30 Songs From The 2000s That Make You ReMeMbeR YouR AOL Screen Name

It seems us 90's babies cannot ever find the right words to perfectly describe our childhood. From Neopets to Tamagotchi's, Shutes and Ladders to The Amanda Show. Life was totally different back then, and the music was totally different too.

It's time to turn up those jams and get in touch with our 2000's side. Here are 30 songs that will that with make you remember your AOL screen name.

"Since You Been Gone," Kelly Clarkson

Ahh, Kelly Clarkson. She always seemed to understand us. This song will forever be our anthem when we want to get in touch with our powerful, independent side.

"Toxic," Britney Spears

What a bop.

"Hot N Cold," Katy Perry

Another hit reminding us men suck... even for the ladies living it up in Hollywood.

"Empire State Of Mind," Jay Z

"Ridin' Solo," Jason Derulo

Who else remembers ridin' solo to horribly themed middle school dances, or was that just me?

"Breakaway," Kelly Clarkson

I am starting to think these are all just single empowerment songs.

"Year 3000," The Jonas Brother

Joe, Nick, and Kevin DEFINED the late 2000s and although none of us will live to the year 3000, it's safe to assume they'll be living under water.

"A Thousand Miles," Vanessa Carlton.

Had to throw a love song in there eventually, this song will give you all the feels and yes, flashes of your first love will come to mind.

"Lip Gloss," Lil Mama

"One Time," Justin Bieber

Yeah, that's right. This song came out in the 2000s. Shocking, right?

"O.M.G," Usher

"You Are The Music In Me," High School Musical 2

HSM 2 was the best musical of our generation. Facts.

“Complicated," Avril Lavigne

Avril just got us, man.

“Hollaback Girl," Gwen Stefani

The sole reason we can all spell bananas correctly.

“Mr. Brightside," The Killers

Need I say more?

“Leave (Get Out)," JoJo

What ever happened to Jojo anyway?

“Stacy’s Mom," Fountains of Wayne

So inappropriate, but so so catchy.

“I Gotta Feeling," Black Eyed Peas

The only song to be played at weddings in 2009. On repeat. I'm serious.

“She Will Be Loved," Maroon 5

If you weren't already in love with Adam Levine before this song, I am sure you will be after.

“Gold Digger," Kanye West

We can all thank Kanye for reminding us of the importance of a prenup.

"Bleeding Love," Leona Lewis.

This song was pure magic.

“Unwritten," Natasha Bedingfield

"Tim McGraw," Taylor Swift

The true beginning of it all for 17-year-old Swift.

"Everytime We Touch," Cascada

A tried and true for all the club goers.

"Too Little Too Late," Jojo

Another one from Jojo. It was a good year for her, between the release of this hit and the release of Aquamarine.

"Dirty Little Secret," All-American Rejects

“U Got It Bad," Usher

Yeah, yeah I do. I got it bad for this song, for sure.

“Just The Way You Are," Bruno Mars

2010? Does that count? I had to include it cause nothing says angsty 90's baby quite like drawing a portrait of your lover with a cassette tape.

“Bad Day," Daniel Powter

This song played at the end of every American Idol episode in 2007 and that was reason enough to include it on the list.

“Hey There Delilah," Plain White T’s

Don't @ me, but there was no better song to finish with. Poor Delilah, just trying to move on with her life and this man is clinging to their relationship like I am clinging to my childhood.

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.

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.

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:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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.
