10:20am – Breakfast + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 🍳 

S1E1 – Hotel Hangout

👁 Spotted: Alyson Stoner! We’ve all envied her dance moves since the early 2000s. I still can’t move like her. 😂

11:20am – Editing a video 🎥

3:20pm – Dinner + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 🍔 

S1E2 – The Fairest of Them All

👁 Spotted: Victoria Justice! Yes, it’s true. She was on both Disney Channel & Nickelodeon. GASP!

Another familiar Disney Channel face is Matt Winston; he played Hannah Montana’s fashion designer Fermaine. This time around, he was pageant host Tim.

5:15pm – Blogging + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 💻 

S1E3 – Maddie Checks In

5:45pm – Blogging + Stuck in the Suburbs 💻 

This is my FAVORITE non-franchise Disney Channel original movie. It stars not only Brenda Song & Danielle Panabaker but also baby Taran Killam. Yes, THAT Taran Killam from Saturday Night Live. 😮

Fun Fact: Drew Seeley cameos as David, the hotel desk clerk. It is believed that he was Jordan Cahill’s singing voice. His voice was also used for Troy Bolton in High School Musical (only the 1st movie).

8pm – Blogging + Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior 💻 

If you haven’t already guessed, today is all about Disney Channel queen Brenda Song. 👑

Anyone else have a HUGE crush on Shin Koyamada back in the day?? Since we’re on the subject, I’ll also admit to crushin’ on Justin Chon. *sigh* 🥰

Even though this movie is about a Chinese family, I think it’s important to note that Brenda is Hmong & Thai; Justin is Korean; & Shin is Japanese. 🇨🇳 🇹🇭 🇰🇷 🇯🇵

Final thoughts for the day: Yes, I did spend my day off from work working. But, it was raining, & I was watching Disney+ so I can’t really complain. 😂 I didn’t watch as many Suite Life episodes as I wanted to so don’t be surprised if it pops up again. Stuck in the Suburbs transported me right back to middle school squealing over the latest popstar sensation. I mean, I still wish Jordan Cahill was real. 😍 Ending the day with Wendy Wu has me feeling like a kick-butt warrior who could go out right now & save the world. Show me a villain! 💥 I’m off from work again tomorrow so buckle up for day 10. I see a princess or two or three in my near future. 👸

Back to the Days of Yesteryear

If you know me well, you know that my life is fueled by nostalgia.  Not a day goes by without me thinking about something childhood-related.  For awhile I felt like a freak who just couldn’t handle the stress of “adulting.”  Turns out I’m not alone.  More and more people born in the 90s are speaking up and reminiscing about the “good old days.”  In college, blankets and backpacks adorned by beloved characters such as Strawberry Shortcake and Spongebob Squarepants were a normal sight.  I’ve recently noticed several Youtube videos revolving around childhood.  Remakes of classic TV shows and movies are being produced by the dozens.  There is unrest in the 2010s!!  I can think of two major reasons why this is happening.

1.  It’s normal to reach an age where childhood is a distant memory, and adulthood is a scary place.  The feeling is similar to that of a skydiver’s parachute unexpectedly disappearing.  Suddenly the innocence and freedom of the grade school years sounds like an upgrade.

2.  People are truly unhappy with the quality of entertainment (toys, music, movies, shows, etc) being produced this decade.  The 90s and 2000s are a golden age of sorts.  Think about it.  “Full House” has a successful spinoff, and “Hey Arnold” reruns air every weeknight on The Splat.  If demand is any indication, the surge of nostalgia isn’t stopping anytime soon.

No matter the reason, we are winning the battle.  Millennials unite!!  Here’s a look at my childhood:

• Baby Years (1993 – 1998)

• Middle Years (1999 – 2003)

*Note: I also watched a lot of old shows such as “Looney Tunes”, “The Flintstones”, I Love Lucy”, The Andy Griffith Show”, and “The Brady Bunch.”  My dad and I watched western movies on the weekends.  Lots of John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. :)

Teen Years (2004 – 2011)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

*Note: My later teen years were spent obsessing over crime shows such as “CSI”, “CSI: NY” and “The Mentalist.”  I also watched reruns of old shows such as “The Nanny”, “Friends”, “Saved by the Bell”, and “Full House.”

What a way to start the Jewish New Year!!  I was checking my Lauren Michele Poetry Website/Blog to make sure everything was in its right place and working.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I now have 114 followers.  Thank you so much to everyone who has followed this blog and remained faithful.  It means the world to me that each of you cares enough to read what I write.  This post is all about all of you.  I wish I had something more to offer in return, but all I can promise is more blog posts.  Now that I have surpassed the 100 mark, my goal for the next year is 200.  Time to blog blog blog!!

Stay tuned readers…
