Links à la Mode: 20th June '13

School field trips, school shows, orchestra auditions, orchestra concerts, uni open days - everything has decided to happen this week, and I am exhausted. Having decided that open days are thoroughly depressing affairs and I hardly stand a chance against over ten other applicants for one spot on a dentistry course, I will now proceed to freak out over the weekend.

The Nostalgia of Summer

By Ashley "Ashe" Robison

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 thirty this summer, something I look forward to with a great, child-like enthusiasm.  It also makes me think about the last ten 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 child-like 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.
