10 Songs No One Would Expect Me to Like

     Those of you who see me everyday know that I prefer to look like a funky creature of the night. For some reason, people assume that I am confined to a certain "role," so I've gotten comments or stares when I look or do anything "out of character." It's funny actually. I also happen to like a lot of music that is "Out of character."
Here are ten songs that I really like that no one would expect from me:

1.Talk by Coldplay. I actually used to be a Coldplay fanatic if you can believe it. I've been to two of their shows, and they have great stage presence. I still really like Coldplay. It seems to me that their songs are polarized. They have the cheery tunes, and then darker songs. I've always gone for the darker or more whimsical songs. I know, you're shocked.

2.Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. I've always really liked this song. It brings back memories of when I used to listen to Queen in the car with my dad.
3.Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. I remember listening to this song in the 90's. I miss those days...
4.California Uber Alles by Dead Kennedys. My boyfriend listens to this band, and he introduced me to them. I like Dead Kennedys more and more every time I hear them, and this is just a fun song. Jello Biafra for President!
5.Dragostea Din Tei by O-Zone. I first heard this song in middle school, and I loved it. I still know all the words.

6.Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies. My boyfriend introduced me to this one. The lyrics are just hilarious.
7.The Lovecats by The Cure. I just love cats...and this song is adorable.
8.Paranoid Android by Radiohead. I rather like Radiohead. My favorite album of theirs is "Hail to the Thief."
9.Caribbean Blue by Enya. I have loved Enya since I was a child. My mother used to play her in the car, and I would take the CD and run to my room to play it in my boom box. Those were the days.
10.Sabotage by Beastie Boys. I like Beastie Boys. They have good energy and funny lyrics. I remember listening to this song while on Rock-It roller Coaster at Universal Studios Orlando. I am an adrenaline junkie, and this is the perfect song for thrill rides. 
There you have it. Are you shocked? ;)


  1. i like so many of these songs, too, haha.
    the first band i ever really liked was coldplay, so they hold a special place in my heart i guess?

DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 

What you need: Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)Earring HookMetal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)How To Make It: Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apa…

I'm Getting Married in a Month...and Musings about "Growing Up" with This Blog

Finally people have stopped asking me, "What are your colors?" But now they're saying, "It's getting close! Are you ready?"

I woke up a week and a half ago with tension in my temples and feeling like I couldn't get my heart rate down. I realized that it was probably wedding-planning stress. I've tried with all my might not to stress about the wedding, so much so that it's finally caught up with me, I suppose.

But, I made sure to de-stress over the weekend last week and get done what I could with my week nights and this past weekend. What will be will be.

I might be a married woman the next time I post here! That's an interesting thought considering I started this blog in high school. It's been less than a decade, but life has crammed so many changes into that short amount of time.

When I began this blog, I was an inexperienced teenager, enthusiastic about the Goth subculture, searching for kinship with others who shared my interests. It …

My First Time at a Goth Club

When I walked into the building for Ascension, a Goth/Industrial night, they started playing "This Corrosion." I was introduced to Goth six years ago when I listened to the song, so it was like the night saying "Merry Gothmas, Katie!" I'd been planning on going all week, but when Friday rolled around, I was so exhausted from spending the entire day getting a new car (my last one was totaled) and then visiting family with a long drive back. I came home and wanted to just take a nap, and after taking too long to decide, I got dressed and headed out the door. This past Ascension was the last one held at the Masquerade, a much-loved local venue, and I wanted to experience it before I left for West Virginia.

I'd known about Ascension for a while. One reason why I hadn't gone before this past Friday is because of being a student and having lived an hour away. It's a lame excuse. Aside from that, I told myself for years that I wasn't a cluby-type (alth…
