Jack Edwards gives us all of the feels by taking us on a trip down memory lane.
If you were born between 1997 and 2001 then you’ll understand the feeling of not being a ‘proper’ millennial but also not being able to fully relate to Generation Z. Instead, we’re just a weird mix of both without a label. And sorry Jack, ‘The Golden Age’ is most certainly taken.
Jack gives us major nostalgia by reminding us of all the things that growing up in the 2000s brought, from the TV on wheels at school to throwing on your JLS hoodie. Did we all have the same childhood?
He talks about the times when we would run home from school to catch the latest episode of Tracy Beaker and Scooby Doo. When the only stress we had was trying to fit all these TV shows into one night and making sure you didn’t miss anything because there were no catch-up services. Of course, the best moments of TV were always the huge crossover events. We were living for That’s So Suite Life of Hannah Montana.
Jack brought us back to a time before we all had an internet connection in our homes and all the computer was used for was games and creating art on Microsoft Paint. “Now, of course, kids are watching Logan Paul,” he says. Ouch…
The 2000s most certainly also had the best fashion. Jack’s epitome of the fashion of the time was the icon that is Ashley Tisdale, with her bright colours, layers, and feathered scarves. But that’s nothing compared to the fashion trend that was the double collared tops.
However, the 2000s were not all fun and games for us British kids. Jack’s main complaint about this era was that the UK got everything months after America. What’s up with that? We’re still wondering…
