Blog Post/History Test: Why I wouldn't want to live in Colonial Times.

So. Colonial Times. Not one of the most fun and enthusiastic points in History.
I personally would not like to live in a time like this. Farther back in Medieval Times, maybe. But not when we're first moving to 'Merica. Here are my top 3 reasons why.

1: Harsh Winters.
If you all don't know, I absolutely hate the cold. I can go out in 100 degree weather with a snow suit on and be fine, but the cold just...ugh I hate it. Back in Colonial Times when we were first moving to 'Merica, we had very crappy houses. No offense great, great, great, great, great, great, great Grandpa and Grandma but it's true. And during the Winter, the cold would just leech into the houses like it owned the place. You think you can be warm? Nah, Mother Nature will just be like "One human, two humans, all nice and warm. 3 humans, 4 all cold, now there are no more." Yeah no thank you.

2: Lack of medicine.
I mean, sure, they had "medicine", but not like they do now. It was significantly less affective when it came to illnesses and stuff, and honestly from what I've seen none of them really knew what to do with it.
"Got any Ibuprofin?" "Ibu-what? No! We do however have dried pig skin to lay over your chest hair! It helps get the sickness out!" "..."

3: I would probably be a slave.
Not sure how many of you know this, but I am actually black. Well, African American. "Whiffrican", so Mom calls it. And back in that time, us "Whiffricans" wouldn't be living the good, free life. Nah, we'd be doing everyone elses work and getting hollered at and beaten at the same time. HA. HAHA. HAHAHAHA No thank you. If they paid me or gave me nice food or actually treated me with respect, then I'd maybe be ok with it. But I wont be treated like dirt and be expected to do everything. Nope. Not happening.

Well, those are my 3 biggest reasons I wouldn't like to live in Colonial Times. It was a sad time.
Medieval Times, on the other hand..

  1. I hate to be the one to bust your bubble, but unless you were a nobleman, or a warrior, Medieval Times were not exactly nice. Why do you think they called it the Dark Ages? Nice job putting together a good essay, with a 30 min time limit.+
