i’ve been taking a much-needed break from tumblr for the past month and i figured i should probably stop in and give a bit of an update on why i left tumblr and why i’m not going to be coming back to this blog in particular.
tumblr has always been a really cool community to be a part of, but i find that sometimes it’s too exclusive and limiting?? i don’t know how to articulate my feelings for this website other than to say that.
what i mean is, i guess, i have too many loves in life for tumblr to feel like a comfortable space for me anymore. i love games and i love anime and i love plants and i love superheroes and star trek and writing and reading classic novels and doing yoga and advocating for vegan/vegetarianism and learning about feminism and human rights issues.
though many of the sects of tumblr are very accepting, it does feel a little clique-y and highschool: like people with certain interests band together and cut out anyone who has multiple interests. thus, i feel like i can’t accurately represent all of my interests on my blog out of fear of losing followers or being frowned upon. which is horrible and terrible and unhealthy!! people should be permitted to love and broadcast the things they love in their own spaces on the internet without fear of ridicule.
i’m not going to be coming back to this blog, so feel free to unfollow!! i’ll probably be making another, more personal blog later on, but for now, adieu :^)
if you tell a cutie they “remind you of the babe,” and they do not respond appropriately, they’re not the one. walk away.
