It's been 27 years since that May morning when I posted my Apgar score. The world has turned, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased, and we've gone from 2400 baud and BBSes to broadband and the wonders of Bookface. Hm, maybe that's too cynical.
A year ago, I had just finished graduate school and was looking forward to working with the utility holding company whose name you know all too well.
Five years ago, I had just finished my penultimate year at John Carroll University and was looking forward to a summer of physics research and fretting about long-term employment prospects. I was also drawing stupid furry fanservice for chipheads, since I had yet to learn better. Things got interesting a few months later...
Ten years ago, I was finishing my junior year of high school and was a newbie on DeviantArt. Tankaa didn't exist yet! My weekends were full of Dungeons & Dragons...I really miss that era.
Fifteen years ago, the Nineties might have lapsed on the calendar but we were still in those shiny happy years.
Twenty years ago, I was in my last month of first grade. The N64 was on the seemingly distant horizon, and so were the stars.
Twenty-five years ago, things fade into the static-filled haze of early memories, with my parents voices, the noise of a vacuum cleaner, and the disco beats of "The Happiest Street in the World." (It's either that or the musique concrete "Portrait D'un Robot.")
