For whatever reason, I understood while I was experiencing the ages 13-18 that those were going to be the funnest and most carefree times I would get.  I understood that no boy I was going to have a crush on would be around in the long run. I did not make catty girl drama part of my existence. Honestly, I may actually like who I was then more than who I am now. I liked fun, and if fun was not going to be a part of what I was doing I would either attempt to make it so, or leave it as best I could. Why I have partially ceased having that attitude? I do not know. So, I was thinking about what is similar and different between then and now. There’s a lot. Let’s hastily compare them, shall we!


1994-I learned that if I tape recorded myself dialing phone numbers and replay them into the telephone I would not have to pay long distance charges.

2009-Being that I only use my cell phone, I never pay long distance charges.


1994-The computer meant nothing more to me than Oregon trail and Paintbrush.

2009-I can play Oregon trail on facebook…I live for MS Paint.


1994- Boys are confusing.

2009-Boys are confusing.


1994-I had a job, which I received based on who I knew that required no education.

2009-I have a job, which I received based on who I know that requires no education.


1994-I spend lunch gossiping with the an awesome group of girls.

2009-I serve lunch to middle aged women who gossip.


1994-I dream of moving out and having my own quaint apartment in a trendy part of town and leaving the suburbs.

2009- I dream of owning a house like my parents had in the suburbs and leaving behind this quaint apartment in a trendy part of town.


1994-I wasobsessed with Actung Baby.

2009- I’m anxiously awaiting U2’s next albums which Rolling Stone has dubbed their best since Actung Baby.


1994-I dyed my hair with Kool-Aid and feared what my mother would say.

2009-I dyed my hair with Mani Panic and was told by my mother I was too old for that.


1994- My brother in laws parents purchased a brand new Honda Accord.

2009- I am driving the 1994 Honda Accord passed from my brother in laws parents to him, to my sister to me.


1994-I spent hours playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on NES.

2009-I spend hours playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on Wii.


1994-I learned to play pickle ball in gym class.

2009-I often visit a national pickle ball website looking to see if any new courts have been built near my home.


1994-I’d do anything to get out of the babysitting jobs my mother lined up for me.

2009-I’d do anything to get out of a job to not hire a babysitter for my son Max.

I think there’s enough of the similarities that I should shoot for having that much fun again. Hopefully I can swing it.
