    Doesn't this just feel like AGES ago? LOL, she's so relatable though!

    OK, so this happened more than once.

    4. Using emojis in text messages.

    Lit'rally IDK how people communicated before emojis existed, but they did. #TBT to the Stone Ages, y'all.

    5. The first time you SWOONED over these guys.

    I know it seems like the boys of One Direction have been with us our entire lives, but they actually got together in 2010. Crazy, I know!

    6. Picking the perfect filter on Instagram.

    7. "YOLO."

    Remember the halcyon days when you actually had to SAY "you only live once" instead of just ~abbreving~ to #YOLO? Seems like so long ago, right?

    8. Going to see the last Harry Potter movie in theaters.

    12. Drinking chardonnay and watching your favorite Real Housewives.


    I don't want to know what reality television was like before The Real Housewives TBH.

    Quite honestly, this feels like eons ago, but the performance is so ~ICONIC~ we will never forget it. But who were those two backup singers/dancers with her? Maybe some '90s kids can answer that question.

    15. When Emma Watson got a pixie cut.

    Has ever a haircut inspired our generation so much? I think not. And then she inspired Miley, Bey, and JLaw after her. ***FLAWLESS.

    16. Dancing to "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea.

    I honestly can't remember a time when "Fancy" WASN'T a thing. Can you?

    17. Wishing you were Blue Ivy Carter.

    18. Ellen's Oscar selfie.
