Is YM still around? I loved having that magazine. I went out of my way every month (from 1997-1999) and bought issues of YM or Seventeen magazine. I didn’t like their fashion articles so much because they were so outrageous for them Philippine setting but I did adore their Trauma-Rama section (you write to them about your deepest darkest secrets), the Astrology section, YM’s numerology, and their teenage quizzes.
Back then, Emode’s presence was not that felt (Emode’s this fantastic website that allows you to take tests about your personality, your IQ, your EQ, etc. Visit them at http://www.emode.com!). My friends and I went gaga over the ‘Is He into You’? type of quizzes in YM. That magazine had the best quizzes ever. They even had an issue where it’s full of psychological quizzes!
What magazines did you read before? Other magazines that I used to read were Glamour (yes, it’s not a teen magazine), and A*Teen (local magazine).
