💻 Dear Tumblr, 💻
Thank you for the “lets put a galaxy print on everything” phase:
Thank you for turning me into a triangle obsessed, moustache-loving hipster:
Thank you for introducing me to the pants I would religiously wear for the next two years:
But, most importantly; thank you for being an escape when I needed it most.
As corny/ as it must silly as it may sound, Tumblr is more than just an outdated version Pinterest. It’s a place where you not only find yourself but you also find your people/homies/baes… whatever you want to call them.
Luckily I found mine when I was at my worst. Stuck at boarding school, depressed, lonely, lost and confused; logging onto tumblr was always the highlight of my day, a way of escaping from the shithole that was my senior year of highschool. So I just wanted to dedicate a blog post to thanking Tumblr for all the ways it helped me become the woman I am today!
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet so many amazing and some… not so amazing people (lol). Thank you for helping me realise that I deserve nothing but the best; in a world where you have to make friends with who is given to you at that certain time and place, Tumblr was an amazing space for me to meet people just like me; people who are a little bit anxious, a little bit shy, a whole lot creative and people who are always there for you no matter what timezone they live in. Thank you to my Tumblr ladies who have always been there for me! (you know who you are)
Thank you for the relationships that you’ve given me, one that lasted a while and one that was a bit all over the place. They have both taught me a lot about myself, and have made me realise what I need/want and deserve in a partner. The on and off fling (if you could even call it that) left me in a really bad place, for a really long time. Being strung along for two years ain’t fun.. and from this I learned to never fall for a fuckboy. But thanks to you, I now have the best partner I could have ever wished for.
Thank you for constantly keeping me inspired, you shaped the way I look at the world and the things that I create. Thank you for the endless amounts of creative imagery that would inspire me to keep going and to never give up on my dreams. (And for helping me not feel so scared about failing at life)
Thank you for making me a better and more open minded person. There are so many people that still don’t accept others for being different. Being surrounded by such an accepting community from the age of 15 up until now, I have learned to love people for who they are… even if you’re into pastel goth, I don't judge.
So to end off this incredibly cheesy letter, I just wanted to say that I don't know where I would be or who I would be without this silly little website. It feels good to get some things off my chest and it feels good to thank those who deserve it! I LUV U TUMBLR
p.s. if you think any of these points are about you.. they probably are so.. heyyy girl haiii
