After having a recent conversation with some friends about experiences growing up (which may have been a result of the nostalgic trend throughout the latest forum topics), we got onto talking about things we had missed during our childhood and early teenage years that most of our friends or classmates had been a part of. Being the first-born in my family, I didn't have older brothers to listen to music or watch movies with. Instead, it was my parents who had the biggest influence regarding these activities. The first music I remember listening to was classic rock from the 60s, 70s and 80s. The first concert I went to was unfortunately Savage Garden. No Offspring and no Greenday. My parents weren't too sporty (and I was pretty sick as a child), so I didn't start playing sport until I was 10-11 years old. I still haven't even watched Wayne's World or the Karate Kid. My friend hasn't seen Free Willy, which I found outrageous. FOCUS: What typical childhood encounters, particularly relating to Pop Culture, did you miss out on growing up? Are there still some examples, that even now, you're still yet to experience?
