I feel sick.

So it’s pretty apparent that I’ve not been keeping up with this month’s blog posts. I could use the excuse that I’ve been busy – which, truthfully, isn’t a lie – or that I’ve been so involved with other projects that I let this one slip.

But the truth is? I feel sick.

It’s this election. I’ve never been so emotionally involved in an election before, and god, I’m just so sick of it.

I’m sick of the disgusting temperament and behavior of my fellow US citizens. I’m sick of the racism, the sexism, the classism, and the outright bullshit that common people have to deal with – or dole out – over these candidates. I’m sick of the mudslinging. I’m sick of the pundits.I’m sick of wondering if my reproductive rights will be taken away. I’m sick of wondering if I’ll still have the ability to have a voice. I’m sick of it all.

As I’ve mentioned a few times on Facebook, I normally use this time of year to get SUPER HYPED over Thanksgiving and the coming holidays. I love the holidays. This is the time of year where I should be planning my meal for Thanksgiving, putting together gift ideas for my fiance and roommates, and thinking of cool decorations.

Instead, I’m getting physically ill at the prospect of America completely falling apart.

I don’t have much else to say except for a small plea:

Vote. Please.

A (short) Introduction

Hi, I’m Amethyst.  I wanted to set up this blog as a way of communication: I want to talk about my personal experiences of being, well, a geeky goth; I want to use this blog as a means of reaching out to people who share similar interests; and I hope to be an eventual resource, however small, to others about these (and related) topics.

Currently, however, it’s the beginning of August – and I’m probably slowly dying of heatstroke – so I’m going to wrap this up for now.

Actually, here’s a cooler manifesto. Let’s just use this one:
