Hey, Weirdos! Today I thought I'd discuss a topic that's very close to my heart...well...maybe not so much. Let me rephrase that.
Today I'm discussing a topic that has somehow shoved itself into my life recently: Tumblr VS Everything Else.
Tumblr has taken the world by storm recently, and I dare say that every person I know has one. So, with nothing better to do, I tried it out. Here's how it went...
No, I'm not joking.
I don't understand why exactly so many people find such an appeal in it, because it did more to annoy me than entertain me. Setting it up was a pain, getting the blog together was a pain, and just reading my feed was a pain. Something about the layout, the controls and the style made me want to pull my hair out. Like I've said, I'm very picky, and honestly what I could do on Tumblr I can already do on Pinterest, Twitter and here, and I'm not willing to give up any of those!
I love my Twitter for its simple 180 character limit, Pinterest for its inspiration and hours of entertainment in so many forms, and here, Weebly, for my real blog and the ability to do what I want without feeling the urge to scream at random intervals. Trying to put all three together as one was just an overload for me, and I couldn't handle it.
But who am I to say what you guys like. I'm weird, I like what I like. and so do you. Perhaps you enjoy Tumblr, but it's not my thing. It succeeded in tumbling my brain.
Actually no. What I wanted was a group of 16-21 year-olds, but what I got was a group of 12-15 year-olds, and I'm the only 17 year old.
Now before you start ripping on me for hating on middle schoolers, let me make one thing clear: I don't think badly of them in any way. What I'm saying is that our brains are working very differently at these stages and I want to be with people who can better relate to what I'm trying to convey in my books. 7th, 8th and 9th graders trying to help me, a 12th grader, is a little ridiculous. The education levels are just too far apart, especially since I'm in AP English. Already I've picked up on at least half of them being bad spellers, which is a pet peeve of mine.
However...(sigh) there's a reason my Aptitude test revealed that I'm Amity, and I'd hate to leave my cabin with only 7 days left until writing begins. I'll just have to make a mental note for next year.
That's all for now! I'm sure I'll have a book review out for you in a week or two, depending on how Camp Nano treats me, and how hectic my schedule is.
As always: Stay Weird!
