My Addiction to Retrojunk
How I became Retro-Junkie
Well what can I say? I am a retro-junkie. Yes, I check this site multiple times a day, and no I am not (in my own opinion) a loser in life.
I remember life vividly growing up in the 90's. I was born in 1986 and I am glad I was part of the 90's generation. Although I didn't know it at the time, the 90's would end and I would think of the best times of my life. We all are here probably for the same reason, to relive the times in our lives where the world was changing rapidly, and everything was new and wonderous.
But why are we Retro-junkies? I bet it is all for the same reason. To relive the good times. Who can't remember when Nickelodeon didn't suck? AAHH! Real Monsters! Rocco's Modern Life, Doug and Rugrats. When creating TV took more than a computer, but television shows used the skills of actual artists trying to tell a story. I remember TGIF. Friday nights staying up late watching TV pretending I thought the adult jokes were funny (even though I didn't get them). Who can't remember the big floppy disks, playing Oregon Trail?
I was introduced to Retrojunk.com when I was a freshman in College. After a 2 year hiatus from retrojunk, I started checking this site daily at work out of boredom (I graduated and joined the Army). However, after a week of reading the articles, I realized how much I have in common with every member on this site. To me, I became a retro-junkie when I realized how much I have in common with the members, and the shared memories we have here.
Thank you all for your memories, and in turn, thank you for helping me relive these memories. Here's to you 1990-1999. While the best decade is gone, it's memory lives forever.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, I wrote this article 15 minutes after registering, so Im still learning.
