The Top 9 Posts of May

June is happily marching along. We even had sun here this week in Oregon! I'm actually one of those odd people who love the rain, but even I appreciate a warm, sunny day every now and then. ;)

Today I bring you the top 9 posts of May, selected based on which posts you have viewed the most. So look back, remember the month, or just catch up with what you've missed.

Also, I want to take this time to encourage you to subscribe, if you haven't already. Subscribing is a great way to help you stay up-to-date with what's going on in the blog, and is also a great way to let the blogger (me!) know that you appreciate what I write.

Feel free, also, to follow me on Twitter or Facebook. I love interacting with my readers, and I especially love the people I've genuinely connected with through my blog. It's so great to find like-minded people online, people with whom I'd probably be friends with if we lived closer together.

So yeah... I'll stop talking now and just let you take a look back at May's top posts!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that.

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
