This is a belated listaversary celebration 🎈
  1. I remember downloading the app sometime in late Oct 2015 and then not really knowing what to do with it, and then posting two lists on 11/3/15.
    It was some seriously subpar content but I just felt pressure to produce ya know?
  2. Then there was a weird hiatus from then til May mostly because again, I didn't really know what to do with this app and also last spring semester was so busy.
  3. Then in May I returned to VA just in time to miss the ATL Li.st Meetup 😢 Literally 3 days before the meetup happened.
    Honestly one of my biggest regrets in life. @mallofamanda I will help you plan another one please please
  4. I was SUPER BORED at my parent's house so I got real active then.
  5. Images I Have Captured of the Sky Doing Its Thang and The Tale of How Dave Matthews' Face Got Me Booed in a Large Arena were the first lists where I was like "omg people do actually care about what I post!"
  6. But then I was abroad for the summer doing an evaluation for a large NGO in northern Ghana.
  7. @franksars helped me with my layover and lemme tell you when I made it to my hotel room in Accra & the reality of my aloneness in this country I had never been to before hit, & I turned on my phone & saw that trending confetti for The greatest dam layover [8 Hours in Amsterdam] my heart was so warm.
    Apologies for the longest run on sentence ever, I'm getting emotional here.
  8. THEN li.st didn't work for most of the summer months because shitty wifi, but I managed to lurk occasionally and even got enough wifi power to post a few lists!
    @list just a heads up your app does not work well in Tamale, Ghana. Might want to work on that. There's a possibility I'll be abroad again next summer so if you need any testing hmu.
  9. The summer was a journey and I wrote a blog post or two on the interwebs but li.st really helped me condense my thoughts and it was very therapeutic even if I couldn't publish them without Internet.
  10. And then ever since I got back to the US of A I've been much more active and I'm on list for good!
  11. I've met a couple of listers IRL! I saw @mallofamanda do stand up and she was one of those hilarious yet also endearing comedians, but like you guys also know this already. AND I finally ate food with @catharuin and it was everything I'd dreamed of and more.
  12. Except you guys have disappointed me a few times to be honest.
  13. Specifically the following 3 times:
  14. Yes I am still bitter about this: A Few Observations
  15. Do Eastwood's pants mean nothing to you?!?! TOP 5: Eastwood's Pants
    At least @Boogie and @MissJess get it.
  16. I'm going to be listing about college basketball for the next 5 months starting on Friday so this will be much more enjoyable for us all if you all just love my team okay?
  17. Anyway, no matter if I stay in ATL after graduation or find employment elsewhere in 2017 I know I can reach out to listers wherever I end up. And that is such a great reality for me, a youth with the world as her oyster.
    LOL I'm getting ridiculous now lets wrap this up.
  18. Thank you for reading this long, self serving list. I LOVE YOU ALL. If you have ever liked any of my lists I consider us friends just FYI. I'll end with a Krabby Patty gif, just for you.
