20 Reasons The ’90s Rocked

The ’90s was a big time in my life. When they started, I was a freshman in high school and when the final day of the decade rolled around, I was a college graduate trying to find my place in the “real world.” Needless to say, the era holds a special place in my heart and I have a ton of wonderful (and not so wonderful memories) from the time.
