Once upon a time, there was a girl named Valerie who got lost in a wonderland called the Internet. In it, she ventured out into the open world and explored her interest in Sonic the Hedgehog, back during an era in which the Internet was still in its infancy; a time before Facebook, before Twitter, and even before YouTube. Slowly but surely, she started growing numb to the misery caused by the real world, and decided to make her online world her home. She was finally meeting like-minded people, became an online counselor to many and even did things creatively that she could never have done on her own. But then, things started changing--she was sucked out of her wonderland and suddenly thrusted into the reality called home. The real world. Part of her wishes she could go back, but knows that where she is now is what's best for her. Still, when things get rough, she likes to recall those simpler times where everything could be solved by hard work, sheer determination and an eagerness to just live, just like a little blue hedgehog she once admired.
This Tumblr page is devoted to finding little bits and pieces of that past, while maintaining her current interests in life as well.. Once day, this account will make all the sense it needs to make. Or maybe it won't. That's what makes it alluring to me.
