What Your Away Message Was In Middle School, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Who else totally misses instant messaging? If you grew up during the 2000s, you know all about how great the good old days were. Even though AIM isn't really needed anymore because of how easy texting has become, I'm sure you still get nostalgic when you remember how thrilling it felt to sit on your computer all night and message your friends. Do you feel like dredging up some real memories right now? Then let's talk about what your away message was in middle school, based on your zodiac sign.

I can think of so many reasons to miss instant messaging. You got to customize the color and font of your text, create a totally unique screen name, and wasn't it all so thrilling? What about that feeling you got when your crush signed on? I bet you were hoping they'd make the first move and message you so that you guys could flirt until way past your bedtime. What about pretending to sign on and off over and over again so that the sound of the door opening and shutting could get their attention? Don't lie, you know you played that game. But, of course, what can top the away message that you got to construct? You could make it totally creative, thought-provoking, or even passive aggressive. Hey this was middle school, remember? I bet you were just much of an angsty teen as I was.
