11 Early 2000s Trends That Deserved Their Deaths

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Well, if we're talking about the early 200s, and we're talking about fashion, it was undeniably the worst of times. Some of the darkest days in fashion--here are 11 of the worst trends.

1. Shiny pants

Especially shiny cargo pants. I have PTSD.

2. Sweatbands

I get it when it comes to working out, but whoever decided this would be a good day-to-day look?

3. Neckties as belts

The cringe. Why did we think we were being edgy?

4. Anything a member of *NSYNC has ever done with their hair

From the infamous frosted tips to the streaky highlights, there were no good decisions here.

5. Anything Avril Lavigne has ever worn

This needs no explanation.

6. Army pants (and flip flops)

The only reason you would catch me in these is because Cady Heron did it first.

7. Frosted lip gloss

The worst part was your face-framing layers getting stuck in the gloss.

8. Layering clothes unnecessarily

Tank tops, off-the-shoulder shirts...why did we crush our bodies with all of these weird combos?

9. Lace-up jeans

Throw lace-up jeans in with bedazzled pockets for all the terrible things that happened to denim.

10. Livestrong bracelets

People would wear these to prom. What was their appeal?

11. Popcorn shirts

I have almost visceral reactions to the texture of these. Nobody is looking at a popcorn shirt with fondness.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
