by 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.
Rapidly pressing SPACE + ENTER as soon as your parents or a teacher is in sight.
Using your favourite lyrics as your personal message.
Signing in and out of MSN to attract the attention of someone you like.
Asking someone what their email was instead of their phone number.
Laughing at that one guy who uses Yahoo! Messenger. What a weirdo.
Asking your friend if someone else was online to check if they had blocked you.
Getting annoyed when someone used the same font & colour combo as you.
“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.
Using a symbol in your screen name to appear at the top of everyone’s contacts list.
