Huzzah! T#G Snagged a Versatile Blogger Award!

For once, my tendency to be kind of random and neurotic has paid off: A Worried Student honored me with the Versatile Blogger Award! It came as quite a surprise – he has so many wonderful followers and is such a talented blogger himself that I would’ve never imagined he’d pick me. So, if for some reason you aren’t already following him, make sure you head on over to his flipping marvelous blog (even if you’re not worried. Or a student. Or a worried student).

Anywho, with great power comes great responsibility, and therefore, it is my duty to provide y’all with seven facts about me and a list of versatile blogs that I absolutely adore. Please make sure that you check out all of ’em!

Seven Facts About Me

1. I’m neurotic when it comes to the types of posts I… uh… post. I worry that I write too much about culture, and not enough about jobs, finance, and tech. In other words, I worry that T#G isn’t versatile enough. I guess this award proves me wrong. #huzzah
2. I was born and raised in the South, so it drives me nuts when an actor/character adopts a Southern accent that sounds like it belongs to a person from the 19th century. It’s terribly inaccurate. I’m sure it’s the same way British people feel when American actors (except Johnny Depp) try to put on British accents.
3. When I was like four or five years old, I thought that boxed ice cream cones sold in grocery stores came with a scoop of ice cream in them. I was bitterly disappointed when we’d open the box and there would only be cones, but no ice cream. I was stupid. I was easily fooled by the photo on the outside of the box.
4. I watch “Friends” every night before going to bed.
5. When I was in the fifth grade, a friend told me about this book she was reading called “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” She said it was really good, and she offered to let me borrow it. I declined, and said  “I don’t like that sci-fi and fantasy stuff.” Dumbest decision I ever made.
6. If my entire wardrobe consisted of items from Kate Spade and if my home was decorated with items from Anthropologie and Crate & Barrel, I’d be the happiest girl in all the land.
7. “Finding Nemo” is Pixar’s best movie. End of story.

Because I’m Happier Than Pharrell

I have my first (and technically only) final tomorrow, and I know it’s going to absolutely brutal. I’ve taken plenty of law school finals to know that when I walk back into my house tomorrow afternoon, this will be me:

Despite the ominous cloud that is currently hanging over my head, I AM OVER THE MOON. Why? Because yesterday my little blog reached 100 followers, AND it had the most page views in its history! So, as of right now, this IS me:

Thank you to everyone who has viewed, liked, commented, and followed The Hashtag Generation! And thank you all for sharing a little piece of your life with us with your blogs. Aaaaand thank you giving me a little glimmer of happiness in what is otherwise a dreadful week (I have five papers I have to edit and submit :/). #grateful

Happy one-month birthday to my blog!

Squee! The Hashtag Generation turned one-month-old yesterday! In honor of this little milestone, I thought I’d write something a little more traditionally bloggy. So, I present you with a list of my most random favorite things.

My top three favorite TV shows (that are currently airing): Suits, Scandal, New Girl.

My favorite song: This is hard. If we’re going to be objective about it, then we’ve got to use the most played song in my iTunes library. That would be “The Scientist” by Coldplay, which has gotten 400 spins over the past several years. However, my favorite song at the moment is a tie between “Out of My League” by Fitz & the Tantrums and “Love Me Again” by John Newman.

My favorite blog: Hyperbole and a Half.

My favorite law humor blog12(b)(6): failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

My favorite place: THIS. It’s also probably one of my favorite photographs that I’ve taken.


My favorite meme: Paranoid Parrot. Although Anxiety Cat is a close second.

My favorite 90’s sitcomBoy Meets World. Still watch it to this day.

My favorite person to follow on Twitter: Mindy Kaling. Examples of her tweets:
“If I ever meet a murderer hiding in my house, I can say truthfully: “I’ve been expecting you.” That will scare the hell out of him I bet.”
“Keith Morrison deserves a Golden Globe for his work on Dateline.”

My favorite non-person to follow on Twitter: Vanity Fair. Whoever is responsible for tweeting out on VF’s account during popular TV broadcasts (presidential debates, award shows, big sporting events) is incredibly sassy. I love it.

My favorite class: The Law of War. Yeah, that’s a real thing. It’s also known as international humanitarian law.

My favorite podcast: The Bobby Bones Show. I don’t listen to music in my car anymore – I just listen to podcasts of this nationally-syndicated morning show. The show used to air on Top 40 stations, but switched over to country stations a little over a year ago. Watch this video to get a feel for these crazy people (who, in my head, are my friends IRL):

My favorite news website: The Atlantic.

My favorite recipe I’ve found on a blog: French breakfast muffins. These things are loaded with butter and sugar, but they are so incredibly delicious. Once you start eating these, you won’t be able to stop.
