Hi there. Today is a day I tend to stay off Tumblr and I’m not talking my TV stay off but I really kind of don’t to avoid spoilers type stay off Tumblr.
I was sixteen when September 11, 2001 happened. I was taking my I-STEP, which is our state graduation qualifying exam all sophomores take. I have never been more terrified in my entire life. Though, I did walk home from school because I figured since I live in small town Indiana I was probably going to be okay. I think I was the only kid who didn’t ride the bus or get picked up by their parent(s).
Anyway, I just can’t deal with it. Not even eleven years later. I just see the footage and hear the people and my chest hurts and I start wibbling and if I don’t look away, I just start sobbing. Which is weird because to be honest when it happened I was just numb completely, it wasn’t until we’d had a whole year to process it that I got overly-emotional, which as many people who know me know is quite rare.
So, can’t deal with it. I’m going to hide away from Tumblr and let everyone post whatever about it to their hearts’ content. I’ll come back tomorrow accordingly after I wake up and maybe after I go to work, we’ll see.
So this means that if you reply to one of my posts, reblog one of my posts, send me asks, or whatnot, I’m not going to respond to any of this until September twelfth because I know when I open Tumblr in my browser I might be confronted by an image that I can’t handle. So yeah. I’ll see you all in like probably 30 - 40-ish hours.
Always remember, never forget.
If you need to get in contact with me, I’ll have Twitter tabbed. I probably will avoid FB. If you need a link to my Twitter, it’s in the contact info page on my Tumblr.
