Been a month since i last blogged uh-oh, procrastination seems to be hitting me hard.
2015 had been one hell of a roller coaster ride transitioning from army to college and may #2k16 be the start of greater things to come for the Millennials. Growing up sucks, period.
Recently, Audrey shared an article on a topic which exploded on Tumblr bringing us to the burning question of the day: Why is Nostalgia on the rise for the Millennials?
- The last of Generation Y (1995s) has hit the big 21 – All of the Millennials are now officially, adults. Responsibilities are piling up and partying days are numbered. Friendships are strained due to a nine to five, relationships are being put to test with income. Once again, growing up sucks isn’t it?

- Technology advancements – Remember the thrills during a phone raid conducted by the Discipline master in secondary school and owning a phone in primary school was a really rare case for my generation. The wind of technological changes blew real fast and it’s ridiculous for a primary school kid not to own the latest iphone 6s now. We had recollections, memories of the good O’ simple days which lead to reminisce but certainly, not for the “spoiled” Gen Zs. Everything changed so fast. I hardly see any kids building sandcastle or marbles now.

- It’s just not that simple – Recession affected every household. I had seen how my dad struggled during the tough times and honestly, we were kind of blinded by the theory of study hard, get a degree and your future is secured. Not really the case now isn’t it? In conjunction with adulthood, reality sinks in – Life is just not as simple as it seemed from the past.
Nostalgia is a form of emotion, it’s about drawing back the happiness of one self felt before in a former place, time, or situation. Big brands had identified such social trends and had played their cards right. For example, coke had brought back Surge, a release from 1996 in response to a viral campaign on Facebook. The effectiveness of nostalgic marketing had aided in driving KFC ad viral as well.

Personally, I would really wish to see resurgence of brands that went off the shelf to surprise me a little and support their comeback. Alright, till next time. Signing off. 🙂
