About two hours ago, I have been practically staring at the little calendar on my bedroom wall trying to figure out what was so special about this day..and then it hit me.
Today is May 23rd 2011 and this has been my first year on Tumblr.
Forgive me. I’m already having a lovely trip to memory lane. Like who does not love Nostalgia. So yes, I tried to remember how and why did I sign up. How? It was suggested by my close-friend-since-birth. She’d been telling me about it but, indifferent as I was, it took me months before I finally decided to set up my own Tumblog.
And the obvious question, “Why?”
First, I created this blog for myself…and nobody else. This is an extension of myself, my inner self, my Reality. This is my mood-board, where I place my ideas and ideals alike. I would like to consider this Tumblog as my own universe, a favorable glimpse of my utopia. This is my retreat, my haven. My freedom.
Several people had been asking about my blog URL and my blog’s title, like how did I come up with it and the reason behind each word. Well I’ve had different ideas about my tumblr URL and possible blog titles since day 1. I chose vainvirgin because vanity plays a significant role in this blog. Here, vanity translates to “beauty”, so I post the things (and people) I find beautiful. But as I’ve always been saying, I’m always flexible about my definition of beautiful.
Second, I had three blog titles: A Fateful Dissonance being the most recent..never mind the first two. I’ve never been good at explaining my blog title since I find it quite abstract itself and I think it is self-explanatory, but nevertheless, I will try. I suppose I came up with this title after realizing that I post whatever I want and mood I have at the moment. The word “dissonance” is synonymous to chaos, discord and incongruity. It is an unrestful state of mind, needing of completion. Imperfection. Thus A Fateful Dissonance is a mere example of intervals, a harmonious discord..and a polarity of preferences.
Lastly, must I forget my
followers, my lovelies? Never.
Since most of you are girls, I say: “Merci beaucoup mes cheries!” But honestly, I couldn’t thank you enough..especially those sprightly ones who had been following me since my first month.
Once again, thank you very much for following! ♥
