To be honest, I kinda forgot I had a tumblr. Things got really crazy around Christmas last year, and my daily routine of logging onto tumblr kind of faded away. But. I’m in a new city, with a fresh start as of a month and a half ago, and I’m still getting settled…Which means applying to jobs furiously, spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to be social again, and trying to find theatre opportunities when it is nowhere near audition season.
I know it won’t be, soon enough. I have an audition next month for a cabaret act in Old City, and there is a position with a publishing company that seems to have an interest in me (will hear back within two weeks). But right now, things are slow. I don’t really feel like I have a purpose, and that feeling sucks. Self doubt is slowly creeping in.
Since not spending time on Tumblr, I spent more time on other websites that I find interesting. Thing is, a lot of them focus on world issues that get me revved up, and reading a lot of the stuff on facebook or thoughtcatalog, or other social media sites/blogs made me sad about the world we live in. (NOTE TO SELF: NEVER READ THE COMMENTS.) A lot of issues that are in the media spotlight hit close to home, and it’s hard to see that on my news feed every day. It’s exhausting. So I’m changing it.
Tumblr always acted as a source of positivity for me. Sure, I could write a lot about how shitty I felt about the goings on in my life (and I did), but I could also reblog things that spoke to me or made me feel happy. And it made a difference. I felt happier, and more true to myself. Writing always make me feel better and I feel like a load has been taken off of my chest when I get everything down on my computer screen/paper. It’s all very therapeutic.
So that is why I’m getting started again. New home, and new opportunities to create a life that I’m happy with. Why spend time getting bogged down in things that are only going to make me feel negative?
So, Tumblr: Gimmie all the positive stuff you’ve got!
