disney brothers

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

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:

  • Hannah Montana
  • 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
  • Camp Rock
  • Cheetah Girls
  • Jump In

And the other blockbuster (rip) movies of the time:

  • Sky High
  • Freaky Friday
  • The Princess Diaries
  • Ratatouille

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.
