Millennials are defined as anyone born between the years 1981 and 1996. We get a lot of heat for ruining basically everything but really all we want to do is escape from the pressures of adulting by seeking comfort in the memories of our childhood.
If you’re a Millennial looking for a moment of escape, see if you remember these 13 things that contributed to Millennial childhood experience.
1. So satisfying:
Like returning a library book.
2. Ah, youth:
Field trips = school sanctioned adventures.
3. I’m parched:
These will go great with our Hercules plates.
4. Idk about this one:
I remember the texture of these being…weird.
5. I still miss this:
The best phones have physical keyboards.
6. The good old days:
Back when the playground equipment could give you splinters for days…
7. Simpler times:
…and building with these bricks made you feel super strong.
8. Try blowing on it:
Do you see a scratch?
9. Why don’t we still have this?
Forget ball pits! I want to race Mario carts!
10. Ice, ice baby:
11. The evolution of the mixtape:
And the best gift for your current crush.
12. Let there be light:
There once was a time where not every device was backlit.
13. I can’t explain it:
But I remember.
Ah, that’s better. As Millennials we get a bad rap, but honestly, I think we’re lucky. We were lucky to grow up when we did. We got to experience the world before and after the turn of the millennium, and the rise of social media. And no matter how stressful life gets, we’ll always have those memories to keep us going.
Which one of these memories gives you the warm fuzzies? Let us know in the comments!
