Before technology took over and ruined our lives, we used to have a life. It was not just a plain, boring life as most people may assume it to be. It was a lot of fun. We used to have real time, watching shows like Pokemon and Dragon-Ball Z and every other wonderful Cartoon Network cartoon. We used to go outside with friends to play a lot of games. The connection between people was real. Oh, The '90s was a wonderful time to be in.
Every now and then when the 90s kid looks at the children today, they feel a little sad and also nostalgic because they remember the times they used to do some crazy stuff. So let's reflect back a little on the wonderful times of our life, here's a list of some really cool stuff from the 90s that only 90s kid will understand.
When computers were relatively new, almost half the population got them because development and ease. It had a mouse (no you cannot eat it), it was the cursor and used to help people use the computer. Do you remember the strange ball that it had at the back? Wonder what it was used for?
There used to be this particular kind of pen that had a lot of different coloured inks in it. It was the favorite pen of everybody and everyone was crazy for it because they all wanted one. It was so pretty and had so many inks, but sadly you could use only one at a time. But being a rebel, every kid then tried to push all of them down together.
Imagine fitting music systems into your pockets? Sounds tough? Ha, no, it was something that almost every 90s kid used to do in high school. It was tough, no doubt, but it was the only way. You used to literally carry around a music system with you and listen to any song that you wanted to and no it was not that heavy.
Remember there was a scale that used to bend itself and take the shape of the thing it was placed around? After using it too much, it was difficult to use it as a scale, but nobody bought it to be used as a scale anyway. They bought it because it was a lot of fun even though it really did hurt when someone used it harshly on you. But then it was fun. This was also the reason you carried rocks in your pockets. It was also used like a band on your hand.
We all used to collect loads and loads of CD's of the movies that came, mostly cartoon movies. It was a lot of fun and it was a treasured collection. If something got lost or someone took it or it was destroyed, we used to cry our eyes out at that time. Don't even think about jokingly taking it away, if you do that, I may jokingly kill you as well.
Everyone has always tried to be cool, we did too. We did not have those cool mobile phones or something, we had some weird talents. Remember writing and making new fonts? These were really cool, literally half our notebooks last pages were filled with such stuff and then some stupid makeup wannabe cool type quotes and signatures, these were the pages that saw a lot of pens.
When projects were given, people used to do it with all their heart. Use the best paper, draw lines, use pens of different colors and have a good office file with a beautiful cover. It was definitely a lot of effort. But office files were really annoying sometimes. Imagine the horror when you after making your perfect file see that the file's ring is not proper. It was a horror definitely, scared everyone.
Pizza is love, pizza is life, Pizza will be my only wife. Pizza loves you, it understands you. There has always been a never-ending love for pizza. We can just order them and get it. Remember when we used to make prank calls and order them? Oh, kids in the 90s were all crazy.
That comes as a shocked to you, doesn't it? When petrol prices are touching skies, the though that it used to come at affordable prices once is definitely shocking. But yes, it did happen. Gas prices were not so high, actually they were affordable and traveling was not such a huge problem. The scene has now completely changed and you literally need to sell your jewels to fill in your car.
Having mobile phones is so easy, you can text anywhere and talk on the phone anywhere and you do get a lot of privacy with that. Also, if you want, you can just move around while talking on the phone if you want to. Earlier, it was just not possible. Before everyone had a mobile phone, there used to be a single or at the max. 2 telephones in the house. Privacy? Haha, not possible. Just think about extending the phone calls and parents started to taunt you and asked you to rather study. Also, if you, by some luck, continued the conversation for hours the wire used to get different from the sequence.
