6 Memories From 2013, Because Life Was Easier Then

Ahh... to be in middle school.

6 Memories From 2013, Because Life Was Easier Then

3..2..1.. Happy New Year! Welcome to 2013.

I think we could all use a break from 2020, so let's take a look back at a simpler time.



Vine was pretty much the modern day TikTok, only with shorter videos and a focus on comedy. If you don't know what the man is saying in the above gif, did you even have vine?


"Thrift Shop"


According to the Billboard Hot 100, the top song of 2013 was "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Honestly, this song is still a bop.

If you really wanna get into the feel of 2013, Spotify has a playlist of all the top hits.

If you don't recall, The Harlem Shake was a trend where people would dress in costume, and dance to "Harlem Shake" by Baauer. As a middle schooler during this time, I unfortunately have plenty of embarrassing videos of me participating in this meme.

Miley Cyrus's VMAs Performance


Miley Cyrus made pop culture history by twerking on stage during her VMAs performance with Robin Thicke.

Does it say "Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!"? "Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!"? "Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!"?

We may never know.



Remember when everyone was obsessed with selfies? 2013 was the year "selfie" was added to the dictionary; How wonderful.

In high school, I felt like I didn’t need to study to get good grades. But in reality, I tried so hard in high school. I never skipped class, I never took a zero on an assignment and I paid attention in class. So yeah, when it came test time, I barely needed to study.

This is why college is a slap in the face to a large amount of straight A-high-school students. In high school a person has complete structure and responsibility. Yes, college students have this too, but it is more lenient.
