Alright, I’m going to bed which means my tumblr time is up for however long I end up leaving. If you still wanted to arrange communication stuff then email me :) Adios again amigos.
Aww thanks dear!! I do plan to continue doing advice in whichever way people choose (all listed in my long post) and hope people will feel free to take advantage of that. It’s completely welcome, I promise.
VIVE LA LIZISM!!!
I actually do know what you’re talking about but no I don’t have one. I have a generic American accent like the kind of thing you’d hear on a TV show kind of thing
Aww omg thanks man! if you want to talk to me outside that’s fine too! Email me or something, I’m getting off here soon.also I didn’t mean to answer this publicly sorry yo
No it’s ok, quit apologizing babe! I’m sure you’re fine
I DONT WANT TO SAY BECAUSE OBVIOUS REASONS BUT I’LL JUST SAY NORTH OF ATLANTA IN A GENERIC LOOKING SUBURB
Georgia, USA. To demonstrate my feelings about this, here’s some slides from a powerpoint I made a while back:
So… I’m getting off tumblr. For real this time. Not spending less time on it, I mean really proper getting off. Still not deleting my account, but I won’t be getting on it at all, at least not for a long while. This is hard to do as I’ve been on here for what seems like forever, but I think it’s the right time. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s honestly become like an addiction. It’s already gotten waaay out of hand, but I need to get my shit together before all this gets any worse. Just vowing to put other things first or get on here less hasn’t worked, despite many attempts. At this point, it’s go big or go home. So I won’t be on here at all. Weekends, nights, holidays, nada.
And I’ll miss it. I’m going to. It’s a good place to learn about the stuff that’s going on in the world that the media doesn’t cover, funny shit, all that. Most of the things I find myself laughing at during the day at random times are things from here, so that’s difficult. But mostly I think I’ve got some pretty rockin followers. So if we’re friends on here, or if you want to be or idk whatever man, I want to keep in touch, just not over tumblr. My email (I promise) is email@example.com. If we’re amigos, feel free to send me your facebook, phone numbers (although PLZ only do that one if you live in the US), kik, whatever you want. I don’t even care if we’ve only talked like once or never, that’s ok! Seriously, don’t be afraid to do that! I promise you aren’t annoying me I’ll probably think i’m annoying you. Also, I’ve done advice here before, and I do want to continue doing that, especially the questions regarding gender/sexuality. If you ever need help or somebody to talk to, please, please, don’t be afraid to talk to me there!
But I do definitely want to explain why I’m leaving completely. First, like I said, it’s getting ridiculous. Last summer I spent just endless amounts of time on here (at that point I was still in the AHH TUMBLR IS GR8 I LVOE TUMBLR phase) thinking that I’ll just get off when school starts, problem solved. Except, now it’s a year later and hardly anything has changed. You know it’s really a problem when you start formulating your thoughts as text posts. When it gets to that point.. it’s gonna take a long time to break that habit. Tumblr also seems to have this very specific mindset that everyone supposedly needs to be in. And while I agree with just about all of it, I think it’s also a little toxic and I’ve found it’s making me overcritical of everything and I don’t like that. Even if the internet is out, and my dash is white squares, I continue scrolling as if nothing is different. It hardly seems to matter what I’m looking at. Tumblr usually involves very little actual thought, and I think that’s what’s so addictive (and destructive) about it. So during the school year even on nights when I had a fuckload to do, nothing would get done because I was lounging around for hours on this website. And that’s why I just can’t let myself do that now.
I am going to be busy as fuck next year, holy mother of baLLS. If you think I’m exaggerating, I’m taking all difficult classes as opposed to the easy slack ones I’ve done in the past (one AP and all honors except for math). On top of that I’m also starting piano lessons along with sewing classes because I want to learn to make clothes. It’s junior year so I’ll be taking the SAT in both the fall and spring. I was recommended for this thing my state has called Governor’s Honors Program for Spanish and it’s a huge deal (apparently) to be nominated so I’ll have a hard exam for that. Most people are recommended after two years and I’ve only taken one which means I’m gonna have to get way ahead and holy cow just writing this is stressing me out alksdjfldsk. I have a new puppy who needs to be taken care of. I teach myself Italian and want to continue doing that. I might also might get a job and maybe more classes and lessons and things wow I’m a busy bee. Also I think I really do need to start getting out and interacting with people more. (Despite all the jokes I make about it, I think it really is a problem that I need to work on and “never leaving the house omg” just isn’t a healthy mindset, and, even if it’s not intentional, I think it’s a bit contagious here.) So you can see how I can’t really sit around on here all day anymore. I’m also a perfectionist, and if I don’t excel in all those things I feel stupid and let’s just say it makes for a very unhappy Liz. I believe that I can do all of it, I just can’t have tumblr in there as well.
I could go on and on but I’m feeling more and more silly as I write this thing, I feel like I’m writing an essay. Once again, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TALK TO ME OUTSIDE OF TUMBLR! I’m not sure when I’ll be back.
(PS I’m gonna stay logged in for tonight to see replies and get everything squared away and whatnot.)
oohhh ok! (i got on real fast today to get the sugar scrub recipe.)
also about the old style thing, i really don’t think that there IS a new style or old style. my blog has been through 194394890 different stages (i started out as a harry potter blogger, then fandom, then funny, there’s been all kinds of stuff). what i blog runs parallel to what i’m interested in so of course it’s gonna change sometimes. i still reblog and post all the same stuff i always have, there’s jsut pretty pictures mixed in there
