50 Things that Changed Our Lives this Decade

December 23, 2009

Since we’re getting terribly close to the end of the decade, everyone is coming out with the decade lists. The New York Times released a list of “50 Things That Changed Our Lives in the Aughts,” which are all pretty accurate, depending on how you live, lol. Here are my top five things that changed my life.

1. Compressed album downloads: Gone are the days of Bearshare, and Kazaa making my computer go apeshit. With sites like Zshare, and Megaupload, I’m swimming in new soft music. So long CDs, and viruses, hello I am…Sasha Fierce a week in advance.

2. Mac going mainstream: From high school, I was reared on a Mac although I came home to a PC. Then through college I insisted on using the Mac section during late night computer lab sessions, then everywhere I interned was strictly mac. In 2005/2006 with the release of the affordable version of Macbook, I took the plunge and purchased one, never looking back. Thank you Apple.

3. Blogs: What can I say I’m a serial blogger, and they serve as an effective distraction. New fave blogs: NYT’s Bitten, White African, Jezebel and Nosalikes:) haha.

4.Facebook: I’ve found sooooo many people I thought I would never see, or hear from again in my life. Some are a pleasure to reconnect with, others could have stayed in the crypt, but its nice to have the option.

5. H&M: Affordable threads with an edge. I could only shop here, and be ok with it.

What changed your life this decade?
