It’s time for another Timeless Thoughts entry. I wasn’t sure what I was going to blog about for this round, but then my dad uncovered a photograph that I deemed it to be perfect for this link-up. Georgie and I co-host this monthly link-up, and I am hosting again for this month. If you would like to participate, you’re more than welcome to join our link-up by submitting your entry with the link-up widget located at the end of this entry! This link-up is opened for two weeks, and your entry can be about anything you find unforgettable from your past or present! It can be an object, an event, a person — anything goes — and you can have more than one thing you miss or find unforgettable.
Daddy found this photo somewhere in his office. He left it on my computer desk, and I stared at the photo in amusement. In the photo, I was around five or six, on my dad’s bed, with some ancient looking computer device with an enormous grin. I honestly have no recollection of this photographic moment. I don’t remember using that contraption. However, this photo brought many smiles because it shows that I was nerd since a kid and am proud of it! My dad influenced me to do so many of the nerdy hobbies I do today. Daddy even said to me, “You were a nerd even back then!”
I cannot remember using this device. Instead, I began to remember me being a nerd in other ways. Daddy encouraged me to use technology all my life. Prior to the Internet days, he bought old computers in the early 90s for me to play edutainment games. I remember loading up the old DOS screen and typing in the correct actions to load up the game or programme. From Oregon Trail to Math Blasters to this Barbie colouring game, I spent a good chunk of my spare time on the computer. I always had this thing for pushing buttons, so a computer was the perfect device for it. This soon led me to love video games for those involve buttons, too. Then the Internet came, and boy did that open up a lot of doors and opportunities for me!
Seeing this photo gave me a lot of warm fuzzies, and I went back in the past to think about all of the great memories I had with the technology Daddy had introduced to me. I am truly grateful to my dad for encouraging me to explore the nerdy hobbies and activities that have stayed with me today.
This concludes my post. Below are the rules, banner, and the widget for you to submit your entry; you will have two weeks to submit! I look forward to seeing all your posts, and I hope to see you all again next month at Georgie’s blog!
