But a kid's room is a timecapsule - not just of a time, but of what was going on and how things intersect. As near as I can tell from other pics in the stack, these are from some point between Christmas and Prom of 1993. If the other pics in the pack were taken at the same time, I have reason to think it's Christmas break of 1992.
My folks were incredibly lax about what I did with my room, which was on the second story of our house. It was in the front, had a big window I never opened, and had a vaulted ceiling, which was kind of nuts.
At some point I just started tacking and stapling stuff to my walls, and by the time I graduated, one wall was pretty well covered and the opposite was getting there.
All this was taken down unceremoniously circa 1995 when I'd left for college and my parents had some visitors with a kid who "couldn't sleep in my room". Apparently they found it "scary".
In theory some of the contents were preserved during the re-do of my room, but they didn't survive the purging of my old stuff pending the sale of my folks' house before they moved to Austin.
