Happy Birthday to my Tumblr!

I started my first blog not-coincidently during my first year of college. It was a tumblr account and I used it to log of my thoughts and fancies. Tumblr is a popular venue for people who are fans of specific shows, music, movies, people, etc. It is also notorious for being a site of the hipsters and youth; a place for angsty teens to vent about their woeful lives.

I now have many a blog and social medias account, and I use them each purposefully according to their best qualities. Tumblr is where I collect photo and street style inspiration, but during my college years it served as a window into the culture of the world around me while I attended a conservative christian school, it was also where I first saw the boom of memes, and learned the art of a vsco filter before vsco was even a word.

Despite the endless hours of late night scrolling I always felt a slight disconnect from tumblr; being a happier more upbeat person and all. I know, life is rough. On the other hand, I found tumblr was a comforting shoulder to lean on whenever I did need to vent or share my more personal feelings.

Four years later I can conclude that my tumblr served as an incredible log of my college experience, but more importantly it was a window into the transformational years of my young adult life. Just like any one who keeps a journal, we can admit how interesting it is to look back on entries. While most posts were about people and photos I liked, a handful were very personal. I invite you to explore my tumblr archives, and reminisce just as I have today, on it’s four-year old birthday.
