Hi everyone! I’ve got a few quick updates for you. You might find me reblog this again later today/tomorrow so everyone can see.
My first little announcement is that I’m going to be making another round of confessions to post soon, so expect that within the next week! Yay!
My other announcement is a bit more unfortunate and to some degree, even embarrassing. As you all know, in the beginning stages of this blog, I was pretty active. Nowadays, I have less spoons to spend on making confessions, so I usually dedicate a small amount of time every now and then to making confessions in bulk, which leaves lots of people waiting a long, long time to get their confessions made and posted. Today I was looking through all the submissions I have, and I realized that I have way too many to make within a reasonable amount of time, and for this reason, I’m deciding to delete all messages submitted by anonymous users (people who submitted their emails only) that are older than 4 months old. Also, if your blog has appeared to be inactive for more than three weeks and was submitted more than 4 months ago, I will probably delete your confession, as I want to make confessions for tumblr users who are actually likely to see them.
Thank you all for your understanding! I’m hoping that this means users who have submitted confessions to me recently will be able to see their confessions made soon. If you suspect your confession was anonymous and submitted more than 4 months ago, feel free to send it in again, and it’ll get made! Have a good day/night, everyone!
I’m sorry, but this is a side blog and I cannot follow back!
Hey everyone, because of the 4c/han fiasco going on, I will be turning off anon and the submit box until I feel confident that everything has blown over. Please stay safe!
“I like thinking of Obsessions as a duet about an abusive relationship. I mean, some parts (Supermarket, oh what packet of crackers to pick?; but really they’re not; skin is on fire) as Marina, and others (They’re all the same, one brand, one name; look, look, just choose something quick, people are staring, time to go quick in; just choose something, something, something) as the abusive boyfriend.”
“I ADORE ELECTRA HEART. I love there’s so much depth in the album, like the emotions and persona of every song are really very varied and there’s so many things about it that I can relate to.”
“Marina kind of makes me wish I had a more tragic life so that I wouldn’t feel so bad about being sad.”
“It can actually be quite difficult being a Christian and loving marina because sometimes things she says and her lyrics kind of go against my faith - but I enjoy hearing it all.”
“I relate most to marinas songs about wanting to succeed/be noticed like Numb and Oh No!”
