I call this community "All Names Tooken" because every name I tried to choose for this community was already taken, including "Glory Daze" and "Former Glory". This is a community for sharing happy memories and attempting to reconstruct some of the more enjoyable parts of our past. Seasons in our lives come and go. Times change. This is a community for reminscing, rekindling old friendships and nurturing new ones.
Surely there are things you used to do before that you haven't done in years that you wish you could do again, places you've been, people you used to know.
My life is going through a stage of transition as I am doing volunteer work in order to prepare for a real job after being out of the work force for over three years. It's a complicated story I will share in upcoming posts and I encourage community members to share more about their lives.
What is the "Blump" you may ask? Well, back when I was living in Toronto, my penultimate apartment had this peculliar little storage room that kept getting flooded. After I broke up with my ex, my parents had this room fixed up and made it liveable. It was the place where I lit candles and practised my guitar music and soon frequently hosted parties with all the new friends I had met during this time period. "Why is it called "The Blump"?" you may ask? Well, at the time I was an extra in KISS movie "Detroit Rock City" and one of the scenes takes place in a restaurant called "Blump's Awful Good Burgers" I wanted a catchy name for this multi-purpose little room of mine and somehow the name "Blump" stuck and the parties I hosted were called "Blump Bashes".
Since I've been married, one thing I've really missed is having a Blump, that is a room of my own where I can practise music, create masterpieces and entertain friends. Until we get a bigger place, this community will have to serve as a Virtual Blump Bash.
