when i discovered tumblr right before college i found a new lens to view the world in. i grew deeper, more creative, more open minded but the platform and it’s themes (among content not layouts) also drove me to more hedonistic, less mature, and more vapid pursuits.
the influence on tumblr on the world around me grew substantially as time went on and its influence on my own tastes, perspectives and personality grew as well. I love tumblr and the places it has taken me along my life’s journey, and the place it became for me when i needed sanctuary, or just a quiet spot in my life to think. What I’ve collected in this blog is a good encapsulation of the many growths and changes that have encompassed the last 5 years of my life.
I think the greatest lesson I learned from tumblr is: not only is a picture worth a thousand words, but the world we live is filled with pictures. I’m going to continue blogging on a new tumblr, but posts are going to be more personal in nature. I suppose I’m hoping to help myself grow as a person here the way I did before, but this time less fashionably but with substance and reflection.
I’m still a work in progress, but this blog is not. It’s time to open a new chapter.
longest day ever. drugs are no joke. :(
