again,my creeping self was reading, and i saw what you knew what that whole "keep calm &.." i'm not so smart, what is that from!? :o
LOL you’re too cute. There’s this thing circulating on Tumblr. It’s really trendy and annoying. Kinda like the whole flashing galaxy thing. It’s a craze where people write Keep Calm And (Insert something here) on a picture. I’ve only reblogged three ever in my life. Keep Calm and Stay Edge, Keep Calm and Call Batman, and Keep Calm and listen to Have Heart but I only reblogged the Have Heart one to express how annoyed I was by it.
i love them too, dont get me wrong, but there are other bands who deserve some recognition as well.
Yeah I know. I’d probably be annoyed too. I was a little annoyed when I saw them on one of those trendy ass fucking “keep calm” things, but that’s about it. Maybe you have more fans of Hardcore following you than me, which is why you see it so much.

This man, my step-father, Enemencio De La Cruz, aka Willy, has all my love and respect. He was a father to me when my biological one left. He loved my mother, and still loves her, when no one else was/is willing to. I love this man. He is my step-father by law, but he’s my Father in my heart and in my mind. He’s gotten drunk and fucked up a couple times, but one thing he never, ever, did to us was leave. And I’ve had people lie to me when they say they’ll stay, but he didn’t. In a way, I think he’s the reason I’m not a failure. He came to this country with nothing but lint in the pockets of his broken jeans. He has lived in Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, D.C., and Florida, but he found his home and his love in New York. He found solace and peace behind the wheel of a car, and made a life out of driving. Look at him now, and look at me. Before friends, before girls, before my life started shaping itself, he was there for me, and he still is and I don’t think he’s going anywhere any time soon, at least I hope he doesn’t. I love you, Father, even if sometimes we don’t understand each other.
of course you're the first person I'd come to for this. You seem so confident about everything. I especially admire the fact that you take so much pride in being Straight-edge. That's so great. I totally understand what your saying now. I appreciate your advice and I'll definitely use it. Thanks so much :)
You’re very welcome! :3 And you can talk to me about anything. It doesn’t just have to be able Straight-edge. If you need someone to just listen, I’m here.
I guess I'll come to you with my situation.
I claim edge, but I'm kind of afraid to tell anybody because the people I go to school with are so incredibly judgmental and I just know I'd be made fun of for it. Also I KNOW my sister would make fun of me so much for it because she likes to drink etc. She's tried to make me drink before and I obviously tell her no, but she gets angry at me for it and tells me I'm a loser. My friends also sometimes smoke and drink and I'm just afraid one day they'll stop talking to me if I don't go along with what they're doing. What should I do?
Sorry this is so long.
Nah, this isn’t long at all. I kinda dig that I’m someone you trust with this kinda thing and that you come to me since it’s about straight-edge so thank you for that. :] Also, people are always going to make fun of you. Whether you claim edge or not, they’ll find something else to tackle. But, since it’s Straight-edge we’re talking about, just know this. They can laugh all they want. You’re choosing to separate yourself from a lifestyle that has really fucked up consequences. So fuck the people you go to school with, who gives a fuck if they laugh? Just remember, they can’t laugh when they’re dead. My friends smoke and drink all the time and they still talk to me, so if your "friends" are really your Friends, they’ll accept you and your lifestyle choice. Your sister on the other hand, should support your choices regardless, and try to keep you away from making bad ones, especially if she’s older. But if she doesn’t, all you can do is ignore her. It’s what I do whenever someone gives me shit about it. Which makes no sense because I’m being made fun of for staying away from the things that destroy your body lol. And as for what you should do: Stand your ground and stay true to your pledge. Never surrender. Never falter. Have hope, and have faith in yourself, and most of all have heart. That is all.
I look up to you, you know? There are a lot of people out there, doing all these drugs and such, and it's cool I guess. I don't look down on them for doing things. It's not like I haven't ever smoked or drank. But now, for some reason I've been looking down on myself for doing such things. It doesn't give me a good feeling. The decline from the high is always a drag, and it scares me that I might become addicted. So I've been trying to stop for a while now.It's been a good two months and I'm proud of myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm not calling myself edge just because its been two months. Not anything compared to your whole life. Anyways my point is, I just wanted your story, something like motivation to me. You're really awesome, bro. You seem to get so much shit for being edge, and I'm sure you have a lot of friends who get fucked up frequently. I don't know how you do it. But I really really look up to you for that. I don't know anyone as passionate as you are about being straight edge. Whatever they're passionate about doesn't compare to the amount of passion you harbor. Anyways, I'm gonna stop being on your dick, I'm starting to sound gay. Lol. Thanks for the answer, bro.
Holy shit, why in the world are you anonymous? :o This was so legit! lol Thanks bro, I don’t think I’ve ever been someone’s inspiration or a role-model of any kind. Thanks a lot for understanding and listening. And, like I always say, all it takes is hope and patience. You’ll get over this. Just have hope. Have patience. That’s it.
Can you tell me about the first time you decided to be straight edge?
Okay well I had basically been edge my whole life, and some people think that my family fed me bits of alcohol when I was a kid, (which is usually exactly what Dominicans do lol) but they actually didn’t. They kept their alcohol to themselves, and sometimes I’d sneak out of my room to see what they were doing and I can’t tell you all the fights I’ve seen break out between uncles and aunts and how many times my living room was destroyed because of some stupid disagreement that was turned into a catastrophe because of alcohol. When It was then, at like 6 or 7 years old, that I decided that I’d never touch alcohol for fear that I might be like my family. My step-sister’s mother smoked a lot around the house and I just don’t like the smell of cigarettes or weed. People have told me to try it and I’m just like “Eww dude, no.” To be honest, that shit smells like sewage to me and I didn’t want that inside me. I’ve never liked the way drugs and alcohol make people act and the smell of cigarettes just bothers me. It’s like food, you know? Like, if it smells weird or nasty, you’d have the same impression about it’s taste, so you never try it. So from when I was like 6 or 7 I had already decided I’d never do any of those things, and when I was 13 I found out that there was actually a lifestyle like that called Straight-Edge and that’s when I adopted it. I had forgotten about it for a while but I was still true, and when I was 14, my brother Aaron reminded me and I’ve been true ever since. I’ve never broken my vow and I don’t plan on breaking it.
How do you define straight edge? Sorry for my dumbassness
Nah, it’s cool. It’s an honest question, not dumb at all. Straight-Edge means abstaining from drugs, alcohol, and any form of smoking. Some people believe in abstaining from premarital sex, but that’s some neo-straight-edge-Christian shit if you ask me. There are many different variations of it. There’s Vegan Straight-Edge, and people even go as far as abstaining from caffeine and prescription medicine but fuck that shit, I just had surgery and I need painkillers. I live by the three original principles of Straight-Edge. No Drinking. No Smoking. No Drugs (Narcotics). That’s it.
nigga you mad corny shut the fuk up with your "flawless logic" no.
LOL See? Masochism at it’s best. You do realize that by putting yet another useless and ultimately ineffective comment in my messages, you’re not only making yourself look stupid, but you’re proving everything I’ve ever said about any anon right. So, with that said, my good sir, I bid you and your feeble attempts to try and get the best of me adieu.
Everyone knows anons are just people you know, using bad spelling to try and cover up the fact that it’s them, because if they type the way they usually do when they’re talking to the person they’re trying to put down, they think that some mystical godly entity is going to magically whisper their identity into the person who’s blog you are trolling on when little do they know that whether they were anon or not, I, nor anyone else, gives a single millimeter of a fuck about what you have to say so you might as well not even be anon. But, I leave that shit on because shitting on these people and their inane arguments is fucking fun.
you get your dick ridden for NO reason. ya all ghey
Well, one logical explanation would be the fact that you have no dick to ride, because you’re anonymous, which is also probably due to the fact that you have low self esteem and lack the testicular fortitude it takes to say something directly to someone without help from a gray veil. You’re so masochistic in fact, that you try ever so hard to come up with these little childish phrases, only to be shot down by my flawless logic. Think about that shit for a second while I skull fuck your mom and any other possible arguments your underdeveloped mind could come up with.
