Things like promo posters and stuff were crazy. Log in to Reply Not having social media Log in to Reply Lack of cellphone and rarity of the internet. Without a phone you just left your house and disappeared into the ether. 90s internet had a nerdy vibe to it. Computers were expensive, internet was expensive, you gramma didn’t have it. So when you met people online they were bound to be other nerds. Now everyone is on Facebook and shit. Your crazy grandmother, your racist uncle, your neighborhood paedophile.

Not aware of all the bad things in the world. I love technology but there’s a lot of times where the digital world comes with a lot of negativity. Constantly being bombarded with depressing news going on in the world, it can be exhausting. Log in to Reply Having to be able to dance in order to be a pop star.

Looking back, the 90’s was this calm oasis sitting in the middle of two paranoid decades. Also, I was in my 20’s and had a full life. Log in to Reply The energy I had. I mean, I was always tired, but back then it was because I was out partying all the time. I turned 21 in the late 90s, and had a kid, and became middle aged over night (I swear I’ve been 87 for the last decade). *Now* I’m tired all the time because I wore myself out when I was, like, 16, and *there is never enough sleep*.
