The Things You’d Find In A ’90s Home

Happiness Is Fun

By Pauline Oliver

Happy is as happy does
When all is said and done
Truly being happy
Starts with having fun

Set those happiness endorphins free
To flood your stressed out brain
With lots of happy thoughts
To relax and ease the strain
Eat chocolate
And laugh-a-lot

Chew chilis hot and red
Wear bright colours instead

Keep a dog or a cat
Try yoga on a mat

Feel sunshine warm your being
Seek beauty for the seeing

Classical music wins by miles
Exchanging lots of smiles

That's how to raise your spirit
Lift your body and your mind
This daily dose of happiness
Is a pleasure - you will find.

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.
