Nostalgia

Walking Dead SDCC Proposal“There’s this deep level of sentimentality drawing back to the time they were first introduced to that film, character, story, or whatever. When they think on it, when they reflect on it, it brings up all these positive feelings and memories, and even that initial connection to what drew them there. That first sparked their excitement about that thing. Actually, psychologists have looked at nostalgia and they have found that nostalgia brings up not just positive feelings, but can raise our self esteem, our self value, and even kind of allow us to re-experience the connection with others, so it has that kind of social impact, as well!”  -Dr. Andrea Letamendi from the Ghost Busters fan documentary GhostHeads

Speaking on this subject: this photo on the left means a lot to me. Pictured is me from 2011, posing at the SDCC Walking Dead photo opp booth. The other photos are of being proposed to at the same Convention, but in the year 2016, yet still at the Walking Dead photo opp booth. I discovered The Walking Dead at SDCC 2010, which was also the year and event I met my fiancee, so this meant a lot to me. Thanks to everyone who has wished us well.
