13 Things That Haven't Changed Since You Were 13

The world is not the same place it was when you were a teenager. If you remember the 90s as an idyllic time, your memory is not distorted – it was scientifically better back then. TV sitcoms featured spunky teens like Clarissa and Urkel, instead of moody, blood-sucking vampires (and if there were vampires, you better believe that Sarah Michelle Gellar was slaying them). There were no wars to protest – the worst thing our President could do was soil Monicas Lewinkys blue dress. There wasn’t an emotional or physical problem that a little Aqua Net or My So Called Life marathon couldn’t fix. You could throw on some body glitter and a baby doll tee and get jiggy with it. Nah nah nah nah nah nah.

If you’re longing for that simpler time, here’s a list of things that are still the same as they were when you were listening to Bush and reading Teen Vogue and frosting your lips. This is the beauty edition, y’all. Smell the CK One already?
