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.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.
277172

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

8 Old Katelyn Tarver Songs You Probably Haven't Heard

None of her new songs will ever go as hard as "Chasing Echoes" and that's a fact.

Years ago, I found (through iTunes recommendations) a pretty cool female artist. Later found out she was on "Big Time Rush", and then I found out she had some new songs out. I decided to give her new songs a listen, and they're good. However, I prefer some of her older stuff, which sadly isn't on Spotify. Fortunately, YouTube exists, and I'm here to share the best ones.


1. "Wonderful Crazy"

This is just a fun, upbeat song for when you're having a good day. Would recommend playing in your car with the windows rolled down.

2. "Rain"

I have a very specific memory of a time when this song blessed my life, but for all intents and purposes, it is a beautiful and happy song.

3. "I'll Make It Real"

This is a beautiful song with a wonderful message about staying true to yourself. I used to listen to it on the way to school every day my senior year of high school.

4. "Something In Me"

Featured in the greatest show of all time, "South of Nowhere" season 1 episode 6. A very relatable breakup mood.

5. "Love Alone"

This is definitely the second-hardest-hitting song she's ever released. The fact that this is not on Spotify or even iTunes anymore is just not fair.

6. "Favorite Girl"

This one's cute and upbeat, a definite crush mood. Not on the same level as "Love Alone", but it's still underrated.

7. "Closer to My Heart"

Another cute love song. I'll tie it with "Everything" for cutest love song on her first album. Highly recommend both.

8. "Chasing Echoes"

Facts are facts and the facts are that Katelyn Tarver's new stuff could never go as hard as "Chasing Echoes". I can't even begin to explain how deeply these lyrics cut through me when I was fifteen. Even now, this song can take me all the way back. She is robbing us by not making this available on streaming services (or even to purchase). Katelyn, bring this song back, I am begging you.

Anyway, I'm still enjoying the new stuff and am excited to see what's next.
