36 Things Only 1990s Kids Will Remember.
There are a lot more than 36 things that you could remember from the 1990s. Who Am I to do this to this generation? Don’t you worry, I will not make you cry? No, of course not…
I should probably note here that I’m also technically a child of the ’80s. However, given that I was all of five years old when that particular decade ended, I don’t remember a whole lot from it — mostly vague recollections of episodes of Under the Umbrella Tree and Hypercolor t-shirts. The ’90s though? Hoo boy. Those, I remember, and frequently fondly. While it’s true that we tend to look back on bygone eras through a pair of proverbially pink spectacles — which means that the times likely weren’t as cool when we were right in the thick of them as we remember them later on — there’s no denying that being a kid in the ’90s shaped a lot of us in ways that growing up in other decades might not have.
You know, as odd as the 1990s could sometimes be, there are plenty of reasons to be glad you grew up in the ’90s. I know I have a few — the 21 reasons seen here, for example. Obviously, I am just one person, but there are some things about growing up in specific generations that are more or less universal, right?
The Internet sort of lost its awe-inspiring appeal as it became more and more common — but if you’re a ’90s kid, you’re a member of the last generation who can still recall when going online was a novel experience. There’s something to be said for that, I think.
Of course, this might also be viewed as a disadvantage; it may have left many unprepared for the recession that hit just as a ton of former ’90s kids were entering the real world. But all things considered, there are many, many worse conditions in which to grow up than during a time of prosperity.
What A Day In The Life Of A ’90s Kid Would Look Like?
Of Course, everyone experienced the ’90s differently, and some remember the time more fondly than others. But if you were a pop-culture obsessed, Gen Y adolescent here’s what your average Friday may have looked like.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the epoch of grunge rock, it was the epoch of boy bands, it was the season of frosted tips, it was the season of slap bracelets, it was the spring of the home computer, it was the winter of dial-up, it was…the ’90s.* For many Millennials, the ‘90s is a time steeped deeply in nostalgia. It was the decade that saw us through late-childhood, adolescence, and into early adulthood, a transformational period that now seems softened and safe, even if it didn’t feel that way at the time.
So, I have a little ebook here just to make you remember those years of your childhood. Download it here
