The conversion is complete!

I wrote this post three times, and each time was just too philosophical for something so superficial, too wordy about something that I just wanted to write a quick blog about. So here goes take three, maybe I'll finish it this time :) A brief description of me and my life:

Before I knew anything about anything, I tried to be something but didn't quite get it right.

I then went to university and met Shark and Tea who transformed me into this:

Through Shark I discovered hardcore music. Tea slowly got me used to the sound of metal (by never playing any other music, and I spent a lot of time with her), and she also put the dreadlocks into my hair.
They dragged me (kicking and screaming) to a Dead Will Tell gig, which is where it all began (a story we've never told, but we have told part 2).
(And I didn't actually kick and scream. I should have. In the mosh pit. Grin :D )

Now, one thing everyone knows is that to be a true hardcore/alternative kid you need to have a pair of skinnies, and not just any skinnies, but the trusty pair of black jay-jays skinnies that will last you through everything. The pair that Shark owns that I wish I could steal except I'm never the same size as anyone I'm friends with. These skinnies:
It's all about the clothes, of course, and you can't be alternative unless you follow the alternative crowd (duh).


Look at me, I'm so hardcore.


  1. firstly, you associate me with the hardcore genre *tear* I've never been more honoured.
    secondly, I'm wearing those skinnies right now. Haha.
    and thirdly- you're freakin' amazing. And I LOVE YOU! :D

  2. Oooh! What a transformation! Makes me smile to know I knew you 'then' and 'now' although it's almost like two different people! hehe :) Sharks right, you are freakin' amazing indeed! xxx
