Photos That Are Way Too Real For Anyone Born In The Early 90’s


Remember that glorious time growing up during the 2000’s, wasn’t that great? We all felt victorious for making it into the new millennium and then the world was changing so quickly we could hardly keep up with it.  Lizzie McGuire was our favorite television show and we listened to Britney and Christina on the regular.  So, let’s have a flashback.  Here’s photos that are way too real for anyone born in the early 90’s.

1. These were your rock gods

NSYNC and Backstreet Boys ruled the airwaves during those childhood years and you’ll never forgive your mother for not getting you tickets to their concert when they came to town.

2. You saved your homework on this

Those disks are all but worthless now.

3. You used to prank call people with these

What do you mean people don’t need phone books anymore? Those things were a gold mine (and the only way to figure out someone’s number) back in the day.

4. You were psyched to see one of these

Free internet time!  Woohoo!! That meant time to chat on AOL with your friends…after waiting for the internet dial-up to finish beeping.

5. This was the cause of many tears

You mourned finding one of these things crushed in your driveway.  All that music…wasted.

6. You still don’t know what the rolling ball was for

Do people even use mouses anymore?

7. You always tried to push down more than one color at once

This would stop the pen from working at all and you’d have to perform surgery on the whole thing to fix it.

8. This was the only way to save your high score

Would you believe that there are entire player profiles that can be saved now that show everything you’ve ever done in a game?

9. These made for the most boring days in class ever

This is the ancient dinosaur that was before Powerpoint presentations.

10. Back when gas was cheap

It truly hurts your heart to see how much gas costs now.  Especially because you have to pay for it yourself.

11. This was your treasure trove

You loved sorting through those plastic movie cases to find your favorite one and put it on.

12. This was a nightmare

Looks like you won’t be having any milk today.  Or you’ll end up spilling it everywhere.

13. This was how you passed the time when you were bored

Not only was this the only game on your phone, it was the only thing you could do to curb boredom.

14. This was the worst thing that could ever happen during a test

How are you going to erase things now?  You’re doomed!

15. This was how memories were made

All those cameras…this was the golden age of photography because phones (if they had cameras) took the worst grainy photos ever.  Disposable cameras were the coolest.

16. This was a major burn

You are no longer in the top 4…ouch!

17. This was the result of talking on the phone for too long

This was back when phone had cords…and receivers.

18. It’s a travesty that these no longer exist

You used to spend hours perusing the aisles of Blockbuster searching for that perfect Friday night movie with your friends.

19. This was the only way to listen to music

Before iPods and MP3’s, a walkman was the cool and compact way to listen to music on the go.
