I am straight edge because I believe in clarity of mind and having complete control over my body. I don’t need to be dependent on anything else because I am good enough as is.

amen.

Straight Edge Life

Happy Edge Day everyone!

true til death.  <3

my word!

there are some really, uhm… I don’t even know what to call them. I’d say “mean”, but it’s not the right word. Perhaps “extremist” is more the right word. 

anyway. There are so many extreme sxe people out there; I mean, I’m reading through some posts on a forum and someone asked about tasting wine (“if you taste—just a drop to get the flavour—are you still edge?”) and some of the comments received were just plain nasty. I mean, there were people post-yelling at the asker, people being snide and rude, people insulting each other for no obvious reason.

I mean, fuck, really? Grow up! You’re all people, a “yes” or “no” will suffice— maybe elaboration, but no need to get mean about it! It was for curiosity’s sake, calm down. Why do you beat each other up? (This goes out to everyone, kay?)

as straight edge myself (4 years~), I can’t see how any other straight edge person is worth getting yelled at over their/your/my interpretation of the lifestyle… it’s your life, your business. “Breaking edge” definition varies, but is it really such a big deal to get upset and angry at each other over, especially when it’s just a question in theory? So maybe tasting wine is breaking edge, but no need to get nasty about it. Just say so. There, problem solved.

(that is all. Beat at me with your bats, if you will.)

Which one, which one…?

I have an enourmous, lovely paycheck coming up (thanksgiving Monday work, thank you!) next week and want to get a hoodie to reward myself for surviving 5 months at my job. But which one?

                 

which one?  :O  So many choices! All are 30$ + shipping, so it’s not a question of price. Help me pick!

ugh, I get no shit for being straight edge but at the same time I get no social invitations either. It&#8217;s almost alienating to claim Edge around here&#8212; it&#8217;s like if you can&#8217;t drink, you can&#8217;t party, so why be invited? Even the DDs here are tipsy. It just makes me sick.
I also don&#8217;t really like parties anyway. I&#8217;m just the awkward kid in the corner with her water/Arizona tea, wondering why the hell people drink to get drunk.

diy. It&#8217;s a little irritated right now, but that&#8217;s just how things get sometimes. :/  
cleaning it regularly with hydrogen peroxide and/or witch hazel.  Gonna add the little &#8220;-&#8221; things on the tops and bottoms of the arms of the X later this week to complete it. You can kind of see where I started to do it, then stopped when I realised it was a bad idea to do it all at once (it was bleeding too much&#8230; ahaha&#8230;)
it&#8217;s about 1.5mm deep right now. I&#8217;m trying to get to 2-3, but that may not happen for my fear of me killing my wrist.
