Online Personal Profiles: Then vs. Now

Back when MySpace generation 1 was all the rage and your popularity depended on how many people’s Top 8 you appeared on, making an online profile was much more easier. Now it seems so complex, presumptuous, too thought out. Or maybe it’s just because I was like 10 years younger back then… okay maybe like 6 years younger.

Maybe some things never change, and I am forever destined to be a goof. Also, I always used to be tan when I lived in CA.
Cringe. Maybe some things never change, and I am forever destined to be a goof. Also, I always used to be tan when I lived in CA.

Username:

Then: /likeomigod
Now: /madeleine.tabing

Religion:

Then: Catholic
Now: Well, I grew up Catholic, I’ve been thinking about Kabalah, and Buddhism, so I’d call myself an Atheist, naturally.

Sign: 

Then: Capricorn
Now: Capricorn. But I identify more with Saggitarius when Jupiter reaches its fifth moon usually.

Job/Occupation:

Then: Student
Now: student / intern / unemployed / help?!

About Me:

Then: I’m kewl. I like chillin with friends, hanging out, living my lif3! (Insert inspirational quote probably from Marilyn Monroe or someone, here)
Now: I like to find old vintage things. Listen to vinyls. I’m a very complex person. I will try to show this by a very ambiguously small amount of information here.

Interests:

Then: Dancing, singing, living like there’s no 2morrow! ♥ *~*~*~*~*
Now: Reading, writing poetry, painting landscapes.

Music:

Then: OMG WHERE DO I START! B*Witched, Spice Girls, ATeens, Backstreet Boys, NSync, Britney Spears, Avril Lavine.
Now: a band you never heard of, a band that sounds like a viral disease, a hipster ironic band, indie band, indie band, another band you’ve never heard of, The Beatles, a band that sounds like another band. Obviously the more obscure this section is, the more interesting you presumably will be.

Movies:

Then: A Walk To Remember. Best movie of all time!!!!
Now: Any movie by Baz Luhrmann. Have you seen the previews for Great Gatsby? I probably won’t watch it though…movies ALWAYS ruin the books.

5 Things You Couldn’t Live Without:

Then: my family & friendz, mp3, food, dog, clothes
Now: my iPod, my iPhone, my iPad, my MacBook, my family.

How to Contact Me:

Then: sportqt926@yahoo.com
Now: firstnamelastname@gmail.com

Also, back then you could pimp your profile with MySpACE LaYoutZ and sparkly thangs, and even add a song that exemplifies your great personality!

Oh dear lord. Thank goodness for evolution. But admit it, youre a bit #nostalgic too.

Go ahead. I dare you to stalk your old self via Myspace. Although, you’ll probably have to login. Forgot your password? Just try to remember your crush 5+ years ago, and theyre favorite number/color. Any combo will most likely work.
