If I had to pick my favorite thing about the Disney Channel ever, it would be Lizzie McGuire, hands down. While the Disney Channel (not to be confused with Disney in general) gave me a lot of seriously amazing things to watch, my number one favorite has always been, and probably always will be, Lizzie McGuire.
Why? Um, I don’t know, probably because it was the best show ever? In all seriousness though, this show was incredibly easy to relate to. It was simple and normal – nothing crazy ever happened and every character was like someone you knew in real life. We were all Lizzie at some point in our lives. Plus, Hilary Duff is my spirit animal.
Obviously, I learned a lot from one of my fave shows ever – and I’m sure you did too. Here are 20 things Lizzie McGuire taught me that have stuck with me for life – GIF form:
How to talk to my parents when they’re being annoying.
Life will always be a mystery… pretty deep, Lizzie.
Repeating outfits is not an option.
No matter how much you love your friends, they kind of stink sometimes.
Gender roles are not always fair. Le sigh.
Friends fight, but it’s all good.
The friend zone exists. Oh man, it exists.
Mean words can’t tear me down. YEAH, MIRANDA!
Being popular is no big deal.
When eating carbs is acceptable.
Some of us just aren’t meant to do math. Okay, Mr. Zuar? OKAY?!
That BFF might not always mean BFF… aw, that one’s sad.
Expectations are kind of the worst.
No matter how many clothes you have, you still have NOTHING to wear sometimes.
How to fall gracefully.
Doing this is totally acceptable.
Bras change lives.
