11 Things We Need To Bring Back From The '90s

What better than bringing back a small taste of our childhood?

11 Things We Need To Bring Back From The '90s

With "Fuller House" making its long awaited debut this past week, I think it got all of us millennials in our feels about our childhood. I know it brought me back to my childhood and had me reminiscing on all things '90s. Here a few things that I miss even more now, and I'm sure you might feel the same way.

1. Dunkaroos

These snacks were one of the best things of my entire childhood. The snack every child wanted in their lunch box. The icing was also the best part, am I right?

2. Hit Clips

The o.g. iPod, my friends. These things might have only played about 30 seconds of your favorite songs, but we carried them everywhere.

3. Tamagotchis

Before we were allowed to have pets, we had Tamagotchis. Our own little pocket pets, that always ended up dying.

4. Gel Pens

These pens made school and homework actually fun. I mean who didn't have a couple of these in their backpack?

5. All Things Lisa Frank

Lisa made the best coloring books, stickers, folders and backpacks. Every girl had to have them and was probably decked out in straight Lisa Frank at school.

6. AOL Instant Messenger

When we were in elementary school, we weren't allowed to have cell phones. So every day, when you got home from school you sat down at the computer and stayed on talking to your friends for hours. This was the o.g. Snapchat.

7. Myspace

I don't know about y'all, but I miss the days of being an HTML code pro, embedding music, changing my background and picking my top friends. I like Facebook, don't get me wrong, but Myspace was the real deal.

8. Furbies

While these things were quite possibly the most annoying things on the Earth, they were cute, and since we couldn't have our own pets these had to do.

9. Bop Its

These contraptions could capture your attention for hours or cause the biggest sibling fights in your household, but boy were they entertaining.

10. Lip Smackers

Every girl loved to collect them and loved to wear them. What happened to the days of an abundance of flavored ChapSticks?

11. Wonder Balls

Every time you went to the grocery store, you had to grab one. These were the perfect mid-day or after school snack. A mixture of chocolate and sourness -- how could you go wrong?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
