I Grew Up In the 90s

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 173 People

    Yeah, I Did.

    Why are humans programmed to hold their ages up in people's faces like a freaking trophy?  Age is a number, the amount of time someone has spent on this Earth has nothing to do with what they've gone through in that time.  Don't talk to me about what I do and do not...

    Man! GREAT times in the 90s!

    Ummmm.. I Have a Question:

    Why is everyone else in this group so young? I mean, they're mostly 18-21, so does that mean they grew-up before they were 11?   I grew-up after I was 11; before that I was a child.

    90s Child!

    Born in late 1989....what can I say....I'm a 90s child! We grew up with great cartoons, TV shows, music! Everything. Honestly, it's better than today's crap. Although I like some of today's stuff, but I will never forget the 90s.
