Subject: What was the best year of the 00s in your life?

Written By: 80sfan on 03/28/13 at 10:57 pm

For me it was 2004. I lost weight (before I gained it back), I made tons of friends, I liked my room in my house then. And I loved the energy of the year overall.

You?

2000 was just another year for me, but I loved the energy of the year that year. It still had that 'millenial/late 90s/internet' feel to it!

My personal life in the first part of the 00s was so different from my life in the late part.
In the first half, I was still highly oriented to my parents and my home and I didn't really do a lot of things individually - in the late half however, my more independent life began and I started for example to travel on my own intercontinentally.

When it comes to my teenage years, I'd say, 2001 was the best year of my life. From my early adult life, I'd say it was either 2006 or 2009.

Mid 2001 to early 2002.  Late 2002 was the worst, but 2003 was perfect and 2004 was ok. 2005-2009 were mediocre at best and they sucked.

That's also a totally different world to be 11 vs. 21 - so it's even more 'strange' in your case . I was already a teenager at the beginning of the 00s.

11 years old, you're a kid and almost in puberty. At 21, you could be married, have a kid, in an apartment, have a career, etc, etc.

In all honesty, 2000.  It was the last full year of childhood, so I remember it quite fondly.  2001, the second half, was childhood's end.  Late 2001 to 2003 just plain sucked in my personal life.  Things improved in 2004.

That said, the best years of my life didn't start until the second half of 2010.  From then up until the end of 2012 was a ton of new experiences, both good and bad, and a very memorable time in my life.  2013 up until a few days ago was a "swing year."  As my first year out of college (December 2012 graduate, Super Senior and a half due to a one year study abroad), it could have been either great or horrible.  I just found two days ago that I scored my dream job of teaching English in Japan, so it looks like 2013 will go as another good year and I'll be spending the mid-2010s in Japan.

Quite frankly, I was an impulsive teenager in the 00s. Most of the decade was pretty bad, minus the year 2000. In a way it's great not to 'peak' in my life yet and to have it unfold slowly. Although I'm not going to make the same mistakes I did when I was a teenager.

the best thing I can say for me is that before I went deaf in 2003 I was going to junior college and got to get away from my mom.  Didn't seem to last too long though before I wen't deaf.  That's my best so far.

2000 great, but I was at the same school I was in the 90's so it was like a 90's year.
2001 to May 2002 (that's when the school year ended).
2003 was the best.
2004 was O.K.

11 years old, you're a kid and almost in puberty. At 21, you could be married, have a kid, in an apartment, have a career, etc, etc.

AI agree about 11. But 13-14 is like semi-adulthood. A lot of people lose their virginity before 15 and get pregnant at 13-15. A lot of people work in middle school and junior high. In fact a lot of people are more productive at that age than at 18-26, when you still don't have enough experience, but you've lost your street smarts because of college/university and giving too much a damn about politics and watching the news.

2000, was last great year without parents watching news all the time, sadness, and boredom due to 9/11, Late 90s culture was still going strong, finished my first year of school.

Lets see, Music was great(NSYNC's Bye Bye Bye, It's gonna be me, Aaliyah's Try Again, Techno/Trance)

The new movie theater opened up that year, movies I saw that year as far as I can remember, Big Mommas House and
Me Myself and Irene)

My first time of some "oldest in house", my cousin was having her sweet 16, so my older brother who was 11 at the time had to practice his dance routine, leaving me to myself, some boredom, but alot of freedom, watched spongebob marathon, TRL, movies, etc.

Cousins sweet 16 was fun.

we got our first modern PC with Windows ME(Millenum), I was excited because I never had a PC with a CD slot or Windows operating system, remember MS-DOS dir command? that's all we had before mid 2000,

Had a crush on Britney Spears still. Can recall my older brothers love for Max Steel(remember that?) and Mission Impossible 2.

X-men disappointed me when my brother got in home video in 2001, I thought it was going to be like the cartoon, where they had their costumes, etc, didn't grow to like this movie until years later, I missed out because I didn't like the lack of costume in cartoons.

Remember when Scary Movie came out on PPV(still have the video recording), this may have been in 2001.

Martin Lawrence was still going strong as I first saw Life and Blue Streak in 2000 on HBO

Eddie Murphy also with Life and Nutty Professor 2.

Brendan Frazer, Coyote Ugly and it's theme song(moonlight), Bring it on, Grinch. Oxyclean and Billy Mays,

What a time it was. got my first WCW action figuresof Sting and DDP in Christmas. Rugrats in Paris, recall Disney stuff, watched alot of TV in 2000, in my home videos when I see January 2000 then December I gained weight. I believe I was done with my Ricky Martin 1998-1999 craze(unless I liked "She Bangs", don't remember)

Still liked eminem

Major events that year,

NSYNC/Britney Spears craze in 2000, Valentines day 2000, Kindergarten Graduation, Cousin Sweet 16, Christmas 2000. Blockbuster PS1 and VHS still going strong.

2000 really should be catagorized with the late 90s, what a year, ranks with 1998, 1999 also my brother would turn 13 in 2001, so last full year of him being a kid.

In general, the early 00's (2000-2002/2003) brings back a lot of the best memories. It was pretty much my pre-teen years. If I had to pick my fave at the moment, it would be 2001, pre-9/11. I have so much fondness for the summer of that year, especially those last few weeks prior to 9/11 which I remember oh so clearly. Still got love for the other years though. I remember being so excited Jan. 1st, 2000 about being in a new millennium (and surviving Y2K!). I went to Disneyland that spring for the first time and I also started "middle school" that year. Loved the summer of 2002 because I went to Disney World for the first time (haven't been back since!) and enjoyed a lot of what was on the radio back then. Didn't travel summer of 2003, but that year brings back memories of going to the movies, burning CDs, my birthday party and hanging with close friends that I've since sadly grown apart from.

2004 was a fond year for me. Learned how to swim, hanging with my friends in 3rd grade while playing Pokemon Ruby and all the other GBA hits

2008- graduated from elementary school, finally moving on the next stage of my life.

But if i had a specific time, it would be the early 2000s because those were my younger kid years. Those were the days where all I did was play. PS2 all day, me and my friends playing GBA with the link cable and kickball in the street.  no worries about ACT and college, no real life problems.

For me, it's got to be 2000. I was 8 then, and I was enrolled in one of those "learn at your own pace" private schools, so school was a breeze. I had absolutely no worries. I played with my friends, watched TV (Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network were both excellent back then), and that was the first year I really "graduated" from listening to Christian/super clean music chosen by my parents, to listening to the music I wanted to listen to. I loved *NSYNC, Britney Spears, and Hanson; and when my parents weren't looking, I would watch some of the more "adult" music videos on MTV. It was just the best year of my childhood.

2004 was also great for me, but the reasons have little to do with pop culture. Personal reasons. The end of 2004 marked the end of my childhood era, and from then on it was all teen stuff.

The early 2000's I was in elementary school. 2005-2009 I was in high school. I think 2005-2006 were the best for me. 2009 was the year I graduated high school and honestly my senior year wasn't that great. The economy tanked right at the start of my senior year so it kinda sucked.
