So much Top 8 drama!

1. You took the perfect bathroom selfie with an actual camera.

Bonus points if it was an SLR.

2. In fact, you had all your Myspace angles down.

3. You always thanked people for adding you.

4. You’d spend hours writing an About Me which totally summed up your own brand of unique adolescent angst.

5. You’d cheat on the iPod shuffle quizzes so the answers all made perfect sense.

“OMG! It worked so well!”

6. Bulletins were the longform Facebook statuses of the mid-00s.

7. If you logged into your account and saw this, you took a screenshot and posted it to your profile.

“Yay! More of this please!”

8. PC 4 PC – yeah?

“You are SO FIT! xXxXxX”

“But does it sum me up as a person?”

20. Even though as soon as you click on your friend’s profiles the first thing you’ll do is mute their music.

28. You knew Myspace Tom would be your forever friend.
