|Writer's Block: Teen Time Machine

If you could be a teenager living in any decade, which one would you choose?
I would like to be a teenager music fan during the time the Beattles first came to the US. Not only was the post WWII life generally less stressful than now, but the country was optimistic and had an innocence that teenagers no longer get. The music excitement, and college years spent in the 60's would be cool. Yes, I guess it's strange that I admire the teen and college years of my parent's era and the baby boomers. Pretty amazing time to be growing up I think.
I spent my early college years going crazy online, really right before and after the internet because a big deal and it really has shaped my whole life, so I'm thankful for that, but still, the puffy skirts were kind of cool. I also wish I could go to a soda fountain. I think dating and gender roles were a bit more clear for teenagers back then and STDs weren't as much an issue.
