Growing up in the 90's

Cute boys with long hair and flannel shirts

Kurt Cobain is God

Sonic Youth are the saints

Battered Converse Chuck Taylor’s

Listen to Pavement all alone in your room

Go to your boyfriend’s band rehearsal

Live carelessly

Hang out with the Art school kids

Baggy clothes and vintage finds

Start painting

Riot Grrrrlsss


Write diaries, fill them with doodles

Decorate your guitar and your Marshall amp

Doc Martens boots and corduroy men’s trousers

Discover European cinema

So much future, so much promise.

    Growing up in the 80’s:
    Iron Maiden
    Celtic Frost
    Guys in skinny jeans, all stars and loooooong hair
    did I mention Iron Maiden?
    Writing love stories where MIchael KIske is the love interest
    after writing scifi stories where all members of Duran Duran are the love interest and having that story read aloud to the class by your geography teacher when you’re in seventh grade
    Being 13 and thinking you’re as cool as any twenty year old
    Ballet classes
    some more Iron Maiden, just in case!!

    I was a teen in the 80’s and it was damn goooooood!!!

    A decade lost on me, I spent it dressed in 1970s clothes and trapped in a job I loathed! x

    leggings and hippie dresses,
    rock&roll and leather jackets,
    a boy in martens and skinny jeans (he still makes my heart beat faster)
    university, friends, literature, art, coffee, cheap wine…
    oh yes, it was not so bad!!

    Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Kurt Cobain took his life? That list pretty much describes my experience of the 90s, too. Only Eddie Vedder was my god. (Still is, sadly…) Good, good times. :o)

    The 90s were awesome. I look back on it with much fondness.
