Hi there! Guess what? Today is kind of an anniversary for me! It marks 4 years since I made my very first post on My Name is Not Katie! FOUR! I am the first to admit that I’m not super consistent and especially at the beginning I didn’t post often at all, but it’s kind of fun to look back and know that I’ve had this little creative outlet for so long.
So why did I even start this whole thing? That’s a very good question. I really have no idea. I guess that I just wanted a fun space where I could type some of my thoughts, share things that I liked, and chronicle some of the adventures I go on. Which is pretty much what I still do. Yay!
Looking back, my first post was about nothing super important or introductory- it was just about something I found that I wanted to share. And now I’m going to share it, again! Here’s a look back at my very first post!
No, I am not sad. I’m not sitting here crying as I write this. But you know who is sad? Dawson Leery.
I recently started watching Dawson’s Creek on Netflix and it is so bad… But it is so good! And after talking with some of my lovely friends, I found out that they have also recently started watching the show too! We’ve had a lot of fun talking about the drama, the crazy clothes, the bizarre hairstyles (that believe it or not were considered cool). By far, however, the best conversation we have had is when we all realized that Dawson is the world’s ugliest crier. Hands down. And I just can’t stop laughing at it.
His tears have even inspired their own meme: 90’s Problems. It is pure internet gold. So tonight, while in desperate need of a study break, I decided to have a little giggle and look at poor little Dawson and all of his problems. I went to Google. Searched for “Dawson’s Creek Crying” (I couldn’t remember what the actual pictures were called) and what did I find? Something even better! James VanDerMemes! It is amazing. Seriously. Go there now.
Basically, good ole Dawson knows how to not only make fun of himself, but totally capitalize on it at the same time. Here on this glorious site, you can find amazing gifs of James Van Der Beek displaying a wide range of emotions and actions to help you show everyone exactly how you’re feeling. Seriously, though. I’m going to try and use these in everyday life as much as possible. But until then, back to studying!
Oh man, I have NOT been using the James VanDerMemes as much as I should! I need to get on that… that might actually be a new goal, to use ALL of them!
