After using this amazing website to study for the SAT, I've come to realize how many words I do not know and how beautiful some of these words are, describing things that once required many words to describe. So here I am.
Retro is a search for an identity, which invariably leads to the past as attempts to understand its vicissitudes and to relate it to the present are made; because no matter how difficult the past was, and how ingenuous we were then, we gravitate towards it. After all, we still long for it.
Retro, in this sense, is a lifestyle. It is rooted in the trends of the past, and it uses this positive energy to look forward bravely, in spite of the uncertainties and challenges that lay ahead.
