Things We Should Bring Back From The 90's-2000's

Those were the glory days.

Things We Should Bring Back From The 90's-2000's

The 90's and early 2000's were the best of times and the worst of times, but mostly the best. There are a few things that went out of style (or business) when the world went past about 2008, and this is an official petition to bring them back.

1. Gel Pens

Gel pens were the highlight of many young girls' childhoods. We wrote and colored everything with our precious gel pens. Most of us had a 100 pack of these bad boys, and you better believe if one was missing you wouldn't hear the end of it. Now a days, it's "socially unacceptable" to sign important documents, checks and other things with gel pens because I'm an "adult". I think gel pens should be acceptable to use in all situations.

2. The Lisa Frank Enterprise

Lisa Frank was the popular business for school supplies that had its peak in the 80's, 90's and early 2000's, but lost popularity around 2007. The company centered its products around colorful, bright and kid like stickers and stationary, and was the epitome of my 2005 happiness.

3. Lizzie McGuire

Hilary Duff is now married and has a child, but I'm still stuck on the world of Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo. "The Lizzie McGuire" show was basically your guide to the world of teenagers if you were a kid in the 2000's, and a guide to fashion too (if you liked sparkly belts, matching headbands, scrunchies and layered shirts).

4. Snap Bracelets

These were way too entertaining for how simple they were. Snap bracelets came in tons of cool colors and designs, and they were so much fun to trade with your friends. The only problem that came with snap bracelets was when they wouldn't snap around your wrist and would just make your wrist all red and hurt instead.

5. Wiggly Water Snakes

These toys from your childhood don't really have an official name, so for the purpose of this we will call them wiggly water snakes. There was no real purpose or objective when it came to these toys, but they definitely kept you occupied as a kid. The fancier, more expensive version of these had glitter and little plastic toys inside them. It was the epitome of 2000's cool.

6. Club Libby Lu

Club Libby Lu is a hard concept to explain to explain to people that never lived in this era of makeovers and sparkly nail polish. Basically, Club Libby Lu was a place where all of your friends had their birthday parties, and where you could pretend to be a rock star or a general glamour queen. It was the center of controversy because many parents said that it taught girls to have value in beauty rather than intelligence or character, and just like that Club Libby Lu eventually went out of business.

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.
