Look, I love scrolling through the endless hilarious text posts and inspirational quotes and hipster photography as much as the next person, but the reality is that for the past few weeks, when I go to bed with the realization that I did nothing but sit on Tumblr all day, I feel miserable.
For 9 months out of this past year, I lived in third world countries, sleeping in tents and on floors and in truck beds and under the stars and just about anywhere else you could think of.
I didn’t have wifi most of the time.
So I spent my days doing ministry and spending time with my team mates and cooking my food over fires and just being with God. And yeah, there were days when I wanted nothing more than to be in my memory foam bed, within my insulated walls, covered in 5 blankets and 10 pillows, my laptop on my stomach and my ice cream in my bowl.
But for the vast majority of my time on the field, I was happier than I had ever been in my life. Almost every night, I would crawl into my tent, climb into my sleeping bag, and close my eyes with a smile across my face because it had been a good day and I would soon wake to another good day.
So now, I’ve been home for 2 months, and all I’ve done is scroll through Tumblr and Pinterest every day. And hey, I don’t have to tell you guys how unreasonably entertaining that is.
But for the past few weeks, I haven’t gone to bed with that smile on my face, that genuine feeling of total happiness that I had when I was living out of a backpack and and not living for myself.
So basically, I’m gunna not be on Tumblr so much anymore. Of course, knowing me, I’ll probs still pop in here and there. But I’ll call this a success if I can get myself to stay away for good.
That said, I’ve met a lot of really awesome people here, and I really don’t want to loose touch with y’all. So feel free to add me on facebook.
So yeah, that’s all.
Reasons why October is the best month:
- Cold but dry weather
- Everything is pretty colours
- Pumpkin pie
- Pumpkin coffee
- Everything being made to look spooky
- Horror movies on TV all the time
- Jumper weather
- Dressing up as scary things
- Hot drinks
- Lots of sweets
The smell of dying leaves
If u don’t like October get the FUCK outta my house
i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake
i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.
