2000s Shows That Perfectly Capture Our Teens

Growing Up in the 2000s was just too amazing, and frankly I blame it on the TV. Let me just start off by admitting that I have watched WAY too much TV as a Teenager! In fact I was dedicated to some of these shows, enough to wake up at 5am at the age of 13 and catch an episode that aired at Indian Time just because I couldn’t wait till it aired at night in the US. Here is a list of memorable shows I still can’t get enough of !

1. The Office

If you’ve been on the internet at all in the last 10 years or so, you know that The Office is a cultural staple. It’s full of side-splitting bits, quotable moments, and wholesome character arcs, so it’s no mystery why it’s so widely beloved. Some episodes are so iconic, in fact, that if you haven’t seen them it’s worth taking a few minutes to educate yourself.

2. Dil Mil Gaye

Dill Mill Gayye, the medical soap opera, enjoyed an unbelievable fan following and ran successfully for two seasons. The show gave TV industry some popular names like Karan Singh Grover, Shilpa Anand, Drashti Dhami to name a few. Set in the backdrop of Sanjeevani Hospital, the show dealt with the pressures, drama, romance, inter personal relationships and humour in the lives of surgical interns and resident doctors.

3. Gossip Girl

It’s been more than a decade since teen drama favorite Gossip Girl premiered and immersed viewers into the upper crust world of rich high school students’ Manhattan. At the time, the relatively-unknown cast could easily be boiled down to pretty boys and the blonde girl from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Today, with the cast members grown up, it’s a different story. Time flies when you’re watching reruns!

4. Suite Life of Zack and Cody

I don’t know about you, but growing up I always watched The Suite Life of Zack & Cody on Disney Channel. The show takes place in the Tipton Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts where twin teenage boys wreak havoc and cause the manager problems. And by the way, they live in the hotel too. The show ran from 2005 until 2008. However, the legacy continued when they made a pretty good spin-off called, The Suite Life on Deck, which takes place on a cruise ship.

5. Miley Jab Hum Tum

This college romance was a favourite amongst the youth. It had all the perfect elements which got the crowd hooked to the television screens. Be it the Morena sister duo – Gunjan and Nupur Bhushan (Sanaya Irani and Rati Pandey), the hearthrob and college stud Samrat or the handsome and nerdy Mayank (Arjun Bijlani), this one made for a super good looking cast. Its this very show where Sanaya and Mohit fell in love with each other and are now happily married. Miley Jab Hum Tum, quite literally!!

6. The Vampire Diaries

It’s been just over a year since The Vampire Diaries concluded after eight seasons, leading to hours upon hours of rewatching by devoted fans. The show was truly something else, part horror show, part drama series, and part soap opera. The brutal portrayal of vampires and other supernatural figures satisfied fantasy fans and eased some of the concerns of those skeptical about the show being just another vampire show, amidst the era of Twilight and True Blood. In short, this was the best vampire show ever made.

7. Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahi

the fact that Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin is one of the best Indian shows ever created, is not up for debate. So imagine my joy when I found out that rumours are doing the rounds that the makers of the show are looking to make a remake of the show.

8. Avatar: The Last Airbender

True fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra will bring these shows up any chance they get. Hell, it’s been years (10 years) and I’m still salty that Nickelodeon, Netflix, or some other streaming service hasn’t ordered Avatar back to series. What are they waiting for? The franchise has given rise to some of the most beloved characters ever. Not to mention, they’re popular with both children and adults (let’s be real though, way more with adults)

Best Bags for College 2018 (my picks)

The best part about going back to college has always been all the new stuff I get to buy! A backpack is probably the most used item I invest on. I use my backpacks for at least 6-7 month in a row, and during those months it becomes home to all notes, pens, pencils, highlighters, textbooks and countless other things! Because my backpack is so essential, I always like to invest in a good one! Why not? After all, it’s the one piece of fashion you’re not going to be often changing. So here are some of my favorite bag pack pics for the coming year!

What to Pack for College!

College move-in day is an exciting experience for all freshman, but what many students and parents don’t realize is the amount of stuff they should be taking. At home we have comfortable spaces to fill with items of our choosing; however a lot of times what we forget is how much of that stuff is really essential for us. Thus a big mistake college freshmen end up making is overfilling their dorm spaces. This article should help you streamline exactly what to take for a smooth semester.

1.Clothing 

In state or out-of-state, any college student will only use around 20 pieces of clothing. In my closet, I like to keep five bottoms. I’m more of an aim for comfort kind of girl, so I keep three pairs of tights that I also use for working out and two jeans, one light pair, and one dark. For tops, I aim for around three tanks that can be easily layered. I keep around two cardigans of neutral colors that can be worn with tanks or tees. For the remaining part of my wardrobe I have five fancy or dressy tops for occasions I need to look presentable for, and around five casual tops that I can wear to class, the gym, or a grocery store.

For at home clothing I like to keep three shorts and three at home tops. These three pairs of PJ’s last me a semester as I wash clothes every three days to prevent an overflow of dirty clothing.

2. Shoes

College is a lot of walking, in all honesty, your best investment is a good pair of sneakers for the summer and a nice pair of UGG boots for the winter. Other than that a pair of nude heels or a pretty pair of metallic sandals will help you out on those dressy occasions. Also, keep a pair of flip-flops handy for anything from the grocery store to the community bathroom.

3. Note Taking Supplies

For the girls who love a plethora of pens and cute pencils, you won’t have time to use those in college so don’t waste your parent’s money on it. Instead, buy on a pack of 36 blue or black pens, I like ballpoint bic as they glide allowing me to write faster. Also, keep a 15-12 pack of pencils for testing days. If you love color coordinated notes like me keep a pack of 5 highlighters in handy, this way you can color as you revise.

4. laundry basket

I highly suggest a strong laundry basket, as mine was a pain to carry to the laundry rooms. Make sure your basket has handles to make your job easier, also make sure it has a lid or top cover, so your room looks clean.

5. Cups

Buy two cups one for water and one for coffee. These will come in handy when you’re running late to class or when your too lazy to grab water down the hall in the middle of the night.

6. Comforter

Your dorm room is small, and you don’t need to cramp it with another bulky comforter. Invest in 1 good soft comforter that you can wash while your studying. I suggest a t-shirt comforter as they as too soft to resist.

7. Skin-Care

College is a stressful time, and you don’t need pimples popping up all over to make it worse. Invest in a good skincare routine. Preferably a gentle face wash, toner, and moisturizer as you won’t have time or space to go the whole nine yards with masks, gels, and oils.
