First, let's talk about the fact that I found my old blog today while scouring the internet to figure out why Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes commented on my super angry late night blog post (the best kind of blog post, really,) to say congrats. I was confused. I was pretty sure I hadn't posted anything exciting that has happened to me on here or on twitter. What could I have done? While looking through the vastness know as the internet, I googled my blog's name to see if there had been some other blog post mentioning my blog, or something else of that nature. Guess what I found. I had found my really old and started in seventh grade diabetes blog. I looked at it and cringed. I cringed even more than when I look at my first post on this blog. And that's saying something.
I read through the whole entire thing and laughed at seventh grade moi. I had my name as nautilus. (I didn't even have a capitalized 'N.' It was cool to type in all lowercase in 2010.) Did I mention that my obsession at the time of that blog's creation was the nautilus? My twitter username used to be 'nautilusofdoom.' (Wait, why did I just share that with the whole world?) I used those text emoticon thingies in almost all of my posts. I made a whole photo album on Photobucket about getting my Contour USB. I don't remember making any of these posts, but I obviously did. Seeing my old blog made me laugh and cringe* and it was a total #tbt in the most entertaining way possible. (I laughed even more when I found my other old blog from seventh grade. I was pretending to be super girly and care a lot about make up and fashion. You can ask any of my friends and I promise they'll tell you that I'm pretty much the opposite of that. I've since given up on trying. I also got a kick out of my attempt to sound vague, but also cool with my tumblr's name. 'Insecure Light,' Sarah? Really?)

Moral of the Story: Today has been pretty unexpectedly awesome.
*The most cringe-worthy thing I read on the old blog was this: "I will just post about my life as a diabetic and topics that align with the purpose of this blog." That sounds like a portion of a legal disclaimer or something. Why on Earth would I have thought to say something like that?
When was the last time that you accidentally found something cringe-worthy from your past?
