You think you have a bad life because you don't view the latest entertainment? Technology or Clothing? Well Grovers Corner had worse of what you had. Yeah they still had clothing and entertainment but it wasn't like what you had. They had only the basics in life. Now you have iPhones, Flat Screen TV's, Blu-Ray Movies and gadgets that can do all sorts of stuff! They had simple clothing that was nice and formal but now we have all sorts of clothing. The book we read was Our Town by Thornton Wilder.
We all know that back then the only way to contact someone was by mail or going to the person(s) house. Now we have phones/cellphones, e-Mail, texting and social networking sites. So what kind of entertainment do you think they had? They didn't have Monopoly or Mouse Trap. They never had movie theaters or TV's. They never had a App Store full of games and entertainment. Again they didn't have iPhones or a iPad. They didn't have a lot of stuff!! The late 1800's and early 1900's were very different with entertainment, technology, clothing and food. That all combined is a culture trait which is different now then in the Our Town era.
In the book they mentioned they had sports. For example, baseball since George was the best player in the town according to (put persons name here). They could have had football but that was never mentioned. Now we have basketball, golf and tennis. Also those mini sports you play in gym class. One of those from what I can remember would be team handball.
Games were certainly different. Yes they had sports as mentioned above but they had other games to play. Such as jumprope, boomerang, jacks, hopscotch and checkers. So now we have those games but more board games like Monopoly, Sorry, Chutes and Ladders, Trouble and Candy Land. The only one thats a board game probably available back then was checkers. They also never had a iPod Touch and a App store to download and play games!
Technology was different back then it is now. They had the first automobiles in the early 1900's but now we have all different types of cars. Cars are smaller and bigger and have different colors and speeds. They never had cell phones or iPod's. Never had a internet service or a Kindle. They had books and not these new e-Books.
I personally think that it has changed because if you put someone from Our Town into South Portland now, it would be a "smack in the face".
So the late 1800's and early 1900's were different with technology as I reviewed. We still had the sport's, entertainment and games but they were different and less advanced. We had the same sports as back then put invented more. We never had phones or email but got those later on. We had some board games or games to play and invented more later on. So I think that technology back in the Our Town era was different then now.

I was born on September 25th 1997 on a nice fall day. When I was born I had jaundice, so I had to stay about a week for treatment. My family was made of mom, dad and my older sister and a dog, birds and a cat. Fast forward to 2001 where I got my 2nd sister. That year during the fall I started Preschool which was right down the street. I met a lot of new kids and had fun. One of the kids I would see till eighth grade but then he moved. During Kindergarden I made more friends and saw my older sister a lot. She was in fifth grade and her friends loved me. They would hug me and give me snacks. After Kindergarden I switched to a closer school by a few minutes. I think they like re-did the school zones, and where kids go to school. I met more new friends and my friend from Preschool also switched. The school I switched to was also brand new and renovated.
Fast forward many years later to third grade, where I had surgery. Only for my spleen and gallbladder to be removed. I was discharged after three days staying. Then fast forward to the summer of completing forth grade. I went to Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. For about a week. I went to Barbeques/Pool Parties, Museums, Malls and some restaurants. We also met some cousins we never see. It was a fun time because we never see any of our cousins. In fifth grade my older sister got strep throat/mono. She stayed in the hospital for about a week. That made me miss a lot of end of school events.
The summer of completing fifth grade a few things happened. My artwork was featured in Art in the Park hosted at Millcreek Park. I also got my first cellphone that year. In sixth grade I made new friends and got honor roll a few times. That's what happened in seventh grade, except I got a new phone and a school laptop. I also made a youtube account where I discovered a new talent. Film-making and acting which I still do now. I have about fifty five films on Youtube. In eighth grade I was in Drama and Stream Team. I only stayed for one play in Drama. Its just I don't like doing shows for kids. They were all like Kindergartners through third grade. I also didn't like staying after school so late till, like at five even six at night. The Stream Team was a club that cleaned up trash at Millcreek Park and the stream. We actually got in the stream which was cool. I found a expensive watch during it. During winter I learned two things. My older sister was going to have a baby boy. It was pretty cool cause I would be a uncle. It's supposed to be born a few days before my birthday. The second thing was that we were moving. We are moving to Denmark, Maine which is next to Fryeburg and Bridgton. We live right across from a lake and we have wildlife all around us. So far we have Birds, Chipmunks/Squirrels, Beaver, Raccoon, Moose, Bear and Deer. It seems fun that were moving but the only bad parts is were doing everything by ourselves. Were already building the house by OURSELF! Don't forget the septic, power and trees. The property we bought was full of trees. So we had to cut a lot down and stack them into pieces. I learned the school I'm going to is private and people come from all around the world. It's called Fryeburg Academy in the town of Fryeburg. The bus picks us up at six-thirty in the morning when we go there. It's about a half hour or longer trip on the bus.
Also in the summer I went to a amusement park called Canobie Lake Park. We went for the second time and I forgot to mention it during the summer of sixth grade. That summer was when we went for the first time. The best thing after Canobie Lake Park was being a shooting. However it was a fake shooting not a real one. It was at the local middle school and if we do a “What I did for Summer” essay you can learn more. Also this summer I made a Facebook and so far have about 110 friends. Now it's the end of summer and back to school. It's going great so far. The only class I don't like is Gym. I've never liked Gym though at all. So yeah that's basically me and my life.
