What 11 Of Your Favorite TV Characters Would Be Like As Millennials In 2018

Whether going on shopping sprees with Angelica Pickles or partying in the VIP sections of every club with Barney Stinson, any of these hangouts are going to be legen... wait for it ...dary

The CW

Watching television we've all sat and wondered what it would be like if we could go into the lives of our favorite television characters.

What would it be like to hang with A.C. Slater and his friends on "Saved By The Bell?" What kind of adventures would we go on with Tommy Pickles? How many devious ways could we come up with to prank Drake and Josh?

But, have you ever wondered what it would be like if your favorite characters could be in your life today in 2018?

These are just some of the characters, based on their personalities, that you know any hangout with them would be absolutely amazing.

1. Barney Stinson from "How I Met Your Mother"

If the over-the-top Barney Stinson were here in 2018, you better believe you'll be in for a good time. He would be infatuated with judging our fashion sense. Of course, Barney Stinson is known for his stylish suits and keeping everything in check at all times. He'll more than likely want everyone in 2018 to "suit up." Then, he'll check out the VIP sections of our clubs. Barney is the party type so he'll dance to our music all night long. Later, he'll check out our arcades for the laser tag. It would definitely be a night to remember with Barney Stinson.

2. Angelica Pickles from "The Rugrats: All Grown Up"

We all know Angelica Pickles was a brat as a child. In "All Grown Up," nothing really changed, but she definitely developed into quite the fashion and music lover. If she were in 2018, she'd be in heaven in stores like Forever 21 and H&M. Of course, she'd also love checking out guys at the mall. Then, her absolute favorite thing would be our karaoke bars. She'd be the type to pick the flashiest song so she could really perform -- no matter how utterly bad she really was.

3. Drake Parker from "Drake and Josh"

This guy was a mischevious, thrill-seeking, lady's man who was also extremely lazy. A hangout with him could go a little something like this. We'd start off by sleeping in. If there is something Drake hated, it was waking up early to do anything. Then, he'll definitely want to gather up as much junk food as possible and go through every video game. After, he'll want to jam out with his guitar. He'll probably go somewhere like the beach or another popular hangout spot to jam out so the ladies could watch him. Or he'll want to check out indoor skydiving.

4. Josh Nichols from "Drake and Josh"

Three words perfectly capture Josh: Oprah, science and quirky. He would absolutely love spending a day at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) here in Tampa, Florida. Then, he, like Drake, would love to play all of our video games. Then, of course, he would ask about his favorite talk show, "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Now, we may have to console him once he realizes that the show has ended, but he'll probably be very happy to hear about the other dozens of things Oprah has done since.

5. Lorelai Gilmore from "Gilmore Girls"

A night in with Lorelai Gilmore would be the best girls night you could ever imagine. First, we would buy A LOT of coffee from probably every coffee house we see. Then, we would buy a ton of snack foods. I am talking cookies, cakes, chips, pastries — whatever you could think of. She'd probably want to order in takeout as well. Then, she would fall in love with Netflix and Hulu. Again, this would be the ultimate girls night in.

6. Eliza Thornberry from "The Wild Thornberries"

We all remember the Thornberries as the animal-loving, adventurers. Well, all except Eliza's sister, Debbie. If Eliza Thornberry were here in 2018, she would definitely want to hike and see as many animals as possible. She'd probably love the "Big Cat Rescue." She'd love a chance to swim with manatees or dolphins. Maybe you could take her horseback riding. Whatever gives her the most freedom to be with the animals, she'll be down for.

7. Phoebe Buffay from "Friends"

Being as quirky and random as Phoebe Buffay is, she'd be up to trying anything. She would be amazed at how hoverboards work and would love to try one. She would really love going to Dave & Buster's to try all the arcade games. Of course, she has to go to any open mic nights going on or any karaoke bars.

8. Kitty Forman from "That '70s Show"

Taking Kitty Forman out in 2018 would be great. She would love to go to World of Beer to try all their custom beers. Or you could take her out bar hopping in SoHo in Tampa. Take her to the Hard Rock Casino for a good time of hitting the slots, drinking, eating and enjoying the bands they have. Since she is also an avid cooker, she would love to take cooking classes. Of course, she'd probably add alcohol to all of her dishes.

9. Alice Jay Proud A.K.A Suga Mama from "The Proud Family"

Alice Jay Proud, better known as Suga Mama, was definitely the feistiest grandmother you could ever know. She would be down to go out dancing at our most popular clubs. She would probably love to go to the best bingo halls or even out gambling.

10. Lucy Ricardo from "I Love Lucy"

Being able to hang out with Lucy Ricardo would be amazing. The lovable, but mischievous, redhead would be amazed by everything in 2018. From the music to the food, she would want to try it all. First, she would have to go to the theater. Seeing live performances would be the best way to spend her time. Of course, she would want to be a part of the performances herself. Then, she would want to eat at a nice restaurant. Maybe take her to a Japanese restaurant where the cook puts on a show right at the table.

11. Gibby Gibson from "iCarly"

Last, but definitely not least, is the adorable Gibby Gibson. We all know him for the chubby kid infatuated with Carly, food and taking his shirt off. Being the foodie that he is, he would love to go out to some popular restaurants. One place to definitely take him would be to any food truck shows happening. He would be in love with how many choices he has. He would also love to go out dancing. But, of course, you have to make sure to tell him to keep his shirt on!

24 Beauty And Style Brands Donating To The Fight To End Police Brutality Against Black People

From small, boutique brands to legacy fashion brands.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
