13 Things Middle Schoolers Of The Late 2000's Know Too Well

Some things haven't changed.

13 Things Middle Schoolers Of The Late 2000's Know Too Well

Growing up in the 2000s had its ups and downs from iPods to the end of Bennifer. The early years of the decade were great, but so was the end into the 2010s. I attended middle school from September 2009 to June 2012. Although I vaguely remember everything that went on, certain things stuck out the most, including...

1. Soffee Shorts

Most of the girls in my gym class, me included, wore these until they were banned for being “too short” rolled.

2.Silly Bandz

Recess consisted of comparing and exchanging Silly Bandz with friends, even though they’re just oddly bent rubber bands that are so flimsy, they rip after a few hours.

3. UGGs

No matter the weather, UGGs were worn with everything from tights to dresses, shorts to jeans. As cute as they were presumed to be, all they did was make our feet smell worse than sweaty gym socks.

4.Song Lyric Statuses

The Facebook walls of all tweens were covered in Top 40 songs but that’s not all…

5. Tbh

Aside from “Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?” being all over your feed, “truth is” and “to be honest” statuses were everywhere.

6. Call Me Maybe

Eighth grade consisted of having "Call Me Maybe" and Justin Bieber songs stuck in your head. No matter what, they were unforgettable.

7. Abercrombie Hoodies

Besides their denim miniskirts, Abercrombie and Hollister sweatshirts kept everyone warm year round.

8. Visiting the Apple Store to Take Selfies

We all had the latest technology, but preferred to visit the Apple store to take webcam photos with or without geo-filters.

9. Colored Braces

Depending on the season, our braces were colored to match it. If our favorite team was in the playoffs? We represent them with our smile.

10. Juicy Couture

Aside from Abercrombie & Fitch, Juicy Couture tracksuits were popular among us youngsters. They were perfect for going from the classroom to the gym.

11. Converse

When we’re not wearing our Uggs, we put on our Chuck Taylors and were good to go. Low and high tops are completely acceptable.

12. Paramore

Every tween girl goes through a grunge phase. Between wearing black and plaid, Paramore's "Riot" album was in everyone's iTunes library.

13. Bath & Body Works

The sweet smell of Pink Chiffon lingered in the air while our pencil cases were full of Pocketbacs. Some things never changed.
