AOL ?️

Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane with online nostalgia. Giving away my age here… but as a child, I remember everyone having to get off the house phone so that I can use the internet. The long-drawn-out sound of the internet running its process for me to finally log in. My generation is probably a lot more patient and this could have very well been a part of our conditioning process. Have you ever waited 10 minutes (at minimum) to connect to the online world? It was standard practice back in my day.

Did you know that AOL stands for America online?

Things have changed significantly (for the better) but it’s interesting to look back and see how far we have come along in the online world. AOL Instant Messenger was the SHIZNIC!!! My Screen Name was ‘Sparkle6969’ ? What was yours?
