5 Things That Will Give You Late 90's/Early 2000s Nostalgia

It’s definitely a bittersweet feeling most often than not, nostalgia that is. Of course there are certain things that trigger memories that aren’t so much cute as they are awkward but that’s another thing. Certain smells or pictures can bring the blast from the past so quick in us it’s a wonder we ever forgot about them in the first place. Here are some of my nostalgic things that remind me of living in LA in the late 90’s and early 2000s.

1. Candy, candy, candy

Baby bottle pop, zebra gum, pop rocks, and more! And the color palettes always scream the era they were made in.

2. Fog machines and strobe lights

An LA party was not complete without these two items along with an upcoming DJ who was probably the cousin or uncle of the family.

3. M U S I C

Blink 182, NSYNC, Avril Lavigne, P!nk, Britney Spears, and oh…sooo many more.

(4.) Just a look at the clothes in the music videos really brings us back too.

5. Makeup and Fragrances

Lip glosses with a cheap smell of cherry but all the package appeal of what trendy girls of that era were. The cool thing was that you could get them at places ranging from the mall to the swap-meets.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
