For those of us who were born in the ’90s, we just can’t stop talking about the ’90s. We reminisce about great ’90s gadgets, the awesome ’90s cartoons, and tasty ’90s drinks (Surge). We love the ’90s so much it’s almost as if we can’t leave the ’90s.

I stumbled upon this thread of Tumblr posts that hit the nail on the head about our ’90s obsession. It all began with this acute observation from eyebrowgod.

And then everything got super real super quick:

And suddenly it all comes together. I think Tumblr just hacked our generation.

We are a unique generation that grew up on the cusp of great technological transformation, and despite our technological prowess, I think we remain very unsure of which era we actually prefer. TC mark

Hi! Here’s Some Amazing Poetry For You

“I hope your learn how to love yourself the way you love others — unconditionally and without hesitation; deeply, and from the softest parts of who you are. Because isn’t it a shame, that we are so quick to forgive the humanness in someone else’s soul, but we often forget to forgive ourselves. Isn’t it a shame, that we fight for others, we believe in them with such intensity, and such hope, but we often forget to fight for ourselves.” — Bianca Sparacino ✨

“Seeds Planted in Concrete is a very empowering read. It reminds you that you should love yourself first before anyone else.” — Alyssa
