So, I'm having this walk down nostalgia lane all over again because of this new drama called "Answer Me 1997." While this drama revolves around 18-year-olds in Korea and their lives in 1997 (Tamagotchis, Guess t-shirts, and the H.O.T./Sechskiss rivalry), it was a crucial year for me, too.
That was the year I discovered the Backstreet Boys. By Christmas, I could recite all of Brian Littrell's parts on their self-titled album. It was also the year I cemented the ties of my middle school clique. The six of us were inseparable until the last day of 8th grade. It was also the year "Titanic" was released. I sat in a broken chair in a packed theater for over 3 hours. My butt cramp barely let me walk out of the theater.
I bought my first pair of heels in 1997. They were a pair of square loafers with stacked heels from Old Navy. I also rocked my flair Levis so hard that year - I credit them for helping me get my first "boyfriend" whose ability to wear JNCOs and clumsily skate across the school lot made the greatest single impression on me.
Ahhhh, 1997. I didn't know it then, but you were one of the best years of my life.
