Holy shit you're 22 Tim? Let's go get you a fucking spot at the retirement home. Jesus Christ
I think we had internet in 2001 or 2002 I'm not sure, but I don't think I used it used it. I started really using the computer probably in 2003 or 2004 on the Windows 98 Compaq with a 3gb hard drive. This was back in the day when Yahoo had THE BEST chat boards. My first taste of really using the internet is kind of a sad story.
I met this girl named Mena who lived in California. She was obviously hispanic and I older than me, 17 or 16. I lied and said I was 15 or 16 (I was 14 or 15 at the time depending on whether this was 2003-4) because I didn't want her not to think I was immature. haha We kind of "fell in love" or at least were beginning to I guess, all through just chatting on yahoo chat, email and I think msn chat. (Which my 98' could barley run mind you.) I sent her one picture of me by email which at the time was crazy new technology. It was in front of Citizen's Bank Park at night right around it first opened. I eventually thought she was loosing interest in me because it took her a day or two to email me back at times but in hindsight I think I was just too impatient. Either way I wrote her one last email telling her my real age and goodbye. A few days later my 98' died and had no computer or internet until like a year or so latter depending on the date again. When I did get my iMac G5 in Jan. of 2005 I forgot all the login information and account names to all my early internet usage. The rest was history, for a few months latter I made a PD account and then made God's and forced him to post.
I have since forgotten all but a few details about Mena that could even remotely "find" her again and have been doing so since 2005. All has come up short thus far and I will most likely never hear from her again. I still from time to time though google the remaining memories I have of her in hopes that she will pop up on the search results and thus finally enabling me to say I am sorry for acting like such a fool.
Your an absolutely wonderful man, any girl that is yours is lucky and I know that from personal experience. ~KMT
