30 ’til 30: 1989

07 Apr

Countdown to my 30th birthday. A new post each day in April to chronicle at least one significant thing from each year I’ve been alive.


  • I turn 6 years old
  • Although I know I saw a My Little Pony and maybe Care Bears movie in the theater, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is the first movie I remember seeing in a theater.
  • Somewhere around in here I started playing the piano
  • I had lots of health problems around this time. I suffered from chronic coughing all night most nights and slept very little for several months.
  • I finish my last year at “Lower Elementary” at the Montessori school

Some historical tidbits from Wikipedia, so who knows if they’re right. Historical Facts:

  • George H.W. Bush becomes President
  • Ted Bundy is executed
  • Exxon Valdez oil spill
  • Tiananmen Square protest
  • Gameboy & Sega Genesis come out
  • Iron Curtain & Berlin Wall fall

Pop Culture:

  • #1 movie at the box office: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  • Oscar for best picture: Driving Miss Daisy
  • Billboard’s #1 song: Look Away–Chicago
  • Grammy Song of the year: Don’t Worry, Be Happy–Bobby McFarren
