Welcome to the Old School Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!
The term “Old School” is actually pretty old school itself. It was first used in 1749 and meant exactly what it means today, that someone or something is sticking to “traditional policies and practices” instead of whatever would have been “state-of-the-art” back in 1749.
But the older generation has ALWAYS complained about the younger generation. And I do mean always. There are quotes going back to Aristotle in the 4th century B.C.E. that prove that the older generation has ALWAYS thought the younger generation was on the road to perdition. Or Hades. Or wherever other than traditional, “old school”, productive adulthood.
“The more things change, the more they remain the same” – a quote that only goes back to 1849. Not nearly so old school, but still very apropos.
What’s the most “Old School” thing that you are hanging on to? For me it’s Classic Rock, which I listened to – on the radio OMG – when it was just Rock. What about you?

I would have to say that the most “old school” thing that I am hanging on to is my music, I still listen to songs from the 80’s and 90’s quite often and from the 60’s and 70’s occasionally. Hope that answers the question. Thank you for participating in the Hop!
