Finish the Sentence Friday: "I thought I Was So Cool When...."

Finish the Sentence Friday


I grew up in the 80's so around that time I thought I was just cool period. Let me give you a few examples of what I used to do:



I used to wear my hair like this. I called it the wave or the rooster!


This was my hair product of choice! I think I contributed to the thinning of the ozone layer too! 


Along with my chicken hair, I thought it was cool to dress like this too!


What was I thinking going to school like this? Hey... I was cool!



Yep... Back then it was cool to drool over these guys. Yes... That is the young Ricky Martin. However, I was crazy over Robby Rosa (light pink shirt next to Ricky). 


Oh... and I can't forget how cool it was to breakdance! Wait a minute... isn't that cool now?!?

  1. As they say on the internets..."Pics or it didn't happen."

    I'm a little disappointed in the lack of photographic support for your allegations. No, I'm a lot disappointed.

    Frick! I never do these "finish the sentence Friday" things but you guys are all over them.

  6. Oh, I loved the picture of the 80's outfit -- my sister would dress like that every day!
    I remember having to curl my bangs and spray the heck out of them -- I have stick straight hair, and it would always fall flat half way through the day.

    1. I know what you mean by stick straight hair. I have that type of hair too. Boy it was soo hard to maintain the chicken hair! I think I went through cans of Aqua Net a week. Thanks soo much for sharing!!

  14. Haha! I think you should share a pic of you with aqua net styled hair from the 80's :) I was born in 1982, so I was a 90's (and 2000) girl in junior high and high school, so I never really got to get too 80's, but I remember the look well. One big thing that my friends and I apparently thought was cool as 90's kids was to wear one scrunchie in your hair and one on your wrist. I saw a bag of scrunchies at the dollar store the other day and it brought back memories. Thanks for sharing this!

  15. We called them Mall-bangs or Revere Hair when I grew up. I once used so much Aquanet in the 80's that some one in the mall food court set fire to my hair because this was when you could smoke in the mall. I was so cool I was on fire!!! :)

  23. Big. Hair. Or weird haircuts if you were into New Wave music, like I was. When I look over the four years worth of pics from high school, I'm not sure how I changed styles that many times without getting whiplash, lol.
