I was a kid in like 5th grade. My dad had an old friend, from college or high school, and his family come over for July 4th. They had a daughter who was a lot older than me. Maybe she was in college? It was 2005 I think. Neopets was made for college students right? Haha well I'm in college now and still playing. So anyways yeah I played Neopets a lot back then and I had a friend in elementary/middle school who also played. She loved Blumaroo's but her account has since been frozen . I'm not sure if she ever got into cheating or anything.
I used to be poor and have no idea how to do anything. I remember getting packs of Neopets cards and entering the codes. I also got the plushies from McDonalds happy meals. I attended a summer class thing that taught HTML. It was for younger kids and we learned really basic things. Near the end the two college students teaching it asked if anyone played Neopets. They divided their neopoints up and give it to us. That was pretty awesome to me back then and I got about 1 million. I was stuck around that number until last year when I discovered Neocodex! With the score sender I built up some capital. Then I started ABing and I have around 3 million now. I'm sure that's not a lot compared to the hardcore ABers .
I stopped playing around when summer break started last year. I just started playing again right before Thanksgiving and visited the forums again. So I'm back for now and it's fun to hang out with you people.
While writing this, wow nostalgia. I love the feeling of finding old memories. I can't wait to read some of your stories.
