Twenty-five years ago I was in kindergarten, having a great time exploring the woods behind our house. I had a cat and my best friend lived across the street. Life was good!

So Readers, what were you doing 25 years ago?

Road Warriorette received a $25 gift card for doing this contest.


  1. I was a jr in high school, playing in marching band, and making the school yearbook all with -fabulous- 80’s hair!

  2. 25 years ago, I was finishing up my first year in college – boy does that make me feel old!

  3. 25 years ago I would have been two years old living a few blocks away from the ocean. I would have likely been on the beach at the time.

  4. 25 yrs ago I was a senior in high school, going to parties and thought I knew more than my parents. Boy, was I clueless!!! 🙂

  5. I was working at a car leasing company. And I actually still have an Emerald Club California card! I think they had just started Emerald Club, and they must have had special cards made for California.

  6. I was in my first year of work after graduate school – just starting out in my career. Wearing suits with little silk “ties” – oh my! Went on my very first business trip and had to shop at Nordstrom the night before I left in order to get the right clothes. Wow, thanks for bringing back those memories!

  7. Twenty five years ago, I was in college. I had not discovered my love for travel…yet!

  8. 25 years ago, in college. My friends went to Florida for spring break, I headed out to the Colorado Rockies or Canada to go skiing . . .

  9. 25 years ago, I was 9 and this time of year I was too excited to get back on the baseball field to play outside!!!

  10. 25 years ago I was a couple years old traveling with my Mom who was a flight attendant with Frontier.

  11. 25 years ago i was most likely driving the knight rider big wheels and rocking an unfortunate bowl cut.

  12. 25 years ago, I was still the youngest child in my family, though that wouldn’t last for much longer! I don’t remember much about it, as I was not quite two.

  13. 25 years ago I had just graduated college and was spending four weeks traveling across the southwest with no particular destination in mind.

  14. I was 5 years old and my family of 4 were driving across country from Toronto to Edmonton in a tiny little Chevrolet Chevette.

  15. I was barely three months old, but my parents tell me that they packed up our bags and our family went traveling through Europe around that time! That’s probably where my wanderlust started, whether I remember it or not.

  16. 25 years ago I was 2 yrs old, and already watching March Madness basketball, with Indiana topping Syracuse for the title.
