For me it is the old school video games, nothing like some NES and Atari 2600 to make me relive my early childhood. Certain smells for me are also strong triggers! Strong enough that it kinda knocks me back almost, makes my head dizzy for a quick second with how much I can suddenly remember.

made me think of a time that was really bad for me. There are a few songs I cant listen to because of the nostalgia that goes along with it.
Its pretty interesting how sounds and images of certain things trigger senses in the brain.

For me nostalgia is always a source of discomfort and profound sadness. It brings about a sense of longing for times, people, and places long gone, and a feeling of displacement from the present. .

always a really awesome emotion attatched to it which i get a quick taste of, but can't quite grasp it or place it, and then it's gone. Anyone else get this??
