Over the weekend, YouTube took it upon itself to peg me as that bitch who’d be down to watch other people’s high school home videos from the 90s.
I mean, you’re not wrong, YouTube. Here for that nostalshit.
I don’t know what I was trying to do there. I can’t make up KEWL words anymore. I’m too old.
Anyway, as I was watching things, I realized some things: I think I’m faceblind when it comes to white males. At least white make teens, I guess. Most of the boys in these videos looked identical to me! And the boundaries! There were none! Teachers touching students! Boys groping girls! Kids these days COULD NEVER.
But the thing that really blew my mind was how much older teenagers looked back then?? That guy in the picture up there was 17 or 18???
No. I won’t believe it. My eyes hath deceived me once again.
The other main thing I noticed was OBVIOUSLY a lack of cellphones and laptops so kids were actually conversing with their classmates and everyone seemed so laid back. Bitch where’s the anxiety? What fidget spinner?
Were the 90s truly the last (moderately) wholesome decade/generation?! I really think so and I am sure this is some scientific study that had been published about this already, but yeah, cook on, Erin. You said it first.
Ok I have to go. Henry just sneezed, unannounced, and completely ruined my night.
