MSN Messenger | Nostalgic Memoriesby Dylan - first posted June 3, 2015

I grew up in the 90’s and was a daily user of MSN Messenger. I recently changed my phone’s notification to the sound MSN Messenger made when you got a new IM. The sound alone hurled me back to a simpler time. A time when Napster reigned (and mistitled songs were a real problem) and boy bands roamed the earth.

When you see your crush sign in but you wait at least ten minutes before starting a conversation so you don’t look too interested.

2

Rapidly pressing SPACE + ENTER as soon as your parents or a teacher is in sight.

3

Using your favourite lyrics as your personal message.

4

Signing in and out of MSN to attract the attention of someone you like.

5

Asking someone what their email was instead of their phone number.

6

Laughing at that one guy who uses Yahoo! Messenger. What a weirdo.

7

Asking your friend if someone else was online to check if they had blocked you.

8

Getting annoyed when someone used the same font & colour combo as you.

9

“Send me that song please”

When you got a new computer or re-installed MSN and you had to ask all your friends for emoticons.
