1988 – The year I became a teenager. So many events happened to me during that influential year.
- In early February of that year, I was a 12 year old who did not think when I went sledding. I ended up breaking my left leg in 2 places. 20 years after the devastating break, I ended up having a pinched nerve in that leg.
- I ended up getting braces that year.
- I joined the International Order of Rainbow in early June of that year. I would be an active member of Rainbow until my 20th birthday.
- In June, I was in my aunt’s wedding. I got to see MTV for the first time. The first two videos I remember watching was Gun N’ Roses’ Sweet Child O Mine and D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s Parents Don’t Understand.
These songs remind me of that year of change.
Hubby and I were talking about music and the decades of music that we bring out the nostalgia. 1988 until 2000 were those years for me. I was a teenager and young adult during those years. Different songs from those years remind me of events that happened in my life.
Have a magical day,
