From dial-up connections to spooling a cassette tape and more, the struggle was real and hard. Looking back, it's bound to make you nostalgic
Every generation appreciates the simpler times they had when they were kids. Unlike the privileged millennials, people who were born in the 90s know the real struggle of several aspects of life. Yes, we had phones but most of them were fixed onto our walls. From there, we witnessed the evolution of a phone from a keypad mobile phones introduced by Nokia to the slim touchpad androids. Of course, we didn't have Spotify or iTunes, instead, we had cassettes and a stack of CDs for our songs. When it came to movies, renting the classic VHS tapes at the local video store was our concept of Netflix and chill. Looking back, these things do seem difficult and hilarious at times. Taking inspiration from this, we have a bunch of memes that will flood those nostalgic memories back.

Remember in 2006 when you accidentally hit the Internet button on your flip phone and then you had to press end 40 times to keep your parents from paying for such a luxury.— MVPJ (@MVPJunkie) May 17, 2019
I'm sure some people don't ever remember when you had to manually finish shut down. pic.twitter.com/FHKIDULwCh— tee_m 🎛️ Tom Martin (@tunderscorem) November 11, 2014
I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Gopher, Netscape with frames, the first Browser Wars. Searching for pages with AltaVista, pop-up windows self-replicating, trying to uninstall RealPlayer. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.— irwin (@irwin) November 22, 2017
