I’m sorry for not being around. I just haven’t been feeling tumblr for awhile.
Honestly, I’m really burnt out on it. It’s been four years since I’ve been on here, and to be blunt, I don’t like how it’s evolved in that time. It used to be a great place for feminism and talking about what was wrong with the world. Now, honestly, there’s a trace of that left, but I feel like it’s become a hotbed for extremists, or a huge echoing chamber. I used to have some killer discussions here, but now, it feels like there’s no room to agree or disagree—it’s this way, or leave. I’ve mostly relocated to reddit, tbh. While there are huge swatches of problematic things there, I’ve been occupying my time in trying to make a corner of it a safer place, and also getting more grey hair by trying to change a few minds. And it just feels like I’m getting something accomplished more than just yelling the same opinions over and over. Y’all know what I’m about.
I’m still going to be around, but I’m probably going to end up changing the shift of this blog if I ever return to full time blogging. On top of my feelings about the site, I’ve been trying to get into a doctorate program, have returned to full time graduate school, and have been discovering life outside the computer. I’ve had an honest to blog Internet addiction since I was 12—that is half of my life. It’s been wonderful breaking it. Plus after the aftermath of leaving an abusive relationship/dealing with the aftermath of that, it’s been honestly hard to maintain an online presence in the one place where The Asshole can still keep tabs on me.
If I know you in real life: I am never too busy for y’all. Please feel free to hit me up anywhere if you need me.
