Subject: 2002

Written By: XYkid on 12/10/13 at 2:32 pm

So I made a thread awhile back about 2004. 2002 and 2004 were probably my top favourite years of the 2000s decade.
Vanilla Coke came out that year, Sugababes released their second album, Home Movies began its long awaited second season, the Powerpuff Girls film was released, and Laura Pausini released her first English album towards the end of the year.
That summer, I got to travel to Europe, and saw the Tour de France, back when Lance was loved and adored by many. The Ketchup Song was on EVERY radio station in Europe that summer too.
For me the year came to a bittersweet end, I got my new Gamecube for Christmas but on the other hand I had to say goodbye to Oregon and move to Texas.

I got a gamecube that year. I remember getting super Mario sunshine along with it, then during Christmas,  I got Mario party 4 and super smash bros. Melee.

I also met a good friend of mine which today we are still friends,  but I haven't talked with him since he's been busy with college.

I remember the mario got milk commercial.  It was interesting.

Codename kids next door and American Idol came out

I started watching mature shows

My mom bought a ps2 and I was playing pacman world 2. I'm not sure if that was 2002 or 2003.

I was in 3rd/4th grade

Ludacris' move b***h was the rage

I was watching fairly oddparents,  spongeBob, time squad, adult swim, and the other classic cartoons

Left eye of R&B group TLC died

I was still playing N64, super Nintendo, sega dreamcast, and gameboy color.

I was going to the park everyday after school

I was going on the computer, not for the internet,  but to play games on there

Chalkzone premiered

I started puberty/interested in girls

I was going on the computer to play games on there but also for the internet :)

2002 was one of my peak years to buy and sell on eBay, even though I was not 18 yet. Back in those days, eBay was still fun and transactions between private parties only were a big deal.

2002 was also the first year I was allowed to drink lighter alcoholic beverages like beer and wine.

Isn't that you have to be 14 or 16 to legally drink alcohol?

In 2002 I was 11 years old. In the spring I was in 5th grade and in the fall of 2002 I started 6th grade.

I remember having a Nintendo 64 (I got it in 1999 or 2000) and Gameboy Advance.

I watched Even Stevens and the Disney Channel a lot. Back then they had more teenage type shows.

I remember the first Spiderman movie came out, the one with Tobey Maguire.

I remember hearing these songs on the radio this year.

In Germany it's 16 for light alcoholic beverages, for example beer or wine. For stronger stuff like vodka etc. you have to be 18.

2002 was one of the best years of my childhood. It was also the last full year (that honor gets extended to 2003 since I was still under 13 for a majority of the year)

-Like Brandon, I made the transition from 5th grade (elem. school) to 6th (jr. high) that year.
-In 5th grade/late 2001 I had made a bunch of new friends, most of whom I'm still friends with to this day. I remember the summer of 2002 being a lot of fun hanging out with them.
-My family also went on vacation to Myrtle Beach that summer.
-We got our dog Daisy in August
-I had gotten GameCube for Christmas 2001 so a lot of 2002 was spent playing the games Super Smash Bros. Melee, Luigi's Mansion, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Party 4.
-Watching Disney Channel and Cartoon Network...for years Nick had been my only option.
-Family reunion in the Spring of 2002

And one more thing about 2002 that I really loved...

I loved that stuff as well! I'm sad they discontinued it.
What you can do though, it get a can of regular pepsi, put a blue jolly rancher inside of it, let it sit for an hour, and it tastes just like blue pepsi!

I just really liked the berry taste. It didn't taste like cola much.

Last year around the release of The Dark Knight Rises, Mountain Dew released a beverage that tasted very similar to it (not to be confused with Mtn Dew Voltage)

I remember that, to me it just tasted exactly like Voltage. I can see why they discontinued it.

They were similar yet I could taste the difference. I actually preferred the taste of Dark Berry (had to look up what it was called) to that of Voltage.

Might as well revive this topic...

But ah 2002,

I remember getting that Pepsi blue from my local corner store with my cousin I thought it tasted a little odd, vice city came out, me and my little brother watched Malcolm in the middle religiously, also started the 1st grade that year, bought my first CD with my birthday money at walmart (let go by avril lavigine).

Tons of more memories from school showing up on my first of 1st grade... hiding in the coat room cause I was so nervous to start the day with all those strangers, still friends with most of the kids from my first grade class too! even though we all parted and did our own things in high school.

Crazy how time flies

I remember my father saying: "a mobile phone? What do I need that for?" (guess who's addicted today to his phone and tablet..)
and my sister was a huge fan of Atomic Kitten and Avril Lavigne so unconsciously I got to know all the songs xD
And I was busy playing Age of Empires.
