August 1, 1944: Anne Frank Writes Her Final Diary Entry
On this day in 1944, Jewish victim of the Holocaust, Anne Frank, wrote her final diary entry. In it, she wrote, “[I] keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would like to be, and what I could be, if…there weren’t any other people living in the world.” Her diary, later published under the title, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, detailed the two years that she and her family spent in hiding.
Three days after this entry, Anne and her family were arrested by the Gestapo, the German police. She was eventually placed in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where she was killed by typhus at age 15.

I’M FUCKING SCREAMING OMGGGGGG THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE 90S TO ROMANTICIZED BY NON-90S KIDS FUCK
I feel like a legend.
WHEN PEOPLE WERE HAPPY WITH THEMSELVES.
OH MY GOD MY TIME IN THE SUN HAS FINALLY COME THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER.
Holy fuck. I feel OLD.
WHOA WHOA WHOA.
THIS IS BEAUTIFUL THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
OKay, GURRRL. I was a teen in ALL the 90’s. For real. I was 13 in 93’ allll the way up to 19 in 99’. Lemme tell you a thing:
People caked themselves in makeup. Popularity and sex were HUGE deals. Punks were still punks…and people were still weird about it. Our “popular” kids were called ‘preps’ or ‘preppy’. In my school if you didn’t have addidas it was like a personal crime.
And they drank and smoked but it was all hush hush and had sex like it was their job.
Trust me, I feel your need. Just be you, man. BE YOU.
