2020 scrapbook

Past editions: 2019 · 2018
Even if I was awful at keeping up with this at times (mostly during those months I didn't really check LJ), it's fun to see the different lists I end up making. I completely forgot to prepare the different banners so I might redo them in the next few days.

Music Meme!

Blatantly took this from tinnny. I didn't put the first song that came to mind for some so I could try and have different artists but most of these came to me as I squeezed my brain trying to remember others. And then... I couldn't stop. (See the runners up.)
I also struggled big time to think of a few categories and would usually think of lyrics before the title.

Without Googling, name a song with one of the following in the title: a place, a food, a drink, an animal, a number, a color, a girl's name, a boy's name, a profession, a vehicle.
(apologies for any butchered name, since I couldn't google)

Place: Kyoto (Phoebe Bridgers)
Food: American Pie (Don McLean)
Drink: Juice (Lizzo)
Animal: Man O' War (Eric Bachmann) (I truly love this song... and I can't stand this type of animal.)
Number: 24 Frames (Jason Isbell)
Color: Gold (Spandau Ballet)
Girl's Name: Cleopatra (The Lumineers)
Boy's Name: Alexander Hamilton (Hamilton OBC)
Profession: The Scientist (Coldplay)
Vehicle: Fast Car (Tracy Chapman)

Under the spoiler cut, a few others I thought of (especially for places). It's surprising how some artists I listen to a lot aren't in here (guess the songs that come to mind were unrelated to these themes?). There are quite a few, ngl, and there are probably even more I haven't remembered yet.
[runners up]
Places (it's so vague a bunch from the ones below could also fit!): California (Jamestown Revival - I looooooove this song), Manhattan (La Oreja de Van Gogh), Alaska (Maggie Rogers), Dead Sea (The Lumineers), Queenstown (Passenger), Venice Canals (Passenger), Riding to New York (Passenger), Islands in the Stream (Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers)
Food: Lemon Tree (???? can't remember), Lollipop (Mika), Strawberry Fields Forever (Beatles)
Drink: Poison & Wine (The Civil Wars), Red Red Wine (UB40??? - also counts for color)
Animal: Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Iron & Wine)
Number: 27 (Passenger), 1973 (James Blunt), Ahead by a Century (The Tragically Hip) (does this count???? century = 100 years, technically), 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton), Ten Duel Commandments (Hamilton OBC), 22 (Taylor Swift)
Color: Fields of Gold (Sting), Red (TS), Purple Rain (Prince), Yellow Submarine (Beatles), Where the Skies are Blue (The Lumineers)
Girl's Name: Cornelia Street (TS - also a place), betty (TS), Grace Kelly (Mika), Ophelia/Gloria/Angela (The Lumineers, who love to use women's names), Demi Moore (Phoebe Bridgers), Dear Theodosia (Hamilton)
Boy's Name: Scott Street (Phoebe Bridgers), Aaron Burr, Sir (Hamilton), Dear John (TS), Fernando (ABBA)
Profession: Smooth Criminal (Michael Jackson), The Gambler (Kenny Rogers), The Gambler (fun.) (lbr gambling isn't really a profession)
Vehicle: I'm in Love with my Car (Queen)



Anyhow, this was really fun and I had to stop myself. brb going to find to a few of these I haven't listened to in a while :)

I liked the first one so much I ended up doing it again! Twice over! It's an interesting trip down memory lane, for sure. I'm going to try to give a bit more context of the ones I remember better.  (Quick note: I make icons with my old laptop so I'll try to find the original screencaps here. I have a large-but-clearly-not-large-enough collection of textures and unfortunately most have no credit... Just ask! And building on that, icons sometimes look different, particularly in regards to sharpening, from one laptop to the other because of resolution.) Also, these got very long this time around because I detailed a bit more of the process and definitely gave a lot of context. I tried to give context and thoughts if I remembered about them.
The usual rules:

1. Comment to this entry saying - 'Today we're cancelling the apocalypse' - and I will pick 3 of your icons/userpics.
2. Make an entry in your own journal (or just reply if you prefer) and talk about the icons I picked!

Thank you to novindalf and wunderkind_lucy for indulging me once again! ♥

This was fun! Definitely explained myself a lot more. I'll probably go back to the first part and give some more detail. In fact, I am posting this one now so I stop talking.
Comment and I'll give you icons! :D

Here are the three userpics tinnny chose :D

It was fun reminiscing about these icons and I probably could've said a bunch more things, hehe. (And if you're interested in learning more about my userpics in either LJ or DW, drop me a comment!)
And please drop me a comment if you want to do this :D

[the other four entries from 2019 I forgot to crosspost here]

September - not that many icons but I slowly got back into it. [28 icons or so?]


October - 45 icons


November - regular update + a self-imposed 20in20 challenge. 48 icons. Not unlike last year, some of my favorite icons of the year.


December - monthlyinspo round 29 set + bestof_icons remakes + other challenges. 29 icons

bestof_icons || activities start December 13


Last year was tons of fun and I can't wait to participate in this year's activities :)
(let's hope work doesn't leave me exhausted and I can help with the nominations this year.)
Also hoping to post the November icons soon! All my free non-Sims time I'm using to try and make a set for monthlyinspo, so I keep forgetting to make that post.

(no subject)

welp, long time no post over here. I only really use this journal to comment and to sporadically update the scrapbook (which I still need to review for late May!), and post all my icons over at holyinterruptus whenever I get the time to compile everything.
On the personal front... Work is exhausting and this project I've been on for the last month is so damn stressful + we're literally about to turn it in. I have very little free time and inspiration.


Here's a quick post with everything I've posted since January.

February - 21 icons


March - 60 icons (some of my favorite icons this year)


monthlyinspo round 24: opposites attract (May, 20 icons) · kind of proud of these!


April & May - 53 icons
