Today's kids will never understand

14 Signs You Grew Up In The Early-Mid 2000s
The Odyssey Online

Oh the early 2000s, how I miss you. You had some of the greatest and most iconic tv shows, toys, movies and anything else you can think of. Sometimes, I even miss you!

1. You weren't cool if you didn't have one of these

Everybody had a razor phone, and if you didn't you were outcasted and you begged your parents for one. This was probably the equivalent to an iPhone. Everybody just had to have one. Even I wanted one, hence why nobody liked me.

2. You spent more time caring for your tamagotchi than your homework

That was your own virtual pet! You couldn't just let it starve. When it came down to it, it was either fail history or save a life. I remember I nearly got in trouble a few times with mine. I wouldn't want it any differently

3. After you were done caring for your tamagotchi pet, you went on AIM to talk to your bff

You'd talk about your crush with secret code names and your username was something along the lines of 2kool4u or something like that. I forget what mine was.

4. Myspace

Everyones internet addiction before facebook.

5. RIP to everyones neopets

Neopets was something I could never get into, but most of my friends had one and I swear that's all we ever did.

6. Skip-It

If it was a nice day out, you'd grab your skip it and you'd have a skipping competition with all of your friends. I'm pretty sure I was the champ at this!

7. Webkinz

Pretty sure this was neopets competition. This was what I was into. All you had to pay for was the stuffed animal that came with the code. Now you can make an account and get a free pet, but you only get one free pet.

8. Mr. Owl..

"Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?"

9. Club Penguin

The only virtual world website any teacher would let you on.


You saw that TV in your science classroom and you knew that it was about to be lit. Throwback to when the entire class would sing along to the theme song.

11. The Magic School Bus

Even if you didn't get to watch bill nye, you still had the magic school bus. Wasn't as great, but it was the next best thing.

12. You'd watch the Amanda Show after school

The Girls Room, Totally Kyle, let's not forget Penelope Tate. Amandas #1 fan. This was one of my favorite nick TV shows. It only lasted a few short years, but I remember watching re-runs

13. Then After the Amanda Show, you'd watch Drake and Josh

America's favorite boobs.

14. You still want to know why Chase and Zoey never ended up together on Zoey 101

They belonged together! They couldn't live without each other! Though Dan Schneider did release a clip of what was in the time capsule 10 years after the time capsule aired. You can watch the clip here:

but we still don't know if they lived happily ever after or not.

So if you recognize any one of these 14 things then you are definitely grew up in the early-middle 2000s.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
