The Things You’d Find In A ’90s Home

The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Remember those elementary school field trips that you took back in the day where you visited homes turned into museums to learn about how our ancestors lived throughout history?  How they had no choice but to do everything by hand, using record players and rotary phones…

 

Well now, kids who didn’t grow up in the ’90s would consider our ways of life to be pretty ancient. So what are some of the things one would find in a ’90s home? For one, every ’90s home had the iconic computer. The ones that no matter what we’re always beige and massive.

 

Every home from this epic decade is also bound to have had a huge TV. Unlike today where less is more, back then, the popular belief was that the bigger the better. Basically, you weren’t cool if your TV wasn’t a big as your garage.

 

Other than technology,  every ’90s home also inevitably had carpets in the bathroom, before people came to the realization that this makes no sense whatsoever.  And if you were to look through the drawers, there would always be floppy disks.
