Subject: 90s babies are almost finished with high school

Written By: mxcrashxm on 03/15/14 at 11:24 pm

Can you believe that? Most people born in 1996 are graduating from high school in 2/3 months. Time went so fast. I remember them being freshmen and now they are seniors. Now after graduating, most are moving to college where they will work on their careers and earn a degree in the next 4/5 years. Not only that, even all the late 90s babies are in high school with most people born in 1997 graduating next year. This is crazy! One day in 2017, when most people born 1999 graduate from high school, some older people might be  :o :o :o :o :o :o that they are finally done and will be moving on to college. So does this shock some of you guys?

1996..wasn't that last year? Weren't they just born?  :D

I can't believe that people born in the 80s are adults already. I have a niece who's 33 and I still remember when she wet her diapers, seems just like yesterday. 

The older you get....the faster time goes by. It works exponentially, it must.

1962 to 1985 seems to have taken 50 years to go by. 1986-2013 has gone by in about 2 weeks  ;D

Aren't you a '94er yourself, so you are talking about people only 2-5 years younger than you?

What kind of strange is to me: 96ers are legal this year and I start to notice cars with a 96 on the license plate. It's pretty common in Germany to choose the birth year as part of the license plate.

My sister, who was born in 2000, will be starting high school in August. That's amazing.  :o

Nope. '93. Not only that, but they are the last set of friends that I met in high school. After they graduate, I won't have any friends in high school anymore.

They are, but only the ones born in the first half.

So is my cousin. I also can't believe he's starting high school as well. I actually remember him as a baby. Now he's a teenager.

1990 and 1991 are in their mid-20s this year.

Early 20s: 1991-94
Mid 20s: 1988-91
Late 20s: 1985-88

There is not a real reunion culture over here like it is in the US. Some people do class meetings after 5, 10, 15 ... years but it's usually not a big deal.

Well thats true. Back then in the US, people used to go to reunions. Now these days most dont go because of social media where everyone can contact each other.

They're not even finished with jr. high yet. Aren't the current 8th graders born in late '99 - early/mid '00? So after this year they will be done with jr. high. And the first '00s babies will start high school in the fall.

Thats correct. I still cant believe that they are starting high school. Its seem yesterday they were starting elementary.

No, but since I live California, the starting dates for kindergarten is that the kids must be 5 by December or they will have to wait another year.

I was in high school in 2000, now kids born in 2000 will be in high school this year, in another 4 years they will be turning 18 :o.

Even most of the teenagers in high school now have little or no first hand recollection of the '90s/20th century.

I can't believe that 2000-borns are now as old as I was in 2000 - and I did not feel that young during that year.

My cousin's oldest one will be 14 on April Fools Day and so he's starting highschool next year.  Her second one will be starting highschool 2 years after and her youngest one will be starting highschool in the same year that her oldest one will be graduating highschool. 
It's hard to believe that he's a teenager already and starting highschool.  :)

As other people have said, 90s babies won't all be out of high school until 2018 (not counting those who are held back or fail a grade).  By that time, no, it won't seem shocking to me. It's the normal passage of time.

Which is not that far. 4 years can go quickly.

Oh yeah.  The middle one would rather sit and read books than play sports like his brothers do.  His brothers are the ones who play things like football, soccer, and hockey.  My cousin's sister likes to tease him and call him "The Nerd" which to me doesn't accurately describe him.  He really likes math and science so I could totally see him being a scientist or a chemist.  :)
