You probably asked for some of these. Do you still have them?

20 Gifts Found On My 2000's Christmas List
Gazette Review

With Christmas comes nostaliga, and I can't help but remember what I used to ask Santa for. So here is my list of 20 things that were definitely on your list as a 00's kid.

Maybe you can relate:

1. Tamagotchi

These handheld pets were every middle schoolers obsession, during lunch you could make your Tamagotchi "mate" with your friend's to have a baby!

2. Polly Pocket

A play date without Polly Pocket? Unheard of. Bonus points if you scored this stretch-limo underneath your Christmas Tree - equipped with a Jacuzzi in the back and outfits for Polly to wear on her night out on the town.

3. Webkinz

These plush little toys were equipped with access codes which allowed kids access to an online world filled with arcade games, home-design, and pampering your pet. During the 2000's the more Webkinz you had, the better.

4. HitClip

Before iPods were around and every young kid had cell phones, HitClips were the way to listen to the greatest hits of the time like NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears.

5. Dream Life Console

A more PG-Version of the Sims, Dream Life was a console you could hook up to your television in order to control the "Dream Life" of you have always wanted: go to school, hangout with your friends, and change your hair whenever you want - your destiny is in the controller!

6. Rock Band

In my humble opinion, you were either a die hard Rock Band fan or you jammed out on its competitor... Guitar Hero.

7. Guitar Hero

Guitar Hero was my JAM in middle school, if you could figure out how to use the orange guitar key you were a legend. The best part about Guitar Hero was how you could customize your guitar and character the better you got; rocking out in my living room was not too bad either.

8. Easy-Bake Oven

Using this handy-dandy Easy-Bake Oven, I made some pretty questionable baked goods like cookies, cakes, and brownies. Powered by a light bulb, this toy made every kid during the 00's feel like they were "grown up" because they could make their own treats.

9. Game Boy Advance

My Game Boy Advance was my first real experience with video games. My go to games were Donkey Kong and Mario Brothers - absolute classics.

10. Nintendo DS (Lite Coral Edition)

The day I got my pink Nintendo DS I cried - that meant I could spend hours playing Cooking Mama and Nintendogs meanwhile sporting my favorite color (PINK).

11. Furby

No clue why these creepy guys were an obsession for our generation, but for some reason we all had them.

12. Razor Scooter

You want to meet at the bus stop with your neighborhood pals? Hopefully you'll find this whip under your Christmas tree.

13. Heelys or DC's

Or, even better...

14. Happy Feet

There was no shoe comfier than Happy Feet, and every school had that one kid that wore them as real shoes when they were better off leaving those stinky things at home.

15. Pixel Chix

A more sophisticated spin-off of the Tamagotchi, Pixel Chix were digitized characters who lived inside these handheld homes. Kids could dictate what their Pixel Chix did throughout the day such as food, fashion, and socializing. If your friend has a Pixel Chix you could stack the houses to let your Pixel Chix "have a party".

16. Littlest Pet Shop Playhouse

Littlest Pet Shop was what everyone collected in middle school, you would collect hundreds of these tiny little bobble head animals and could put them in all sorts of playsets due to the massive amounts of variety the company produced. The online website to play with your pets came out way after I left middle school.

17. Robot Dog

This little guy was on everyone's Christmas list in the 2000's, he could bark, walk around, AND teach him tricks it was like having your own dog without having to beg your parents to let you bring a furry friend home.

18. The Sims

Unwrapping The Sims you knew that you were about to have no life for the next few weeks, no game was more entertaining than this virtual reality game played either on Nintendo, computer, or console.

19. Lite Brite

The Lite Brite was a classic when I was a kid, you could create glowing designs with the hope that the little plastic pieces would stay in place so you could show off your masterpiece.

20. Barbie Airplane

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F07%2F636167306117271035-1192006382_71HSFY8W31L.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=521&h=bda6cb9eeeabaef5a0a18e167bfc482e5ce55298527b9662590322f339c590d3&size=980x&c=15498531 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F07%252F636167306117271035-1192006382_71HSFY8W31L.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D521%26h%3Dbda6cb9eeeabaef5a0a18e167bfc482e5ce55298527b9662590322f339c590d3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D15498531%22%7D" expand=1]

One of the best Christmas gifts I ever received, the Barbie Airplane came equipped with reclining chairs, the stewardess' cart, and a telecom.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
