Dear Teenagers on Tumblr,

Shh. I like you so much more when you don't say anything.

Have I really become the grumpy old person? Why, yes, I believe I have.

The thing that kills is that I'm actually feeling quite chipper. Can you feel intolerant and relatively happy at the same time? Hrm. Let's ask the man on the street.

Hey, you've changed the layout! Me likes!

Yeah, the teenagers on tumblr just get an eye roll, don't they? I feel so old when I peruse tumblr.

I feel old too. That's why they should just stick to posting pictures and not post all those omgijfotfwmsbtwsff or whatever the hell they're writing :/

This was my original layout when I first joined LJ. :)

I don't read the posts anymore begging for attention, you know "ask me anything on this list", "I want to know more about you so answer the questions and I'll put it out for the world to see," and whatnot. Or anything that has more than 2 lines, I'm there for the pics. :)

Ask me anythings and reposts of people complimenting them definitely irk the most. But they're little kids. I wonder how ridiculous I would have been if tumblr had existed back when I was their age. Heh. Look at what I post now. There's little doubt I would have been very, very silly and uber needy, too.

I am sure. I think it's good the kids have somewhere to go to find people with similar interests. I was a very lonely Whovian and Phantom fangirl when I was in high school. Also, life would have been a lot easier for this army brat, staying in touch with friends after PCS'ing to new posts had we had the internet.

The internet is a fabulous thing, for sure. Where else would I have been able to find other BG fans so easily? :D

Oh definitely! Since finding my group of peeps here, I feel like I've come home. :)

I feel like an old fart as well. I think they might have succeeded in annoying me away from Tumblr.

I'm not sure how much more I can take. I think I'm gonna have to quit the kid sites no matter how much I enjoy the pretty pictures.

What is this Tumblr you speak of? Is this what the cool kids are doing these days? If so, I must shake my cane at them and tell them to get off of my lawn. For I am too old to be hopping with the hippest.

On a note, I don't get Tumblr. Okay, yes, pretty pictures is something I can get behind, sure, but other than that... I don't get it.

I know. There are actually people who leave LJ to be on tumblr exclusively. Can you imagine?
