10 things that turn 10 in 2017 | Blogmas Day 19

The year turning to 2017 is going to hit me hard with nostalgia. It's hard to believe that it will hit 10 years since I started secondary school - 2007 honestly feels like it was only a year or two ago. I couldn't fathom that some of these things were released a decade ago, so I thought I'd share some of the most shocking.

1. These catchy songs

Shut Up And Drive and Umbrella by Rihanna. Big Girls Don't Cry by Fergie. Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne. Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's. Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood. Thnks Fr Th Mmrs by Fall Out Boy. The list is endless, but 2007 was a great year for music.

2. Some great films

Again, 2007 was a fantastic year for films. Ratatouille, Enchanted, Bridge to Terabithia, Hairspray, Blades of Glory, The Simpsons Movie and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix all came out a decade ago. 

3. The iPhone

A decade ago, the first, revolutionary iPhone was released. In 2016, the iPhone hit over a billion sales. It's difficult to comprehend that it was released a mere 10 years ago and today, it's a huge part of so many people's day-to-day lives.

4. Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Apparently, this show was first aired in 2007. So, happy birthday Kim K and co. TV series that also began in 2007 include Gossip Girl and Mad Men.

5. Tumblr

Every hipster's favourite social media platform was created in 2007, giving us a decade of memes and an entryway into mainstream blogging.

6. Pokemon Pearl and Diamond

This game was the inspiration behind this post. Recently, I've started re-playing Pokemon Pearl and I can't believe that Pokemon Gen 4 came out so long ago.

7. Lots of other great games

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Halo 3, Assassin's Creed and Tomb Raider: Anniversary are amongst the games that were released in 2007, which seemed to be a particularly fantastic year for gaming sequels.

8. Some viral videos that are still well-known today

Leave Britney Alone and Charlie Bit My Finger both turn 10 in 2017.

9. The anniversaries of some celebrity deaths

Anna Nicole Smith, Pavarotti and many others unfortunately passed away in 2007. 2017 also marks 10 years since the horrific Chris Benoit murder / suicide.

10. Scooch representing Great Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest

One of the most iconic Eurovision entries of all time. Scooch may have placed 22nd out of 24 contestants, but they remain legendary with their song "Flying the Flag".

What are some of your most memorable parts of 2007?
