I am a proud kid of the '90s

I am not embarrassed to admit that to this day, I still watch Saved by the Bell– whenever I’m awake early enough, that is. I dare you to find a kid who grew up in the ’90s that didn’t watch Saved by the Bell and can quote/summarize at least 10 episodes. Just like young girls today have to choose Edward or Jacob, we had to choose from Zack or Slater. (Team Zack, all the way)
No matter where I go, if I can find someone my age in the vicinity, we can talk about things we remember from the ’90s.
Like:
- How we know all of the words to the rap from The  Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
- How many Beanie Babies we had and what our favorites were.
- Why Oregon Trail was so frickin’ awesome (just like the old Apple’s with black screens and green font that we played it on).
- Why we still use Clueless lingo in our adult lives.
- What happened to slap bracelets and why don’t we wear them anymore?
- How long our first Tamagotchi lasted.
- Which Power Ranger we related to most on both emotional and physical levels.
- Playing regular Nintendo and thinking it was awesome.
- Why we’re still thoroughly terrified by episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark.
- How lame Spongebob Squarepants is compared to Rugrats and Doug.
- Why kids don’t watch the original animated Disney movies anymore. (aka anything before Pocahontas’ release in 1995)
- What you’re going to do with all your old VHS tapes.
- Why “talk to the hand” doesn’t shut people down like it used to.
For the girls:
- Lisa Frank school supplies.
- Stirrup Leggings. (Don’t be embarrassed, we all wore them.)
- When you and your four best friends would argue over which “Spice Girl” you were.
For the boys:
- Trading Pokemon cards.
- Enjoying the original Ninja Turtle craze.
- Thinking razor scooters were comparable to Marty McFly’s Hoverboard.

What am I missing? I know there’s more.
