Are the things every cool '90s girl did during recess so different than what cool girls do today during those outdoor breaks between class? Maybe some of these recess activities are so cool, they've withstood the test of time and have endured. Some of the others, well, they might seem a bit dated.
But I want to pause a minute and think about how cool the idea of recess is. You don't really get recess when you're a grown up. At least, not in the same way. Maybe there's just something about experiencing unstructured free time that made recess in the '90s, at least for me, a total blast. If someone asked me what I'd do during recess as an adult, I'd probably opt for a nap. But as a kid in the '90s, groove was in the heart and every moment of recess was time to let loose. I have to admit, I loved school, my squad, and all the schemes I'd concoct with my friends, many of which were dreamed up in recess. Don't get me wrong, I also welcomed a break from long division and the history of irrigation in Mesopotamia. But I had some of the best times of my life during recess, when the world seemed to stand still. Here's some of the things I did, how about you?
