10 Cringeworthy Middle School Phases Every 2000s Kid Probably Remembers

As much as we try to forget, they still happened.

10 Cringeworthy Middle School Phases Every 2000s Kid Probably Remembers

1. Free Hug t-shirt

Which surprisingly really did result in random strangers hugging you

2. The designated hangout spots

Maybe your grade school hangout spot was in your neighborhood park or a random basketball court. For me and my friends, it was the mall. No matter the place, every weekend you knew you were going to end up there and every single weekend you and your friends would text about whose parent could pick up and drop off.

3. Shutter shades

I will never understand this one. Could you even see out of those glasses?

4. Silly Bandz

For some reason we could never have a healthy relationship with silly bands, we had to have them until it looked like a rainbow threw up on your arms. Where did all the silly bands we used to have go anyway......?

5. Colorful braces

Speaking of rainbow, the only thing that made your monthly trips to the orthodontist enjoyable was what color you were going to change your braces too. What would it be this time? Red and blue? Green and pink? ... Or rainbow?

6. Snapbacks

The first place snapbacks started really popping up was in grade school and it seems as if every guy that wore them all had the same type of hairstyle...

7. Two words... neon and crop tops

In grade school, we were just all about colors and we loved to make that clear by wearing bright neon yellow pink and blue tank tops and crop tops. This was also probably the time you first started wearing jackets to try to get past your parents with the little bit of stomach you had showing.

8. #YOLO!!!

Screaming YOLO, putting YOLO on clothes, making hashtags with YOLO....Why did we do this? "I kind wanna buy this shirt but I don't know." "YOLO!" "Ugh I don't feel like studying." "YOLO"

9. Making a star with your fingers

You're lying if you say you don't have at least one picture doing this with your friends.

10. I Love Boobies bracelets

A great concept and we just took it and abused it. There's a pretty good chance you can probably dig up a couple of pictures from middle school and find that you're wearing one of these bracelets. Why was this a trend?

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
