How Many of These Old-School Candies Did You Eat as a Kid? [Photos]

In so many ways, we really had it good as kids. We had awesome cartoons, excellent (read: awful) fashion, and most of all, really great candy. Am I right? There are so many candies that used to be all over the place that I never see anymore. Of course, there are always the classic candy bars that stick around forever. The weirder stuff might not last as long, but it sure does bring back memories.

Did You Wear These Ugly Shoes as a Kid? [Photos]

Do you ever look back at old photos of yourself as a kid and think, what was I wearing? Luckily, we grew up in the 90s, which is an excellent excuse for horrible fashion choices. So many awful things were happening in fashion then. One thing in particular that little kids get away with is ugly shoes. So many of the shoes we wore as kids seemed awesome at the time, but were really atrocious.

Things That Pissed Your Parents Off When You Were A Kid

Okay so pretty much everything we did when we were kids was an attempt to piss our parents off. Hey, isn't that our duty as their children? Parents need a little excitement in their lives, and until we graduated high school, we were there to provide it. And isn't it so fun now to look and laugh at how absolutely obnoxious we were!

Friday Faves: Snow Days Then and Now

Remember when you were a little kid, and you’d actually wake up on time for school… just so you could huddle next to the radio and listen for your school to be called on the list of snow days? With winter’s doom impending and temperatures dropping faster than an eight ball at Amy Winehouse’s flat, we can’t help but cross our fingers and pray… Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Channeling My Inner Susie Homemaker

Some women have been blessed with the cooking, cleaning, and child-rearing skills any '50s housewife would be jealous of. You know the type - they go to their friends' houses bearing baked goods, they know how to get that tricky stain out of delicate material, they're just all-around nurturers.

Coupled. In Church

In the few weeks before I moved away for college 3 years ago, I remember being over at a friend's house when the topic of religion in college was brought up by her mom. She was a big supporter of being active in a church at school, arguing that it was the best place to meet like-minded people. "If you find someone in college that you fall in love with, it'll be a heck of a lot easier if they're the same religion as you."

Being Grown Up Has Its Perks

God, the kiddies sure do have it made. They have no worries other than what cartoon they will watch after school or what Snack Pack they'll throw in their lunchbox. Their homework consists of 10 math problems and they merely have to sit at a table to be fed a full, delicious home cooked meal.

Elementary Schools Put The Lame in Halloween

Elementary school sure has changed since we were kids. Today, recess is getting shorter, cafeterias are getting healthier, and Halloween is getting much, much less fun.

What I Learned From My Summer Job

Since I don't plan on teaching swimming or working with kids in the future, I didn't anticipate learning anything super important through this job. I figured I'd get a tan, make some money, and get really pruney fingers now and then. But while I was teaching these little kids how to stay afloat in a large body of water, they were teaching me a much bigger lesson.

Coupled. The Go-To Gal

As I said last week, when I'm with my friends I tend to feel like the mom of the group. Well, I've recently discovered that there are some perks to being the momma of the group and the only girl in my group in a long term relationship. I've become the one that everyone else comes to for advice or when they have an awkward relationship/sex questions.

Religion and Relationships

Even if someone's beliefs can't be put under a specific religious category, everyone has their own opinion on how humans got here and how people should live their lives. All of these different views come together to make a unique world, but religious differences have the potential to hurt or even end a relationship.
