Day of SilenceHello everyone!Day of Silence4 years ago in Personal More Like This
April 20th is the annual Day of Silence. The Day of Silence is when everyone goes quiet for a day to observe the silence forced upon those of the LGBT community. Those who chose to go silent on this day are screaming out louder than any protests. We are bringing attention to those who have and continued to suffer, and we are showing them that we support them. You don't have to be part of the LGBT community to support them. They are people too, and they deserve their rights. Let's band together and fight for those rights on the 20th of April by enacting the most powerful form of protest - withholding our voices from the community.
For every single person you know that is gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up. For every single child you have or could have that is or may be gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up. For every single person you do not know that is gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up.
Speak up by spending a day in their shoes.

So here's the story:
Apparently a week or so ago, our school's broadcasting team sent index cards to every student on campus asking them to write down a personal secret (NO NAMES!). I didn't take part in this activity as I was in a clinical setting.
Today, we walked into school to discover the main-hall window. In the center was a twitter-like "post" asking the students what their secret was, with about 100 of the index cards taped around it.
Most of them were depressing (i.e. 'I was disowned.' 'I watched my grandmother die.' etc.) and some were happy.
I was taken by a simple card that read "I am gay."
I felt the need to reach out to this person, but as there were no names on the index cards, that would be impossible.
During lunch, I got a sticky-note and wrote the message:
"PRIDE is not a sin in love."
and stuck it on the index card.
Class ended and as I walked to my next class, I passed by the window.

Seriously guys, it has to stop. If this law is passed, then there might as well be no such thing as the internet.
Youtube.com, Fanfiction.net, Google.com, Facebook.com, deviantART.com...
You might as well say your goodbyes to all these websites, because if these laws are passed, they'll be a completley different place, or shut down all together.

I live in a hellish cycle that will never cease...
When I was but a month old, my birth mother, a woman by the name of Tasha, left me in an abandoned church. I cried and cried, and this was near night.
Luckily about an hour later, three teenagers who were sneaking out to do whatever teenagers do when sneaking out, they found me. They called the police, as I was nearly frozen.
I was put into the foster care system.
3 months later, my father won the case and brought me home.
6 years late and an evil person comes along. Her name is Yvette Rosa. When I was six she hit me up the head with a high heel shoe so much I bled. She locked me in my bed room for three days. If it hadn't been for my grandmother and her calling the police, I would have had an early funeral.
And as if she didn't ruin my life enough, Yvette sticks my father in jail when I'm 12. It's been almost 7 months, and he still hasn't come b
I just wanna hold youI stare at your photoI just wanna hold you3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Whilst thoughts and feelings rush through my head
I begin to miss those sparking blue eyes
That cute smile
And beautiful blonde hair
I feel anger and tears overwhelm me
I feel so ashamed i ruined it
Why didnt i wait
I see your name on the screen
My heart flutters
I remember that first time we met
How much i wanted to talk to you
I was too shy
When we were paired up
My heart filled with delight
I finally had my chance
We got talking
I began to like everything about you
My feelings took control
I didnt care
That first hug
It made me want more
It made me feel happy inside
This time it was different
Your scent was beautiful
It felt right
Ive not seen you since then
Ive forgotten what your like
now your gone
And i think its for good
The tears stream down my face
And i have to move on
At a fast pace
I cant speak to my friends
They dont get me
Im the 'weird' one
The gay one
I wanna hold you
But ill never get that

"No-one likes you Harlow."
"You never come to see me."
"Turn around Harlow, i don't wan't to talk to you."

All these words

Of my chest
My heart is beginning to crack
And if things continue this way
My heart will eventualy

Sing It For Skye"Skye was 17, and probably the happiest, bubbliest, kindest person you could ever wish to meet. She was walking home from a friends house, wearing an MCR shirt, and some kids from her area started making horrible comments about her being an MCR fan and how she didn't deserve to live because of it. They kicked her to the floor, pinned her there, and repeatedly beat her until ther injuries -particularly to her head- were so severe there was no chance of her surviving. She died in the hospital later that day."Sing It For Skye4 years ago in Personal More Like This

I haven't been as active on here as I usually am in the summer because things are just nuts in my neck of the woods right now. For whatever reason, this has been one of those years where it's just one thing after the other, if you know what I mean. My father has been having health problems for a while, and he's going in for surgery at the end of this month to prevent kidney failure, so my family and I have been kind of hanging close to him to make sure he's okay. His brother recently passed away, so he's been a little out of it in that sense, too. I've been worried about him lately, so I haven't been drawing as much. My grandmother's heart is also acting up, so we've been checking up on her a lot, and her sister also died this year, which has been stressing her out and really isn't doing anything in the way of ensuring her heart remains unstressed. My dog just had surgery, a
A v A II down by Copyright Claim?????Last night I got an email from YouTube saying that my video "Animator vs. Animation II (original)" was disabled due to a copyright complaint by Joe Lafond.A v A II down by Copyright Claim?????4 years ago in Personal More Like This
WHO THE F$#% IS JOE LAFOND????
This made me so angry. At first I thought that this Joe Lafond was mistaking me for one of the hundreds of people who reposted Animator vs. Animation and its sequels, trying to protect the original owner without knowing that I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER.
But the process for submitting copyright claims in YouTube is pretty elaborate and risky for the person submitting so I really wonder WHY this person actually sent this copyright notice.
IT DOESNT SAY ANY REASON FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT, NOR DOES IT GIVE ME ANYTHING ABOUT JOE LAFOND EXCEPT HIS NAME.
So I can send a counter notification, but it's risky because what if Joe Lafond is the owner of the Firefox logo, or the avast! program, or AOL? If it turns out he actually made a valid claim, I could actually have my YouTube account terminated. The only other

'Daddy it hurts...'My name is Chris,'Daddy it hurts...'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am three,
My eyes are swollen..
I cannot see.
I must be stupid,
I must be bad,
What else could have made,
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better,
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy,
Would still want to hug me.
I can't do a wrong,
I can't speak at all,
Or else I'm locked up,
All day long.
When I'm awake,
I'm all alone,
The house is dark,
My folks aren't home.
When my mommy does come home,
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll just get,
One whipping tonight.
I just heard a car,
My daddy is back,
From Charlie's bar
I hear him curse,
My name is called,
I press myself,
Against the wall.
I try to hide,
From his evil eyes,
I'm so afraid now,
I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping,
Calls me ugly words,
He says its my fault,
He suffers at work.
He slaps and hits me,
And yells at me more,
I finally get free,
And run to the door.
He's already locked it,
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me,
Against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor,
With my bones nearly broke

EVITA-October's MM!Hey guys! It's Chrissi here. I recently saw Evita, and it was sensational! The set, costumes, and talent were phenomenal. Right now it's playing in the Marquis Theatre on Broadway, with Elena Rogers as Eva Peron, Michael Cervis as Colonel Peron, and Ricky Martin as Che. Rachel Potter was also amazing as The Mistress; even though she was in only one scene ("Another Suitcase In Another Hall") she has a lovely voice and it made me wish she was featured more in the story (although she's really not an important character in the grand scheme of the show).

I know we all heard this, but bullying kills.
I know this from experience. Bullying can rip you apart, make you feel hollow and dark inside. God, I've though of suicide. I've had friends call me crying because they're bullied. You never know how much you can affect someone with the smallest gesture or word.
6 teens commit suicide every day.
Bullying is one of the major causes for teen suicide.
I know noone will really read this, but think about it. There's no way you've never hurt someone. Noone has a clean slate. No matter how clean and angelic you look, every now and again, you'll find that one rip in your perfect cover.
Bullying can change people, situations, lives.
And go look at the normal High School right now. You'll see kids being brutally harassed every day, whether with words or violence. And we all just sit back and watch it happen, like it's a god damn tv show. Rarely will there be one kid who will stand up and be a hero. People th
