Seventeen Things That Turn Ten in 2017

Warning: This list might make you feel old

Seventeen Things That Turn Ten in 2017
Sea Legs Collective

Contrary to popular misconception, 2007 was three ten years ago.

I promise.

I won’t be offended if you feel the need to check a calendar instead of just taking my word for it, because I probably believe it less than you do. It’s amazing how many things that came out ten years ago are still extremely relevant today.

1. Irreplaceable – Beyoncé

You’re lying to yourself if you say that singing along to Bey’s #1 Billboard Top Music hit doesn’t make you feel like the baddest chick in the world. You're also lying if you say that you don’t immediately think of this song as soon as someone says “to the left.”

2. Superbad

It’s been an entire decade since Fogell (played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse) made the name on his fake I.D. McLovin and declared himself old enough to party.

3. Hey There Delilah – Plain White T’s

10 years later and I’m still wondering what Delilah thinks it's like in New York City.

4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

2007 was a big year for Harry Potter fans. We got the Order of the Phoenix movie, The Deathly Hallows book (finally), and the actual Tales of Beedle the Bard that Harry, Ron, and Hermione read in the last book. Any true fan of Harry Potter lost all of their composure as soon as they read the dedication to the final installment of J.K. Rowling’s immensely successful series.

5. Gilmore Girls Series Finale

Thank God this series was rebooted for the “Year in the Life” segment on Netflix this past November because I think all Gilmore Girls fans were in agreement that the series finale in 2007 was not enough. Then again, after the Netflix reboot, we still need more (@ Amy Sherman-Palladino I’m talking to you).

6. Fergalicious – Fergie

If you can sing the entire fast part plus background vocals without getting out of breath, I want to be your best friend. Or just have your insane lung capacity.

7. Teardrops on My Guitar – Taylor Swift

This song definitely ha me singing about the 4th grade boyfriend that I didn’t have. Cheers to 10 years of Taylor Swift hitting me in the feels.

8. Ratatouille

I still think that the premise of this movie (a rat that can cook and is allowed in the kitchen all the time) is gross and unappetizing. Great movie though.

9. Bridge to Terabithia

My heart still shatters into a million pieces every time I watch this, it’s almost as bad as Marley and Me.

10. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

I may not have read this book in 2007, but when I did read it I loved it right away. 10/10 would recommend. And Selena Gomez just turned it into a movie, which I have the highest expectations for.

11. The iPhone

January 9, 2007 Steve Jobs announced the first ever iPhone, and our lives haven’t been quite the same since.

12. Britney Spears’ Meltdown

In the past decade, Britney Spears has gotten her act together. No one will ever forget her 2007 life crisis, but her comeback is really one for the pop culture history books (if those exist).

13. Buy U a Drank – T- pain

Quite possibly the most revolutionary song of our generation, second only to Aly and AJ’s classic “Potential Break Up Song.”

14. Crank That (Soulja Boy) – Soulja Boy


15. Juno

Ridden with nuggets of wisdom, Juno’s sarcastic comments and witty humor made teen pregnancy seem as relatable as any other adolescent adventure.

16. Keeping Up With The Kardashians

We have been #blessed with so many important moments like these over the past decade thanks to the ever entertaining Kardashian family.

17. High School Musical 2

This movie was a cinematic masterpiece. If you try to fight me on this, you’ll lose. It had literally everything necessary to keep you on the edge of your seat for an hour and 51 minutes. Heartbreak and betrayal and basketball all against the backdrop of a country club run by high school best friends in the middle of summer.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

When "Mean Girls" said "In girl world, Halloween is the one time of the year where you can dress up like a total slut and no one can do or say anything about it," they were damn right. Halloween is the perfect excuse to buy that raunchy costume and show your partner that you're that B. Coming from a very single (yes, very single) 20 something-year-old, I have already got my Halloween costume on lock, and now you will too.

Not only are these 10 Halloween costumes dangerously sexy, but you can wear them in the bedroom whenever you want to give your boo a surprise, yes, year-round. Whoever said you can only dress up on Halloween is seriously disturbed.

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

I'm a sucker for a single with a video and that's exactly what we got. Ariana's been pretty quiet during the pandemic, and we all assumed she was working on some new music, and we were right.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
