You know you grew up in the 90s when

You know you grew up in the 90s when:

You can finish all the lyrics to this song "In west Philadelphia born and raised..."
You collected every beanie baby you could get your hands on
You had at least one tamagotchi, one gigapet, or one nano baby
Mash was your favorite game to waist time in a boring meeting
You seriously considered naming one of your kids Tapanga
You played pogs in the alleyway at school and everyone was jealous you had the best Slammer in town
You got super excited for Oregon Trail day in computer class
Goosebumps was your favorite series
You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy the green Ranger, were meant to be together
You remember watching The Magic School Bus, Wishbone, and Reading Rainbow on PBS
You remember when Yo-Yos became the most popular thing around
You stayed up playing Mortal Kombat late into the night, learning secret codes that would turn your fighter into a tiger
Internet took forever to connect and the dial up sound was so annoying
You've Got Mail was the best chick flick around
All your school supplies was "Lisa Frank"
You collected all the troll dolls with bright hair, then the troll dolls with jewels came out and you collected those to
Caller ID came out and we had to screen every call
Light up Sneakers and a Walkman were your go to accessories
Crimping your hair every morning was a must
You had a poster of N*SYNC in your locker, in your bedroom, everywhere and Backstreet boys could never compare to them
Windows 95 was the best program
Your mom got the first motorola cell phone and you thought she was so cool
...Furbies
You know what a warhead is
Your bathroom was full of scrunchies and the side pony tail was your favorite hair-do
You remember when your friend cut off your side pony for fun
BRATZ dolls came out
Plaid shirts were in and DJ Tanner was your role model.

It's funny how certain trends keep popping back up, we see 90s style coming in full circle these days and soon enough everyone will be back to crimping their hair.
