Blog Reminiscing

It’s coming to be my one year “blogiversary” and I’ve been looking back on posts I’ve made throughout the past 12 months. I’ve come to the conclusion that within that time period, I haven’t let any of you know much about me. I mean, there was this tag post, but even then, I kept a lot of myself to myself. So, as one of my new year’s resolutions, I’m going to try to let you all know a bit more about me in this post, and in posts to come (hopefully).
First off, as some of you may know my name is Abby. I like to write, but don’t write about much else other than nails on this blog. I think it is because I’m afraid my random thoughts may offend some, and I don’t think many get my sense of humor (which is a bummer, ‘cos I’m hilarious!- in my own mind :) ). I’ve thought of starting a new blog where I could just write and post about whatever I wish, but that hasn’t happened yet- that’s actually what’s been on my mind for a while, so there is a small potential that it may happen.
ANYWAY…. here are some random facts about me:
  • I honestly think everybody has something beautiful about them.
  • I like tentacles.
  • I like gears.
  • (you may or may not know this, but) I like nail polish.
  • I like words that start with “A”- amazing, awesome, awful, assassin, asshole, etc.. …Except afghan. Too granny for me.
  • I don’t like the “ :p ” face- it makes me sad.
  • I love album artwork.
  • I am an up front person, but (as far as I know) I haven’t crossed the line with anyone… yet.
  • I like to make things.
  • I’d like to own a pair of tall strappy boots and kick in a door.
  • I love getting snail mail and random texts/emails… but mostly snail mail!! Oh, and notes. I like reading physical objects that can’t be deleted. I think it’s because you can draw in them, and I find it to be more personal :)
  • I always have hand sanitizer with me.
  • I’m afraid that one day there aren’t going to be anymore physical CDs or albums :(
  • I make a lot of faces.
  • I don’t take compliments well- aside from nails- I get enough of them, and can easily accept them :)  If someone tells me something nice about myself, I don’t usually know if they’re trying to be nice, or actually mean it.
  • I like making new friends.
  • I’m not a fan of labels. Human labels/groups that is. Not sticky labels. I happen to think Mr. Yuck labels are a great idea.
I found that way to easy to write! So easy that that second blog may happen! I could have kept going, but figured nobody wants to stay and read it all day. If you made it this far I congratulate you (well, obviously you made it this far- how else would you be reading this?), but I’m not done quite yet!
Seeing as the title is “Blog Reminiscing”, I should reminisce, right?

Well, that’s it for this post! Thanks for reading… or just skipping to the pictures. But, if you did actually read all of it, let me know in the comments; I’d like to thank and congratulate you!


  1. I read the whole thing! Also, you are so talented! I wish I could paint my nails like that!

    1. Thank you so much! It really means a lot to me!
      I wasn't very good at nails when I started (especially my non dominant hand), either; it just takes practice. If you email me, I can try to make more tutorials you'd be interested in :)

  2. I'm still in awe over your Edgar Allen Poe Nails! And you like nail polish - whaaat?! Haha, Happy New Year!

    1. Haha! You're too nice! Happy New Year to you, too! Thanks for reading :)
