Tumblr shows the different sides of a person not often shown in person. It’s a personal diary, a blog, and a way to escape reality. You’re behind a computer screen, free of the harsh criticisms faced in their everyday life. People vent, bitch, complain, reflect, praise here and it doesn’t mean that they are like that in person. They just need a place where people will listen, for once.
"Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday. We graduated high school, saying goodbye. That feeling that you get at seventeen or eighteen that nobody in the history of the world has ever been this close, has ever loved as fiercely or laughed as hard or cared as much. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday and sometimes it feels like someone else’s memory."
Emma: The lack of privacy I find difficult, the lack of anonymity. You can’t go to the pharmacy without someone being “Oh you are the girl from Harry Potter” and I’m like yeah… I’m just buying my tampons, see you in a bit! So, it’s a bit awkward sometimes but yeah, I don’t know, it’s a bit surreal, I’m not gonna lie, it’s a bit surreal.
