This Is What Life Was Like For A Pre-Teen In The Early ‘00s
You're not quite awake yet...the sun is just rising and you're in the stage of sleeping right before waking up.
Then BAM! Your alarm clock wakes you up — with crust in your eyes and ~stank~ in your mouth.
You hear Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America in the background as you slowly move from your room to the bathroom.
You're finally ~awake~ as you brush your teeth, wash your face, and take a shower — "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter is playing on the radio.
You wouldn't exactly win the best-dressed award or anything today, but you're finally ready for school. You grab a Pop-Tart and run for the bus!
You find yourself behind these kids who keep saying, "This is Sparta!" back and forth to one another because pop culture y'know?
You didn't realize the kid you're sitting next to is blasting "Dragosea Din Tei" by O-Zone through his headphones, subtly doing the Numa Numa dance.
You grab your iPod, scroll to St. Elsewhere by Gnarls Barkley and put "Crazy" on repeat, because you're basic.
The bus drops your disheveled ass off and now you have to walk through the gates of hell.
Just kidding it's time for class.
You zoned out pretty quickly, but the kid sitting next to you grabbed your attention because they brought their Pokémon binder instead of the one they actually needed for class.
Then you text your friend on your Motorola phone about how Katharine McPhee should've won American Idol over Taylor Hicks no matter how catchy "Heaven Knows" is.
After eating the Red Baron pizza they served at lunch you go into the computer lab to check your Top 8 on Myspace, but try your hardest to look like you're studying.
But you get a notification on AIM from your friend that's literally two seats down from you.
You spend the rest of your time playing Bejeweled until it's time for your next class.
Things are finally turning around for you because your teacher forgot the lesson plan, and you know what that means...
...Bill Nye the Science Guy time! Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!
At this point all you can think about is going home to watch Total Request Live.
As the extremely relevant Borat would say, "Very nice!"
You persevered today. You hop on the bus humbled, but not defeated — ready to go home.
You channel surf and land on BET to watch Big Tigger freestyle on Rap City better than some of the rappers on the show.
But, now that you've spent enough time procrastinating you decide to go through your mix CD to find the perfect soundtrack to do your homework to.
After you finish and you're completely drained of energy you get a second wind because it's dinner time and the Season Finale of Lost is on.
Your eyes get heavy...
...so you head to your room and fall asleep to Amy Winhouse's "Back to Black" album.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
