Shout out to the kids born at the turn of the century. We’re all a bit to young to be ‘90s kids, and yet we experienced a cultural phenomenon all our own.
Shout out to the kids who grew up with the Disney Channel. Not “old Disney”, but with such gems as:
The Suite Life of Zack and Cody
Phineas and Ferb
The Wizards of Waverly Place
Sonny with a Chance
The Suite Life on Deck
And, of course, the Disney Channel original movies:
High School Musical (and both sequels)
Princess Protection Program
And the other blockbuster (rip) movies of the time:
The Princess Diaries
Shout out to the kids who collected silly bands like it was their job. The kids who were cool if the had a slide phone with an unlimited text plan. The kids whose boybands were Big Time Rush and the Jonas Brothers.
Shout out to the kids who wore their bootcut jeans and sequins with pride. we may not be ‘90s kids, but we still have our fair share of cringy nostalgia.
