The last of the 90s kids

On June 16th, 2017, there is no refuting it: the end isn’t near, it’s here. We are nervous, excited, we are dreading it from the deepest corners of our stomachs and anticipating it with the highest part of our hearts. Four years of school work, late nights, shared laughter, memes, political upheaval and annoying trends is all coming to an end. The world as we know it is winding down like a 90s film, minus the Alicia Silverstone Clueless voiceover.

The last of the 90s kids may not be high school kids anymore, sure, but on June 16th, it isn’t another end of the world. Not for the seniors graduating, or the underclassmen who toil on. It’s a beginning, a commencement, of the start of our young lives.

Of 90s kids becoming 90s sort-of legal adults.

We grew up on CDs, Gameboys and Bill Nye the Science Guy. On animated classics like The Lion King, and The Iron Giant and every great in between. Reality TV, the outrageous, the blur between news and entertainment, the era of the internet, of technology: these are all things we were born and raised on. These are all things we carried on with us from “the last great decade” and then renovated it into something entirely ours. A new decade.

But none of that is ending, even if high school is. It’s in a constant state of revival.
