Just watched An Adventure in Space and Time…and I thought I should make this post; better get it done now rather than later.
Today was my first day of college life, and despite my personal fears and general nervousness, it turned out well — made a couple of friends, got to know my teachers and their expectations. And with the advent of college, my schedule will most likely wind up lopsided, and will barely leave any room for browsing around in this lovely little space.
That’s why I’m considering going on hiatus from Tumblr.
Time is of the essence, as anyone who lives in this world may know (and surely the Doctor would know, but on a whole different perspective) and I have recently come to terms with understanding. I’ve never really had a good grasp on the versatility of time, but that may change from today. There’s simply not enough minutes and seconds in the day to enjoy the fruits of fandom labor.
And speaking of said fruits…isn’t it time I grew some, or rather, created some?
I can’t just keep reblogging and commenting on other people’s works without sharing some of my own. I want to give back to the community, give back to those who made me who I am today. Without you — without us, there wouldn’t be a Tumblr, or fandoms, or even the series and franchises we all know and love. We could be anywhere, better or worse, if we lived in a world without Sherlock, Doctor Who, Attack on Titan or Supernatural…..
But think about this: Where would they be without us?
Where would we be without each other? Without Tumblr?
Where would you be?
As I take a vacation from the various shades of blue and Technicolor pixels of Tumblr to start charting a path across my reality, I want to depart with these thoughts lingering somewhere in the depths of your mind.
Take some time to be grateful of everything you have here, in the digital world, in the real world, and your own world. Take some moments — just a few won’t hurt — to realize who you are, what created and influenced you into the person you are today, and what steps you will take into the future to ensure that your destiny is no one else’s but your own.

I’ll see you when the time is right.
