This past week, by a miracle (and randomly), I figured out my old Neopets account and was able to log in! I had a blast exploring what felt like a treasure trove of memories. It was also really cool to see how far we’ve come web development-wise. Neopets for many people, including me, was such a great place to learn and experiment on the internet with code and art. It made me happy to still see it running, even though it wasn’t the most state-of-the-art corner of the internet anymore.
