Because I’m a slacker who doesn’t keep up with her own blog series I am always pleased when other people write my posts for me. It also helps when these events coincide with the exact same thing that I was doing at the time.
In 1999 I was 19 years old and in my second year at a small Texas college. I remember the hoopla surrounding the millennial new year celebration and the fear that it inspired in the armageddonists. Will the Y2K bug revert the world’s computers to 1900 and effectively stop commerce, business, and life itself? Some people stockpiled supplies in fear of the end times as the world prepared to usher in the new millennium. I, on the other hand, was ready to party it up just in case there was no tomorrow.
