13 Pop Culture Characters Every 2000s Middle School Girl Was Obsessed With, And Still Is

Their lives may be supernatural or extravagant, but they are just like you.

13 Pop Culture Characters Every 2000s Middle School Girl Was Obsessed With, And Still Is

1. Bridget Jones from Bridget Jones' Diary

Everything that could go wrong does. But, she survives happily and so will you.

2. Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl

Doomed by the universally despised Gossip Girl, Chuck gradually throws away his “bad guy” persona for love, not to say his life was a walk down Easy Street.

3. Randall Pearson from This Is Us

Though chosen through adoption and loved by his parents, Randall’s life has always been a struggle to fit in. He may be a tad compulsive and might not sleep well at night, but Randall loves and forgives freely and graciously.

4. Mia Thermopolis from Princess Diaries

You might not be destined to become Genovia’s future Queen, but I am sure you have experienced either love problems, attention issues, or the occasional run-in with a powerful grandma.

5. Jughead Jones from Riverdale

As the son of the town’s outcast, Jughead’s journey to acceptance has been nothing but easy. His life is not as comical as it appears.

6. Damon Salvatore from Vampire Diaries

Stuck in the middle of a love triangle with his brother and his true love (for the second time), Damon is a want-to-be-evil vampire character foil to Stephan. However, Damon is not as bad as he lets on.

7. Topanga Lawrence from Boy Meets World

Not even in the face of love will Topanga abandon her feminist views. Topanga definitely wears the pants in all of her relationships.

8. Phoebe Buffay from Friends

Misunderstood, but accepted.

9. Alex Karev from Grey's Anatomy

Alex began the series as everyone’s least favorite intern, but now you swoon over his loyalty and compassion.

10. Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother

Barney’s womanizing life began after he was dumped by the woman he loved. He reinvents himself into a businessman and becomes wealthy beyond comfortable. He is a fighter though, and we love him for it.

11. Penny from The Big Bang Theory

An unsuccessful acting career leads Penny to work as a waitress. She falls in love with one of the dorkiest guys in her apartment. She is not the brightest, but she is just trying to fit in.

12. Michael Scott from The Office

He is bland, sarcastic, and occasionally takes things a bit too far. He looks out for his friends and does not try to hide the social awkwardness.

13. Ron Weasley from Harry Potter

Ron is the character with the least but is willing to give the most. His heart is huge, but his bank account is essentially nonexistent. He loves his friends, though his life hasn’t been easy.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong."

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start.

You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
