It wasn't "just a phase."
You feel nostalgic for the days when wearing leather wristbands instead of Livestrong bracelets was a sign of rebellion.
You still very staunchly refuse to wear anything resembling a polo shirt.
You turn your nose up at "professional" hair dye ads because you know that Manic Panic is the one true dye.
The high-fashion stud trend was the best thing that ever happened to you.
You feel a forbidden twinge of attraction to alternative-looking people, even if they're not really your type.
Meanwhile, you still don't get what's so hot about the super-buff model type.
You shook your head when Kim Kardashian started wearing a corset, because you were on that YEARS ago.
Your thick, black eyeliner game is way beyond everyone else in your age group, because you wore it for a decade before anyone else.
You're still a sucker for all things plaid.
Most people wax nostalgic for Rugrats, but you're more of an Invader Zim kind of person.
Same goes for superheroes and Johnny The Homicidal Maniac.

And even though Hot Topic has rebranded in recent years, you still can't help but feel grateful that you shopped there in its heyday.
