I remember spending hours browsing websites looking for the perfect quotes to put in my profile. I would then spend even more time manipulating the fonts, adding colors, and links to my "subprofile" or "webshots".
There were also the days spent analyzing your crush's away messages: is he talking about me? is it another girl? what does it mean?!
Or, if you really had something on your mind, you just had to put it up as an away message. There was always the mysterious and obnoxious 'blank' away message. That one always got me.
I had so many saved away messages listed under categories like lyrics, randoms, quotes, tv, greys, funny, or saved. AIM was the reason I never got any work done in college. I constantly needed to be on my computer chatting and editing.
I now see twitter as the new form of AIM, and that's probably why I enjoy twitter so much. It takes me back...
like are u serious? honestly? don't. shower then sleep. text the cell if u care I guess
