BACK IN 2009, in the early days of Facebook, a craze swept the land. This craze was called Farmville.
A simple farm simulation game, it consumed people’s lives. Our timelines were filled with ‘farmers’ celebrating the harvest of virtual crops and asking others to adopt their cows. It was a heady time, and we all did things we weren’t proud of. Like these.
If it meant awaking at 7am to harvest squash that would wither and die by 7.10am, so be it. If it required checking in whilst at the pub, then it was done!
And spent copious amounts of time arranging and rearranging your livestock
That pink cow man. That’s what you wanted.
You begged your friends to add you as a neighbour
More neighbours = more gifts. More gifts = fancier farm = THE DREAM.
You fired out requests like there was no tomorrow
You needed someone to donate three pumpkins so you could build your barn and you didn’t care how annoying it made you look.
You thought about spending actual money on it at least once
The things you could do! Everyone would be so jealous.
And posted mortifying statuses like these
Would you be WELL.
Now Timehop/Facebook’s ‘On This Day’ feature is the only proof of your obsession.
But some say your farm lives on, even after you leave it
Could this be true?
k but I literally just opened up farmville and my farm is still fucking lit from 2009 so this is how I'm spending my Friday night ?

Look at it there. You’d almost be tempted… No. NEVER AGAIN.
