Okay well, I suppose this was rather clear already, but I’m taking a Tumblr hiatus for an unspecified amount of time.
I’ve been starting to feel ever more like Tumblr is far too much of a poisonous environment for me in my current state of mind. I’m obviously not talking about the friends I’ve made here, because I am so glad I got to meet you (some of you even in person), but about the high school-like behaviour I see around this site - by which I mean judgmental, exclusive, hateful, (passive-)aggressive, etcetera, etcetera.
Though I have never been on the receiving end of anonymous hate, I’ve often had my words misinterpreted based on an assumption about my ethnicity, sexuality or personal beliefs. I subscribe to the right every single individual has to their own opinion, but the pervading lack of empathy and in most cases even common sense is just not something I want to put up with any longer.
An additional reason is that I’m hoping to graduate in a month, and Tumblr is just a time- and energy sink I can’t afford any longer. (I will still be active on my MtG rp accounts, because that is typically a fun way to waste an hour or so of my time in the evenings, without too much drama.)
Since I don’t know if and when I’ll be back, it’s been great getting to know all you wonderful people, and thanks for all the good times. Most of you I have on Facebook so I’ll see you around there in any case.
And to my fellow AP admins: I am so so sorry for the inactivity; once I finally have my BA I do plan on becoming a hell of a lot more active again on the blog, and in the meanwhile I’ll try and fatten up the queue some.
