I Choo-Choo-Choose You: Kickstarter to make Simpsons Parody Products

Originally posted on The Nostalgia Blog:
I’m a little late to the game on this KickStarter but better late then never I guess. This is a fantastic KickStarter campaign by Matthew Heister to make Simpsons Parody Products. Here are some of the products that are in the making: The category for this KickStarter is under “art” so I doubt there is real alcohol in the Vagrant’s Choice scotch or actual directions on “How to COOK for forty HUMANS” (space dust doesn’t seem to be included either) but that shouldn’t stop you from wanting all this junk!

Liebster Award

We were nominated for the Liebster Award by the wonderful Erika who runs, one of my favorite blogs, The Farm on the Hill. The Liebster Award is an award for bloggers by bloggers. The goal of the award is to encourage more connection and support within the writing community, as well as assist in discovering up and coming bloggers. The award focuses on bloggers with less than 200 followers. Though we don’t quite qualify in that regard, we’re happy to participate. When someone nominates you for the Liebster Award they ask you a series of questions. Here are the questions submitted by Erika. What originally got you blogging? Like many of my peers, I realized that adulthood didn’t come with a manual. As I wanted to share what I was learning as I learned daily lessons; thus the blog was born. What do you most enjoy about blogging? I love when bloggers comment and interact. I know we all have busy days, but it’s nice when someone takes the time to share their opinion or experiences. …

Lucky Number: 101

“I didn’t want to upset my loved ones, but I couldn’t carry this alone.” ― Julie Flygare Another milestone has been crossed. My blog officially has 101 followers now! Thank you to all my followers and readers. I love you all. I truly didn’t expect this blog to even get one follower or last an entire year. It has done that and more. This blog has become a safe place of sorts for me. There is no other place that I feel that I can comfortably describe how I’m feeling and/or experiencing. That’s both pathetic and comforting. Comforting because I have this blog and pathetic because I don’t have anyone or anything else that I can turn to when I’m in distress. And I want that. I want a rock, someone or something that I can lean on when I’m too weak to hold myself up and for the time being this blog has somewhat filled that role. Again, thank you all. Thank you for sticking with me…

No One Is Rooting For You

Originally posted on A Couple Talks:
Is humanity inherently good or bad? Where does morality come from? Are certain values innate or learned? Are some individuals naturally friendly and kind-hearted while others are born to be shitheads? I think about these things from time to time. I’ve developed the general belief that no one is rooting for you. If you have at least one person in this world that truly and genuinely supports you and wants your dreams to come true with no strings attached then you should consider yourself fortunate. But for the other 99% of the people you encounter in life, let me break the news to you, they are not rooting for you to succeed. Hell, I’m not rooting for you. Do you think I want your blog to blow up? Do you really think I want you to have more readers than we do? Recently, I decided to dive into the world of photography. Why? Obviously because there’s not enough Asian photographers out there. It only took a day or two before I…

Life Lessons You Should’ve Learned from Playing Dodgeball

There are many life lessons to take away from childhood games… Twister taught strategy. Bop it! taught the importance of paying attention. It even demonstrated how things in life can go by quickly, and you may lose an opportunity to “win” if you don’t pay attention.  Monopoly taught one of the many ways the rich get rich (and how to alienate friends). Then there’s dodgeball. I think you see where I’m going with this. If not, sit back, relax, and read. The game of dodgeball is like opportunities. There are three lessons to take away from dodgeball: 1. The opposition OR life obstacles In life we all encounter “haters,” people who try to get ahead by holding you back (or getting you out), or who just want to keep you down so they can stay in the game. These people (and life) with throw many obstacles your way. Then there are the people who are… 2. Your teammates OR your support system These are the people who are on your side. They want to see you succeed …
