Why “barbieamy” ?
barbieamy. What does it mean? Does it have something to do with Barbie dolls?
The answer is yes– but in a more sentimental way.
Nowadays, people perform various tasks with their computers. I mean, can you even imagine attempting to live without the Internet?
When I was a child ( which happens to be around the time when the Internet became a part of everyone’s lives and home computers began to pop up in people’s homes), I was faced with the task of making my first e-mail address. Naturally, I did what most kids do at that age:
Turn to my mother. (A luxury at the time — she passed away 3 years ago )
I did not know what I should choose for my e-mail address.
firstname.lastname@example.org? email@example.com? The endless possibilities.
Then, my mom suggested:
“How about firstname.lastname@example.org? You love barbie dolls and your name is Amy, so…”
Nice one, mom.
I gleamed with excitement and made my first e-mail account. (Which no longer serves any purpose after getting hacked a couple years ago)– Does hotmail even exist, now?
Now, I am in my early 20’s, living in Los Angeles, and I decided to create my own blog.
