I Failed

Midterms were this week, and I didn't think it would be too bad. I was wrong.

I think I did pretty well on the Spanish midterm, but I just know I failed the Chemistry and Calculus. If I'd have just studied, I might've done alright. But, no. I chose to squander my time with fanfiction and television. I have no one to blame but myself.

Today was the second half of the Calculus midterm, and I knew I wasn't going to do well. Not only did I not study, I didn't know what to study because my teacher has been out all week due to a family emergency.

So, Anyway....

Excuse the slight musical reference. :)

The something extra I wanted to write about is a questions more than a statement. So, I'll go ahead and ask. I'll try to make it short.

Do we want My Chemical Romance to get back together? It sounds harsh, I know. For a little while, I was with the thousands upon thousands of others who would scream, "YES! GOD, THIS HURTS SO MUCH YES!" at the top of their lungs. Does it hurt? Yes, it hurts like a bitch. I have to wonder, though, would it be worth them getting back together? They would break up again, eventually.

Today is the Day

May Death Never Stop you became available for pre-order today, and it was very bittersweet. Honestly, I am still sad that they will not be making new music together as a band but I am pretty pumped for the greatest hits. Let's not lie to ourselves; those bundle packages our sweet. The funeral band makes me want to curl up into a little ball and cry, but it is still a pretty sweet bundle.

One other thing sucked about the pre-order. Thinking myself a bad ass (not really, but anyway) I was going to order it today on the day it was released.

What's Makes a Fan?

Among many other subquestions, I have to wonder what makes a fan. Nowadays, it seems there has to be a lot involved. Let me explain briefly why I decided to cover this today:

My friend was playing Teenagers by My Chemical Romance at lunch, and I of course took notice. That song feels special to me because it was the first one I'd ever heard from the band at a fairly young age. As explained in my bio, my niece showed it to me a few years ago via the music video.

Uneventful

I've thought of a way to fix my third installment, but for now I fight with my inbox and a website to complete a transaction. I'm trying to buy a vinyl that has Famous Last Words and My Way Home is Through you while waiting for play practice to start.

......

Yep, that's about it. It's a short one today!

Always with love,

Hello!

Why hello! How was everyone's weekend?

Mine was pretty good! My friend from school came over, and we basically screwed around and went shopping. My friend found a t-shirt at Hot Topic with Tom Hiddleston's face on it, so that's another addition to my growing black collection. I FINALLY FOUND ISSUE FOUR OF THE MLP: FiM COMIC! Oh, my gosh, I'm glad. Now I just have to find issue five, when we're on....13 now.

It's going to take me a while to catch up. :(

If you haven't gotten a copy of Killjoys #6 yet, you definitely should!

FanFic Update

Since I don't have to work this weekend and I might not have plans with friends (I hope I do, but you know) I've decide that I am going to work on my fanfiction this weekend! Hey, I have the free time now and I need to stay off my feet anyway... :)

I also decided that crutches suck and that I am going to give intermittent updates on my fanfics! If I want people to read them...

A) I have to freaking finish it so I can post it.
B) I should probably inform people about it.

I was up until 2:30 AM this morning drafting some scenes for the end of the second one (Titled "Isn't That Something). I

Ugh

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted! I will try to not let that happen again. :)

I've been back from my dad's in Tennessee for almost a week now, and it's been really fun! I had an American Pie marathon with my friends on Monday and Tuesday (snow days for the win!), and I have gotten some progress done on my fanfictions. Let me make the proclamation here and now:

I WILL TRY TO FINISH THE FIRST ONE BY THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR.

Just wanted to put that out there. It's a three part series, and none of them are finished.

The Future

This is something I think about often. Truly, I think about it ALL THE TIME. I used to be confident that I was going in the right direction but now I'm not so sure. I get pretty good grades in school, but I have a job now and am really invested in my fanfiction. I know, I know. The fanfiction is not nearly as important as finishing school, getting into a good college, etc. I can't help feeling attached to this story I've created though, and even the original characters that go with it. Yes, it is based off of My Chemical Romance but I feel like it goes much farther than that.
