tumblr keeps attaching this tag to my posts, even though i haven’t typed it, and then won’t let me take it off. so, it’s a sign. tumblr is trying to communicate this important message to us in the only way it knows how. spring is a myth and we will be trapped in eternal winter until the moment summer scorches down on us. be prepared.
