The 2000s were undeniably messy from top to bottom. From gaucho pants to unforgiving low ponytails, kids in the 2000s had it all. The Lizzie McGuire Movie release may have been the greatest event of the decade, but that doesn’t mean friendships weren’t thriving. In fact, the 2000s were a dope decade for friendship — we had all sorts of new communication options, and our tech was both functional and poppin’.
