4. Worrying about going over your cell phone minutes.

"Dude, I am sorry, but you can't use my cell phone, I am almost over my minutes for the month! As it is I've already gone over my texting limit!"

5. Rushing to Blockbuster early on Fridays to make sure you could rent a copy of the newest release.

There was nothing worse than going to rent a movie and it not being there.


8. Using the TV Guide Channel to find out what's on.

Of course, sometimes you just ended up watching the TV Guide Channel instead of actually looking for something to watch.

9. Getting excited about burning a mix CD for some sort of occasion (like a road trip).

Of course, nothing ruined this more than getting the dreaded "encountered an error while burning" message 99% into burning the CD.

10. Finding the LiveJournals of people you went to school with and secretly reading them. And getting excited every time they posted a new entry.

12. Labeling every guy who cared even just a little bit about his appearance a "metrosexual."

"OMG, I saw Tony buying Bioré Pore Strips, he such a David Beckham."


15. Covering your arms with as many LiveStrong bracelets — and all the colors and causes that came after — as you could.

17. And finally, taking selfies for the sole purpose of updating your Myspace profile.
