It was near summer of 1999 when I had my first Yahoo mail account. Medyo excited ako sa pag-type ko ng username ko so instead of nerudani, which was supposed to be a portmanteau of "neruda" (of my fave poet pablo neruda) and "danny" or "dani," i mistyped it to narudani. Why didn't I edit it? Ewan ko.
8 years old na yung e-mail account ko so I'm not surprised na sobrang dami na ng mga spam e-mails sa inbox ko. I realized too that going back to my old mails is like traveling back in time. I get to recall past events, remember old friends, and read revelations that were so BIG DEAL during that time.
