7 Things That Will Give '90s Babies (And Early 2000s) Nostalgia

Ah, The Feels.

7 Things That Will Give '90s Babies (And Early 2000s) Nostalgia

As I was browsing through my iTunes library, I began to think about how far we've come with technology and how much things have changed. I began to think back to a simpler time in life when the biggest problem I had was whether or not my crush liked me back (rather than having to worry about bills and tuition). I would literally give anything to be able to go back to those times, but since I can't, listed below are seven things that are bound to give us millennials some serious nostalgia.

1. LimeWire

Ah, the feels. Back when the least of your worries was getting arrested for piracy. LimeWire literally had EVERYTHING from all of the latest music to movies, you name it! Yeah, you might have caught a virus or two on your computer but it was all worth it once you had your favorite songs on your iPod or Zune.

2. iPods and Zunes

Need I say more?

3. Sidekicks

While the hype of these phones was pretty short lived, I remember thinking I was the coolest thing since sliced bread once I finally had one of these.

4. Aim

If you weren't up until 3 A.M. or later talking to your friends, did you even do it right?

5. MySpace

Where do I even begin? If you had a MySpace you already know who this guy is since we all had to have him as a friend (Hey Tom!). When I think of MySpace I can't help but think of all of the now cringe-worthy photos I used to think were cute. I lived for getting new friend requests, messages, updating my song, and making sure I had the coolest profile out of all of my friends.

6. Boy Bands

Whether its Panic! At The Disco, Fallout Boy, NSYNC, or The BackStreet Boys; you are guaranteed the feels once you hear their music after all of this time.

7. Scholastic Book Fairs

You were always the cool kid if you came back with items from the book fair, don't debate me on this.

The list of nostalgic items could go on and on, but these are some of the few that I know others will appreciate!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
