You’re counting down the hours until the next episode of “Pretty Little Liars”, and you’re wondering who could possibly be “A.” Prince William and Kate Middleton just got engaged and you get butterflies every time you see a photo of them looking lovingly at each other. Hey, love is a beautiful thing. When you get home, you log onto Facebook and maybe give your crush (or, let’s be real, your BFF) a “Poke.” After you do your homework, you play a game of Angry Birds and things. are. good.

Now, flash forward to over 10 years later. We’re now well into the 2020s, and all you want to do is go back to 2010 and listen, we hear you. Nostalgia is more popular than ever these days, inspiring everything from countless remakes and sequels to TikTok trends and aesthetics. So in honor of what life was like a decade ago, here’s a list that will make you seriously nostalgic for the simpler times. From the throwback music hits to all the “I can’t believe that actually happened” moments, take a trip down memory lane. Grab your time machine, because 2010, here we come.
