Facebook brought us Timeline and guess what?

We got over it.

Just like we knew we would.

One Year Ago Today

– Seattle Restaurant Week began! This year, it runs through April 8-19. Check out the participating restaurants here.

– We viewed Death Cab For Cutie’s live music video for “You Are A Tourist.”

– We read some news and stuff.

– Madewell debuted their Fall 2011 collection and it was glorious!

– I got a little antsy about summer wedding season. Ashley and I spent 45 minutes watching wedding/proposal videos this evening.

– I wanted to buy some things. What else is new?

Most importantly, I discussed the 21 things I learned from my 21st birthday!

– There were a few things that I was obsessing over and they were awesome. Enough said.

– This infographic already told us what we already knew about the Pacific Northwest.

– This book was pretty cool.

– I wondered why Washington never had any cool prints made for them like this one.

– This is the best excuse I’ve ever seen.

One Year Ago Today…

I was definitely on my winter break because the amount of content I posted would not have been possible during finals week or even a regular week. Random fact – this was not exactly a year ago, but give or take a few days, the new Facebook layout was revealed and now that same thing is happening to us once again with the Timeline.

Well, back to what happened a year ago…

Mayor Mike McGinn announced that the Dale Chihuly Museum and the KEXP headquarters will be moving into the Seattle Center.

– We learned about the Seattle music scene from 12 local bands in the short series $5 Cover.

– I made up my winter quarter television schedule. RIP Hellcats.

– The Kardashians got serious for the holidays.

E! never launched this show, thank goodness!

– We learned that a school’s library is a nice alternative for your own bed.

Flavorwire let us know what our favorite 2010 movies said about us.

One Year Ago Today

One thing that I’m extremely grateful for from WordPress is the archive function for my blog. Yes, I realize that many sites do have this. No, this is not the first time I am discovering it. Many times, what I have found in blog writing is that I write the post and then I’m done. I don’t revisit many of my old posts and many of them sort of get forgotten and left in the past. It’s funny because I wanted to create Yow Yow! initially so that I could remember everything that has happened within the past few years, but I haven’t made any effort to do that…until now.

On August 25, 2010 this happened:

– We learned that London would be hosting this awesome installation called Outrace

– We mourned the 9-year anniversary of Aaliyah’s death. Unfortunately, today will have been ten years since her death.

– Songs that we couldn’t get out of our heads were given to us one after the other on Unhearit.

Gmail taught us how to take back an email that we didn’t really mean to send immediately after sending it. I still can’t figure out how to do that today.
