what was it like for you to move out from your family? im going to move it in like half a year and im already so anxious about it...
it’s only been two weeks for me so I can’t tell you how you’re gonna feel after idk a year or two and obviously everyone experiences life differently but for me personally the first week wasn’t great. I mean I was already extremely emotional because I was pmsing and also I wasn’t able to take my cat with me to the apartment but yeah the first week was just weird and I spent most of it crying. I didn’t know anybody obviously and I’ve never been to this town before so I was really lost and my two flatmates didn’t and still don’t talk to me really so I just felt isolated. I’m not good at coping with new situations but now that I’ve met some really nice people and kind of got used to everything it’s really not so bad. I’m enjoying college actually. I mean I don’t know what your situation is, if you’re moving out to go to college as well or just in general but it’s really not the end of the world once you get used to everything. You’ll be fine, I mean it.
“Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable.”—
I feel like in certain circles on tumblr there’s this unspoken rule in people’s heads where it’s like you can’t unfollow someone because idk you’re in a mutual or they have a large following or whatever even though their content isn’t of interest to you anymore and it’s like why? this isn’t anything serious it’s supposed to be for you seriously if there’s anyone who feels like they don’t want to see my posts anymore because there’s too much text or whatever then that’s fine!!! you do you!!! make sure your dashboard is a positive space for you!!!!
