90s-kids-art

So time and time again we always read or hear something like “You’re a 90’s kid if” or “Things were better in the 90’s”, the reason for that is because for a lot of people thinks the 90’s was better. Are things more convenient now and are more amazing things available? Well yeah, some of the stuff we have available now were just things in our imagination, but that is not what we meant by “things were better then”.  To be fair though, it seems that every generation tends to praise the decade of their childhood compared to the ones immediately and even way after them. One thing is for certain though, for me and for a lot of other 90’s kids, things were better in the 90’s.

You see it in memes, see a lot of videos regarding it, and hear it a lot from us 90’s kids. When I said “a lot of people think the 90’s was better” I meant a lot of people currently who has a voice today (people in media, or are known in industry), who are coincidentally 90’s kids. I am not saying that what we(90’s kids) say are just biased lies, what I am saying is that the saying is popular because currently the world is run by 90’s kids, give it a decade or two and you will start hearing something similar from the more recent generation.

What are we talking about?  The 2010’s are awesome! We have all this tech, private companies goes to space, and some are even planning to colonize mars, you say? Well, all of that is true but we’re not really saying that we hate the stuff today offers, what we are trying to say is this: Things were simpler back then, there were limited instant messaging, you wouldn’t have a phone if you weren’t rich, and not everything was a web search away. How is that better? Well, it was the sense of adventure and excitement of not knowing everything and having to uncover everything yourself, you gave a love letter to your crush what will she say? You won’t know until tomorrow, unless you go on a mini adventure going to her house or something that would probably mess everything up. The kind of things that think silly today was an amazing ride of life for us, as we had some version of the tech you have today, but we weren’t dependent on it. And besides, some of that tech you are boasting about was developed by the 90’s kid who might have imagined it during those adventures.

You might be a bit irritated about how we say the 90’s were better, but one day you will likely feel the same way. Every generation will reminisce the beauty of the simplicity that they lived with as a child, maybe one day you will be telling someone a decade younger than you that “the 2010’s was better because…” and they will say something like “well, we have light sabers and teleporters now, what so good about 2010’s”, which will just start the cycle all over again.

So in conclusion, let the 90’s kid reminisce, because as you get older you look back and remember the good old times, when things weren’t that complicated, and everything was an adventure, because one day you will feel the same way about your crappy generation.

It has been a long time since I re-visited my 90’s book collection. My mother encouraged me to read a book and finish it within a month or two. After completing it, I would earn another book. It has been our monthly ritual. I would spend a good hour sitting on the corners of our favorite bookstore, scanning books that are interested enough to take home.

Up to now, I still go to a traditional bookstore even if Kindle and other electronic reading devices are more advantageous because of its price, accessibility, and size. I still love the smell and feel of paper every time I turn the pages. The sound effect of Kindly couldn’t match the feel of the real thing. I also enjoy seeing my books stacked on my shelves. I have a library in our house, and it is my favorite spot in the whole world. You will often find me there. Sometimes, I imagine I have a law firm because I got books from wall to wall.

So just think about the horror I felt when I opened my 90’s books and saw a crawling insect on it. I almost threw the book away! I researched for “book pest” on the internet and found out that they were silverfishes. I randomly picked a book from my shelf to check if the one I saw was just an isolated case. It was not.

I only checked a few rows on my shelves to see that the infestation is a major one. I thought what I did wrong. I made sure that I dust the shelves and the books. I do not want to put them to waste. I researched more about the pest, and I clicked on the visit site link on one of the pages.

Luckily, I was led to a pest control office in Denver. It was near our house, and I scheduled a visit. They came to our house and did their magic. I did not see any silverfish after the treatment, but they told me to inspect some of the books that I still wanted to keep to ensure that there were no eggs left. Good thing, the books were clear.

Let me tell you about the titles I was able to save. Who wouldn’t want to rescue these 90’s books?

L. Stein’s Goosebumps Series

I love that I did not have to wait for Halloween to have something scary. It is a big part of my growing up years.

Philip Riddley’s Scribbleboy

I love the natural diversity of characters. Even the way they speak differs.

Jill Murphy’s The Worst Witch

I remember imagining I was Mildred at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. I still remember the fun I had reading this book.

Now, let me just share with you what I learned about storing books. It is best to keep the books stored in boxes lined with plastic or bubble wrap. Then, if you really, really, love the book, you can individually wrap them in kraft paper. Make sure that you inspect the books for pests or molds before wrapping individually. After packing them, you need to store them in a dark and dry place to keep it away from moisture.

boomboxI was born in 1987, so am considered as a 90s kid. As my mother has a collection of the best chinaware cleanly stowed in a glass cabinet in the kitchen, my heirloom for the next generations would be my collection of gadgets during the golden age of music and gaming. Name any gadget during the 90s, I have it: a full blast boombox, a Walkman, a Discman, a CD player, a VHS tape machine with some of the best VHS movie tapes, an Atari, and a Gameboy Black and White among others. Now that I grew out of these gadgets, I kept these things inside a big box inside our family house’s storage room. Although these are now out-dated for use, I treasure them a lot. Some of them could be still used, or so I thought.

One summer, I went on leave so that I could visit my family in the same house I told you about, and my mother said she wanted to set up a garage sale in front of our house. We had a lot of extra and unused stuff inside the house and some were just accumulating space and dust. Let’s just say we all had that similar behavior that compels us to hoard gadgets and equipment and just leave it there when we’re not using it anymore. I was going to agree with my mother, but I thought of my collection in the storage room so I wanted to leave them out. I told her that she should not sell my stuff, but she wasn’t sure which of the things around the house were mine. We went to the storage room so that I could show her my box of gadgets. As we opened the room, I already saw that there was something wrong with the stuff so I quickly went to my box, which was in the farthest corner of the room. As I opened my box, my suspicion was confirmed.My mother got so disgusted of the room that she went straight out and started scratching unconsciously.

There were different kinds of bugs in all the stored things in there, but my stuff was mostly covered in ants. Now I see that those little things like to go inside gadgets and destroy the parts from inside. When I got to talk to my mother, she admitted that they had been in the house for a while, and that was why she wanted a garage sale so we could lessen the bugs coming in. Well I said I had a better idea. I remembered a childhood friend talking about NPM greenpro pest control services around the city, so I contacted him to ask for recommendations. I eventually picked the best one and had the exterminators come to the house the same day. It was an emergency since my mother said they had been there for a longer time, and the situation could be much worse.

At the end of the day, we had searched the whole house for other infestations, but it seemed that the storage room was the only one with the bugs. The exterminators were very patient with us going through all the rooms. At first, my mother was worried that her plants around the house could get affected by the chemicals, but the exterminators assured that they were certified as an eco-friendly service. It seemed that it was true since nothing bad happened to the plants. In short, my mother was delighted of their service that she kept their contact number for future reference. By the end of the week, we had collected all of the things for the garage sale. The family set it up and most of the gadgets and equipment were sold. We just hit two birds with one stone: a general house cleaning and money earning.

First off, I recommend a vacation in UAE with Summit Yachts, everything is just lovely there, and with this particular yacht rental company it is a whole different experience. Now, onto our list! If you feel like going on vacation and charter a yacht while at it I highly recommend any of the places in this list.

1.) Fiji 

If you want to experience one of the best pacific southwest islands, I can recommend Fiji as the people are known to be very welcoming and warm. With the 300 islands in the archipelago you have numerous choices for Pacific island vacation or adventure.

2.) Seychelles Islands 

Found somewhere off the coast of Africa, these 115 islands could be considered paradise. Their granite rocks are things of beauty as you sail across 44 miles of coastlines. An experience that is not like any other, you must at least visit the islands once. Each Island offers its own wonders such as Mahe island’s mountains that soar to about 3,000 feet above sea level.

3.) The British Virgin Islands 

So many to see and experience I cannot say any more than just go there and experience it for yourself. The island is perfect for a family vacation for its clear waters; island hopping experience is but a small part of what these islands can offer.

4.) Thailand 

Sailors have always spoken highly of the country, with the warmest locals and wonderful culture you cannot go wrong in your decision to visit “The Land of Smiles”. Phuket is a wonderful area to visit if you want to see how the locals live, you may even see Exotic flora that’s beauty would make the flowers in your garden pale in comparison. And if you feel like experiencing how nightlife is like, it can easily be found.

5.) Sicily, Italy 

Italy is a great place on its own, but when visiting the country by yacht, I recommend going to Sicily. So much to experience, so much to learn from the ancient history the island contains. Allow yourself to explore the beauty that is Palermo, with its stunning architecture and wonderful culture. If you want something more secluded, you can’t any more secluded than the fishing villages Sicily.

 

In the end wherever you may go, it is a whole other experience going there on a Yacht. As you experience luxury and relaxation with the adventure of sailing and exploring. If you are capable, you must experience what yachting has to offer, and find your own little adventure to go on.

Liposuction operates by inserting a tiny tube referred to as a cannula underneath the epidermis. This kind of liposuction features skin tightening and not as much damage to the surrounding tissue. The price of liposuction also counts on the sort of liposuction surgery which will be conducted in your body. Due to individual factors, including skin elasticity and physique, not everybody will reach the same result from liposuction surgery.

Experts appear to downplay the hazards of liposuction surgery, saying that it’s a generally safe procedure with extremely limited actual casualties.

Liposuction prices shouldn’t be the determining factor in regards to your own liposuction surgery. Ultrasonic liposuction is really not a replacement for traditional liposuction but it’s an addition. Liposuction is an artistic way of surgery.

Don’t confuse liposuction surgery using a weight reduction procedure though. Usually you must wait at least six months to view the full advantages of a prosperous liposuction.
