2000-2010 reflections


It occurred to me sometime last week that we are nearing the end of the first decade of the 2000s. Insane! Can you picture 10 years ago and were you were at this time? I was in middle school, without a computer or cell phone (omg)! So much in the world has changed that we all know and have experienced, but personally as well, everyone goes through so much in 10 years.

I remember when it turned 2000. Let me paint you a picture... New Year's Eve 1999, I am 14 years old. My girlfriends and I had a sleepover at one of our friend's house, and we were all huddled together, holding hands, counting down to midnight, in anticipation of the dreaded and feared Y2K...

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.....1

Happy New Year! It's 2000! Wait? The lights didn't flicker, the world didn't end, what? Y2K? What about all the bad stuff that was supposed to happen? We were all so nervous and then nothing, and we were disappointed (haha)!

Looking back over the past 10 years, so much has changed for me, as this decade represents a huge part of my life (ages 14-24) and shaping me into who I am now and who I will become...

graduating high school, graduating college, loves and heartbreaks, gaining family members, losing family members, making new friends, losing touch with old friends, traveling to new places, first job and taste of the "real world"...

the list goes on and on.

What I do know about the past 10 years is I wouldn't have done it any other way... well I guess there are a few regrets here and there, of course, but the majority seems to be just as it should be.

I hope for the next 10 years to continue most of these things: make new friends, get married and expand my family, enjoy new personal and professional experiences.

What did the first decade of the 2000s mean to you? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

  2. Growing up - that's what the first ten years of the new millenium meant to me. I feel like I went from being a little kid to a semi-adult (on a good day). I have no clue what the future will hold; but I hope it's good!! :)

  3. Wow, you've really got me reflecting now. I can't believe how quickly the last decade has flown by - I don't like it! lol. The last decade has definitely left a mark on the world - very strange times we are living in. I hope the next 10 years crawl by a bit slower.
    Happy New Year Jaime!

  7. Great post Jaime, or great double post.

    Bring back alot of memories for me too, the decade (and year) sure did fly by - with so many happenings for all of us, and for the world around us. Time flies and technology is incredible.

    Happy New Year!

    Keep blogging, and write more! You're a star.

  10. I can't believe it's already been 10 years either! Crazy! I was in high school as well when Y2K came along. I honestly can't remember exactly where I was though...haha, I'll have to think about that...

  11. I remember the New Year's Eve in 1999 like it was yesterday. I was in 6th grade, wearing butterfly hair clips and eating chicken for dinner.
    Now 10 years later, I no longer eat meat, the butterfly clips have long retired in favor of bangs, and I'm only a semester from graduating from college. I cannot even chronicle all the change I've gone through in the last 10 years but like you said, I wouldn't have done it any other way.
    All I want for myself in the next 10 years is happiness. A nice job that I love would be ideal as well and some pretty clothes, but above all, being happy and content with what I have and who I am matters most to me.
