Ahh, to be young and part of a fad. Those were the days. Thinking that whatever you were into at the moment was the most important thing in the world. What fools we were.
Seriously, have you ever spoken to someone about something they used to be really into, and have them not sound embarrassed? If so, that means one of two things. They are still really into an old fad, or they are too embarrassed to appear embarrassed.
I guess it is a good thing we can look back at younger versions of ourselves and feel shame. That's how we grow and learn. Still, I wonder what lesson could possibly be learned from these truly embarrassing phases.

22. Nobody knows why this happens. It just does.
23. You actually cared? Wow. What a shocker.
24. Fads are temporary. Tattoos are not.
25. I don't know why but I feel like these two are related.
26. Ugh, I hate her.
27. So you're saying I should stop watching "My Little Pony"?
28. We all need time machines for this exact reason.
29. Turns out, they were not.
31. Yeah. Don't even try to defend this one.
32. That's always rough.
33. That's why I'm at school during the day.
