The High-tech Mullet Flashback

The other day, we were visiting my dad and I saw this picture on his dining room table. Turns out, he was going through some old letters and pictures and discovered this gem. A friend of mine took this photo as part of a classroom walk-around project for his photography class. I was sitting in a computer programming class having loads of fun programming (can't you tell). My mom wanted me to go into the computer field back then because it was the new thing. After taking Fortran and Basic, I decided that I would rather dig graves than do this type of work (no offense to the computer programmers or grave diggers out there). So, I proudly sport my quasi-mullet look while banging away on the latest and greatest technology at the time...the 286. This should definitely give my age away. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Wow, I like the long hair. :) It's like Bon Jovi! hehehe My husband will probably like this picture coz he likes programming at that time too. But he graduated college in Mathematics. But he returned being a Computer programmer. He tells me how hard his job is, being in the box all day facing problems in the computer. lol. At least, he has a stable job though.
