From the moment we open our eyes in the morning, someone is always pushing something down our throats. Buy this! Eat that! You NEED these new kicks! I fall victim to it regularly, but when is it enough? When do you fulfill your appetite? When can you safely say you’ve consumed enough? I’m trying to slowly work my way to that point. You don’t NEED or even actually WANT half of this shit. Consume less. Use more of what you have. Appreciate the things that aren’t monetary in value.

Reason For Reblogs
I’ve been doing some thinking and these are some reasons why reblogs are so prevalent on Tumblr.
1. Its kinda like when you were younger and you couldn’t afford those Jordan’s so you drew yourself in them. Its a way of have a bit of ownership on items that you can’t possess.
2. Its convenient. In the old days of Blogspot, if you wanted to jack someone’s work it took some effort. With Tumblr with a click of a button or two, you appear to be as knowledgeable r insightful as the person who actually did all the work.
3. Creating content is too difficult. Its easy to reblog this perfect crystal clear picture of the sunset or some cool ass picture. However, its not easy at all to go buy a camera and teach yourself the skills to create it yourself. It takes a lot of time to actually research and present new information in a different way than someone else. So in turn people would rather just reblog and pretend that they had a hand in creating an article.
4. Its an easy trap. If you follow a bunch on non creative blogs, all you’ll see is the same pictures that you yourself might succumb to the trap of reblogging yourself. I’m guilty of it too, but once I realized what I was doing. I cut all that shit out. Its super weak.
That’s my two cents on the matter. So if I don’t follow you back on here and you’re wondering why its because I don’t want to see the same Jordan’s, pictures of Rihanna and random pictures that you or any of the 154,115 notes actually contributed to. Even if its your blog, at least go about reblogging a creatively different way. But hey, its your blog. Post whatever you like.
