The long, flowing locks. The multi-colored ’90s shirts. The awkward dancing. SO ENTICING.

No binder was safe from this symbol. Nor were your text books – or even your own skin.

2. You would wear several necklaces at once because that was totally Taylor’s thing and made you feel closer to him as a person.

And it was so necessary to have EVERY SINGLE ISSUE.

And to fill ALL of your wall space with the posters.

4. You were 100% prepared for Tulsa, Oklahoma, to be the booming metropolis you were going to spend the rest of your life in.

6. And after seeing that commercial, your parents let you eat nothing but Eggo waffles for breakfast, just so you could get the t-shirt.

You screamed together. You cried together. You had confusing pre-teen sexual fantasies together.

20. Christmas is not the same without forcing your entire family to listen to Snowed In.

21. These two VHS tapes were your most important possessions. If anything happened to them you literally would have died. DIED.

Thank you for making our teenage years amazing, Hanson.

And for continuing to make brilliant music, despite crushing all of our dreams and not marrying us.
