Minnie Mouse’s Instagram Page Is Beyond Cute

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

The Instagram game just got real, guys. Minnie Mouse (you read that right), the world’s most famous lady mouse and hair accessory icon, has just created her own Instagram account. She launched the page on Monday, March 25, in time for the iconic character’s 90th birthday. Since then our little Minnie has broken all Instagram laws by posting NINE photos in just one day. At the time of launching, she has racked up more than 12,000 followers. And to top that off, she is only following 3 accounts: Minnie Style, Disney, and M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E. So, yeah, she’s technically a senior citizen, but Minnie is definitely winning at Instagram.

 

The first post to Minnie Mouse’s account shows her in the early illustration phase. She is wearing a blue polka dot bloomer, a red bow, and yellow heels standing against a scrapbook-esque background with her signature and a flower. The caption reads, “From me, to all of you! Follow along for more joy…and polka dots. 😉 XO, Minnie.”

What’s even more impressive than a mouse having her very own Instagram page is the fact that she has 11 permanent stories each with their own matching title tiles. One is designated for style essentials, which is for Minnie a flower, red hat, polka dot shirt, and yellow pumps. There is a BFF section, which has photos of Daisy, Donald Duck, and Mickey. The most unexpected story is the one labeled “Self Care.” It features some tips such as finding joy in the little things, spending time outdoors, and laughing often. It is true what they say: with age comes wisdom, and this mouse is 90 so we’re going to take her tips.

 

It actually makes sense that a 90-year-old cartoon mouse would want an Instagram profile. She already has everything an icon could ever want, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Being the cute, bubbly cartoon we all know and love, Minnie just wants to post some content that is going to brighten your day.
