Futhermore: “tumblr” as you experience it is defined entirely by whom you’re following. If you think tumblr doesn’t focus enough on recovery or female artists or Jason Momoa, follow some recovery/female artists/Jason Momoa blogs, and tumblr will change.
THIS. People are always going on about “tumblr is so toxic” like there’s a singular tumblr experience and we’re all helpless to escape it. UNFOLLOW PEOPLE. If someone’s putting bullshit on your dash, just unfollow them. Follow new people. It really is that simple. Tumblr is what you make it.
Same. You are under no obligation to follow people that you do not enjoy seeing on your dash. It doesn’t matter if they follow you too - your dash is your own experience on this hellsite, so curate it with blogs that make you happy.
Yeah, seriously. I’ll often tell people in real life that I have a tumblr account and they immediately say something like “Oh wow, that site is so dramatic/toxic/etc… how do you deal with it? =/”
I follow like….. a horse blog, four aesthetic blogs and some neat writers and that’s it. It’s really chill. Tumblr can be a chill place if you craft it to be a chill place, just like any other social circle. It’s all about who you surround yourself with. Just like in real life.
Most people I know had that one movie as a kid; that one movie that they would watch it over and over and over to the resigned acceptance of their parents. I’ve always thought that movie says something about a person. What was your movie?
Early on it was Aladdin and the King of Thieves; a little later it was Kiki’s Delivery Service and Ladyhawke.
@nekojirou… thank you so much for this one strand of hair on Xjena’s head. This one, single, pixel-wide strand of hair which makes it possible to align all of her text box icons without headaches…… thank you.
So I’ve got a lot of drafts saved that have been sitting there for years. I’ve started to go through and clear them out, but I noticed that a lot of them are marked as sensitive even though they’re completely SFW. Like photosets of coin sculptures.
I also noticed that even though I don’t own the original post, I can still request a review, since it’s “my” draft. So I’ve been doing that. I’ve done about ten now, and every single one has gotten un-marked.
I’ll count this as my good deed for the week, I guess?

So fun fact, I actually bought a sad little blue cactus at my local Kroger a few years ago FULLY EXPECTING it to die because it had been heavily dyed. I placed it in the window of my room at the time, which was an upstairs attic that got godawful hot during the day, and waited.
It did nothing but survive for the first year. The second year, it put out a single, tiny, little bud which was a normal, green color. In excitement, I bought it a new pot…. and promptly dropped it while repotting. A number of its old blue limbs broke off. I thought for sure that the shock would be the end of it, but I kept trying.
This is it today, three years later.
This is its second pot and you can see it already needs another. It cannibalized its old blue self and is growing with a passion I can’t keep up with. I even put some of the trimmings in a few other pots I had and look, they started fuckin’ sprouting too.
The moral of the story here is that if you feel like trying to save one of these poor dyed cacti, give it a shot. Maybe nothing will come of it, but maybe you’ll get a badass zombie cactus who will give you lots of zombie cactus offshoots you can give to your friends.
