~*2003-2007*~ I could list passionately on any of these big topics. // #draftmas 🎄
  1. Livejournal
  2. Teen Girl Squad / Homestar Runner
    Still quote it. I read somewhere this was the website that jumpstarted the millennials on wasting time online for fun. I say it was hysterically funny.
  3. Wicked the Musical
    Literally EVERYTHING to do with being a huge fangirl of Wicked. I knew all the words and obsessed about how I was so misunderstood like Elphaba and dressed up as her in 2004 for Halloween, green paint and all. I was online talking about "Cheno" and "Dee" like they were my BFFs. I finally convinced my mom to take me to NYC to see it and cried the whole time.

    Came out while I was in high school, and holy moly. It was so accurate but so funny. I saw it in theaters with my friends.
