I just tagged a long text post and now I’m freaking out that people who aren’t already following me are gonna read it and visit my tumblr and judge me. I posted an opinion on the internet. we all know what happens when someone does that.
I finally got around to watching a movie I keep seeing a lot of on tumblr: Chatroom. As soon as I finished watching it I lit a cigarette and wrote a review. I’m not gonna be all intellectual writer about it with you, though, tumblr. I’m gonna tell you what I thought in plain terms. I probably won’t ever watch it again, but I really loved and related to this movie. Between the ages of, like, 12 and 16, I frequented chatrooms for hours on end, night after night. I was a lonely fucking loser, not that I’m saying everyone in chatrooms are lonely fucking losers (but most are). I met a bunch of really interesting people that I still talk to now, and I even moved in with a guy, when I was 18, that I met in a chatroom when I was 13. However, I also met my fair share of mentally abusive fucks, pedophiles, hackers, and creeps. I’ve seen kids get bullied relentlessly night after night on chatrooms, have their information get stolen, have their profiles hijacked, be blackmailed, and be lied to. I even got black mailed into sending nudes when I was 13. It was terrible and at the time I was extremely upset. I was still a partially innocent virgin back then, I didn’t show my body to anyone. I’m not trying to start a pity party though- all I’m saying is even if the movie is pretty exaggerated, shitty things like this have happened and still do happen frequently. It is relatable, even though the technology may change. I liked the movie, I thought the movie was very honest and had a cool way of personifying the internet.
Hey, tumblr! Just wanted to let someone know how perfect my day has been.
