Remembering Our Favorite Childhood TV Shows

Nostalgia at its finest.

Remembering Our Favorite Childhood TV Shows
Huffington Post

Most of us 18-20-somethings can agree that the television shows we grew up with and still love today are the greatest shows ever. Kids these days just don't get the quality entertainment that we did back in the 90s and early 2000s. Even if you didn't have major networks like Cartoon Network and Disney Channel growing up, you probably still heard about some of these shows.

1. Ed, Edd n Eddy

This show was about 3 kids who lived in the same cul-de-sac with the same name who spent much of their time coming up with crazy ideas to get money for jawbreakers. Most of the ideas were failures, but the shenanigans they got into with other supporting characters of the show were very entertaining to watch.

2. The Powerpuff Girls

Sugar, spice, and everything nice. This show is about 3 young super-powered crime fighters who were in bed by a reasonable hour for school the next day. Their "father" (who they call Professor) created them in a lab, accidentally adding "Chemical X", giving them their powers. The show originally ran from 1998-2005, but had a reboot in 2016 which many of the original fans do not like. There have been other run off series for PPG, including an anime that many people may not have heard of called Powerpuff Girls Z.

3. Captain Planet and the Planeteers

Captain Planet is a fantastic show about saving the environment. The theme song itself was enough to get you excited about the show, but also had many lessons in the show, as well as ways to get involved with keeping the environment clean. The "bad guys" of the show were people who would harm the environment in some way. The Planeteers would stop the polluter by combining their powers (contained in rings they wore) and summoning Captain Planet himself. At the end of each show, an animation of Captain Planet would show telling the viewers how they could help keep the planet clean. While the show may no longer be in production, it has a sister website that is up to date, and you can visit it here

4. Rugrats

This charming show is about 4 babies (and later another baby) and an older (but still young) cousin as they go through life trying to understand the world around them. Many of their misadventures of life are quite bizarre, but they still have a lot of fun.

5. SpongeBob SquarePants

While many of the shows that we loved from the 90s and early 2000s aren't in production any longer, SpongeBob SquarePants has been one of the longest running children's television shows, first airing in 1999. Over the years, SpongeBob's design has changed somewhat noticeably, but he is still the same old fry cook at The Krusty Krab. The show follows SpongeBob on his many adventures with his friends Patrick Star, Sandy the Squirrel, Squidward, and others. SpongeBob believes they are friends, but Squidward definitely thinks the opposite. SpongeBob SquarePants was popular enough to have a couple movies, with another set to be released in 2019.

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.
