My Autobiography of Jane Eyre Feels

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_tumblrbanner2

I have so many feels! For those that don’t know I watch a web series on youtube called The Autobiography of Jane Eyre. It is a wonderful web series that is a different from Lizzie Bennet Diaries in the sense it feels more raw and realistic, while the other one although very good, felt very professional. This has the feeling that it is homemade and not a production.

It is a vlog that follows the life of Jane Eyre a young girl in her 20s who lives in Canada. It basically follows the book, although it is set in modern day and the modernize, adapt and alter certain parts of the story.

“Jane” has a tumblr where she posts her youtube videos, instagram pictures, pictures that fit the mood. et.c Well it had been a while since I looked on her tumblr, I have not looked at her tumblr since Rochester revealed something to Jane! If you have seen it you know what I am talking about. I usually go straight to youtube and I follow a lot of people on tumblr so I usually don’t see what she posts (unless i spend hours and hours, but I can’t I’m in college). I decided to look and apparently she has been posting a lot since she left. I am trying to be as Vague as possible for those that have not seen it.

All the pictures below are things that stood out to me.  They are in no particular order, just from the time after Jane left. Don’t you notice a theme going on here?

please dont forget me

i get so angry

dreams come true

yet i have some tears to shed

since that day

abzense

people change

you must have loved me a lot

can a heart still break

you are a lie

crying bride

save me

change the locks

the journey

i wish the ring had never come to me

some people

shrouded bride

jan 22

jane leaves

by the window

cold candle

the dawn

you left without saying goodbye

now im not

Oh and she posts music too!

Really Listen to the Lyrics

To make matters worse she keep posting pictures of dogs and puppies that look like Rochester’s dog.

You want to guess how I am feeling right now? I’ll sum it up in gifs.

There. I think that sums it up nicely.

I Was Into Geek Before it Was Chic

I know this sounds hipster and frankly this is one of the few times I don’t care.

I remember growing up when I would geek out about certain things I would be made fun of, but usually I would just get strange looks. If I had been walking around with this The Lion King sweatshirt on 10 years ago, I would have been laughed at and a walking target for bullies (not that I already wasn’t)

But not anymore. Geek is in, geek is cool.

While I am glad about the comeback that geeks have made, for I am able to buy more products now that I enjoy that help me embrace my geeky side, it angers me at the same time. I liked it before it was popular. I was into it before it was cool. I wore clothes from Disney before their face began appearing in forever 21, wet seal, etc. I loved Marvel and DC before hot topic began carrying their items.

I was into Geek before it was chic!

It’s just frustrating. I just get mad when people who haven’t even seen the movie or read the books wear these outfits just because its trendy. I used to be in the mentality of wanting to be trendy, but I have honestly grown out of it and while I love shopping at the mall, I have no problem shopping at the thrift store (and yes I shopped there before Macklemore made a song about it.)

I’m not expecting these individuals to know every single thing about the fandom, but I want them (and wish them) to be genuinely interested in the fandom itself, whether they are new to the fandom or they have been a diehard for years. It’s also frustrating because it feels like everyone is saying they are a geek now because it is cool, not because they are actually one.  I know that I can’t interview them and quiz them, for that would just be rude, but when you ask someone wearing an avengers t shirt what they thought of the movie and they say to you they didn’t like it because they don’t like superhero movies or stories with superheros, they just like the shirt….

WHY GET THE SHIRT THAN!
It’s like if I cought a shirt with a rapper on it just because he is cool, even though I don’t listen to rap. Makes so much sense.

I am a geek. I love reading, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, BBC Sherlock, Babylon 5, Merlin, bad sci fi movies, classic movies, musicals I love reading comics (Batman is my favorite from the comics, but from the movies Ironman is my favorite). I love Disney, Pokemon, Ouran High School Host Club, anime, manga, art, music, I really love everything (except sports.) I have within the past year got into Magic the Gathering, really hard, but a lot of fun.

While I am glad that it is more accepted now, it kind of ticks me off because everyone is dressing that way because it is accepted. Not because they are actually into it.

I was a geek before it was cool and I will still be a geek once it stops being cool.
