Second Anniversary Blog

Today marks the second anniversary of this blog. Whoopee! I'm sure you guys are just having a little party to celebrate at the moment, and that you've been anticipating this blog ALL YEAR!

Well here you have it. Congratulations! C'mon Jimmy!
This is all Jimmy gets to do. Humor him, please.

I started this blog two years ago because, well, I actually hit the "Create Blog" button on accident, and then I filled in the information on an impulse. Which means I should be more spontaneous, because not only has the blogsphere opened a world of great writing, but of great people that I've had the privilege to know. Through this blog, I've been able to express my self and my strange sense of humor to smart, non-judging people, and the world could use more of them.

In the last two years, since I created this outlet for my Crazy Little Thoughts, I've grown a lot, and that's very much reflected in my writing, and the way I've been writing. Nadia Murti's Crazy Little Thoughts became a way to enhance my writing, get my thoughts down on virtual paper, and most of all, have fun, and I'm so glad I discovered this.

But let's shake things up; I'll use this blog post to express how else I've grown: musically!

I suppose you could say I'm into "weird" bands--but not "local indie bands" like all cliché teens think are the best--but bands that are a bit less known to the world, but totally should be.

So, here are bands that YOU should know that I've discovered in the last 2 years!

The Wombats
Arcade Fire
Damien Rice
Freelance Whales
The Like
Regina Spektor
The Antlers
Darren Criss
The XX
A Fine Frenzy
The Shins
Modest Mouse
God Help The Girl
Downtown Fiction
Death Cab For Cutie
Cage The Elephant
Florence + The Machine

And for those of you who have been awesome enough readers to at least skim through that list, I have something for YOU!

I'd like to introduce you to...

The Something-Part Series Dissecting Freshman Culture, Behavior, and Interaction.

And if you haven't realized by now, I've been reading a lot of sociology books as of late. Because that's what mature* people do. I guess I'm already kind of doing this, but let's just make it official with a tag.

Anywho, what do you think of this idea? It combines my amazing humor (see! Right there!) with my interest in sociology and anthropology with my own crazy little thoughts, PLUS my expertise in all things Freshman, not to mention, it totally coincides with my Diary of a Freshman.

So, what do you all think?

AND if you're awesome (and if you're reading this, you are), you get this Official Badge of Awesome
And congratulations to me!

Your Two-Year Old Blogger,

*Pronounced mah-tyoor

P.S. Thank you. So much.
