Danny told us they started Flashback 90s back in 2016. All this was done for fun. “I thought to myself, I would like to share memories from my childhood in the 90s, I wonder if other people on the Internet can relate to the same things. And that’s how the page started and continued over the years,” they shared inspiration. for a brilliant social media project.

The creator of the Facebook page believes that the 90s were the last memorable decade when technology advanced rapidly, but we were not yet consumed by it. Unlike now. Technology used to have a very strong social aspect.

“People tuned in to watch the same shows at the same time every night because it was a topic that could be discussed with classmates or colleagues the next day. Movie rentals aren’t just about choosing a movie to watch, it’s a way for friends and family to get together on a Friday night. Playing video games on Nintendo was something new and fun, you could go visit your friends or family and play for hours on the console!” they shared.

“Waking up every Saturday morning to watch your favorite cartoons and eat a bowl of cereal is an unforgettable experience… Driving to Toys R Us for this hot new toy has always been an adventure! Those times were much simpler, but unforgettable. We could have a camera. phones today and we could write down whatever we want, but I guarantee you that our nostalgic memories are much more valuable. I think that’s why we like to think about the 90s and all those fun moments in life,” they shared their sincere feelings. about their childhood.

KristenBellTattoos.com was interested to hear Danny’s opinion on how they would compare the 90s to 2022. “Let’s just say that if I could travel back in time, I would definitely go back to the 90s. Yes, we have moved forward in 2022. technologically and brought attention to certain topics, but the 90s will always be better! When I think about the 90s, I think about the good times!”

The social media project “Memories of the 90s” highlights the coolest and most unique things of the decade. From technology and food to trends and toys, it all really brings back memories of some of our childhood and teenage years.

The Facebook page is loved by over 279,000 people, and it’s easy to see why. It’s nice to look back at the life we ​​had, the things we used to enjoy. And it can be a great way to avoid our current problems. Even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Some time ago, KristenBellTattoos.com analyzed nostalgia and its role in our lives during a couple of interviews with Kemi Omije, a London-based child and adolescent therapist and member of the BACP.

She explained that our memories of the past can contribute to our sense of self and well-being. Although, not all the time.

“The time period we tend to be nostalgic for is the important moments that stood out. Perhaps this was the time when we felt the happiest or most secure, or perhaps this is the period when everything changed for us, ”she said.

The actual decade (or shorter period of time) we’re nostalgic for doesn’t really matter. What really matters, however, is what the era means to us. “Our memories of the past can change over time depending on how often we return to them, as well as depending on what happens to us in the present,” the therapist said.

“Of course the 90s were better! But then again, I could be very biased here,” Kemi told KristenBellTattoos.com that who we were at a certain time period influences how we perceive it later in life.

“Generally speaking, the best decade is associated with youth and freedom. Nostalgia also often gives us rose-colored glasses to think about. How we reflect on past decades can play a role in how we interact with the current decade.”

The psychologist believes that our childhood forms the basis of who we are as adults. We often return to our childhood, and it affects our present. However, usually we are nostalgic for the time when we were children, only if we really had a good childhood and we felt loved, brought up.

“If we had a difficult childhood, it can be difficult to feel nostalgic, instead it will be like something we need to overcome in order to move on,” explained KristenBellTattoos.com’s therapist.

“Nostalgia can also be a good strategy for coping with times of bad mood and challenges,” the expert said. However, she warned that it could be a concern if it interfered with our daily lives and prevented us from attending.

“If we end up comparing it to our experience today and feel like things are not as good as they were, then it will inevitably affect our mood and our ability to do what we need to do,” she previously told KristenBellTattoos.com.

“We can get stuck in our nostalgia; in this case, it is best to seek the help of a counselor who will help you deal with your past in order to enjoy the present.”

Meanwhile, if you find yourself daydreaming too much, you should start by trying to identify your patterns. “Think about those moments when you usually daydream, is there anything in this situation or those moments that mean you are daydreaming? Do something about it if so. Set a time limit, use a timer if it guarantees you will stop,” she said.

“Turn your dream into a visualization or a goal exercise. Your dreams can be a message about your deepest desires. Could you start planning how to achieve these desires?

Psst, Pandas, here’s a little public service announcement if any of you ever had trouble spelling the nineties in numerical form: it’s either spelled 1990s or 90s with an apostrophe in front. However, if you are talking about a person who is over ninety, then you would write that he is over 90. So yes, you are nostalgic for the 90s, not the 90s or 90s (or, God forbid, 90th).
