The Nostalgia of Summer
It’s been a long time since I’ve edited LaLM, but it’s how I began my time as an IFB contributor. It seems appropriate to return during the summer because it’s always been the season for nostalgia. It doesn’t help that I turn 30 this summer, something I look forward to with a great, child-like enthusiasm. It also makes me think about the last 10 years of my life, where I’ve gone, and how far I’ve come.
Somewhere in the heart of these posts is a sense of nostalgia they bring out in me. Whether it’s the childlike enthusiasm over nails that resemble a sprinkled ice cream cone and reminiscing about my first time watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s or thinking about high-school physics with fashion, how I got out of credit card debt, or the changing tide of the blogosphere, I hope these posts stir a bit of nostalgia in you, too. (Or at least inspire you to start rewatching The Nanny on Netflix.)
Or, as The In Club asks, maybe we’re just too damned nostalgic.
