    Amen to that pic. I'd find a match and light it under the fire detector and make it extra fun

    Alright my list:
    Since joining ST, I've been in a relationship with 3 of you and, unrelated to the first number, met a total of 6 of you in person. Although I feel like I might be forgetting someone...
    In the near future, I may or may not hang out with one more of you if you'll be so inclined as to come over to Cali, and there are definitely a couple of you whom I'd love to meet one day.
    All in all, I feel like ST's pass-around slut.

    That said, I came here during the freshman (or perhaps sophomore) year of my high school. Since then, I've graduated, got my AA degree, and am now struggling on to get my BFA. There is a minimum of 3 more years of school left in the near future, and in case I decide to get my Masters, which I will, add an extra 2 on that.

    During my ST years, I've gotten a cat who died, and then gotten two more who are still alive and very much devil like. I love them to death. Even though one of them is technically my brother's cat.

    I am much more open about myself, and I don't usually care what others might think (to an extent, of course) about me. I am still shy around unknown people, but as soon as I get to know the group better, I start chittering and joking around. My dark sense of humor has not left me. In fact, I embrace it with all my heart. I can be mean, but only in joking circumstances, or else if you have incredibly angered me. This has happened 3 times that I can remember. So don't do it. You will suffer pain.

    I've cut my long hair, and now leave it short (to my shoulders). I've also dyed my hair a very dark shade of brown, although it was supposed to be "black." I have 3 holes in my ears, and I love them. This is a side of me who is just coming to the surface. Sure, I've talked about doing crazy shit, but this is the first time I'm actually living up to my words. A rebellious side, if you will. I love it. Yeah, okay, boo hoo you dyed your hair, big deal. But baby steps my dear, baby steps.

    My sudden bursts of insomnia are still very persistent, like at the very moment, which allows me to typ up this crap load of junk about facts about me you couldn't care less about.
    One more thing, my eating habits are horrible. I can down 3 in-n-out burgers and fries if I want to (although that was nearing pain. but I do 2 burgers & fries no problem), half a large pizza with my friends just staring at me trying to guess when I burst. I don't eat in a what you might call "healthy" manner. I'm constantly, or at least most of the time, chewing on something. Yet, my weight is falling. And this is scaring me slightly. I've always been on the skinny side, but now a days I just don't look healthy anymore. No, I'm not rubbing anything in your faces. This is more a cry for help.
    I'm getting a blood test tomorrow to make sure I don't have any problems, because if I wasn't eating, then of course I'd be losing weight, but the way I'm devouring everything around me, it's just not normal. Unless I'm bearing the child of the devil. Which would explain things.

    Hope you enjoyed my rant.

    It was actually much, much worse. As difficult as it is to believe I used to be emo back then.

    Yes. YES. I know. You've met me. I've met me. Thousands of people have met me. They still don't believe it. hell I still don't believe it

    Hey, at the end of the day.

    When hearing an inspirational story, we can either choose to dismiss it and linger, or embrace it to grow

    If I'm deceiving then I'll ultimately feel empty and useless. Words mean nothing without purpose behind them

    I didn't get where I am today thinking my ambitions were "too good to be true". =]


    It is what it is.

    A couple of years back I had a rather weird depressing very dark phase, where I'd dress in black and black and black, and I'd wear very baggy clothing that was 5 sizes too big on me. I'm very glad that me is gone. Now at least I dress like a girl. A hot one at that ;D huhuh Well maybe not, but I've gotten compliments.
    I still get a little depressed at times, and I'm still dark, but I can now mix that up with humor and joking and fun, so "morbid" would be a better way to describe it.
    Either way, the "only ever depressed emo girl" is gone.
