Just saw this in my email today & turns out my blog You Again turned 1 last Tuesday!! Happy Belated Birthday, You Again!!!!!!!!!! :)
I first created this blog because my real life friends were tired of seeing half naked pictures of Nathan in his speedo 24/7. Originally, I just wanted to reblog pics of Nathan to soothe my own fangirlness; I was not expecting to be reading USMOST fanfics, loving this sport and supporting other swimmers, & making such great friends that comprise the fandom tags. I honestly don’t know what I expected out of the Nathan fandom other than pictures of the boy, lol.
But I am glad to have entered this world because I have gained so much from this Tumblr family in the past year since I created this blog and since we all collectively fallen in love with our golden boy. I know our families and friends cannot fully comprehend our love for Nathan & the rest of the USMOST, and think that we have completely lost our minds, but at least we all know what we’re going through and feeling within the fandom/tag. I don’t want to get too sentimental, but we do pretty much share this weird bond for this team & I’m so proud to be part of it. Let your freak flag fly, right? Lol.
Anyway, I’m thankful for all of you that have made this crazy swim year absolutely amazing. I have never stuck to a single sport for more than 2 months (including JR’s debut in Vancouver 2010), so I’m absolutely overjoyed to stick to USA Swimming, their members, & our strong fandom. I love all of you, & thank you for making this little fandom the best.
302 FOLLOWERS?!?!?!What the frak?? When did this happen????
Omg, thank you so much, guys!! You really are the best. :) It’s good to know that you guys actually like the ridiculous fangirl crap I always post. & I’m happy to say that I can truly call some of you my friends. Love chatting with you guys. Happy Holidays, folks!! :)
