Doing all your work in scented gel pens/bubble writing.

Apparently adults are not allowed to fill in tax forms in a yellow banana-scented gel pen. Who knew.

2. Filling PowerPoint presentations with endless animations and Word Art.

Filling PowerPoint presentations with endless animations and Word Art.

Being a master of custom animation was VERY cool in year 6, but putting all those effects on a presentation now just makes people feel ill.

3. Owning an extensive sticker collection that you guarded with your life.

Nobody bring this back.

5. Rolling your skirt up.

Rolling your skirt up.

There was nothing more lame than being the one girl who didn’t roll their skirt up at school. Now you could just, you know, buy a short skirt.

6. Owning a tiny Nike Just Do it bag.

Go to a job interview with all the members of My Chemical Romance written on your backpack in biro and you might not get hired.

Not very practical gym bags as they tend to fall apart.

10. Drawing on people you sit next to in biro because you’re bored.

Drawing on your work colleagues is apparently frowned upon.

11. Covering everything you own in mini badges.

Covering everything you own in mini badges.

It’s kind of a pain to wash things when they’re covered in badges.

12. Graffitiing on toilet cubicle walls.

Graffitiing on toilet cubicle walls.

“Lads, I just wrote ‘the manager is a twat’ on the bathroom wall!”

“Nice one, Steve, way to make the cleaner’s life harder.”

13. Owning a huge Nokia 3310.

Owning a huge Nokia 3310.

Then: the height of fashionable technology. Now: used by your dad, who refuses to get a new phone.

14. Being able to do skateboarding tricks.

Being able to do skateboarding tricks.

Unless it’s your actual job or something, it’s not a skill that’s going to come up much in your day-to-day life.

15. Sitting on the back row of the bus.

You just kind of get a bit carsick really.

16. Wearing Livestrong bands.

Awkward.

And always getting confused about what colour meant what. Trying to immediately advertise how many lacklustre handjobs you’ve given is just kind of lame as an adult.

18. Wearing massive Baby G watches.

Wearing massive Baby G watches.

Why did they need to be so shock resistant? What were people doing with them?

19. Cutting holes for your thumbs in your school jumper.

Why. Why was this cool?

20. Owning light-up shoes.

These would actually be quite good for running at night, to be fair.

21. Wearing Lynx body spray.

Essentially woman repellant.

22. Writing in Parker Pen.

Writing in Parker Pen.

Writing in a fountain pen as an adult just makes you look like a pretentious bellend.

23. Drawing on the rubber of your Converse.

Drawing on the rubber of your Converse.

Bonus points if you wrote meaningful emo song lyrics on them.

24. Writing Yes/No on an eraser and using it to make important life decisions.

Playing the eraser game in Chen never gets old @McCanceZ @David_Burton18 #yes #no #areyougay #hahaha
