What Happened When The 90s Kids Went To High School?

- Page 1

When the generation of kids raised in the 90s got too old to fit in their Disney themed outfits and on our scooters, we were sent to the unforgiving world of high school. But what did we do with it? We made it our own of course! 90s kids were able to use our very slow internet to chat with friends, we got to see the rise of social media and the really cool kids were the first to have cellphones! See how many of these things you remember!

Dial Up Internet

       Giphy    

Can you remember that sound? Did you block it out? Why did it have to make those noises? Couldn't it just be quiet? So many questions regarding dial up internet. Kids today have no idea how lucky they have it. It took SO LONG to load anything - one picture would take fifteen minutes. Ridiculous. Also if your mom wanted to use the phone you were out of luck. Now if the internet takes more than a blink of an eye people are ready to throw it out.

Napster and Limewire = Free music

       Giphy    

The 90s kids knew how to download music. It took essentially all day to download one song, but it was worth it if you could have that new music. I can only imagine how many viruses were downloaded trying to keep up with whatever new Sean Paul song came out. What ever happened to Sean Paul anyways?

Trucker Hats were all the rage

So stylish! Nice and ventilated at the back so you don't overheat because you are looking hot! Trucker hats being worn by people who have never even been in a truck was such a weird trend.

Burning CDs for friends

You had to keep them all in one of these handy CD organizers so that you could have your music with you on the go! Your CD collection said a lot about you, mine said "these are the CDs my friends with high speed made for me because dial-up takes too long so I have no music."

Everyone had a Live Journal

Before Facebook, before Tumblr, before Twitter, there was one source for gently stalking all of your friends or crushes. LiveJournal.com was an online diary that some people took way too seriously. They wrote their inner most thoughts but then published it for the world to see. Luckily you always used a really clever nickname no one would ever be able to guess. Spoiler: Everyone figured it out.

The Rise of Flash videos

       Giphy    

The internet found a way to share viral videos even before YouTube was THE site for viral content. Websites made these ridiculous videos using Flash animation that were sent around to everyone. With classics like Strong Bad emails, Potter Puppet Pals, and Albino Blacksheep, the internet was filled with ridiculous and sometimes interactive cartoons.

10 Totally Rad Pictures Of Malls In The 80s That'll Give You Serious Flashbacks

Nothing was more important to your young adult life than a trip to the mall. Sure, your parents wanted you to focus on your school work, but let's be honest here, that wasn't going to happen.Going to the mall was where you got all the latest gossip, the scoop on the latest music, and of course all of your fashion ideas. Going to the mall either after class, or on the weekend, was pretty much a requirement if you wanted to keep up in school. But it's hard to remember exactly how it used to look. Luckily for you,

Everyone Just Found Out That Neopets Was Run By Scientologists And They Are Not Happy About It

When the internet started being used by kids all around the country, there was one site that we all needed to visit. Neopets was the most important website on the internet if you were between the ages of 10-13. It was every middle school kids most important obsession, other than their beanie babies, but somehow these virtual pets felt more real than our tangible toys. You would pick a creature, name it, feed it, play with it, and take it on adventures every single day. You would spin a wheel, helping you collect neopoints, and you could use those points

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as
