20 Signz You Grew Up In The 2000z, From Webkinz To Silly Bandz
Bridget Sjoberg

Picture this: It’s 2007. You slip on your gaucho pants and Abercrombie shirt as you get ready to take your Razor scooter over to your neighbor’s house. Together you watch "That’s So Suite Life of Hannah Montana," the year’s most anticipated event. Everything in life was good.

Childhood in the 2000s was marked by very distinctive trends, and most of them were fun (but quite cringe-worthy and the letter Z was overuzed a lot).

If these 20 trends relate to you, growing up in the 2000s was your time!

1. Webkinz

Before there was social media, internet time was spent taking your online animals to Dr. Quack and the Curio Shop.

2. Club Penguin

After your round of Webkinz, you’d meet your friends on a Club Penguin server to play the sledding game and decorate your igloos.

3. Fashion Phase 1

All the coolest girls in school bought their graphic tees and platform sandals from Limited Too, pairing the look with some earrings from Claire’s.

4. Fashion Phase 2

Once you were too old for Limited Too, everything you owned came from Abercrombie or Hollister, unless it was a matching Juicy Couture sweatsuit.

5. Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair was the best and most anticipated week of school, where kids could spend the $6.25 they brought to load up on Smencils and clicky pens.

6. Shoes

You were definitely cool if you rocked Crocs, Ugg Boots, or Toms.

7. TV Shows

"Hannah Montana," "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody," "That’s So Raven," "Lizzie McGuire," "Wizards of Waverly Place," "Zoey 101," "iCarly," and "Drake and Josh." That’s all I need to say.

8. Movies

The songs from "High School Musical," "Camp Rock," and "The Cheetah Girls" will forever be your anthems.

9. iPods

You used this to play music from your iPod or MP3 player.

10. Silly Bandz

The more of these you had stacked up on your wrist, the cooler you were.

11. Disposable Cameras

You took a Kodak disposable camera on field trips and vacations, and then you went to Target to get the pictures developed.

12. Nintendo DS

You spent hours training your Nintendogs for agility competitions and talking with your friends on Pictochat.

13. Wii

You killed the game at Wii Sports and Mario Kart and spent hours making Miis.

14. iTouch

Before every kid got an iPhone, you played "Doodle Jump" and "Cut the Rope" on your iPod touch.

15. Flip Phones

This was definitely your first phone.

16. Lockers

Your middle school locker really was this extra.

17. Feathers

You probably had one of these in your hair for at least one summer.

18. Colored Braces

Kids with multiple colored bands in their braces were the coolest.

19. Lunches

Your packed lunch for school definitely contained Lunchables, Gushers, and Fruit Rollups.

20. The Pacer

You spent every school year dreading this exact moment in P.E. class.

"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.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
