20 Songs From The Early 2000s That Will Give You Serious Nostalgia

A great way to remind you of the most awkward years of your life.

It's weird how music can bring back a certain memory. For example, every time I hear "Buy You A Drank" by T-Pain, it reminds me of fifth grade when I used to sing it on the playground with all my friends (and yes, I am still confused as to why I even knew that song at ten years old). So, I decided to look through some old playlists and find the ones that reminded me the most of my awkward years.

Try not to cry.

1. "Fergalicious" - Fergie

Don't even pretend that you weren't a pro at her rap chorus.

2. "Bye Bye Bye" - Nsync

100% chance that you physically waved goodbye every time you sang this song.

3. "Just Lose It" - Eminem

Annnnd pretty much any other Eminem song.

4. "In Da Club" - 50 Cent

Everyone's birthday song.

5. "Yeah!" - Usher

Take that, rewind it back. (Insert name) got the beat to make your booty go *clap*.

6. "Dirty Little Secret" - The All-American Rejects

Like any elementary schooler singing this actually had any dirty little secrets.

7. "Hot In Herre" - Nelly

Still everyone's favorite song to sing when anyone mentions being hot.

8. "Bad Day" - Daniel Powter

The Alvin & The Chipmunks cover kinda ruined it, but nonetheless still makes you fondly remember your awkward years.

9. "Beautiful Soul" - Jesse McCartney

Every girl's first crush. Whatever happened to him anyways?

10. "Gold Digger" - Kanye West

The clean version, of course. The good ol' days before Kanye became a douche :)

11. "Complicated" - Avril Lavigne

If this isn't nostalgic enough on it's own, just know I sang it at my first grade talent show.

12. "Hollaback Girl" - Gwen Stefani

The only reason that every time you spell bananas you have to sing B...A-N-A-N-A-S


Weirdest song ever, but for some reason it was on everyone's Myspace profile.

14. "No Air" - Jordan Sparks & Chris Brown

The awkward song you danced to with your crush in middle school.

15. "Toxic" - Britney Spears

Classic. Still don't really understand all the words, though.

16. "Get Low" - Ying Yang Twins

This song is over 14 years old and can still get any party hype. Bravo.

17. "Drop It Like It's Hot" - Snoop Dogg

Still creepy, just like Snoop.

18. "Crank That (Souljia Boy)" - Souljia Boy

Knowing this dance was like a rite of passage in your pre-teen years.

19. "I Want It That Way" - Backstreet Boys

Never gets old.

20. "Leave" - JoJo

That song every girl sang in the mirror to their non-existent boyfriend.

The funniest part is that one day, our kids will judge us for singing every word to these when their friends are in the car. To this day, I still laugh at my parents for the songs they love that defined their adolescent years. (Sorry Mom!) Hopefully my kids will appreciate my taste in music. ;-)

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.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
