Oh, How I Miss the Good Old Days!

Whether it’s H1N1 or just plain old influenza, it seems that cold season is upon us. Classes are now filled with coughing, sniffling, germ-infested students.

Area K-12 school districts have already felt the symptoms of flu season and have been forced to close school several days in the past week. For most schools, this means that over 25 percent of their student population was absent due to sickness.

In college however, we aren’t privilege to the same benefits as elementary, middle, and high school students. We don’t shutdown or cancel classes often, especially not simply due to illness.

Where Have All the Good Toons Gone?

When I reflect back on my childhood, a pleasant memory that comes to mind is watching Nickelodeon cartoons back in the ‘90s.

In the past week, I’ve been in a nostalgic mood. I’ve been watching YouTube videos of Nickelodeon promos and the commercials. The ones that would run just before “All That” came on. “All That” was the original Saturday Night Live for kids and, I believe one, of the greatest shows of the ’90s, along with “The Amanda Show”, “Rugrats”, “The Angry Beavers” and many more.
