My friend sent me a message shortly before January 1st, saying that the coming of the new year would mean that “the 90’s would be 20 years ago,” or something similar along those lines. In the context of an AIM conversation, I simply shrugged it off with “stop making me feel old -_-” — to which he responded “XDD” — and we just left it at that. But, as weird or as cheesy as it may sound, that statement got me thinking a lot more later that night than I initially believed could come out of a casual online chat. The 90’s seemed so nearby, so tangible, up until the moment I read that statement and realized what it meant. What hit me hardest was that I had come from that decade; the 90’s were my childhood. I grew up there. Now, all of a sudden, another decade has finished; everyone’s saying goodbye to the 2000’s and hello to 2010, leaving behind the past in such a rush in hopes of a better future. I’m 19, going on 20. I am those two decades past.
…My post’s not really deep enough…or maybe too deep…or probably just not developed enough…but anyway, I’ll return to post more later. It was supposed to have some more things in it, but my train of thought just jumped the tracks, and I need sleep to bring it back home. Night, guys. Good luck in the new year and enjoy it thoroughly!
