Remember last decade, how you used to quote Mean Girls word for word while talking to your best friend  on your Nokia cell phone? You wore low-rise jeans with tiny t-shirts  and Rocket Dog sandals and spent your afternoons requesting music videos on TRL and learning the dance moves to "I'm a Slave 4 U." We'll be honest; we still quote Mean Girls and try to copy Britney Spears  routines, but we look back on those days  with equal parts dreamy nostalgia  and sheer horror. We're taking a trip down memory lane with all the best (and worst) things about coming of age in the aughts. So here we go: you know you were a teenager in the 2000s if . . .
You Memorized the Remix to "Ignition"
Shook It Like a Polaroid Picture
Took Off All Your Clothes
And Denied Things by Saying, "It Wasn't Me," in a Jamaican Accent
You Thought These Two Would Be Together Forever
Same With These Two
And These Two
Your Jeans Didn't Have Back Pockets
Or Belt Loops
But They Were as Low as Humanly Possible
You Spent Hours Choosing a Song to Play as Your Outgoing Voicemail Message
And recording it at just the right moment.
Crafting Your AIM Away Message With Emotional Song Lyrics (or Cryptic, Attention-Seeking Blurbs)
Downloading Music From Kazaa and Limewire
Then Burning That Music Onto Blank CDs
Not to mention decorating them with Sharpies.
And Organizing Your Top Friends on MySpace
It was never without drama.
You Were Addicted to Texting and Playing Snake on Your Nokia Cell Phone
And You Kitted It Out With a New Cover Every Month
Then You Got It Taken Away For Running Up the Bill
This Was Your First iPod
It was like carrying around a hockey puck.
And You Had to Wait a Week to See That Selfie You Took
You Quoted Mean Girls Religiously
Learned the Cheer Routines From Bring It On
Tried to Surf Like in Blue Crush
And Wanted to Take a Road Trip With Your Girlfriends, à la Crossroads
You Remember This Miley Cyrus
This Hilary Duff
And This Rihanna
You Thought This Was the Best Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever
Until Beyoncé in 2013, of course.
You Learned All the Dance Moves to "I'm a Slave 4 U"
No, Really. Every Move
Even the Supersexy Ones!
When You Got Home From School, You Made Yourself Some Easy Mac
Requested Videos on TRL
Watched Celebrities Get Punk'd
And Flipped Through YM Magazine
You Wore Tube Tops and Prairie Skirts
And Juicy Couture Sweatsuits
Then You Accessorized With a Tiffany Charm Bracelet
And Those Sunglasses That Were Barely Tinted Enough to Protect Your Eyes
You Remember Samantha Mumba
You Hung Out at the Virgin Megastore
And the Vans SkatePark
And Played Dance Dance Revolution in the Middle of the Mall

You Didn't Leave the House Without Your MAC Lipglass
Or Your Rocket Dog Sandals
Or Your Von Dutch Trucker Hat
Or Your Dooney & Bourke Logo Purse
You Got Your Belly Button Pierced and Bought the Dangliest Ring You Could Find
Then Showed It Off in Your Tiny Hollister T-Shirt
Your Feet Stayed Warm in a Pair of Ugg Boots
While Your Legs Cooled Off in a Denim Miniskirt
And If You Were Feeling Fancy, You'd Stick on a Crystal Tattoo
You Were Hooked on The O.C.
Wished You Lived in Laguna Beach
Thought About Who Your Phone-a-Friend Would Be
And Wondered If You'd Be the Weakest Link
You Remember When Kelly Clarkson Won American Idol
When Gwen Stefani Went Harajuku
And When Christina Aguilera Got "Dirrty"
With two R's.

You Wondered If Beyoncé and Jay Z Were Dating
You Listened to "Where the Party At" on Repeat Even Though You'd Never Actually Been to a Party

And You Listened to "In Da Club" on Repeat Even Though You'd Never Actually Been in a Club
You Remember When Jessica Simpson Thought Tuna Was Chicken
And When Paris Hilton Thought Walmart Sold "Wall Stuff"
You Wore Your Hair Stick Straight
Or Maybe in One of Those Ponytails With the Two Strands Hanging Down in Front
Sometimes You Did a Few Front Twists
Or Flipped the Ends Out
And You Weren't Afraid to Try Cornrows
Basically, You Were the Hottest Thing Ever
And You Should Look Back on That Time With Pride
No matter how mortifying it looks in pictures.
