This is the last of the Nostalgia Time posts! I toyed with the idea of doing more, but none of them were long enough to justify making separate blog posts, and I’m a little tired of this series. I want to move onto other subjects!
I was really into Linkin Park in my younger years. They were the band I primarily listened to in middle school and then later in high school. I sort of lost interest in university, but I don’t know why. I still like their music.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to listen to a single Linkin Park song since Chester Bennington died. Maybe I will be in the future.
I didn’t have console games as a kid. If I wanted to play video games, I’d have to go over to a friend’s house (they had a GameCube) or wait until my family went over to my aunt/cousin’s house (they had an N64). It was there I was introduced to a lot of Nintendo games – primarily Super Smash Brothers, Mario Party, Kirby Air Ride, and Billy Hatcher & The Giant Egg.
I think what I miss the most is getting together with friends and playing those games. That’s definitely not something that happens any more – not even due to covid. Video games are mostly set up for online play nowadays.
This was a show that practically everyone in my friend group watched. I know I drew a ton of fanart for Teen Titans, all of it on paper (I have zero digital fanart, surprisingly). Some of it was done in my notebooks at school when I should have been paying attention.
I’m still salty that this show got canceled. I really wanted to see season 6.
Warriors is another series I discovered in middle school. I was on Neopets at the time, so I did what seemed reasonable and looked for Warriors roleplay guilds so I could have my own Warrior cat adventures.
Oddly enough, this is how I learned about Deviantart. A guild member posted their artwork there.
I ended up reading all the books of the first three series. At that point, I’d lost interest as it seemed like the story was just going to go on and on indefinitely.
I started this series of blog posts not only because I wanted to get back into blogging, but because I assumed that writing more frequently would help me improve my writing in general. It’s probably too early to say whether or not this is true, but it has certainly helped me get back into blogging. There are going to be a lot more posts this year than in 2020.
