An Early Mid-Life Crisis?

It's so crazy to me how decades and trends come and go with new generations. What was once cool years ago, and then deemed a fashion no-no, has come back into fashion. GenZ has declared that all things 90's and early 2000's are cool again, and I'm not so sure how I feel about that. You see, I was born in the mid 80's, grew up in the 90's and graduated in 04. The fact that kids are telling us that side parts and skinny jeans are out and "Mom Jeans" and platforms are in, just baffles me.

While I loved most of the fashion, music, and television show from the 90's, I might be a little biased. I'm having fun going to stores and checking out what the kids think is trendy, but I'm having flashbacks to middle school and I'm starting to feel old! I was recently reminded that in three years I'll celebrate my 20th high school reunion, and this year my sister will celebrate hers. I don't know how that could have happened or where the time has gone? 

I'll be 35 in a few months, and I really don't feel like my age. It doesn't help that trends from my youth are back in style, and I'm having flashbacks of days gone by. I've been wondering if I should go full-on 90's style, or leave it to the youths, lol. I'm a bit saddened that I don't have kids that I can embarrass at the school pick-up line by blasting Aqua or Jock Jams! But what hurts the most, songs that I grew up listening to are now being played on the oldies station! How is that even possible! The fact that Nick-at-Nite is now Friends and not I Love Lucy hurts my feelings. Or when I told someone that I work with who is barely 20, that I lived for ER and Rescue 911 when I was younger, she had no idea what I was talking about!

You see, I love being in my 30's, and I'm happy to move forward not backward, I'm still having a hard accepting that I'll be 40 in five years. I'm not sure how life seems to be passing me by, and I'm not sure why it's hitting me so hard right now? I'm learning to accept where I am in life, and I honestly feel like my best years are to come! Even though I'm having a hard time dealing with all of the acid wash, daisy shirts, Space-Jam and such, I'm really ready for the next adventure that life has to bring. So youths of today, please march on with new trends that I can be excited about and stop making me feel so old!
