Today, I learned about Oliva Rodrigo (I’m listening to SOUR as I write this) and found out that she’s the sixth most streamed artist on Spotify worldwide. I asked my roommates if they heard of her, they all said yes. Damn, am I really that out of touch with the current generation, I said to myself. It made me feel old.
The first time I felt old was when I saw my cousin playing Roblox and Fortnite, two games that were quite different from the Halo and Call of Duty type games I was used to.
Then it happened with Tiktok.
Then again today with Olivia Rodrigo.
Perhaps this is what it feels like to be old…
