I've Been Thinking a Lot

So I got this book recently, it is called "OCD Love Story". Thus far, it's an entertaining read. However, there are a few things that have been jumping out at me as a little close to home.

The main character has obsessions with real life people, and once followed them to their home.

There is another non-main character who picks at her hair, mainly out of anxiety.

Compulsions such as pinching, and behaviors such as social anxiety.

One thing I'm not proud about myself is that I pick at my hair.


If you guys read the words I type, that's fine. If you don't, that's fine too. I just like putting them up. :)

I realized that I didn't post a blog yesterday, and that kind of upsets me. I like posting my thoughts on here because I feel like I won't be judged as harshly. We all go through some shit, and we need a place to vent. Or, we just like to post about our daily lives, our struggles, our triumphs, or our love for MCR (or other bands!). I just think this is a safe place and a great community to pour my heart out too. If anyone from my real life finds this, great.

Hello, Angel, tell me... know the rest. Anyway, I felt that appropriate because I was checking on my fanfic updates and found this: - PLEASE READ. I know it's a link to a fanfiction site, but this "chapter" is actually a search party for a good friend of someone on this site who I've talked with and really like. I don't want anything bad to happen to my fellow killjoys, and hope everything is okay. <3

I don't personally know these people, but I hope someone who does can bring a peace of mind to those who need reassurance.

I will update you


I just bought the tickets for my sister and I to go see Reggie in the Full Effect in Februrary. That sounds like a total FB post, but it is going to be my first concert and it will just be my sister and I.

My skin is crawling with excitement. This means I will be seeing FRANK IERO AND JAMES DEWEES in FEBRUARY. Excuse me while I..

*magically resurrected*

Now that I'm alive again I will let you all know that I will be separated from my blog for a horrible week. :( I have no Wi-Fi in my house yet, so school is the only place I can post.

Perfect Weekend was Perfect


Friday I went on that date I talked about a few times, and it was okay. We went to Steak and Shake, saw Delivery Man (which wasn't all that bad) and then he took me home. I tried to tell him after the date that I just wanted to be friends, but he interrupted me before I could finish and he left.

So, that happened. I had to work until 2 the next day, but then I went up to Lordstown with my sister to visit our friends J, M, G, C, and A. That was awesome, because these are the BEST PEOPLE I'VE EVER BEEN INTRODUCED TO.

Taking the Good with the Bad

Let's start with the good.

I went to the Catching Fire premiere last night with sister and my friend, which was awesome! We were the first ones in the theater, since we got there like two hours early. So, we settled with our slushies and waited for the movie to start. About a half hour in, I was sort of bored. I looked down at my red Fanta slushie and started singing "Red and Black" from Les Miserables.

"I don't know who you are, but you're my new hero," someone said behind me. I turn around to find a girl sitting in her seat two rows back. She seems nice, so we start talking.


I don't know what to write about today. Do I discuss the overwhelming perfection of any/all of the following people:

Tom Hiddleston
Gerard Way
Frank Iero
Ray Toro
Mikey Way
Aaron Tveit

? Or do I talk about things happening in my life I am excited about, such as going to the midnight premiere of Catching Fire with a friend and my sister? Or, the possibilities of me seeing Frank Iero live by planning on purchasing tickets to the Reggie and the Full Effect concert that is coming to Cleveland in February?

Perhaps I talk about the personal things that I am having problems with.

I'm Sorry About That...

...I don't know why I decided to post that last thing. Sometimes I just feel like sharing, even when I probably shouldn't.

Anyway, here's something I actually WON'T regret sharing: my entry for #CatsAreSmart! I wrote a short haiku and submitted it to Gerard's twitter and the Cats are Smart tag. It's basically about the cats that live in the parking lot of my work place.

I Really Don't Care

I am in a REALLY weird mood. I really don't care about much right now.

So, last period was English. We have this research paper due on Tuesday that I've barely worked on. At the beginning of class, I think, "okay, I don't have tumblr at home so I'll keep these research windows open and do it later". I log onto tumblr and scroll through my dash....

By the end of class I am blissfully happy. I don't even know why. Maybe it was the funny text post, maybe it was Tom Hiddleston seductively licking a blood popsicle (don't judge; Tom, I am kind of sorry) or maybe it was the frerard tag.

Woot Woot!

UPS tracking information was quite accurate! "How I Learned to Stop Giving a Shit and Love" came in yesterday. I listened to it, and I was right: it is VASTLY different from what I usually listen to. However, I did what the album said and stopped giving a shit. The music is catchy, fast, and I'm pretty sure there isn't a song on there without a curse in it. You know what, though? That is what MSI is, I've realized. These are the songs that LynZ, Kitty, Jimmy, and Steve wanted to put out. Those who listen to it can either love it or go away.

In particular, Witness, I Want to Be Black, and A
