Things 90's Babies Remember

Some of the best parts of the 90's.

Things 90's Babies Remember

Now, call me biased, but I think the 90's babies were born in the best century. We were the last children to have home phones with wall cords, chunky white computers with monitors that took ages to turn on, and, of course, all of the following:

1. The old Disney Channel

Thats So Raven, Kim Possible, Hannah Montana. Enough said.

2. The folded notes

This was the 90's version of texting in class. But don't assume it was any easier to pass these babies around and not get caught. You'd pray the teacher didn't see you because they most likely say something like "What is so interesting on that piece of paper? How about I read it aloud?" And then the whole 5th grade class would know about your secret crush on Josh and it wouldn't quite be a secret anymore.

3. Gummy Pizzas and Crabby Patties.

I actually thought these were absolutely disgusting but I still ate them for some reason...

4. The famous multi-colored pens.

This is what we used to write to our bestie about our secret crush on Josh.

5. Paper fortune cookies.

Just admit it... you've made over 400 of these in your lifetime. I get it, trust me.

6. The book-fair days were the happiest days of elementary school.

7. Rainbow Fish.

This was every 90's kids bedtime story.

8. Goofus and Gallant.

The Goofus and Gallant stories were the first thing you went to when you got your Highlights magazine for the month...just admit it.

9. Matilda movie day.

That day in middle school when you had popcorn and juice and got to spend the class watching Matilda after reading the book.

10. Tamagotchis.

You were the coolest kid if you had the V5.

11. Fruit Stripes.

Lasts a good 55.6 seconds before you need a new piece, but its still pretty awesome.

12. Ouch Bubble Gum.

The best gum ever invented. (Besides Fruit Stripes of course)

13. These water thingys.

Do these have an actual name?

14. Flintstone vitamins.

The most disgusting thing ever invented besides gummy pizza and Crabby Patties.

15. Either the best day in gym or a pinched finger.

I was always the pinched finger, sadly.

16. Kids Bop.

We all know how annoying these were but we still listened to them on repeat anyways.

17. Your favorite after-school snacks were Dunkaroos, Gushers, and Cosmic Brownies.

And last but certainly not least......

18. Potato Smiles.

Only the cutest food ever invented...

Her Campus

I remember freshman year like it was just yesterday. I remember frantically walking to my first class with my highlighted map of campus in hand trying to get there early to get a front row seat. I remember learning that college exams are very different from high school ones. Studying the night before an exam just doesn’t cut it like it used to. Through the good, bad and the ugly of my freshman year, I knew everything was going to be OK because I was only a freshman. I didn’t know any better! It was only going to get easier right?

Hannah Cook

August was a long month. This year, it was probably my longest month. It felt never ending. The end of the month felt so far away.

My Ultimate Study Playlist

A list of 50 indie songs perfect for studying.

My Ultimate Study Playlist

Recently, I have started to listen to music a lot more while I'm studying; I've found that it helps keep me motivated and focused, and I have taken a lot fewer study breaks because of it. I had been playing around with what type of music was better to listen to while I study compared to other tasks, for example, the genre of music, tempo, etc. Personally, I have found that I study best when I listen to slower tempo indie music, and for perspective, I have curated a list of my favorite 50 songs to listen to while studying. Enjoy!
