    It was my first year of university in Victoria, B.C. Was away from my parents for the first time on my own and was loving it. Lived in a crack-house for a month-and-a-half(didn't love that so much), then moved into a beautiful house. Discovered raving and a lot of recreational drugs. Didn't go to school very much that year, and had to learn how to trust people again.

    Some people here are so young...I think I was getting cold feet about my impending wedding in September 1996.

    My sister was born. I loved Power Rangers. I was super sick. I had my first girlfriend (and only one ever).


    Good times, good times.

    The year I finished high school. And when Beast Wars made its Canadian debut in late August of that year.

    I was also big on Star Trek (DS9 and Voyager) and Babylon 5.

    In September 1996 I was a Senior in high school, probably prepping for the ACT and finding out that if I wanted to, I could graduate in January since I will have the necessary credits at that point.

    I was Head Usher, Captain of the Bass Drums for the marching band, had about a million friends, and was part of the biggest clique in the school.

    Hahahahaahah, dial up sucked so much ass, it's not even funny to shit about. Well, almost.

    I don't think I played around with html or anything until Neopets came into existence, but that would've been in like 2001 or something, as I was at least a year late to the party.

    ...The lame yuppies have conquered the downtown...but from secret staging grounds in that cool coffee shop by the closed-down bus terminal, the valiant Generation X prepares to retake their homeworld.

    Then they decided it wasn't worth the effort, and watched Friends instead.

    I was a freshman in college, but I watched X-files. :)
