Let’s be honest, being a 00s kid was honestly the best thing ever! Anyone who says different is probably gonna have to answer to me! Anyway, I loved growing up in the 00s, mainly because there were so many good things about the 00s, but there were also some epic fails too – some of which I am definitely guilty of (sorry 00s) and I would show pictures but I’m not even joking when I say they’re pretty embarrassing. So what were some of the best bits about growing up in the 00s and have I learned from the fails?
1. Flip Phones
I lived for my Motorola Razr and when they released the gold shade and my friend had it, I was all over that!
2. Mean Girls
That film is the holy grail and one of the best things to ever happen in the 21st century. Not that I’m being over dramatic or anything. It still is and always will be one of the best films ever, the quotes and everything. You go Glen Coco.
Towards the end of the 00s I was obsessed with Bebo, never heard of it? Don’t make me feel old okay. It was a little bit like Facebook, but you could change your skin and you could have quotes (of course I was a basic teen and had cute quotes about that special someone! Sending hearts daily because I could too!
4. Lindsey Lohan
Let’s be honest Lindsey Lohan was in absolutely everything, and we absolutely loved it. Every teen movie, from Confessions of Teenage Drama Queen to my all time favourite Mean Girls, it was like the unspoken law of the 00s that these movies would need to be watched constantly.
5. Jane Norman
We all loved those bags, we would go to Jane Norman and get those bags put our gym kits in, and basically carry them anywhere and everywhere! They were very much a necessity!
6. Wanting to have a wardrobe like Lizzie McGuire
Growing up I always adored her wardrobe, I mean in the 00s it was literally the height of fashion, it was sheer perfection! Her denim jacket was always goals though!
7. Living on MSN
I loved MSN! Honestly it was the best thing ever, I’d waste so many hours on it just to speak to the friends that I had basically seen all day. Putting hearts in between the names of the people who I classed as my closest friends because that was just how teen me rolled.
8.Uggs over jeans
Pretty sure I even attempted to wear this combo in the summer mainly because I feel like I was at my coolest then!
9. Avril Lavigne
If you didn’t at least listen to Sk8ter boi at least twice a day then you were missing out on this perfect song in history!
10. Quoting lyrics on absolutely everything
Lyrics was basically every tweet, every Facebook status, you name it, it was everything!
