Many things have indeed changed over the years. I mean, back during the days, there was no computer. There was no smart phone, no internet, no Facebook or Twitter. There was only plain old "world."
Now, when we hear the word “world," it can refer to all sorts of things. It could be about the internet world. It could relate to the outside world. It could apply to the gaming world. The list goes on. But there was a time when the world only referred to one thing: the very ground we're stepping on.
Back then, when kids felt bored, they would step outside and get some fresh air. They'd go for a brisk walk. They'd go to the library. They could go to the mall or the movies. Buy nowadays, whenever we feel bored we'd just go online. That's an understatement, because nowadays, wherever we may be, we have the need to be online. Whether we're bored or not, we're always online. The internet has become our new life.
