The ’90s

The ’90s  is currently “in” now (this makes me feel very old) and I’m watching a series on Netflix series called The Nineties, produced by Tom Hanks. It’s quite good and I’m finding it really interesting watching the history of the 90’s as an almost 40-year-old, as it differs quite a lot from my perspective of an adolescent during that time.

A couple years ago I wrote a post about ’80s fashion we should bring back (it’s my 5th most popular post) and I came across a draft post about ’90s fashion, but leading to a broader discussion on ’90s culture. I’ve been meaning to write about it but haven’t quite been able to piece together everything I want to express. I think watching the series has put it in more into focus for me so I hope to start working on that again.

I’d like your thoughts. How old were you in the ’90s and what do you remember about it? Where were you living and what were you doing?

I was 9 – 19 years old. I lived in four different states and went to six different schools. I have a lot of memories to share but I want to hear yours first.

  1. In the 90’s I was in my late 20’s to early 30’s. I was working at various jobs I mostly hated, moving entirely too often, and having kids. My husband finished law school, got an LLM, and worked a lot of retail because he couldn’t find a lawyer job. Not the best time for me, except for the having kids part.


    1. How did I miss all these comments? I hope you didn’t feel I was ignoring them!

      That’s such a shame your husband had to work retail even with a LLM. My dad was in a similar situation in the ’90s. He had an engineering degree but ended up having to work as a heating and repair maintenance guy.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 5 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write primarily about my mental health journey (I have bipolar disorder), and I also discuss my deconversion, mindfulness, exercise, music, reading, and other cultural topics.
