Shoutout to childhood.

Overall, I'm a very nostalgic person. Maybe it is because I am constantly drowning in stress because of college and other obstacles that "adulting" forces upon us. Or maybe I just really miss Neopets, but who is to say? Recently, while procrastinating everything in my life, I made the classic mistake of opening Pinterest. After looking at DIY projects that I could never successfully do, I discovered a pinboard of '90s memorabilia.

Though I was born in '97, I still experienced all of the '90s ~aesthetic~ because of my older siblings. Obviously, after scrolling my way through the pinboard I was way too overwhelmed to do any of my schoolwork, so I just went and took a nap :)

Now I hope to do to you what Pinterest did to me and contribute to whatever you're procrastinating by making you strongly yearn for your innocent, stress-free past by listing out some of our favorite childhood gems.

^ STFU, Spider-Man (I'm aware this is Nick Carraway, I swear I'm not that much of a ~uncultured swine~.)

1. Wonder Ball Candy

I would get these at Blockbuster every Friday night (cries).

Also, I found that they are making them again but they're Minion themed, so it's not exactly the same, but at least its something.

2. Beanie Babies

^ Just look at this kid chillin', patting his pet lobster on the back while it rests on his shoulder. Those were the days.

The amount of money my parents probably spent on these things for me is insane. Thanks, mom and dad.

3. Kid Cuisine

I can taste this picture by just looking at it.

4. The Rainbow Fish

If you don't know this book, then it is time for you to culture yourself.

5. Poo-chi the Robot Dog

Honestly, one of the best Christmas presents as a kid.

6.Furbies

Looking back, these things are creepy af but I still love them

7. Doodle Bears

Toys were so much better back then.

8. 90s swing sets

These swing sets were one of the best things growing up.

(Sorry to throwback to the depressing, but great, Fault in Our Stars.)

9. The Sandlot

Two things I know about this movie: 1. Everyone had a crush on Benny. 2. I looked like Ham, the chubby ginger, freshmen year of high school.

10. Skip it

My poor adolescent ankles.

11. Magic slate drawing board

I used to always get these at Cracker Barrel.

12. Ice cream with wooden spoons

^ YES.

13. Old Disney Channel Movies

You know the second these kids started doing touches and floating around that it was movie time.

14. Neopets

Don't even come at me with that Webkinz shit (even though I was obsessed with those, too at one point tbh.)

15. Old TV shows

For real, don't come at me with that Girl Meets World nonsense.

16. Three Little Kittens

Whenever they lost their mittens, my five-year-old self would become so distraught.

17. Everything Lisa Frank

The felt color posters were the best.

18. Nintendo Game Boys

I STILL have my red one.

19. Bop It

This would give me so much anxiety as a child, but I still loved it.

20. Lite Brite

I would always lose the pieces.

21. Gel sandals

Step back Yeezys, this is the truest shoe game.

22. Fisher Price toys

Wow, I miss those simpler times so much.

The list could go on much longer, but the nostalgia is actually overwhelming.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers

109841

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
