Volume 6 of Past-Lindsay Tweets brings us to Spring 2011, my final semester at Mizzou. Fun Fact: I tweeted 687 times in April 2011. What. the. heck. Past-Lindsay, you CRAY. I think it was because it was my last month of college, and I procrastinated the crap out of it. Let’s see how it went!
We’re back with tweets from Fall 2010, aka the first semester of my senior year at Mizzou! My first semester in my own apartment, my semester at a Freshman Interest Groups Student Coordinator, my first semester as a leader in my church. There are a lot of tweets about my good friends from LT and The Rock this time.
Most of the rest were just silly, self-explanatory thoughts and quotes. Oh, Past-Lindsay!
Welcome to the fourth installment of Past-Lindsay Tweets, Colorado LT edition!
Not as many tweets this time because I was busy living an amazing life in Colorado! 🙂
Welcome to the third edition of Past-Lindsay Tweets! This post comes to you from Spring 2010, aka my spring of my junior year of college. Reading these tweets was actually sort of hard at times for me. This semester, as I have written about previously, was really tough on me academically and with my job-load. I also recall struggling socially transitioning friend groups and (I’m a little embarrassed I tweeted vaguely about this) with a few crushes that year. Anyway, here are some funny and poignant tweets that sum up that spring!
Things to know: I was still an RA and front desk supervisor, but I also worked as an infographics designer for the Missourian and finally really committed a lot of my time to the Twain canvas group this semester.
Up next: Summer 2010, aka the summer of LT!
More tweets from Past-Lindsay! This time it’s from the fall of my junior year of college, aka Fall 2009. Things to know: I was an RA in Mark Twain Hall and also ran the residence hall front desk.
So, I don’t know if you knew this, but you can download your Twitter archives (under “settings”) and search them by date or key word. Y’all. This is a treasure trove of old 140-character thoughts from past-Lindsay.
I haven’t gone through all my old tweets yet, but I think I’m going to blog the best ones from various spans of time over the past four-to-five years. Yes, I have had Twitter for four-to-five years.
Here are my faves from Spring & Summer 2009, the end of my sophomore year of college and my second summer in Columbia when I worked at the Rec Center and reported for the Missourian. Enjoy!
Bike has passed away.
Sometime between Saturday, July 21 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 22 at 9:45 a.m., Bike’s wheels and seat were taken from him by force from the University Apartment’s bike rack. His frame was laid to rest outside the Willamette Bike Shop on Monday, July 23 at 9 a.m.
Bike was a faithful and loving bike. He was gentle and patient with his temporary owner, Lindsay, as she relearned to ride this summer and gained confidence in her new hobby. After nearly three weeks of trying to find the right bike at the start of the summer, in the end, Lindsay and Bike had barely more than four weeks together. But it was a beautiful month of many adventures. Bike and Lindsay often went on outings together with Lindsay’s friend Katie and her bike. They traveled across central Salem to various coffee shops, bible studies, Redbox deliveries, and breakfast dates. Bike and Lindsay even took a trip to Safeway and back, together managing the load of a week’s worth of groceries. Lindsay and Bike had made plans to go to church together for the first time this past weekend before Bike was brutally attacked and stripped of his vital organs.
Lindsay and Bike had planned to be separated in two weeks, but they had made many plans to make the most of the last days together. Lindsay and Bike’s last outing was a beautiful afternoon ride around the Willamette campus and to Salem’s McDonald’s for an afternoon treat. Bike impacted Lindsay’s summer in a way she will never forget. Without Bike, Lindsay would not have conquered her fear of all bikes. Lindsay plans to one day own a bike in honor of Bike.
Donations for Lindsay’s new bike fund will be accepted in lieu of flowers. Please feel free to comment and leave your favorite memories of Bike.
The following text message conversation is one of many reasons why I am pumped to live with my new roomie Kristina in the fall. And by fall, I mean our lease starts in 2 weeks. Whaaattttt?
Me: Skype date soon?
Kristina: Dude… yes. Are you free mornings or evenings more?
Me: Evenings. Also I am an hour behind you. Usually I’m good after 4:30 M-TH and after 1 on Fridays Pacific time.
July 13 (4 days later)
Kristina: 4 days later… what about monday eveningish? 8 your time?
Me: I have small group on Mondays 😦
Kristina: Ahh!! Let me get back to you after I can check my schedule. I’ll text you back in like 3 years, cool? Cool.
Me: Sweet. Look forward to hear from you on whatever is the hip way of communicating in 2015
July 17 (4 days later)
Kristina: This Friday evening? Or next Wednesday afternoon?
Me: Is it 2015 already? I can do Friday! After 5:30 your time. Next Wed is fine too! After 5:30 again.
July 19 (2 days later)
Kristina: Time flies dude. You will actually get the same message in about two days from a carrier pigeon. That breathes fire. Also the message will be in the form of a hologram. And it will say let’s skype Wednesday, 6:15? 2015 is going to rock!
UPDATE (JULY 4, 2011):
This is, by far, the most popular post on my blog with nearly 20,500 views since I posted it nearly a year ago. Part of that makes me sad because I write about so much more that silly web comics, but part of me likes it because I’m the first thing that pops up when you search “Ambien Walrus.”
Anyway, Toothpaste for Dinner posted another comic in the Ambien Walrus series tonight, so I figured I’d add it so I have the complete collection here on my blog!
ORIGINAL (JULY 20, 2010):
So last semester at some point, my Core Group discovered Ambien Walrus, a reoccurring character in Toothpaste For Dinner web comics. I love the Ambien Walrus. It makes me laugh every time, and today, there was a new Ambien Walrus cartoon.
Here, for your viewing pleasure, are all the Ambien Walrus comics thus far:
I’ve also noticed that I am steadily inching towards 10,000 views! (300ish views away!)
Ignore the fact that most of my views come from Google searches for Toothpaste For Dinner’s Ambien Walrus cartoons, I’m still really excited to hit this milestone, and would be even more excited to hit it in time for my blog’s birthday!
Can we make that happen, readers?
