hello everyone! this will be my very last post on this blog. Isn’t that crazy? it is for me. This blog exists since october 14th 2014 so that’s almost 4 years… damn how the time flies. since then I’ve posted 5008 posts including this one, acquired 110.7K followers and spend hours scrolling through my feed. However all good things come to an end. I’ve decided to delete this blog because I need something new, something that fits my new life within my new school with new friends and this blog doesn’t fit that anymore. I haven’t seriously been posting aesthetically pleasing punk inspired posts in forever simply because I didn’t feel the need to anymore. don’t get me wrong I’ve put a lot of love into this blog and I will miss it (and probably regret deleting it for a while) there is a bright side to this story though! I have created a new blog which won’t be themed specifically like this one. it will be just me reblogging stuff I like and maybe post some original stuff when I feel like it. If you wish you could follow it, it’s @madnesswithinmymind
thanks to everyone who has been with me from the beginning and to everyone who has tagged on along the way. it’s been a pleasure.
