#TBT: Want to Feel Old?

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

Recently, I have randomly had the feeling of “Wow, I am getting old.” Now only being 22 years old, my parents and their friends would probably roll their eyes at my statement. After discovering many movies, TV shows and songs that are a decade old, however, I realized how time is flying by so fast.

For a special Throwback Thursday from Her Campus BC, here are some decade-old popular movies, TV shows, and songs that we were addicted to as well as headline events from 2004.

Movies that Came Out in 2004: White Chicks, Mean Girls, The Notebook, Napoleon Dynamite, 50 First Dates, 13 Going on 30

Some of the Most Popular Songs of 2004: “Yeah!” by Usher feat. Lil Jon and Ludacris, “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, “This Love” by Maroon 5, “The Way You Move” by Outcast, and “Goodies” by Ciara

TV Shows that Premiered in 2004: Project Runway, The Biggest Loser, Laguna Beach, LOST, Desperate Housewives

Fashion Trends of 2004: Von Dutch (thanks Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie), Velour Track Suits, Abercrombie and Hollister Polo Shirts, Trucker Hats

Headline Events of this Year:

  • Britney Spears got married, twice: once to Jason Alexander, which was annulled a few days later and once to Kevin Federline.
  • Janet Jackson had a wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl.
  • Facebook launches.
  • Hurricane Charley hits Florida and devastates the homes of many Floridians.
  • The season finale of Friends airs, we all cry and feel like the world will end and that television is not worth watching anymore.

Hope you all enjoyed this #TBT nostalgic kick!
