Can anyone believe it’s actually 2018? Time continually flies by at a rapid pace and you simply blink and BAM: you’re an adult with adult responsibilities and you crave the simpler days of Xanga and AIM messenger.

If you grew up in the ’00s, this list is for you. Warning: intense feelings of nostalgia may come up when you scroll through this list. Side effects may include purchasing butterfly clips and blasting Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me” at full volume.

Having socks that reached mid-calf was so embarrassing. It was always important to fold your sock or cut it to prevent humiliation.

I relate to this more than anything in the entire world. Long before the trend of incredible flat-irons and hair straighteners, we mere peasants had to literally put our head on an ironing board and go to town. The results were…not great.

Okay, obviously everyone still loves PlayStation. But there was just something about the early 2000’s that really hits home when you think about booting up your EA Sports games.

Should we go ahead and put that on a t-shirt? For real though, that song played on loop constantly. Whether it was at middle school dances, or at home alone in your room as you cried thinking about your crush.

This is so spot on that it’s almost freaky. Also, look how big and clunky that TV is. We’re dying. What other things scream ’00s?

The 2000’s were a time when emo kids truly ran the world. Nobody could stop us! Also, where were you when you realized you were mispronouncing Aéropostale?

Everything was so difficult and yet we did it all. Should we all collectively just go work for Google?

Remember the beauty of AIM profiles? They were like coded messages.

The choker really compliments the whole look. Everyone in the ’00s was rocking this whole vibe/ensemble.

Let the early 2000’s insults fly free! We definitely called our siblings this at some point. There are still more 2000s gems….

The straightened hair that Pete Wentz rocks is truly out of this world. Let’s all go to Warped Tour!

It’s an aesthetic. Queen Britney was the #1 ruler of the early 2000’s and we’re here for it.

He was the original CW-type babe, long before Cole Sprouse came along. Those eyes! That hair! The smile!

This is maybe the most 2000’s picture ever. Sarah Michelle Gellar in front of a poster of the Spice Girls wearing butterfly clips. Scatter our ashes. We’re deceased.

Remember when we were all super stoked for Y2K? So stoked that cereal companies attempted to capitalize on it? What a wonderful, weird time it was. Let’s toast with a bowl of Millenios!
