Well hello! Welcome to post #2 of 2021! I’ve been crafting ideas and drafts of future posts for this blog, but I felt compelled to revisit past posts. I’ve gone back and forth on whether I should archive (i.e. remove) some posts from public view if it doesn’t fit in with how I want to craft this blog for the future. For now, I’ve decided to leave things be.
Below are posts that I especially enjoyed crafting. My fellow readers, if you have the time, I invite you to read (or re-read) some of the entries below.
Let me know if you’d like to see any of these topics revisited in 2021/2022. Also, don’t be shy about leaving comments in any of these older posts, especially if you haven’t read these until now!
Merging Two of My Favorite Things in One Post: Music and Football
CBS, Fox, NBC or the Mouse House: Who Has the Best NFL Theme Music?: Posted before the start of the NFL 2012/2013 regular season, I evaluate NFL theme music among the 4 broadcast networks. Potential for an update, as Carrie Underwood’s Sunday Night Theme could now be included, along with a new poll. Spoiler alert: I’d still choose Heavy Action as my favorite NFL theme song.
Thoughts on News Items I Read
Mailing Days are Temporarily Here Again: prompted by articles on the decline of physical mail, as well as declining interest in email and voicemail. Posted 9(!) years ago, parts of it are still relevant yet I do think this one is a potential revisit for a future post.
How the CDC Can Help You Survive Your Zombie Wedding: posted in 2012 when the CDC was launching campaigns to raise awareness on emergency preparedness. Aw, simpler times.
Slices of Life
Abandoned Ideas: Name Proliferation Explaining how 15 y/o me thought I could become famous.
Peril on the 532: Recounting the day I was certain I would end up floating down a canal. Part of the Commuter Chronicles series I had created through this blog. I’ve long held an idea to craft a short novel detailing my experience as a public transportation commuter and this series was my way of testing the waters on this idea. This might be my muse should I decide to participate in NANOWRIMO this year.
Scenes from a Lunch Hour: Fun fact- I used this blog post as fodder for a sketch in a comedy writing class I took in 2013. If I can find my work from that class (crossing my fingers I backed this up on Google Drive), I may share it here in future posts.
Fire Evacuation: Glimpse into an eventful afternoon at work.
Shopping Cart Pirate Ship: I do believe this was my first Photo Friday. I started out with capturing quirky public art. This is what sparked an interest in photography for me.
Armed with just my cell phone camera, I found many interesting subjects for Photo Fridays. I then graduated to a Lumix digital point and shoot camera. That camera recently broke, so I upgraded to a Nikkon D5600 and will be taking classes in the coming weeks on how to use the darn thing. Bonus! I should have some fresh subject matter for Photo Fridays.
Dust Storm!: Alternate title for this could be Stupid Stuff I DId 10 Years Ago. I still can’t believe I sped ahead of this storm just to take photos.
