Twitter goes crazy over diary entry for woman in eighth grade

A millennial shared an excerpt from her eighth grade journal, and people love it. Writer Lindsay Zoladz discovered an old diary entry from November 13, 2000. Although brief, it summarized just about everything you need to know about youth culture in the first year of the new millennium. Zoladz’s young self wrote: “Today was just one of those Fred Drust sings about. Everything went wrong that possibly could.” Of course, the writer was referring to Limp Bizkit’s 2000 single “Break Stuff”. “It’s just one of those days you don’t wanna wake up / It’s all fucked up, everyone sucks.” “You don’t really know why, but you want to justify / rip someone’s head off,” Durst sings. Zoladz’s highly relevant tweet garnered over 94,000 likes on Twitter. “The first sentence hit hard. So understandable then and now,” someone commented. To the uninitiated, Limp Bizkit was a “nu metal” or rap-rock band that sold 40 million records worldwide in the late 1990s and early 2000s. However, much like Nickelback, the group became the butt of the joke thanks to their obscene words, their frat-boy attitude and their cultural appropriation. Meanwhile, frontman Durst says he doesn’t even like his own music anymore.
