This whole things got me thinking, what would I claim as "my decade"? Would it be the decade of my childhood? The era whose songs I innocently danced to in my bedroom? The years where I tried to imitate whatever the cool teenage girls were wearing? Where I giggled at slumber parties until the wee mornign hours? Or is "my decade" the one in which I was a teenager and into my early twenties? Those were really the years that I "grew up". The years where I chose my own strange fashions and decided to rebel against whatever was "cool" or "normal". The years where I blasted the music I loved in my car as loud as I wanted. The years where I dated and got my heart broken and started making plans for my future?
If I go with my childhood years, I would have to choose the 80's.
(Man, I love The Wedding Singer!)
If I choose my teenage years, I would have to say the 90's were it.
I guess I'll just take the easy way out and say both! It's interesting to think now what this decade will mean to my kids who are in their own years of growing up and figuring out who they are. What songs and styles and pop culture will they remember?
What about you? What would you say is "your decade"?
PS-- I will definitely post pictures from our 80's party tomorrow night! They may not be up until Saturday, but I think they will be good!
