it is my three-year tumblr anniversary soon… and it’s with a painfully heavy heart that i announce that today, i’m gonna log off indefinitely.
this isn’t an easy decision. tumblr has been a major part of my life for, well, the last three years, since i was in grade nine - that’s a lot of life and a lot of learning in one place. but as many of you may have noticed, i’ve got more serious about my faith in the last few months, and i’ve been thinking, and i think that tumblr is taking up a place in my life that i really should be filling with more important stuff. that sounds so trite, but every time i sit down to think, in real life, more often than not my mind wanders to the low common denominator provided by tumblr and a confused white-noise mess of wanting the kind of popularity and mass approval the internet offers… that’s as well as i can explain it. i’m hoping that i can get rid of it somewhat by going away and focussing my time on more healthy things.
guys, you know the feeling - i want to write properly again, i want to read properly again, i want to regain my attention span… i always intended to leave this place once i was mature enough to go my own way, and i think i’ve reached that point.
please, if you want to keep up with me, i absolutely invite you to ask for my facebook. please do. there’s a little lump in my throat as i write this. i will miss everything i found here: the humour, the pretty things, the genuine inspiration, the good times, the friends, the strong community, even the thoughts and awareness of stuff that it wasn’t really pleasant to learn about but that i needed to see. i will miss having this space to call home.
i love you all to death. take care without me, okay?? please take care. know that i love every single one of you and having you along for the ride made everything that much better. and who knows - i might blog with you again at some point. actually, mary and i are going to launch a christian blog at some point and i’ll let you know how that develops. and ofc i’ll be on again in july to post pictures of her and me hanging out. that kind of stuff. but otherwise, this is goodbye… i’ll miss you.
grace and peace to you, my friends. keep remembering space is out there.
