my precious babushka babies collection continues to grow
Is it just me or does everyone hate their first name as a kid and just ends up making peace with it as an adult???
this dream town had the coziest room I’ve ever seen HANDS DOWN!
Hey that’s my house…crazy randomly seeing it on the acnl tag. Glad you enjoyed it!
My dream address is 4100-2479-0291 if you want to visit. Though if you want to explore this room you should do that soon because the next time I update my living room will have spring stuff out instead!
Stories I’ve told Sam while we were eating dinner:
1. One time I was in a Duane Reade at midnight and there was an elderly gentleman inside ranting on and on about recycling being a “jewish conspiracy”.
2. During my freshman year of high school one of my classmates ran away from home. He was eventually found in another classmate’s closet. He had actually been living intermittently in the closet for weeks, and was only found out when the second classmate finally realized the marijuana smoke that occasionally permeated his house wasn’t from his grandma toking up.
In 2004 I was a freshman in high school and fairly active on LiveJournal. At the time these things called “rating communities” were popular. “Ratings communities” were, well, communities where you would fill out a questionnaire and then the communities members would rate you and decide if you could join the community or not. After you joined you could rate other applicants and see and make friends-only posts about whatever the community’s topic was. Looking back on it I have no idea why they existed, why they were popular, or why I was in one, but I was.
I only vaguely remember the theme of the ratings community I was in was—I think it was for nerds, but cool nerds—and what the non-application posts were like—I remember selfies and people giving/seeking advice and book recommendations and funny anecdotes—but none of those things are important to this story. What is important was that the community was made up primarily of high-school-aged girls, and one of few outliers was a 19-year-old college freshman guy, who happened to be one of the most active and well-liked members of the community. I do not remember his name, so I’ll call him “Tom”.
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just ones that have touched you. Then tag ten other folks etc. etc. you all know how this goes.

I think the text of this meme implies that you aren’t supposed to talk at length why you choose each title but I don’t care, I did it anyways and ended up writing a lot about my feelings about books that have been formative to my artistic development (thus, the text of this meme is behind a read-more to save your dashboard). I was tagged by sodiumlamps and I’m too awkward & shy to tag anyone else, but please, if you want to do this meme, do so, I’d love to see your lists!
