Being born in the 1980’s, I had the wonderful experience of growing up in the 90’s – an era that incorporates the biggest changes to ever hit human kinds (besides evolution – if you are into that). The 90’s were a time of discovery and explorations, it was the age when technology came and exploded into our homes with inventions such as the internet and computers.
Here are some of the things only a 90’s kid would know, and it would be alien for generations after the 90’s:
Captain Planet – He’s a Hero. Gonna take pollution down to zero!
Backstreet Boys were the one and only – unless you were into NSYNC
And the Spice Girls represented Girl Power!
You know this by heart
This was the dream
All the cool kids had this gum
You remember the link between the two
You knew how to use Encyclopedia and didn’t Google everything…
You remember watching Lady Diana’s funeral
Writing this blog post has been emotional as I have gone back to rediscover all the things that made my childhood exceptional. In today’s age, it seems impossible to have survived years without a laptop, 3G internet and wireless wherever I am – but it is possible!
These are some of the highlights from my 90’s childhood, which is really a glimpse as it cannot possibly fit into a blog post about the wonderful era. What stands out for you from your childhood?
