About Blogging

(found this awesome survey over on Wonder Forest)

1. I started my blog because: 
I think better with writing than with speaking. For years I kept a written diary. Now with the advent of blogging, this has quickly become my brain's default way of processing life.  

2. One thing I love seeing on other blogs are:
When bloggers participate in a fun blog meme or survey (like this one!) that shows off their personality.

3. Something I love about blogging:
Having a little place of my own on the internet. It's fun to think of fun posts and to have a place to share ideas and pictures that I'm fascinated with. I also love meeting other women who think like me &/or are more creative than me and can inspire me to be a greater version of myself!

4. A favorite blog post of mine:
My latest "About Me" post is pretty fun. I like doing those every now and then to introduce myself to new readers.

5. Something my friends in real life know about me that I've never before mentioned on my blog: 
I'm actually really, really quiet. I know I "talk" a lot online, but in real life I tend to be an observer and daydreamer.

6. My new favorite blogs to read are:
Always a fan of: Una Bella Vita - it is literally the only blog I haven't instantly deleted due to auto-playing music. Her beautiful and inspirational style makes up for any minor annoyance that auto-playing brings.

7. Some things I tend to avoid doing on my blog are:
I really try to avoid being negative on my blog. Sometimes I can't help it, but I find that when I allow myself to give in to my negative mood it only ends up fostering it further instead of getting it out of my system.

What about you? If you do this survey, I'd love to hear about it! :)


  1. I love your blogging! I also think I communicate better in writing than in real life. How funny!

  2. Great blog! I really appreciate that you try to keep your posts positive and upbeat! :)

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...

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. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

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 …

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?
