A year in which many things happened. The USSR
ceased to exist. The world wide web
came in to being. Nirvana
released their "Nevermind" album leading to the grunge fashion trends that would follow. Also its the same backwards as it is forwards (i think that's kinda cool) The first gulf war was going on, and the first George Bush was president.
he was born in 1991
1991 and the rest of the 90s provided many technological advances
this word is often misused and has negative connotations. in reality, popular (when referring to a person) is when someone is very well liked and has a lot of genuine friends, most likely because they are a nice/friendly person. However, through the media and highschools around america, "popular" has grown to describe a certain group of people. these people, like punks, nerds, etc. have their own social code, which usually (but not always) includes expensive items/services, sports teams, and cheerleading. These people are not necessarily popular, yes some of them genuinly are well liked and have lots of friends becuase they too (gasp) are nice people. but some of them unfortunately are under the false impression that they are better than everyone else because of their possesions and friends/boyfriends/girlfriends, (who to these people also count as possesions).

Seeing as concord is a wealthy town (don't try to deny it, the average (AVERAGE) house is 800k) There are many children who's parents are vice
presidents of companies such as oracle and bank of america. Many people are very materialistic (i'm not saying that's good or bad, just a fact) And preppiness is prevalent. There is also a fairly large contigent of skaters/punks/"individualists"/druggies (i'm not saying they are the same thing) probably because of the large sect of preps. There are a lot of broken homes, which possibly lead to the drug/alcohol abuse. All in all however, most concord kids (despite how rich their families are) are just like normal average kids you can find everywhere (and yes we have our fair share of complete and total idiots.)
