I would consider myself to be quite an analytical person. In fact, the majority of my closest friends are just as perceptive as I am. We tend to look deeply into the lives of others. We examine their situations, their relationships, everything down to their shoes and try to come up with some sort…
I’ve often wondered why difference has become somewhat of a modern “elephant in the room”, while being one of the most desired commodities in our society. We want to stick out. We want to feel something we’ve never felt before. We want to do something that none of our friends have done. We want to find that new song that keeps a smile on our face for weeks. We want to experience different emotions. We want to wear something that’ll make us look better than the rest. We want to switch lives with people we look up to. We want to have “that” idea that’ll revolutionize the world. We essentially crave difference on a daily basis, yet we’re afraid of change.
Even though we crave all this constant turnaround in our lives, there’s always a moment of hesitation when it’s time to exit our “bubble”. It’s that comfort zone that maintains a necessary amount of satisfaction and a little bit of wiggle room for additional happiness. We like the idea of being able to easily assure peace of mind. You can be the most adventurous, extraverted, outgoing, fearless person in the world; you’ll always be attracted by a state of comfort. The saying tells us that it’s better to live with remorse than with regret. We must go out there and explore a maximum amount of things because “experiences build character”. That is in fact true and we all know it. The breaking point takes place when it’s actually time to practice it and we fear a sensation of loss. I mean that would be terrible. We’d have to look into the mirror and deliberately admit that we are not “100% perfect”. It’s terrifying to think that we could actually make a mistake because there is no circumstance that could excuse being “wrong”, right?
In my opinion, the main element that really sets tumblr aside from other social networking platforms is the creative aspect of it. That’s my opinion anyway. It allows us to communicate and network through various forms of rich media that helps us relate to one another. Now I know that this all might sound a little trite for some, however I found a need to express it because of my fascination with the digital world. Many people often ask me what the advantages are of using this site as opposed to other RSS-based platforms like Blogspot. You might even subconsciously be using Tumblr for this reason as well without even realizing. It’s one of the most user friendly websites on the web that strongly encourages communication between “Tumblrs”. The people you connect with here most of the time have more in common with you than friends on Facebook. Where am I going with all of this? I frankly have no idea. This is essentially what I think about everyday due to my passion and work on the intrawebs, and I just thought I should share with you. I like to fill my blog with other things than photography and occasional iTunes dominators. Send me a THUMBS UP PICTURE IF YOU LIKE TUMBLR!
