Life was better in the 1980s
That was our attitude towards life in the 80s!
Recently my daughter asked me what life was like in the 80s. At first I didn't even know how to start or where. So I started reminiscing and telling her everything I could remember. What car my parents drove, my first love, what clothes we wore, what music we listened to and so on. When I told her all of this, I always had a smile on my face. I fondly remember my youth in the 80s! In the following I have selected a few things that best describe my attitude towards life in the 80s. I hope they can put a smile on your face too.
Sure, there were friendships that broke up quickly, but we had a gang that we were constantly on the move with and spent every free second. We went through thick and thin and helped each other. There were also arguments, but these were quickly swept off the table. I still have a lot of friends today who I've known for ages. We don't have contact every week, but as soon as we meet, it's like before. Just nice to have something like that.
2. Free time
We got up, ate something quickly and were out immediately. We met up with friends, no matter how far away they lived. Get on your bike and off you go. If the weather was bad, that didn't bother us, then we just got wet. Almost every day looked like this for me! Even as I got older, we were always out and about and very rarely at home.
The feet black from playing outside! Do you still know that?
And of course the pants looked like this at the end of the day:
Our television program consisted of “Torches in the Storm”, “Knight Rider”, “The Gummy Bear Gang” or ZDF Christmas series such as “Anna”. The series used to be just better.

4. Our heroes of time
We used to have stars that we raved about or found incredibly cool. Here is a selection of our favorite stars from the 80s.
Michael J. Fox
Our decade has simply produced the best bands. No matter if pop, metal or punk. My top bands were:
If you found someone interesting back then, you had to talk to them. There was no Facebook or WhatsApp. With us it was all or nothing. It took a lot of courage, but there was no other way back then. I think it's a good thing, you got into conversation straight away and got to know each other personally. You spoke to someone from the very first moment. That's one of the things I really appreciated in the 80s!
At the time, it was a luxury for me to own my own car. My first car was a Renault 4, it was yellow and had some rust stains. I still remember exactly, I worked like crazy to be able to afford this car! 😀
We didn't care if the shoes went with the top or if something didn't fit perfectly. What didn't fit was made to fit. Unlike today, however, you weren't looked at straight away if you weren't wearing the perfect outfit. On the contrary, you could dress as diagonally as you wanted and it didn't seem to bother anyone. Except maybe our parents, haha!
