We all used to cringe when our parents would speak of the “good ol’ days” or when our grandparents would start a sentence with “I remember when”. Yet here we are, two decades since the ‘90s and I think we can all fondly hear the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song ringing somewhere in the back of our heads.
The ‘90s were a great decade, so you can’t blame us for missing it. It ushered in a new era of media from cable television to the World Wide Web, it brought us grunge and hip-hop music and Leonardo DiCaprio. So it’s understandable that this particular decade would hold a special place in our hearts. And to celebrate our love for the ‘90s we decided to use it as a theme to Spice (Girls) up our desks.
Friends is arguably one of the most iconic sitcoms. Ever. And we all have a Monica in our group (and if you can’t think of who it is, it’s probably you), the hyper-organized, competitive and ambitious friend. But perhaps we could all use being a bit more like Monica… At least in the office.
