reason you claim edge: because drinking and drug usage is just flat out stupid. I lost a best friend of mine because I refused to try drink with her any longer. She left me for friends who would drink and smoke pot with her. My best friend is now becoming a majorly crazed party animal, even ditched me to go to a party. Got piss drunk and called me crying because she cheated on her boyfriend. My dad got his license taken away at one point because of drunk driving; my grandfather was an alcoholic. My cousins were heavily into drugs and alcohol, the one was jailed and is constantly in and out of it. Yes, I take it very personally. Its just something I don’t want to get involved in at all. I hear the stories at school, I know what can happen, and frankly, its better to live and remember everything I do then to go through life in a fuzzy haze.
do you think self-mutilation is something those who claim edge should abstain from? (not including body modification processes): I think self-mulilation is something that everyone should abstain from.
do you think that abstaining from caffiene should be part of being sXe?: I drink anything caffeine containing anyway. I mainly drink water, and well the occasional apple juice or Gatorade during sport seasons. i really don’t know since it doesn’t pertain to me anyway.
what about animal products? (meat, dairy, etc.): I personally love meat, dairy, etc. im not vegan or anywhere along those lines. God intended for us to hunt and eat the meat of animals.

your pet peeves: when people think they are real hot shit and that they cant talk to me in front of their friends, but when we are alone or if they need homework or answers to a test, then they know my name. I hate when people want to copy my work, just do it yourself. When a teacher is teaching and girls interrupt him every ten seconds because they are in love with him and try to get him to talk about his personal life. OH yeah, and when I get in trouble for playing Go Fish in lunch.
how long have you been straight edge?: about a year and a half ive really been true and dedicated.
if someone breaks edge, can they claim it again?: eh. Well I was never straight edge when I was a freshman, I never got drunk but I did drink. I quickly learned that school was much more important, along with sports, which lead to losing a really good friend, but I gained a wonderful boyfriend who has been dedicated all his life to sxe. I did do some shit in the past, but I’ve defiantly turned myself around and am fully committed 100%.
Im on the right, with the sortve greenish ribbon around myself.
And me alone
