Hey, everyone— as I mentioned in my last post, I’m planning to take some time off tumblr. There are three reasons: a) I tend to get into arguments on tumblr. I don’t enjoy that, and I don’t like the idea of people I know from the fc, or grad schools in the future, seeing that side of me either. And it’s not that hard to connect my tumblr to my irl self. b) Partly as a defensive reaction to those arguments and partly because I think we kind of egg each other on here, I say things about zuka and my lady on here that I really don’t think are appropriate. (That is, there are times when I get in arguments over comments I make that I think are not that bad, but there are also things I think I shouldn’t say, pictures I shouldn’t post, etc.) It’s true that people who haven’t been involved much with the Japanese fandom don’t always know what a small world it is. There are siennes who even pay attention to what English-speaking fans say about them online, and any of them or any fc-affiliated people theoretically could if they wanted to (there’s just not much reason they should want to, especially with the whole out-of-control Japanese online fandom to worry about first). So I don’t want to say anything hurtful, just in case. And c) the most important reason: I’m getting ready to move, going to Takarazuka-shi by bus and back three weekends in a row, and applying to grad schools. I’m ridiculously busy, and tumblr is an addictive time sink.
But, I do like having a community of zuka fans to chat with, so if you’re someone I talk with on here please send me a message and we can keep in touch on fb or skype or something. Or if we already have each other added there but usually talk on here, I hope you’ll say hi from time to time.
