Three:Thirty Thursdays | Episode Two – Throwbacks

Since I have finally fully dedicated myself to this novel, I have to say, it’s pretty exciting. All morning I have been developing my main character [Cadence Prior] and while working on her back story and childhood, I was inspired to create this post. Here’s to some of the most memorable moments of every 90s kid’s childhood:

1. Any and All Things Disney

Am I the only one who wished this would happen? El oh El.

2. MySpace was more than a social network; it was a way of life.

Top 8’s could make or break any friendship/relationship.. but if you were a bit tech savvy like myself..
A little wave of the magic wand and a dash of HTML codes and you no longer HAD a Top anything! No feelings hurt, no love lost.

3. For some strange reason, !t wuz @kc3p+!bl3 2 r!t3 L!k3 +h!$.

Why, Lord, why?

4. Dollz ruled the world. Point blank. Period.

I ALWAYS had a few hours to spare to create these puppies..

5. Where the hell WAS Carmen Sandiego?? And Waldo for that matter.

6. Mathblaster, Cluefinders, and PutPut? Yes please!

7. Milky pens made me appreciate dairy and diary covers that much more.

8. Whenever it was time for a new episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

If you must know, YES.. I was [and am] VERY afraid

9. Rolling your eyes and neck and snapping Z’s in the air was completely acceptable argument etiquette.

10. ‘Nuff said.

Oh that delightful cherry red

11. The closest thing you got to the parenting experience

You think Black Ops is hard? Try keeping this alive for two weeks.

12. Garbage Pail Kids

These little suckers graced the cover of all my notebooks and textbooks

13. … and speaking of textbooks…


14. …and speaking of socks…  


15. No PhD required

16. Who needs an Ipod when you’ve got Hit Clips!

17. Having your mind blown with each new Nintendo installment

18. ..and speaking of Nintendo..


19. Skip It !

20. Hungry Hungry Hippos

21. The Ultimate Ladies’ Man

22. The most ANNOYING little sister

23. Pretty much anything 3D amazes me but THESE…

Sweet Jesus take the wheel

24. Come on and Zoom

25. And finally, the ever dreaded loading screen

All you could do was pray that no one tried using the phone

I know that there are tons more that I haven’t mentioned so drop a comment and share some of your greatest memories!
