Since I'm sat here in bed with the lergy, more commonly known as the Cold, I figured how better to amuse myself than to reminisce on my teen years. This whole thinking about my age thing started the other day when someone asked me how old I was and I had to think about it. I was so confused that I had to tweet an old school friend to ask how old I was. I knew the ball park figure, but you know...meh. (And in case there may be any future confusion, on this date I am 23. Only a few months 'til 24 hits me with a sledge hammer.)
Here are some of my favourite 90s memories...
The Spice Girls. Oh yeah! Girl Power and all that jazz.
Titanic. I went to the cinema to see it twice. They didn't think I was old enough to go in so my friends mum had to vouch for the fact that I was 12. I don't think I was 12... Here comes age confusion again. That film brings me nicely to my 2 year crush on Leonardo Di Caprio...
which led to a long time crush on...
...Ben Affleck. Which lead to a crush on...many, many male movie stars. Seriously, the list is endless. Less about my old crushes now! ha
Julia Roberts was in every definitive movie of my teen years. My Best Friend's Wedding, Stepmom, Runaway Bride...All incredibly girly films. What do you expect. I'm a girl. And I think she is sooooo awesome.
Speaking of movies, I loved Clueless. I remember once saying to a friend that I thought I was a bit like Cher. My friend laughed. I never forgot that! I guess if you'd known me in high school you'd have laughed at that statement too. Deluded!!
I know there is so much more that is stored away in my head, but i'm going to need to weedle it out a bit more!
