It’s October 21, 2015. It’s a holiday. If you don’t know why, you’re not a real nerd. Today is the day that Marty McFly traveled to in the future in Back to the Future Part II. I was born in 1985, which is Marty McFly’s main year and timeframe. I grew up watching the Back to the Future trilogy. I went on the ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. I watched the terrible cartoon. I feel a personal connection to the franchise. I’ve been waiting my whole life for this day. And here it is. I don’t know how to celebrate. I can’t take a victory lap around the block on a hoverboard. All I can do is blog about it and get the word out. That’s what this is. We are in the future. The future is now. Soon it will be the past. But for now it’s still now and I will take that. It’s Back to the Future Day. Embrace it.
