I just went through over 100 pages of Tumblr updates that I missed over the past 4-5 days due to studying. Conclusion? I didn’t miss much and I need to start unfollowing some motherfuckers lol.
Just had a weird thought. You know how Tumblr has instant notifications on the bottom right hand corner when you get a new note such as a like or a reblog or a reply? What if you kept liking and unliking the same post from somebody? Would it keep popping up on that person’s dash if they’re also currently logged in to Tumblr? Hmm…
I’ve always seen Tumblr as a place of refuge when I just want to either escape for a little while or just vent about life. I used to write in a journal relatively frequently, but Tumblr has kind of replaced it. I’m not sure why because I had a journal while I had a Xanga back in the day (remember Xanga? I LOVED that thing) and I wrote wayyyyy more on that than I ever did on Tumblr. I do feel that I’ve lost something writing in my journal (I’m currently on my second journal after completely filling up the first) vs. writing on my Tumblr. It’s not that I’m ever untruthful on here, but to borrow a line from Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit movie: “While I can honestly say I told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it.” Whereas my journal was a place for my deepest thoughts and desires that were only for me, I don’t exactly put out everything I’m thinking/feeling on my Tumblr. Some things you just have to keep private and to yourself, you know? Can’t be putting your business out on the street like that lol. Whereas I used to be able to pour out my feelings into my journal, now I just have my Tumblr which is great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just a little different.
I fucking hate this niggah.., LMFAOOOO @inezco
I have to reblog just to have these texts forever hahaha.
MY 10,000TH POST ON TUMBLR!!! Oh what a joy it has been these past four years, so much time wasted LOL j/k you know I love you Tumblr. Anyways, for my 10,000th post I thought I’d shared something extremely personal to me. Those of you who have followed me throughout the years may know I love The Simpsons, how Harry Potter is my life haha, that Kristen Stewart is my fiancee, the MOVIES I love, what kind of music I listen to, etc. but I don’t get all that personal on here. I do from time to time but for the most part I just like keeping some parts of my life private (no need to put everything out there, you know?). However, this is a special occasion and I’d been meaning to put up this song for a while now and now seems like the right moment.
A friend’s recent similar scenario reminded me of this down time in 2012 for me. I pretty much never write songs anymore, but at the time I felt it would be good to put my feelings down on pen and paper and record it. It’s probably the most personal song I’ve ever made and you can hear it just by the inflection of my voice how fresh the pain was. I’m going to share it now because A) I’m far removed from that moment in my life and I’m perfectly fine now (honest!) and B) only like 3 people who know me in real life and what actually happened follow my blog lol.
I wanted to post this song last year, but never found the courage to. So here’s what I wrote this past summer to accompany this track:
“I haven’t felt the urge to actually write a song in a long time. Obviously this song is very personal to me because it explains to a lot of the things that I’ve been going through lately. It’s just really disheartening when you really like someone and you think there’s something there, only to be utterly crushed when you have to find shit out from other people and realize they didn’t even have the courage to say it to your face. I put my heart out there and I got hurt, but it’s not going to stop me from opening up in the future, maybe just a bit more cautiously. Now that the summer’s here and I don’t have nursing school to keep me busy and distracted, it’s all I can seem to think about nowadays. And even when I do keep myself busy and keep my mind off of her, when I lay down to sleep at night and I’m alone with my thoughts these are the things that run through my mind.”
In addition to that above, I also ended up tearing my ACL and meniscus like… a few weeks later and I literally had to just sit in bed and torture myself with those thoughts for months on end. Needless to say, last summer REALLY sucked for me lol.
And if you’re curious as to what instrumental this is, I recorded this over Childish Gambino’s song “So Fly” off his Culdesac album, which is an amazing song that you should listen to and I hope I didn’t ruin it by recording this over his beat hahah.
The audio recording of this song is less than perfect to say the least haha, I had to record it through my laptop mic since it’s been a LONG time since I’ve had access to an actual recording studio for music. So I’ve put up the lyrics for the song after the “read more” break.
I realize that this kind of a downer post to make my 10,000th post haha, but I really see it as a new beginning and letting go of that portion of my life. I just want all my followers to know that no matter how long you’ve been following me for - a month, a year, since the beginning - thank you for reading, liking, and reblogging because it truly does warm my heart!
a couple of tumblr functions if you didn’t know about them:
- you can make tags on an individual blog display from the earliest to latest post by adding /chrono to the end, for example: http://gameofgifs.tumblr.com/tagged/season_202/chrono
- you can search through a tumblog by date using “http://username.tumblr.com/day/YEAR/MONTH/DAY”, for example: http://gameofgifs.tumblr.com/day/2012/09/16
- you can view just the photo posts on your dashboard in mosaic form by going to http://www.tumblr.com/photos
- you can save ask messages to your queue or drafts by hovering your mouse over the publish button and holding down “alt”, which will bring up alternative options
- by using the url “http://www.tumblr.com/show/type of post” you can filter your dash, for example “http://www.tumblr.com/show/photos” will show only photos
- you can retrieve previously used themes via the theme recovery page: http://www.tumblr.com/themes/recover
- when reblogging a long text post (like this one!), click on the “as” at the top of the post to reblog as a text post, link or quote
Indeed. Oh the woes of being a Hufflepuff. *sigh*
Can I just take a quick moment to say that I really hate the new Tumblr functionality as far as replies go? You can’t just copy and paste to respond to replies on your posts. Not to mention the fact that responding this way you can’t even click to get to the original post to see what they were replying to. Bah!
tumblr makes me want to watch a lot of movies and read a lot of books but i dont have time because of tumblr

WOW I HAVE NO LIFE! LMFAO
I seem to hit these milestones a lot faster than I should be. What would I freakin’ do without Tumblr? Thanks to all my followers who stuck around even as my blog deteriorated in quality lol. You guys help me keep my sanity in this world gone mad. Especially in the past 3 months when I’ve had some of my lowest lows following my knee injury and subsequent surgery (wow, did I really injure my knee over three months ago?). Tumblr has been a constant source of pure hilarity, entertainment, and a place to just vent my thoughts and frustrations. So again, thanks a million and keep on Tumblrin’!
