Really all you got were burnt orange highlights that also made your hair as dry as straw.

3. Having one of these as your go-to pool/beach/lake/pond bag:

Somehow you managed to squeeze a towel, a couple of magazines, a change of clothes, suntan lotion, CD Walkman (with backup batteries), CDs, a bathing suit, and a bottle of Sun-In into this.

16. Also overly plucking your eyebrows from boredom.

Oh Drew, you gave us so much to aspire to in the thin-thin brow department.

17. Spending an afternoon taking photos and selfies of you and your friends with your disposable camera, and then quickly taking it to the one-hour photo place to get them developed.

Of course you immediately ripped up and threw away the photos you didn’t like of yourself.

19. Wearing your Steve Madden platform sandals with the stretchy vamp with EVERYTHING.

Weddings, backyard BBQs, dinner at your grandmas, Fourth of July party — yup, these were appropriate for all of them.

25. Sporting your shortalls whenever you wanted to feel tomboy cute.

27. Spending all morning and afternoon talking to that ONE friend who somehow managed to get herself grounded all summer.

"Yeah, sorry you're grounded, Amanda, but I got to go. We're all meeting up in 10 minutes by the Dairy Queen at the mall."
