The Straight Edge.
Nate. 24. Southern California. Father of Evelyn Marie.

Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

I will believe in dragons for as long as I run with dragons.

At its basest, yes. (I do have a straight edge FAQ btw)

Straight Edge FAQ? Why are people going to a fall out boy fan for answers about the Straight Edge?

Crazy to think that a person can be both straight edge and a fan of a band. You can shove your elitism up your ass, thanks.

Elitist? Hmm far from it. But thank you for your opinion on my opinion :)

Anonymous asked: How does someone's taste in music pertain to them being straight edge or make them less of reputable speaker/advocate for straight edge?

I never said it made them less of an advocate or anything. Just curious because I’m used to seeing people go to someone actually involved in the Straight Edge community for answers. And when I say involved I mean going to shows, supporting local Straight Edge bands, starting zines, starting bands to keep the message going and what not. Basically giving back. That’s a huge part of our community. Hopefully I don’t bring the wrath of the FOB fandom onto myself. The thought is frightening…

People who smoke and drink complain more about straight edge people than straight edge people complain about people who smoke and drink.

that is not true of those that I know (I’m not really either one group or the other, soz), so many pretentious ‘christians’ and others who think they have the moral high ground by refraining, who think they’re above others just because they go to church or something. the ‘real’ christians that i know don’t give give a shit.

Christianity/religion has LITERALLY NOTHING to do with the Straight Edge or being even being sober…

I left it to chance; I never should’ve let this get so far out of hand.
But I’ll do anything to not be alone ’cause when I’m alone you know I’ll…
I can easily fall back into old habits that I thought I’d left behind
And they rip me apart and I realize…

Don’t be alarmed, I have to lie
Take everything and keep it inside.
I know I’m sick and I’m not right. I’m so fucking tired of living this life,
I made for myself, I’m sorry that I cannot get past what keeps me away from the light.
I hope this explains my problem to you, because I feel like this every night.

Don’t wanna be like this, anxious and angry or hopeless and upset- all the time.
Unable to get back the feeling I lost somewhere along the line.
I wear it all on my sleeve and everyone sees no matter how hard I try.
I’ve never felt worse in my whole life.

Don’t be alarmed, I have to lie
Take everything and keep it in stride.

Feel like this every night.
(Night after night)

Most of the pix/video people have been posting of coachella feature people on their phones or taking selfies. And when I say on their phones I don’t mean taking pix, I mean using twitter or whatever they do.

Fuck misogyny and misandry. Equally.
