.


Then: Praying someone had handwriting you could read and would be nice enough to let you borrow their stuff.

Now: YouTube tutorials. On. Everything.
