Recently, our country has been facing immense amounts of anger, violence, and hatred. It seems to be this dark cloud looming over our nation, sticking fear and sadness into the lives of many of our own citizens. How did we allow this to happen? Growing up, most of us are taught to share what we have, to speak kindly to one another, and to embrace what makes us each different. In the face of such a stressful time in our country, here are just a handful of quotes from our childhoods to remind those who are misguided what the bases of humanity and society are, to center those who are in fits of hatred, to give hope to those who are feeling downtrodden, and to make the world smile again.

I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

5454
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
