      I don't think people have a fondness for the 2000s as say the 70s, 80s or 90s. The 2000s just seemed so generic compared to the other time periods. I will say that 2000 probably had to be the last good year for me.

        Since 9/11, the 2000s just fell flat.

          I am not a huge fan of the 2000's, as I was of the 1980's and 1990's, especially after 9/11. I started "falling apart" financially by the summer of 2002, where I had to sell a lot of my possessions in order to pay my bills on time and the job I had between June 2002 and March 2004 was a real nightmare...12-hour rotating shifts and low pay. The job I had between May 2004 and March 2008 was somewhat better, but I was still struggling big time to make ends meet. I would say my best year of the 2000's was between the summer of 2008 and the summer of 2009, then things started falling apart again by the fall of 2009, where my house went into foreclosure and I had to do a quick sale. My house sold in February 2010 and I moved out and into a mobile home that March. Also, from just a couple of days after 9/11, until I sold my house and moved, I had a roommate living with me who very much made my life miserable. The only positive thing I can think of about the 2000's were my friends, who I often went into the city to visit almost every weekend, which I still do today. Indeed, I would NOT want to relive the 2000's!

            I have to put myself in a similar position as Timothy, though I had equal parts highest highs (more so actually) than I did lowest lows.

            Still, I can only piece together the 2000's by the major events of my life during that decade. Some details are forever preserved in the form of home movies, but a great deal I have forgotten. I look back on that decade as bittersweet. Still, I came out of it better off. A husband, a father, financially stable... all good things. All blessings.

              The 00s for me were when I started high school so it's easy to remember when and where I was. It's the late 90s I forget:?

                Not by me since between that time I was a Sophomore in high school in 1999/2000, and in 2003 I finished my freshman year of college. And then got kicked out. 2003 was a low for me.

                  Give it a decade or two, and I'm sure the nostalgic memories of
                  the dawn of the millennium will come flowing like a raging river.

                    The problem is that the only memorable things from the early 2000s were the y2k nonsense & 9/11.

                        For me, 9/11 and the Y2K bug are among the various events that define the 2000's.

                        But we shouldn't forget Hurricane Katrina, The Boxing day Tsunami, The 7/7 London bombing, The Mumbai attacks, Flight 1549 ditching in the Hudson River, and President Obama's inauguration among other noteworthy events. I think some people will consider the 2000's as the best decade so far for their own reasons and others will not.

                        On a lighter note, I still have the Y2K Bug on my computer:

                            Obama was late 2000s not early 2000s. By the way, 2003 isn't the early 00s, it's the mid 00s.

                              If even THAT long. There's already been many 90s nostalgia articles posted on this site (even for the late 90s)

                                No, it's because the 2000s aren't nostalgic yet. Remember, the 90s were pretty "forgotten" or at least "ignored" during the 2000s..

                                  Again, Hurricane Katrina, 7/7 London and Obama are from the second half of the decade. This thread is for the early 2000s.

                                    They only appear to be "the only memorable things" because kids only remember the late 00s/early 10s and adults are nostalgic for the 90s or earlier.

                                      I often wonder what the 2000's would have been like, or how much different they would have been if 9/11 never happened...other than the fact that the twin towers in New York City would still be standing tall.

                                        For me personally, the early years of the new century were dominated by the excitement and growth of the world-wide-web. I was on the shore looking out onto a vast, unexplored realm.

                                        My journey continues and I'm not sure what I / WE may find together.

                                          Most would just like to forget about the 2000s entirely.
