Joke_Master_Mandy Posted February 10, 2007 Author #51 Share Posted February 10, 2007 Longing for the past is called medievalism. It might have a more scientific name but it means that you don't want to walk along with the future. You are content with the way things are. Hard core medievalismists desire to live in the past. Such personalities rarely buy new books. They buy old ones. They hardely ever watch new movies. They only watch old ones. You will never see them in a mall buying new clothes either. I am actualy one of these people. But im the kind who gets comfortable in the present which lasts for a few years and then i finally change my ways a little to adjust to the way things are now if you know what i mean. That's pretty much me, 'cept for the whole buying new clothes part. It's good to know I'm not alone with this feeling. I probably get it from my mom constantly screaming "technology will be the end of us!" coupled with all the depressing things you hear about on the news, about how it's the end of the world and we're getting taken over by 20 countries who are gonna kill most of us and keep the rest of us as slaves. Like I said I just really feel such a strong connection with Victorian era England. I guess it's probably because I'm a more laid back person who likes a simple life. I would never like to live in a place like a big city with a high stress fast paced lifestyle. I just like to keep things simple. I guess you could say I like to kick it old school. I'm just strange like that. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
