Every one is going back in time, is that the point? Maybe try writing it from the future like 50-100 years from now, a grandpa saying to his grandchild 'when i was your age' then you can make it all up and use your imagination to create an interesting future, maybe even a war or something.
I think I might write a short story like this, cheers for the idea teacher!!

It would help to know what your age is?
When I was your age, I witnessed the first moon landing as it was broadcast on live TV. That same year, I watched in horror as Robert Kennedy was shot. I lived through the Vietnam war and witnessed Woodstock.

Are you supposed to write it from a future point (like you're telling your kids/grandkids what life was like when you were 13-16)? Or are you supposed to write about people now who used to be your age?

when i was your age [writing to a kid who's about 7, 8 now]...
it was exciting to get up early on saturday mornings for cartoons
ipods didn't exist, but cd players did
beanie babies, not webkinz, were the craze
soulja wasn't even invented... but the macarena was.
cell phones were rare, unless you enjoyed carrying around something the size of a regular house phone
the most amazing tv shows were on tv: hey arnold, rocket power, doug, rugrats, etc...

Imagine that you are talking to your younger brother, younger cousine, etc.
Tell them something hard, interesting, or funny that is different from the way things are now, or something that you always had to do that you will always remember at that age!
If you do not have younger family members, pretend you are talking to someone at least five years younger than you are.
