Re-Organizing My Blog

Today I was inspired to finally wade through all the tags on my blog (some leftover from when I brought this blog over here from Squarespace three years ago!). I cleaned them up considerably, narrowing things down to 20 tags (which you can now find both in the sidebar and in the footer). Should make browsing my blog easier for both me and you! ;)

It was pretty interesting going back through my blog though. I skimmed through every... single... post. (Yes, it took forever). Even way back before I applied for school, I was dreaming about being creative, traveling, and doing something more with my life than answering phones all day. If my self from three years ago could only see me now!! ;)

Also in conjunction with the tag revamp, I completely redesigning my blog. (Yes, again). I suppose I should be designing my school projects instead, but we all need a day of procrastination now and then, right?


  1. The new layout looks great! I so need to do some reorganization on my blog... My categories/tags are a total mess.

  2. I always love your blog layouts. You're so talented! Hope you're doing well...when do you move to LA again?

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 …
