Waving Goodbye to the 90’s

Some may or may not know, but this is the last year that you will ever see freshman born in the 90’s

Freshman Megan Mileski states, “I think that it is kind of cool that I get to be one of the last ones to be born in the 90’s”

Other than saying goodbye to meeting new freshman born in the 90’s, you are also saying goodbye to the joy in having conversations with freshman about what you experienced. There are so many things that are leaving this high school. Next year when you introduce yourself to a new freshman, you will not be able to have a conversation with them about getting up early on a Saturday morning to watch cartoons. Do you remember writing mash notes or making cootie catchers? Remember when you watched Rugrats, Power Rangers, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Do you remember owning a portable tape player or when everything was “da bomb”? A true 90’s baby would collect Beanie Babies. Real 90’s babies would remember The Magic School Bus or Wishbone.

Mileski expresses, “I don’t think that is such a big deal that everyone born in the 90’s are leaving, but it will be kind of weird  talking to someone about something from the 90s if they have no idea what you are talking about.”

Some who were born earlier in the 90’s, may have a different attitude because of what they grew up with. They may not be as selfish due to not having things that kids nowadays have.

Mileski states, “Those born in the early 2000’s may have the same attitude, but those born within the last few years, probably will act differently.”

Now some might say that some of the students here are not real 90s kids just because they were born in the last few years of the 90s. However, they were still born in the 90s whereas the freshmen next year were not.
