11 Things You Forgot About From Your Childhood That You Wish You Had Now

There are so many things that I miss from my childhood! But I hardly ever realize how many awesome things we had until I start thinking about it. And you're lying if you say you don't miss at least one of these.

Those cool beads that hung in a doorway

Oh yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Everyone wanted to look as cool as Britney and there is no doubt in my mind...that we didn't. I went through numerous sets of these and each one ended in a tangled mess of beads.

An awesome phone that looked like lips

I wanted one of these so badly, ever since I saw it on Full House. I thought it was the coolest thing ever, you know before cellphones were in every kid's hands.

Inflatable furniture

I'm not sure why, but these were so cool back in the day. And can you imagine how much easier it would be to get your own place if they still were? Like, don't worry mom I can get my own furniture!

The infamous Easy-Bake Oven

These things were the bomb! And sometimes I consider getting one again since maintenance requests seem to keep being ignored.

These totally not creepy ice cream pops.

When I heard the music from the ice cream truck, I know one of these was going to be in my possession very soon. I wish so badly that they sold these things at the grocery store, even if the flavor of the gum balls only last .02 seconds.

The I Spy computer games

When we had a free day in our computer class, you can bet your bottom dollar that I was playing one of these games. But let's be real, my favorite was I Spy Spooky Mansion because that's what all the cool cats were playing.

Bop It

You're lying if you say you didn't have a slight addiction to this game. You likely had a mini heart attack each time you messed up to. But that didn't keep you from trying again.

Milky gel pens

I used to love these things. If you had these things in class you were basically the queen of 4th grade, let's be real.

Water ring games

There's really not much to say about these. Such a simple thing but so amusing.

A super snazzy Lite-Brite

Forget those marquee inspired light boxes that are so popular now! You could do anything with a Lite-Brite!

A amazing View-Master

This was the O.G. virtual reality, people! I remember being so amazed by these. It was like I was actually standing on Main Street in Disneyland.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

NBC

Meet My Cat: Cheshire, The Stray Turned House Cat Who Lives in Michigan

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
