If it wasn't emo, it wasn't worth it.
You made the mistake of getting your ears pierced there.
And you thought multipack earrings were a bargain even though they made your piercings green.
You'd go with your friends after school and be kicked out for being too disruptive.
You tried on hundreds of triangle keffiyeh scarves.
And had that one friend who would steal a £2.99 item just for kicks.
In fact, you probably had a matching group charm or friendship bracelet that was stolen from Claire's.
And you weren't real besties until you had the Claire's seal of approval.
You easily got addicted to buying Claire's lucky bags.
You were obsessed with Coca Cola and Starburst flavoured lip balm.
And bought yourself a quirky pencil case at the end of every half term.
You thought striped and checkered sweatbands completed your emo look.
And were inspired by Avril Lavigne to wear ties on t-shirts.
All of this was obviously done in heavy eyeliner and a fringe that covered three quarters of your face.
You wasted money on nail varnish that would dry up after one use.
Wore bangles that would discolour your skin.
And headbands that were too physically painful to be considered fashionable.
And you'd buy fake nails and stick them on with blue tack.
You came up with inventive ways to style your multicoloured beads.
Walking into neon heaven made you feel truly at home.
You thought these spiky ball earrings were super punk.
And often wore odd earrings because you were so random.
