9 Terrible Things You Probably Did In 2014

Those were some dark times.

9 Terrible Things You Probably Did In 2014

We all remember 2014, right? Everyone was into boy bands and had a sad aesthetic and self-diagnosed themselves with mental illnesses and we were all in just the absolute worst times of our lives.

Ah, those were the days.

Anyway, as most people know, the human brain has a strange way of locking up horribly traumatic events into a "vault" in your brain. It covers things up and stows away memories that could be too damaging to you. So, I've decided to delve into my trauma bank and bring to you some of the things you may have forgotten. The things we all did in 2014.

1. You had or wanted THE hair.


Don't even act like you don't know what I'm talking about. All the scene/emo girls wanted that pink and platinum blonde fringe hair. The hair that was big and poofy on top, then thin and layered at the ends, and hung in your face so no one could see how sad you were!

2. Eating was a personality trait.


Remember being quirky because you like something that literally keeps you alive? Yeah, the whole "I like pie!" "Tacos!' phase was… an interesting one.

3. You idolized the color black.


Pink is for preps and I am but a loner emo girl who can't be like other girls. My wardrobe? Black. My soul? Black. My favorite color? Black. Or maybe a nice, dark midnight blue.

4. You used (awful) emoticons.


Why would you use an emoji or even a simple "lol", when you could show your true emotions through the famous "XD"? And of course, who could forget the family of cringe emoticons, such as cx, c:, xD, DX, and the ever famous uwu and owo

5. Your last name on Facebook was never your last name.


Throughout your hundreds of Facebook friends, there were probably a good many "Alice Cx", "Alex XD", and "Annie Horan"'s on your friends list. Why would I want my friends and family to notice that it's me posting or messaging when they could see my love of One Direction every time I'm online.

6. You had a boy band obsession.


Remember when people had hoodies that said "Mrs. Harry Styles" or wore 5SOS bracelets all the way up to their elbows? The tears we shed over men who never knew we existed? Remember RP'ing on Chatzy or Omegle and pretending to be members of a band? Dark times.

7. You were addicted to Wattpad.


Just the name sends shivers down your spine. Interacting with some other person your age and begging them to "PLZ UPDATE" because you NEED a new chapter of that Andy Sixx X (Y/N) fanfiction so you can read it on your iPad before bed!

8. Your typing was either metaphorically the worst or literally the worst.


There was little to no in between, you either typed like dis :3 or refused to make any grammatical mistakes, lest anyone think of you as anything less than an intellectual.

9. You spent way too much time on Omegle


One of the most dangerous websites I'd ever seen in my life! We, as MINORS, would just video chat and text with random people on the internet. We'd wade through all the videos of boys doing their business on live video in hopes to find some Facebook famous idol or some well-known blogger from Tumblr or hopefully, some band member.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
