Remembering The 90's, Oh Nostalgia!

I was born in 1992, so I spent the first 8 years of my life growing up in the 90's and they were literally the best of times. It was when kids actually went out to play, technology had only really begun so we had the best of both worlds. 

I've recently noticed that fashion at the moment is very "90's" which for me is awesome because I can revisit my childhood. It also made me think about all the other great things I had/did when I was a child, so I decided to do the 90's tag. Enjoy.

Q1) Favourite Disney Movie?

Easy! Beauty And The Beast. I would watch it over and over until my mum was sick of it. Apparently I would cry every time the beast died even though I knew he would turn into a prince I wanted him to stay as the beast, I fell in love with that guy. While everyone was crushing over the prince's I was crushing over the beast.....says a lot about me. It taught me never to judge someone by their appearance.....good on you Disney.

Q2) Favourite Music Artist/Band?

Just like most girls I was obsessed with The Spice Girls, I remember owning two t-shirts with them on one in black and the other bright orange, I would wear them all the time. Girl Power!

Q3) Favourite Jnr Show?

I had 3 favourite shows, I'm not really sure which one was my no.1 so I'll name them all. Tots TV, Raggy Dolls and Bananas In Pyjamas.

Q4) Favourite Sweet?

Hmmmm, I use to really love those 10p sherbert tubes you know the really long ones....well they seemed super long when I was small, I also use to like the 5p Bubbaloo bubblegums with the different flavoured liquid centers, oh the E numbers :)

Q5) Favourite Game?

Buckaroo lol. I remember going to the shops with my mum after school with my birthday money to buy it. My brother and I would have hours of fun playing it. 

Q6) Favourite McDonalds Toy?

Either the Beany Babies or Betty Spaghetti, they are both equally awesome. 

Q7) Favourite Book?

I loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I don't even know how many times I took that book out the school library and read it. OMG I need it right now!

Q8) Favourite Clothing Store?

I don't actually know for when I was younger I think probably Woolworths but as I got a bit older it was most definitely Tammy Girl.

Q9) What would you watch when you got home from school?

Oh god this is hard. I remember loving Tracy Beaker but I think that was early 2000's. I always would rush home to watch The Queens Nose such an amazing program. 

Q10) Favourite TV show?

It would probably be Sabrina the Teenage Witch or The Powerpuff Girls, both amazing! 

Q11) Weirdest Fashion Trend? 

Tattoo Choker necklace! Really? No, they are vile.

Q12) What would you collect?

I collected many things, Beanie Babies, Tamagotchis and Pokemon Cards being the main ones.

Q13) Favourite Beanie Baby?

I use to love Stretch the Ostrich, I don't know why, and I can't remember what happened to him the only beanie baby I still have is Kuku the Cockatoo. 

Q14) Favourite Game/Console?

I guess it would have to be the Gameboy and Pokemon, I think that's the only game I played though, I wasn't really into games, I remember watching my brother play them loads on the Sony Playstation, I loved watching him play Spyro and Crash Bandicoot but I never played them myself.

So there you have it, what I remember of the 90's. What do you remember from the 90's?

My Internet "Dating" Experience.

So It's been a while since I've been bothered to even look for a boyfriend or have any kind of a relationship, partly because I'm happy just by myself, I don't need some guy invading my space, but also because I honestly haven't been at all bothered, until recently. As crazy as it seems i'm almost 22 and although that is still young, I'm starting to feel like an "Adult" scary!! Majority of the people I went to school with, are married or in long term relationships with children, woah hold your horses there before you get ahead of yourselves! I still feel too young for that, but part of me is a tad jealous as they all seem so grown up and happy with their families and I don't really have anything. Now of course I'm not going to go out there grab any old guy get married and have kids, that's not me at all (much to my mother's disgust lol) and I don't even know if I want kids. The point is my life is passing by so quickly, and it would be nice to be able to share certain experiences with someone other than my cat! Although I do love him! So I thought about joining a couple online dating sites, not thinking anything of it, just as laugh, but my god, what an experience.

So I've come to the conclusion I'm either extremely naive or guys these days are just full on perverted (not all guys of course), maybe it's a bit of both. I'm not even exaggerating when I say 9 out of 10 guys on these sites are just interested in sex, I kind of knew you got weirdo's online and I can never imagine having a full on relationship with someone who I met through the internet as it creeps me out a bit, but I was truly shocked at the amount of guys with in seconds of messaging me were asking me for nude pics or asking me sexual questions, like seriously does that even work? Of course I just deleted them and ignored the messages but It did make me wonder is that what these kind of sites are used for? Call me old fashioned but I'm not into the one night stands, friends with benefits, sleeping with strangers, whatever you want to call it thing, It's just something I don't feel comfortable with, it grosses me out. I have nothing against people who do but for me it's wrong on so many levels. I know nowadays a lot of girls are just as bad as the guys when it comes to sleeping around, and maybe it's encouraged guys more, they feel it's okay to ask inappropriate questions because they sometimes get a response from it. I can safely say I'm not going to be talking/meeting guys online from these so called dating sites, or should I say "sexing sites".

I wasn't sure whether to do this or not, but I wanted to share some of the things I got asked as I had a laugh (mainly out of shock) at the balls of some of these guys. They were pretty upfront.

A 19 yr old: Send me a pic of you naked plz.
( I deleted)

A 51 yr old: Hey, you have beautiful eyes, Are you attracted to older men?
Me: Thank you. I guess, It depends on how old.
51 yr old: I'm 51. Your profile says your 5ft, Small girls turn me on, what are your sexiest features?
Me: Oh, you're quite a lot older than me then.
51 yr old: Yes, I'm very experienced I could teach you a lot, What are your sexiest spots?
( I deleted) Don't get me wrong, I don't mind older guys, but when they are older than your Dad that's just weird lmao.

32 yr old: I wish you were here.
Me: Why?
32 yr old: I'm feeling very horny.
( I deleted)

19 yr old: Send me a picture please, your profile pic won't show.
I send a picture (Of my FACE!)
19 yr old: I like, show me more of you with less clothes.
Me: No, you're alright.
19 yr old: Why?
Me: Because I don't even know you, I'm not into that.
19 yr old: Oh well you're not even that hot anyway. bye

25 yr old: What turns you on? You look like a girl who likes anal.
Me: Are you actually serious?
25 yr old: Yeah, I guess you're not into that then.
(I deleted)

22 yr old: Hey beautiful, fancy having cyber sex, would really turn me on.
Me: No..
(I deleted)

So there you have it, some of the messages I got, Atleast now you know not to do online dating. What a weird bunch of people.....or am I just old fashioned and naive? How can any girl find those kinds of messages attractive seriously. I'd love to know what your opinions are.
