Influential things of my childhood that made me who I am today

In no particular order. Pop culture consumes my life.
  1. The Muppets
    "It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights". Thanks Mom & Dad.
  2. Sailor Moon
    Coming home every day from school to watch this show brought me so much happiness. And it still does. Moon prism power, indeed.
  3. The Little House series
    Reading my mom's old copies of these books will always be so sentimental to me. I was constantly putting myself into the adventures with Laura Ingalls Wilder & Co.
  4. S Club 7
    My love of British pop music started early and never went away. To this day I can still belt out every S Club song by heart.
  5. Harry Potter series
    The magic of reading.
  6. Lord of the Rings trilogy
    The magic of movies.
  7. Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen
    Passport to Paris, Our Lips Are Sealed, Winning London. Need I say more?
  8. McFly
    "All About You" will never not be my favorite love song. And Tom Fletcher is still the best human.
  9. Disney Channel
    I'm looking at you Hannah Montana & High School Musical.
  10. The Killers
    I remember being 13 and losing my mind over Hot Fuss and every album since then....
  11. Duke basketball
    Very serious business in my household.
  12. Little Women
    I have FIVE different copies of this book and the 1994 film is one of my all time favorite movies. I am a total Amy and proud of it.
  13. Gilmore Girls
    No list about my childhood influences would be complete without the mother of them all. I could go on and on about how much this show has molded me into who I am. I sometimes feel like I've learned more from Gilmore than I have almost anything in life. Pop culture references and witty banter galore, this show was a warm blanket of comfort for me during my teenage years. Not to get too soppy but Stars Hollow will always feel like home.
