If you were born in the 1990's, then hopefully you remember all of these moments and items below. Let's take a leap down memory lane and look back to see how awesome and amazing it was back in the day.

1. The Parachute Game in Gym Class

We all used to love lifting up this big parachute, creating waves and running back and forth while it came down over our heads. The best part was being trapped in the parachute with your friends while your gym teacher would tell you to get out!

2. Four Square

Remember teaming up with your friends to get people out? This was the pinnacle of all recesses and was a lot of fun!

3. Scooter Boards

From crashing into other friends or playing scooter hockey, this was one of the best days of gym class that we loved all so much.

4. Game Boy Advance

The evolution of the Game Boy took a turn for the better in 2001 with the Game Boy Advance. We could play our games anywhere and at anytime. Also, we could still play our Game Boy Color cartridges that had our beloved Pokemon games.

5. Before Cell Phones, We Had Bikes

These were the good ol' days. Before cell phones and all that good stuff, we had bikes. We would go to our friend's houses to see what they are doing and if they wanted to play outside or go to the creek to skip rocks. Nowadays, we just send each other a text and are afraid to even ring the doorbell it seems. Where have the times gone?

6. The Original Disney Channel

Don't we all miss this? Right before we saw our favorite Disney shows such as Even Stevens, Suite Life of Zack and Cody, That's So Raven and The Proud Family, we saw this logo. This brings back so many memories and we need this back in our lives!

7. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (PS1)

This was the game to have in your household to play with your friends. From ollie's to 720 kickflips, this was the best game of our childhood. Simple as that.

8. The Hummer We All Wanted

Being a little kid having the chance the drive the infamous hummer car was a blast from the past. Driving around while your parents chase you trying to stop you was so much fun!

9. Motorola Razor

This was the phone we all wanted. Nothing was more cool than flipping this bad boy out of your pocket calling your friends or your mom telling her to pick you up from school. Long battery life with a slick look. Don't we miss those days?

10. Razor Scooter

The razor scooter was the new transportation to our friend's houses and to school along with the bikes. Going down hills on fresh pavement was the greatest feeling. However, we have all been there with the scooter being an "ankle breaker". Even if it just taps your ankle it was very painful, but it was awesome to have.

11. Freeze Tag

Playing freeze tag with your best friends around the neighborhood was a lot of fun with people in funny stances after they were tagged! We had so much energy as kids.

12. Using A Playground As A Pirate Ship

We can all agree that we did this at some point of our lives when we were younger. Kids nowadays don't do this anymore, but remember when we used to pretend that we were pirates defending our ship? Sometime, you could even have a plastic sword and hat to go along with it!

13. VCR

It's crazy to know that kids these days don't know or haven't heard of a VCR. This was a luxury for us back in the day. Our parents would play VHS tapes of our favorite movies and record our favorite shows as well. Times sure have changed.

14. Nerf Football

This type of football was a game changer for indoor football play! To this day, we still sling this nerf ball outside and see how far we can throw it.

15. Bulky TV's

Back then we didn't have high-definition TV's. We had AV cables to play our Nintendo 64's and/or PlayStation One's. These TV's weighed a ton! However, we loved them and their use so we could watch our Saturday morning cartoons.

16. Blockbuster

This was our favorite place to go when we wanted to play the new video game or see a new movie. We would beg our parents so much to take us!

17. Passing Notes in Class

Before we were old enough to have a phone we passed notes to each other.

18. Beyblade

Let it rip! From getting hit in the face to breaking off part of your nail, Beyblade was a lot of fun to play with friends in different types of stadiums!

Looking back, it's amazing to see and appreciate all the things we had in the past when they were popular or were the big thing.

To The Boy Who Will Love Me Next

If you can't understand these few things, leave before things get too involved
32049

To the boy that will love me next, I need you to know and understand things about me and my past. The things I have been though not only have shaped the person I’ve become, but also sometimes controls my life. In the past I’ve been used, abused, and taken for granted, and I want something real this time. The guys before you were just boys; they didn’t know how to treat me until it was too late. They didn’t understand how to love me, until I broke my own heart. Before you truly decide to love me I want you to understand these things.

When I tell you something, please listen.

I’m my own person, I want to be loved a certain way. If I ask you to come over and watch movies with me please do it, if I ask for you to leave me alone for a few hours because it’s a girl’s night please do it. I don’t just say things to hear my own voice, I say things to you because it’s important to my life and the way I want to be loved. I’m not a needy person when it comes to being loved and cared for, but I do ask for you to do the small things that I am say.

Forgive my past.

My past is not a pretty brick road, it is a highway that has a bunch of potholes and cracks in it. I have a lot of baggage, and most of it you won’t understand. But don’t let my past decided whether you want to love me or not. My past has helped form who I am today, but it does not define who I am. My past experiences might try and make an appearance every once in a while, but I will not go back to that person I once was, I will not return to all that hurt I once went though. When I say those things, I’m telling the complete and honest truth. I relive my past every day, somethings haunt me and somethings are good reminds. But for you to love me, I need you to accept my past, present and future.

I’m just another bro to the other guys.

I have always hung out with boys, I don’t fit in with the girl groups. I have 10 close girlfriends, but the majority of my friends are guy, but don’t let this scare you. If I wanted to be with one of my guy friends I would already be with him, and if you haven’t noticed I don’t want them because I’m with you. I will not lose my friendships with all my guy friends to be able to stay with you. I will not cut off ties because you don’t like my guy friends. I have lost too many buddies because of my ex-boyfriends and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that again. If you don’t like how many guy friends I have you can leave now. Don’t bother trying to date me if you can accept the fact I’m just another bro.

I might be a badass, but I actually have a big heart.

To a lot of people I come off to be a very crazy and wild girl. I will agree I can be crazy and wild, but I’m more than that. I’m independent, caring, responsible, understanding, forgiving, and so such more type of woman. Many people think that I’m a badass because I don’t take any negatively from anyone. Just like we learned when we were younger, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Most people can’t do that in today’s world, so I stick up for myself and my friends. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, or their option on how I live my life. The only thing I care about is being able to make myself happy. Even though I’m an independent woman, understand that I do have a big heart. Honesty when I truly care for someone I will do just about anything they ask, but don’t take advantage of this. Once you take advantage of this part of me, all respect will be lost for you.

I’m hard to love.

Sometimes I want to be cuddle and get attention, and sometimes I don’t want you to talk to me for a couple hours. Sometimes I want you to take me out for a nice meal, but sometimes I want a home cooked meal. Every day is different for me, sometimes I change my mind every hour. My mood swings are terrible on certain days, and on those days you should probably just ignore me. I’m not easy to love, so you’ll either be willing to find a way to love me, or you’ll walk out like so many others have.

I’m scared.

I’m scared to love someone again. I’ve been hurt, heartbroken, and beat to the ground in my past relationships. I want to believe you are different, I want to hope things will truly work out, but every relationship has always ended up the same way. I’m scared to trust someone, put my whole heart into them, just to be left and heartbroken again. I sick and tired of putting my whole body and soul into someone for them to just leave when it is convenient for them. If you want to love me, understand it won’t be easy for me to love you back.

When “I’m done.”

When I say “I’m done” I honestly don’t mean that I’m done. When I say that it means I need and want you to fight for me, show me why you want to be with me. I need you to prove that I’m worth it and there’s no one else but me. If I was truly done, I would just walk away, and not come back. So if I ever tell you, “I’m done,” tell me all the reasons why I’m truly not done.

For the boy who will love me next, the work is cut out for you, you just have to be willing to do it. I’m not like other girls, I am my own person, and I will need to be treated as such. For the boy that will love me next, don’t bother with me unless you really want to be with me. I don’t have time to waste on you if you aren’t going to try and make something out of us. To the boy who will love me next, the last thing I would like to say is good luck, I have faith in you.
