When I hear the phrase “The 80s,” the most current thing that pops into my head is the hit Netflix show, Stranger Things. This amazing series is set in the time frame of the 80s and presents tons of 80’s pop culture and trends. After watching the show I felt like I had lived through the 80s in just eight episodes.
Hearing about the 80s from people who actually lived during the time period, made me feel so jealous that I wasn’t alive during those years. If I were to describe the 80’s (from what people have told me about it), I would picture it as a plethora of colors, in a world with endless possibilities. Where anyone could do anything they wanted to do, whenever they wanted to do it. A time of breakthroughs, and exploring the world and all it has to offer. From how everyone reacts to anything related to the 80s, it seems like it was a time period that everyone wants to experience, or experience it for a second time!
I am very excited to learn more about the 80’s trends, music, pop culture references, and how digital storytelling will explore the time period itself!
