As the calendar turns another page, and we find ourselves staring down the barrel of 2018, now is the time to look back on our childhoods, and everything that we got to enjoy, and endure that children of today's world will just never understand.

The year 2000 doesn't seem that long ago, but in reality, the people born that year are going to be old enough to vote this year... Does that make you feel old?

Let's take a look at some of the things that will transport us back to the 90s.

1. When getting your music took hours, included a host of viruses for your computer, and was considered highly illegal.


2. After downloading your music illegally, you would burn them onto CDs that would then become so scratched you wouldn't be able to listen to them anymore.


3. Oh ya, you also had to transport this massive thing along with you everywhere you went in order to listen to your tunes.


4. Why didn't they make Discmen the right size to fit in your pocket?


5. When you actually had to wait in order re-watch your favorite movie.

6. Or you had to re-spool the tape back onto your cassette in order to jam out to that 90s boy-band music.


7. After cassettes and discmen became obsolete, you still had to carry multiple devices to communicate and listen to music.

9. When texting was more an art form, and those who mastered T9 were considered Gods.


10. When you were trying to call someone from your home phone, but you had to untangle the damn cord first.

20 Statements You Haven't Heard Since You Were A Kid That'll Flood Your Brain With Memories

Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous. Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids. We are really lucky to have grown up in the time that we did, because we have gotten to experience the insanely fast technological advances that have been going on. Remember your first internet experience? You can probably still hear


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


They Told Us They Could Erase Pen, But It Turns Out Blue Erasers Have An Entirely Different Purpose

Going to class and using pen was a pretty confident move. What, you don't think you're going to make a mistake? I spell my own name wrong on a regular basis, how can you be so sure of yourself? Well, then came those blue erasers. The so-called pen erasers would help even those who are overconfident in their spelling abilities. In theory, they were supposed to remove the pen from your paper, or at least that's what we all thought. Instead, we would be left with torn paper and illegible notes. I was always terrified of writing in pen, so
