Tonight turned out to be really nice, I read a lot of Yeats’s poetry and some of Oscar Wilde’s stuff trying to pick a poem to read for class. I haven’t decided but just after reading for a few hours I feel really at peace now. Plus I started watching Wolf Children and I honestly wish I could curl up and finish it in my bed instead of these essays but I’ll save that for thursday night. I’m so glad I took a lit class this semester. I love being forced to keep reading during the school year. I need that structure don’t let me slack off. and there’s a lot here I really loved that I’d have never just picked up on my own. I know I won’t finish everything in time for class tomorrow, and,….I guess that’s ok. I’m not sure how I’ll feel about it in the morning. So I’m just going to learn what I can, be productive as possible until the deadline, and not worry about it otherwise.

"AIM was also pretty much the start of social media. There was a lot of exhibitionism. Away messages were the peak example of this. Sometimes the away message you left up for nine hours was more important than any conversation you had that day. It was the original flex. It was the original tweet. You wanted to let people know that you had an awesome life. Away messages were basically a way to say, “Your lame ass is on the computer but I’m out here getting it.” You left away messages like that when you could. You also found out about fun stuff other people were doing via away messages and felt left out."

-

Remember When AIM Was The Greatest Thing Ever? by Ernest Baker (via deadthehype)

or in my case, we showcased just how nerdy we were. or how much work we had to do. but we’d violate an away message for those special people

(via str8nochaser)

my profile was poppin. remember putting up away messages even when you weren’t away to make it look like you were doing shit? remember going invisible so you could ignore motherfuckers.

All of this is important

aim is still the greatest thing shut up and give me ur screen names
