Hey, blog. It’s really good to see you. I thought I’d do a nice, easy tag today. You may or may not know that I just got back from Disney World, where my brother got married. It was magical and wonderful and phantasmagorical, but now I’m back in the real world, and naturally, because of travel and lack of sleep and adjusting back and forth to cold weather, I am ill. But that’s ok because it was seriously one of the best trips of my life and any cold is well worth it.

Anyway, a tag.

The Blogger Aesthetic Award

Another huge thanks to the Orang-utan Librarian for tagging me in the Blogger Aesthetic Award! This is a super fun tag cause it lets you play around with images and hopefully lets your followers get to know you in a new, creative way! Very excited for this one! Here are da rules and some tips:

The Rules:

  • Collect any number of images that you feel represent you as a person—your personality, aspirations, favourite things, anything at all that makes you you.
  • Put your chosen images together into a collage of whatever size and shape you find pleasing.
  • Share your masterpiece with everyone, in all the places.
  • Maybe nominate other bloggers as a way to tell them, “Hey, you, I think you’re awesome, and we should celebrate that awesomeness.”

The Nostalgia Tag

I was tagged by my all-time favorite primate, The Orang-utan Librarian to do the Nostalgia Tag! I’m a pretty nostalgic person, so I’m excited to do this tag and take a look back at the things I loved as a kid. Off we go!

What are some of the tv shows you remember watching?

I was a total Nickelodeon kid. My favorites were Hey Arnold and Spongebob Squarepants (the old Spongebob, like 1999-2003. None of the new crap). I also loved me some Rugrats. And departing from Nickelodeon, Saturday mornings were for Recess on ABC.
