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?
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.
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?
