Recently, I’ve been leaning up my tumblr page. It was something I started after I graduated college. Like many people, I posted gifs, memes and quotes. I was never a regular poster, and popped in months at a time. Still, its been interesting to read some of things I posted. It seemed like, I was giving myself pep talks and encouragement through social media.
Just a brief sample:
I’m sure many people who graduated from college have this feeling at some point.
Don’t count on people and things to make you happy.
Change is hard, but it is natural and normal, and often necessary.
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”
Social media has been a prominent part of our culture since I graduated high school. The beauty in social media is that you can see how much you have changed by something as simple as the things you post. They may seem mundane at the time, but later on, they may very well, be part of a larger story.
My tumblr posts were a small trip into where I was at that time. Alot has changed since I reblogged those messages, but so much of the message still applies.
