Lime Green Crocs And 14 Other Early 2000s Fashion Trends That Need To Come Back ASAP

Seven-year-old me wearing lime green crocs: "It's called fashion."

The early 2000s was easily a golden era of fashion, at least that's what pre-teen me thought at the time. Looking back at it... not so much. But hey, at least us late-'90s babies weren't "rocking" clothing plastered with emojis and acronyms like "LOL" and "YOLO." Remember the daring looks of Brittany Spears and Justin Timberlake when they pulled off all denim, matching outfits? Or the Disney Channel/fashion icon, Ashley Tisdale and all her infamous red carpet looks? Truly legendary.

Thanks to stores like Urban Outfitters, SOME of these treasured trends are making a miraculous comeback. You can even find them on Amazon! Though we did have some interesting trends, you're lying to yourself if you haven't wished you could flaunt around in a fresh new pair of gauchos again.

1. Low rise jeans paired with chunky belts

Well, you needed something to keep your jeans from falling even lower, so why not a statement belt?

Buy it on Amazon.

2. Layered tank tops

Because why not wear 3 tank tops on top of each other?

Buy them on Amazon.

3. Gauchos

God bless the creator of these magical pants.

Buy them on Amazon.

4. Crocs

Well, duh.

Buy them on Amazon.

5. Livestrong Bracelets

You couldn't catch a single elementary student without at least one of these bad boys on their wrists.

Buy it on Amazon.

6. Headbands with scarf tails

I think I had eight of these at one point in my life. That was clearly my peak.

Buy them on Amazon.

7. Kanye Glasses

Probably the most impractical trend, but that did not make anyone immune to these barred-shades.

Buy them on Amazon.

8. Stylish barrettes

Yes, I do need 12 barrettes for only one piece of hair.

Buy it on Amazon.

9. Jelly sandals

I saw a pair of these in Forever 21 last week and nearly died.

Buy them on Amazon.

10. Silly bands

"I'll give you two dog silly bands for one of your horse silly bands."

Buy them on Amazon.

11. Colorful tracksuits

Remember in "Mean Girls" when the only thing Regina could fit into was her pink tracksuit? I felt that.

Buy it on Amazon.

12. Plaid shorts

I looked like a damn picnic table most of my childhood.

Buy them on Amazon.

13. Skinny sequined scarves

Definitely did not keep you warm, but at least they kept you fashionable.

Buy it on Amazon.

14. Initialed bags

If you didn't have at least 6 bags with your first initial on it, then what were you doing?

Buy it on Amazon.

15. Lip Smackers lip balm

And what better to fill your initialed bag with other than soda-flavored lipgloss?

Buy it on Amazon.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
