Album: PTX, Vol. III
When someone expects me to blindly stride into a childish trap, and electrocute myself.
I’m glad your eyes are healing well!!! I turn 26 this year, it makes me feel better to know I’m not the only one over like 22 on my dash :’)
there are a few of us here! tumblr can definitely make me feel suuuuper ancient, though. like, honestly, the demographics here are probably the same as they were on LJ, it’s just that i’m closer to the upper end now - on LJ i was always one of the younger ones in my circle, and now on tumblr i’m one of the older ones, but the setup is probably similar…i’ve just switched places. idk.
but all the YOUNG’UNS ([shakes cane]) i follow are so super chill and mature and awesome and they make me really hypercritical of how awful i was when i was like 13 - 20 in comparison. maybe it’s because tumblr is more about sharing ideas and LJ was more sort of insular?
i guess there’s a difference between having a diary that you share with a few people you know and trust (who probably have similar life experience and opinions) and, like, holding up what essentially amounts to a scrapbook of everything you think, feel, agree and disagree with, and also the scrapbook is 100% public and shared with LITERALLY EVERYONE, and all those people can contribute to the scrapbook too, and maybe some people have more, like, scrapbooking experience than you, and you’re like, “wow, i would never have thought of putting that in my scrapbook, but i like that it’s there,” and this is a weird metaphor and it’s kind of going off the rails, but maybe that makes sense????
anyway, i think the point is that i waffle between being like “i’m so OLD and everything is THE WORST” and forgetting about how old i am and just being super impressed that teenagers today are way cooler than i was at their age.
