Born in 1994, I remember growing up in the nineties. I remember all the hype over something called a “new millennium”, the styles that we mimic today at halloween, and of course, the tv shows.

As an avid television watcher today, I know that what’s on Nickelodeon and Disney for kids works. They’re entertained, and parents spend obscene amounts of money purchasing memorabilia for their children. Same as always. But something is missing. On Disney, you basically have to be a performer to get a show. While Nickelodeon is still entertaining,  the shows have gotten too similar in certain ways. Below is a list of reasons why 90’s/Early 00’s Television is better for kids at such an important developmental stage in their lives.

I’m back!

I know it’s been a very long while since I last posted, but good news is I now have more things to write about! This post is going to be sectioned off based on topics, so feel free to read those that interest you.

Let’s go fly a kite

(me testing out if I can put pictures in :D)

One of the neatest things about the beach that I went to, Ocean City, MD, is that right off the boardwalk on the sand are dozens of kites. Sure, they’re advertisement for the stores, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t cool to see giant fish or cubes in pretty colors floating around. however, the downside is that if you’re running on the sand and you don’t see the strings holding the kites up, you can trip. Or so I’ve heard…

We’ve all read books that we find entrancing. From a dystopia like The Hunger Games, to a romance like Jane Erye, to anything by Stephen King. And in every book, there’s a character that pulls at the heartstrings a little more than the others. These are usually the ones fan’s become obsessed with: continually drawing the fictional person and themselves, talking about how attractive they are (though no picture has been provided), imaging what would happen if they met them. You know, stalker fan girl/fan boy stuff.

I myself am known to be “devoted” to certain characters when a new book in my favorite series comes out.

When friends have parties, and someone whips out a camera, it is inevitable that pictures will be taken. You group together, arms around each other, and the photographer simply states: “Say cheese!”.

Cheese. CHEESE? Cheese.

My first blog post. I have always wanted a blog, though I’m not quite sure why. And now that I’m off to college soon, what better way to communicate about things in my life than with a blog? I can describe things better than on Facebook, I have many more words than Twitter, and, honestly, sometimes I just need to rant.

I can’t say what exactly I’ll be posting about. It could range from a “day in the life” posts to me geeking out about a television show/movie/book series, as I am often known to do. I hope to entertain everyone with my antics, as most already find enjoyment from my life as is.

So, that’s about it. Nothing to report, but I’m sure I’ll find something to talk about for my next post. This was just sort of an introduction.

Live long and prosper, as there is much more to come!
