1000 Followers – Let’s Party!

1,000 Follows!

Well shit. Not the classiest intro I’ve ever had, but that’s what I said when I realized that 1000 followers was within reach, and it’s now in fact here. There are now 1000 blogs that get my ramblings showing up in their reader every day.

Same Ben, same.

I’m glad that my blog is entertaining to all of you, and I love that you guys enjoy my content! I do consider myself a part of a larger community, I love that there are so many of us supporting and encouraging each other as we talk about our lives. Speaking of, like many other bloggers that have celebrated reaching a milestone, I’ve decided to celebrate with a blog party!

Now, I don’t have anything super organised for this party, I’ve never been one to host any kind of huge get together. The most I do is offer my place for people to get together to play games, eat food and hang out. So this is pretty much again what I’m going to do.

Now, here’s what would be cool. In the comments below, let’s have a little party. Introduce yourself, your blog, and then just chat to each other. Also, say what you’ll bring to the party. It could be an item, food, a game, a drink, a skill, a karaoke machine, whatever. I’m curious to see what this party will end up like. It’s not just because I can’t organise a party all on my own haha (coughs).

Anyway, as hostess I’ll go first. Hi, I’m Angela and this is my blog. You would know that already since you’re reading this. For my offering to the party. I bring baked goods, as I love baking and I’d love to share them.

Come on in when you want guys. Till then, I’m just awkwardly hovering by the door, helping myself to the cookies, and hoping people will come by. Also, I may sporadically appear and vanish in the comments as I will also be working. But you know, I’ll come by and party in the breaks.

Angela.

30 Day Movie Challenge – Day 11

30 Day Movie Challenge – Day 11

Day 11 – Your Favourite Movie From Your Childhood

The Little Mermaid

Along with many other 90’s kids, I grew up with Disney. I watched a lot of them growing up. I was going back and forth between The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. I love all the other Disney films as well, but these two are the ones I clearly remember watching when I was little.

However, Ariel was for a while everything to me. The main reason, she was a mermaid (I loved going to the pools), and she could siiiiing. I remember singing along to the songs, particularly Part of your world. Eric was cool too, but he didn’t sing so pffft. He did have crazy blue eyes though (as does Ariel). Then of course, there was Sebastian. I love Sebastian, he ended up being the comic sidekick, and also he had some amazing songs of his own. Also as a grown up, I tend to side with him more. He’s a lot more practical while Ariel is definitely a dreamer.

Also, I was vaguely scared of Ursula as a kid, but now I love her. She’s so evil and fabulous. Her song is now my favourite song from the movie, and I sing along to it loud and proud.

Have you guys seen The Little Mermaid? What’s your favourite Disney movie?

What’s a movie from your childhood?

Also, I forgot to say yesterday, but also check out Hannah who’s doing this challenge too!!

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Alright, so this is gonna be interesting to see who watched this show, and who has no idea what I’m talking about. Also, second to last letter, we’ve almost made it through the whole alphabet!!

Y is for Yu-Gi-Oh!

So this is one of the animes that I was absolutely obsessed with when I was younger. I watched this whole series as a kid, and got very invested in all the goings on of the show. I also love this:

It’s basically a meme now. Okay, how do I explain this show..

A shy high-school student named Yugi Moto receives the fragmented pieces of an Egyptian artifact, known as the Millennium Puzzle, from his grandfather. When Yugi reassembles the puzzle he is possessed by the 3,000-year-old spirit of an ancient pharaoh. Yugi and his friends Joey, Tea and Hondo protect the puzzle, which contains powerful secrets many people would like to possess.

That’s from it’s Wiki. It doesn’t even talk about the cards. Anyway, the gist is that everyone plays this game called Duel Monsters. You have a deck full of monsters, traps, spells and such and you fight against another player. You have a certain number of lifepoints, and when they reach zero, you’re ‘dead’ and you lose the match. They link this game to lots of ‘Shadow Realm’ things where the monsters and matches become a lot more real. Look, it’s complicated to explain, but its one of the most well-known animes, along with Pokemon and DragonBall Z.
