Hey there fellow surfer. This is my emotional roller coaster.
I'm Jenni, who runs on nostalgy. I like platform games, 90s music and Biker Mice from Mars.
FactsEvery week I told my mum I hate Hanson. Once she got me a Hanson shirt and said I remember you talked about them. I did not speak her for over a week. I never wore that shirt and hide it in my closet.
I never cared BSB either, but I got myself Aaron Carter cd. I was convinced ”I Will Be Yours” would be my wedding song.
This is what I remember doing on the internet.
Library poniesI was at the library looking for pictures of ponies, and wrote the links down. When I got home I wrote the link to the internet explorer so I could look at the ponies again.
I still remember one www-page: there were pics of falabellas and I wanted them all. My mind was blown when libraries got printers and I could print all the ponies in black and white.
Cheat codesI also wrote them down because I was not allowed to look them up at the internet. Internet was only for school work (and ponies). Sadly I couldn't write very well so often C and G got mixed up. I was super sad when the cheat code didn't work.
The blasted modem
When I got my first computer around 1997-1998, we had dial-up modem. You know that annoying little bastard that made the beep-boop sound. And when the computer finally connected to the interwebs after 15 minutes of waiting, my mum insisted to use the phone.
And it was enough time to find one pony.
Note to readers: I wasn't spoiled. I could be surfing only 15 minutes a day. It was super expensive and very slow. I also made web pages. I used Geocities and Angelfire and it breaks my heart that those services are long gone.
