A Part of That Generation

For those of you who are expecting a post on Bible prophecy, I’m sorry to disappoint you. I’m going a different direction to lighten things up a little. If you are like me, this may be a bit nostalgic for you.

I was born in 1980 and graduated high school in 1998, so I got to experience some things that my kids think is crazy. I, however, am glad to be a part of “that generation”. 

  • The generation that grew up on TGIF. Friday nights on ABC were full of wholesome sitcoms like “Full House”, “Family Matters”, “Step by Step”, and several others. 
  • The generation that knew Darius Rucker as Hootie, potentially had a crush on Paula Abdul or Debbie Gibson (guys), or one of the New Kids on the Block (girls), and remember when the song “Electric Slide” made its debut. 
  • The generation that wore Vision Street Wear shoes and Billabong jackets (or maybe that was just a thing at Portsmouth Christian School in the late 80s/early 90s).
  • The generation when Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith couldn’t decide if their music was Christian or secular. 
  • The generation that played with My Buddy and Kid Sister and can probably sing the songs from the commercials.
  • The generation who remembers the “Where’s the Beef” lady and after school specials.
  • The generation that walked down Sesame Street and played in Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.
  • The generation that carried a metal lunch box to school and organized their school work in a Trapper Keeper.

I could go on and on. If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, feel free to share a memory. Or if you’re the parent of one who grew up in that era and want to tell something on your kids, they probably don’t read my blog so go ahead. I look forward to sharing memories and laughs.

Now for the grand finale:
