It's CEREAL TIME here at Still Buffering, and the Smirl sisters are diving headfirst into a bowl of sugary goodness with you to figure out the BEST cereal (or maybe just talk about it through the ages like we always do).

We just skimmed the surface of what it means to be a "VSCO Girl" in our last live episode, and now we're going ALL in. But what we really want to know is: what was a VSCO girl in the 90s?

CW: mental illness, self harm, suicide

This is a serious episode, if any talks of mental illness will be hard to listen to or upsetting for your own mental health, maybe take a break from our show this week. In honor of the recent World Mental Health Day, the sisters are opening up about their own struggles with mental illness, in hopes of continuing this important conversation and maybe helping someone else along the way.

Rileigh used to be a BIG fan of sweepstakes contests growing up like that Danimals one where you could meet Zack and Cody, you know? So the sisters are all reminiscing on those too good to be true contests they never won, and maybe actually did sometimes?

The older sisters realized that life got a lot more convenient for teens in Rileigh's generation with things like food delivery and ride service apps and online clothing website, so we want to figure out if they really make teens' lives easier or if they're maybe making them harder?

As Rileigh begins her second year of college, she's realized that professors in college are a lot different than the teachers she got used to in high school, and Sydnee and Teylor know that transition all too well, so let's talk about our "profs" and "teaches," shall we?

There was a chill in the air this week (even if it only lasted for about 6 hours), and to celebrate all three of the sisters saw a new scary movie based on some old classics, "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark." From jangling men to hug monsters, these stories are from the Sydnee/Teylor era being retold in the Rileigh era, and we want to dissect them ALL.

Our babiest Smirl is about to embark on her sophomore year of college, and the sisters have realized they haven't talked fashion in over three years. So they're taking a dive into the most popular fashions of this 2019 school year to see where these fashion trends came from and if the teens are going even further back in time with their fashion?

Oh, the wonderful world of Pinterest and YouTube DIY videos. This week, we're taking a trip into the rabbit hole that is crafting and DIYing as a teen, and why we all loved it so much. Whittling, anyone?

This week, the sisters made a special crossover episode with Neat! The Boozecast while on Island Time straight from a sports themed bedroom with only three microphones and no mic stands, and boy is it something special.

The sisters have island time on the mind as they're all about to go on their annual family beach trip, so they're taking a look back at all of the hit summer blockbusters of years' past, and more specifically it seems, Jaws?? Like, a LOT of Jaws???

So, Sydnee gets a monthly box full of Nickelodeon merch from all the old, classic cartoons, and we figured that's something we can talk about, right? This is something, right? At least, that's what we asked ourselves as we sat down to record, and we hope you agree with this decision.

It's America's (belated) birthday! To celebrate, we're talking about all of the pretty dumb things we do with fireworks and fire crackers and just fire in general as teens and beyond, come celebrate a little late with us, won't you?

Well, now our babiest Smirl has had the experience of living with roommates for a full year, and she's about to do it all again next year, so does she have any new thoughts to share now that she's an experienced roommate? Does she have anything to keep in mind before next year? How long is too long for towel time? Come find out with us!

We all did it as angsty emotional teens, didn't we? Filled notebooks and notes apps with long, dramatic, heartbreak poems? Or was that just Sydnee and Rileigh?

Okay, we have some serious opinions about commercials of the 90s, but who doesn't? They were all kinda the same, we all still remember ALL of them, and most importantly, we can't figure out what happened to them?

We realized in the entire 3+ years of this show that we had NEVER dedicated an entire episode to the entity that is ~the internet~. So we're going deep to examine all those differences between the world pre and post internet, and why did we all take the same typing courses??

Rileigh's enjoying a beach vacation, so Sydnee and Teylor capitalize on the opportunity to reflect on all the great stuff about being an adult.

Upon a recent trip with Rileigh to the mall, Sydnee made a shocking discovery: teens don't wear tons of jewelry anymore??? What ever happened to the giant earring books and hemp chokers and toe rings?? We must investigate.

We all made them as teens, you know, those homemade movies and videos that are horribly put together and have little to no actual plot but that we LOVED to make? The only difference now is that teens are putting all of them on the internet...which actually is a pretty big difference now that we think about it.
