Lately, I've been musing about being a teenager again. It's the change of seasons - when I was 14 or 15, growing up in a small town, the cooler air and the graduate shift to winter always excited me. I'd go out to meet friends, peeling a clementine on the go - the smell of the clementine and the fresh air on my cheeks are still the strongest reminders of freedom and adventure. The 90s were a turbulent, exhilarating ride - sometimes life is now, too, but not as often. So in the 90s:
It was OK to look trashy, individual, cheerfully cheap:
And my favorite movie was Fight Club, gritty and full of raw life:
And my favorite role model was Sara Poley in "GO", lost and bitter yet ready for action:
And I wore a one-piece bathing suit because I thought it makes me skinnier:
And for my graduation party I wore something like this:
And social life was about sitting outside with friend. Just outside, anywhere:
I miss the 90s a lot, and apparently, so does Pinterest, where all these pictures were sourced. I'm roughly guessing there's a whole world of pinners out there reminiscing about teenage-hood again. It's probably the winter. What do you miss about the 90s? Tell me while I peel a clementine.
