My youth wasn't a thing I appreciated properly when I had it.
What do I miss about the 80s? My lovely head of hair (though I treated it badly with those atrociously monstrous 80s hairdos). Other than that? Not much else.
I don't miss having nightmares about nuclear bombs detonating. I don't miss the soul crushing abuse from bullies during middle and high schools.
I don't miss the 80s pop music. Because I have access to it on Spotify. Love it a ton.
What I don't miss about the 90s? The hideously terrible hiphop blended pop and the forced marriage of country/pop music as well.
A lot of the so called 80s and 90s comedies (sitcoms and movies)? They aged poorly (or were just atrocious... even during their short cultural life spans).
