So, I've been posting on tumblr how excited I was about the Mortal Instruments movie and, like, reccommending the books and now I find out that the author was some BNF in Harry Potter fandom who was a total jerk and plagerist.
I've unfollowed her and I'm not reblogging any MI stuff but now I'm all embarassed about having cheerleadered her. I want to go back and delete all those MI posts but the damage is done. I posted/reblogged them and deleting them won't change it.
The worst part is that I still really want to see the movie. I feel like such a hypocrite, I still like the book but I never want to mention it to anyone again and wear a wig and a trenchcoat when I go to the theater.
I want to not like the book because I don't like the writer but it's not happening that way. :|
So I'm making the switch to DW and I intend to be better here than I was on LJ. I've therefore decided to challenge myself to post at least once a week and to reply to at least two other people's posts per week. (It may not seem like much but it's already got me nervous.)
So I'm trying to get into Tumblr* and it's given me some thoughts about the One Direction fandom. All these little ones are entering and first experiencing fandom through Tumblr which doesn't foster community or relationships. So, I think the nature of Tumblr encourages all the worst parts of fandom.
*(and kind of hating it but still loving the pretty pictures)
[Collection] Lip things, mostly Nivea balms 'cause they always have coupons.
Eye products, colored eyeliner is my weakness.
Face products, I'm a sucker for concealers.
Nail polishes, I tend to buy and not use.
Nail clippers and files, I always lose them.
Brushes, again I buy and don't use them.
This is the stuff I keep in my purse. I basically do my makeup at the office or on the bus headed to the store.

This isn't part of the meme but I'm doing it anyway. This is me with a bare face and with full makeup.
