#TBT

MySpace, gel pens, *NSYNC versus the Backstreet Boys, middle school and high school memories you would much rather forget but photographic evidence preserves the awkwardness… memories both good and bad, we reminisce on them all. Happy #ThrowbackThursday!

The things we love about summer in our college years are nothing like what we loved when we were younger. We’re throwing it back summer style with a few things we all patiently awaited as kids once school finally let out.

Before there was Claire Danes playing a CIA badass in HBO’s Homeland and before there was Jared Leto’s to-die-for man-bun, there was teen angst. And no, we’re not talking about Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” angst, but it comes pretty close. This week, Valley is throwin’ it back to the 90’s with My So-Called Life.

“Gilmore Girls” was an iconic TV show that aired from 2000-2007. It was about a single mother named Lorelai raising her daughter Rory in a very small town called Stars Hollow. Lorelai and Rory were known for their freakishly close relationship and undeniable bond that made them more like best friends than mother and daughter.

We are the millennial generation. We jammed out with our CD players, strapped Hit Clips to our belts and waited in line for the very first iPod. But we also saw the evolution of some pretty great musicians. So, for all you people out there still stuck in the 90s and early 2000s, here’s a playlist for when you’re feeling a little bit nostalgic.

Jewelry trends come and go, but the attention they get while they’re around is amazing. We all remember the choker necklaces, power beads and of course, charm bracelets. This week, Valley is taking its readers back to the early 2000s to reminiscence about Italian charm bracelets.

This week, TBT is dedicated to the unforgettable American Girl Dolls. Those 18-inch human-like dolls were the best part of our generation. They were our daughters when we played house and our best friends at home. Remember buying matching outfits? Oh, those were the days…

TBT: “The Clique” Series

This Thursday, let’s take a moment to reflect on the series of novels that is quite possibly the reason for the downfall of our generation: “The Clique.” In this series, a group of pretentious seventh graders – yes, seventh graders – refer to themselves as “the pretty committee.” I’m pretty sure if any of us referred to ourselves as “the pretty committee” today we would be exiled from this campus.

Everybody makes fun of MTV and VH1 “music” channels for doing everything that isn’t related to music, but we need to remember that they gave us the greatest gift of all – trashy reality dating shows. You can find trashy TV anywhere nowadays, but it isn’t the same as watching a marathon of trailer-park girls screaming at each other or some weird nerdy kid on MTV dating someone’s mom.
