It all started with couch potato activities last Tuesday when I came home after a nice dinner. Yes, couch potato activities can be very good for your creativity. Since I use Snapchat only for the filters, I decided to check if there were some new filters added that day. After chuckling about a hilarious filter, I decided to try out the “face swap with another picture” option. It’s actually a filter that I always skip. But not anymore. I finally understand the “hype” of this filter.
Another Vintage meets Present episode! Today, I have a special ode to the nowadays digital (GIFS) era. If you look at my social media channels, it’s fair to say that I really like social media. If you look back on my social networks journey, then it’s fair to say that I am an early adopter of social networks. Very Present indeed. These days it’s easier than ever to make the past come alive. How? Read along:
There is something about the introduction tune of historical videos and news bulletins. It always has this typical very nostalgic sound and it makes me anxious for the rest of the newsbulletin. It gives me that you-don’t-want-to-miss-this feeling. I have the same with introduction tunes of Old Hollywood movies. I love it. That’s why I’m always intrigued whenever I see old (news) videoclips. You can imagine that I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that Vintage meets Present was about to be taken literally.

Ready for another historical ride? This time, I’m taking you on a personal ride. Join me on my trip to social networks memory lane. It’s gonna be a long one, but I promise it will be worth it.
Let’s go back to the millennium. That’s when it all started for me. MSN Messenger had just arrived. People who were in their puberty years in the early 2000s will now experience a nostalgic moment. For those of you who don’t know what MSN is. I’m just taking a moment to feel kinda old right now.
