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.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
