If you were born in the 90's you'll definitely remember these

10 Things You Miss If You Were Born In The 90's

If you were born in the 90's, you know the melancholy, nostalgic feeling you get when you think about the things you had when you were younger. Between toys, candy, cereal, tv shows, and games, somehow things aren't quite the same as when you were younger.

1. Wishing you could get slimed at Nickelodeon Studios

There's something about that colorful building and that bright green slime that was so magical, you probably begged your parents to take you there every day. Props to you if you actually went.

2. Finding out what's inside your wonder ball

After wearing your parents down and getting them to buy this cavity filled candy, you probably got all of the chocolate all over the floor trying to find out what candy was inside.

3. Playing games on cartoonnetwork.com

After you finished your homework, the first thing you did was get on that computer (probably waiting for your mom to get off the phone first) and check cartoon network for new games. I was all about the Powerpuff girls pillow fight.

4.Collecting happy meal toys

You waited all month to find out what the new happy meal was gonna be, and when you did, you begged your parents to take you there every day so you can collect every single one.

5.Getting a new game from Blockbuster

Your parents probably rented new movies from BlockBuster every week, which meant you could get them to let you come, and pick out 3 games; even though you'll probably only play half of one. (If you're like me you'll probably spend your 20's trying to finish all of those games.

6. Smelling Mr. Sketch Scented markers

You're in art class, you come in to find a box of these pretty new markers. Before you can use them, your art teacher tells you not to sniff them for more than two seconds, so you and your whole class spend an entire period passing around these markers and sniffing them anyway. The black Lickerish one never got sniffed though.

7. Playing 7-UP in school

The moment of happiness you got when it was Friday, and your teacher finally agrees to playing 7-up. Even though little billy was probably looking at your shoes when you touched his thumb, you were proud of yourself for not cheating.

8. Field day

Nothing was better than feild day. You get out of classes, you get to play games, you get pizza and ice cream, and the best part of the day was going underneath that rainbow color circle.

9. Video Now

Video now was probably the top present on your Christmas list, and when you got it, you probably spend forever rewatching the two episodes that you had. Nevermind the fact that you could really just be watching it on tv, it was always good for an hour of road trips.

10. Scholastic book fairs

You know that when you got that catalogue for the scholastic book fair, that it was time for the best week of the year. You get out of classes and take all of the money that your parents gave you, and buy whatever books and games that you wanted (even if you didn't read any of them)

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
