Subject: What was being a teen like in the late 90's?

Written By: GH1996 on 08/06/15 at 3:54 am

Came across a box in my attic covered in dust, opened it up to see year books from the late 90's, 1998 Super Bowl stickers, Cd's (backstreet boys, blink 182, and a CD player..), class of 2000 pin

I'm just curious what it was like to be a high school student/teen then if anyone could answer it?

I thought gas was like under $1 in the 90s. According to some 90s kids like you, who think that gas prices are important to society. (I still like you.)

Is Teen people and Seventeen still popular magazines? They were huge during the late 90s.

There were stars that were popular with the teens like Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy), Brandy, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prince Jr., Aaron Carter, Nsync, and more.

It probably was. I remember it only took $20 for a full tank, if the car was a decent size.

For Seventeen, yes, it's still active and I bet it's still popular. For Teen People, no. Their last issue was released in September 2006.

I remember when teen magazines were popular in the 80's.
