i tumblr

So I made a tumblr account the other day.. Turns out peer pressure never truly ends after you kiss your teen years goodbye. I'm kidding. I actually did it because I was bored and looking for more reasons to procrastinate the far more important things I had to do.


It is actually very fun and I came across a lot of nice stuff. But the reason why I didn't like it before (and still don't approve of much :p) is because there's no individuality whatsoever.
Only a small part of tumblr users take pictures or write posts themselves, the majority (including yours truly) just reblog.

This is why I like it in here. Even though I don't blog so often anymore but it is me. The drama, the meaninglessness, the insanity, the silliness, the greatness, whatever you find here is all me.

Even reading my old posts, which, to be honest, I almost never do because I'm afraid to stumble upon embarrassing things I might have found funny or worth posting back then. Even doing that takes me back to the moment I wrote that post. I remember where I was sitting, what I was thinking, and how I was feeling when I wrote it.
I laugh at my silly concerns which seemed serious back then, realize how awesome it was to be going through a new exciting experience, frown and go 'really, Hind?' over some posts.. You know.

Anyway, all that doesn't mean you shouldn't follow me on tumblr and make me feel special and loved :D go ahead now..

Salaam Hind,

I love following different tumblrs, but have yet to create my own (mainly because I don't want to be stuck reblogging either and would rather make my own contributions like I do in blogger).

I will definitely check yours out though. =)

LOL at "I'm afraid to stumble upon embarrassing things I might have found funny or worth posting back then." That's so true even with me! I should stop, but I always go back to the very first posts I wrote and think "wow how embarrassing! People actually kept returning to my blog after reading that?"
I don't know much about Tumblr, but each time I enter someones' Tumblr it's always different in a way. Anything they reblog tells me more about them. Like a person who reblogs cupcakes almost all the time, and another who reblogs cars, and others who reblog quotes. So maybe it's not original, but there are definite individuality in each Tumblr.
Having said that, it's not the same as having a blog :D
