Thank you. :)
I feel horrible that this post, my last post, is on the heels of one that was so negative, but after much debating, I feel like this is the right thing for me to do.
I have decided to unfortunately discontinue the use of this blog. I haven’t been on here much lately, and while part of that reason is because I’ve been very busy with life-stuff and don’t really have much free time on my hands as I used to, another part of me feels as if I’ve officially outgrown this place, and feel like it’s time to move on.
I started this blog four years ago with the hope that I’d meet and share experiences with people my own age who were just as in love with The Beatles as I was, and I was able to do that, and I’m thankful that I have those people in my life (they know who they are.) Within the last four years, I was able to have many amazing experiences and cultivated lots of incredible memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life. And being able to share that through this blog was great, because as most of us probably know, most of our peers don’t really understand our passion for rock stars old enough to be our grandfathers! :)
I have grown up to be a positive person…so much so that I am someone who refuses to tolerate anyone or anything that deliberately breeds negativity into my life. Over the past few months,I have increasingly received many mean, rude and insulting comments, most of which I’ve ignored because I didn’t want my blog to be a battleground. It came to a point where I couldn’t even express my honest opinion or make a simple joke without being judged or scrutinized for it afterward. And that frustrated me, because being part of a community in which we share the same passion, we could and should be able to respect other people’s opinions without judgement and above all else, we should be able to treat each other with respect. I began to feel as if I couldn’t use this blog as the outlet I needed to express myself freely as I have in the past.
Moreover, I didn’t want this to affect my passion for The Beatles (and particularly Paul McCartney) as it has only grown over the last four years, and I refuse to censor that part of my life, since it’s such a huge part of who I am. So I plan on getting another non-tumblr blog going in the near future. Once that is ready I will post the linkage here.
Thank you to everyone who thought I was worthy of a follow. I started this blog thinking no one was ever going to be interested in reading anything I had to say and it’s been extremely flattering and heartwarming to know that so many you did.
Not sure what that anon was talking about, you are gorgeous! I don't get why people attack other's appearances.. it says more about them than it does about the person they're attacking.
why are you so ugly?
Pretty sure you meant “why are you so flawless?”
Ugly? Wow. How old are you? 15? You must be. I’m giving you the benefit of youth here for your stupidity but if you’re older than that this will just be more embarrassing for you. Actually, I really have to thank you Anon. You have just reiterated why I can’t even be bothered to post on here anymore. Please, do yourself a favor, and take all that time you spend wading in insecurity and jealousy and spreading negativity to people you don’t even know on the internet and put that towards finding yourself a life. You are most certainly in dire need of one.
You must have mistakenly thought you were talking some impressionable, insecure teenager here, so let me unapologetically disappoint you. I’m not going off to cry in a corner because some kid feeling ugly within themselves is so unhappy that the only way they can feel better about that is by calling other people who are happy with themselves ugly. Your case is especially pathetic because you don’t even know me. I am a grown woman who knows very well that comments such as yours undoubtedly come from people with maturity and intelligence levels that rival toads. But please go ahead and continue to spout words that indirectly tell me how much you’re jealous of me. I enjoy that.
what is your thoughts on Nancy McCartney?
I actually don’t have much since I don’t really know a lot about her…she obviously really loves Paul and definitely makes him very happy which I’m HUGELY supportive of. Though I admit I do wish that I could see a more independent side of her sometimes and not just as Paul’s silent, smiling arm candy, but that’s probably just the feminist in me talking.
So New York people should come out to the Cutting Room tonight because it’s Mark Sebastian’s release party and — SPOILER ALERT — John will be playing too! I’ll be there workin’ the thing and making sure nothing gets f00ked up. SO yeah. DO EET.
