Who doesn’t like some nostalgia? And a reason to escape the present (uni deadlines, money problems and annoying flatmates though amiright?)
As if we even need a reason to look back and reminisce – with Maroon 5 paying tribute to iconic Nickelodeon show Spongebob Squarepants at the Superbowl last weekend, we decided to dig out some cringe, what-now-seems-crazy-to-even-think-about memories that only people who grew up in the 90’s and early 2000’s will remember..

7. The (limited) hours of free texting
Remember when you only had unlimited texts after 7:30pm on weekdays so if someone texted you at 5pm you had to wait to 7:31pm bcos same.
8. And making up new abbreviations that somehow never caught on
Me: Hows u? Wuu2?
Friend: G2g dinner
9. Lets not forget the chain messages that everyone’s auntie still sends on
My bad luck probably stems from not sending one of these in 2007 to be fair.

You weren’t a 90’s kid unless you were terrified of Furby murdering you in your sleep #fact.
