With a little help from my friends

I'm Robin. I live in Richmond, Virginia. I'm single and it sucks. XD  I have a silver tabby named Franz Ferdinand. I've had a small group of close lj friends for the last 2-3 years but a bunch have become inactive recently. I'm a 14-year lj vet.  I love music, but the mid to late 90s and early 00s was the best era. I listen to (underground) hip hop, emo, and classic rock. I'll always be an emo kid. I have a tendency to quote lyrics (scripting) and use them as titles.

I like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, Funeral for Friend, Panic! At the Disco, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Eyedea & Abilities, My Chemical Romance, The Faint, Modest Mouse, Rise Against, Bright Eyes, Brand New, Dashboard Confessional, Further Seems Forever, Metric, The Used, The Get Up Kids, The Smiths, Xiu Xiu, Yellowcard, Head Automatica, The Shins, Third Eye Blind, Oasis, Slick Shoes, Jets to Brazil, Lydia, Something Corporate, Gym Class Heroes, Talib Kweli, The Postal Service, Taking Back Sunday,  Jimmy Eat World, Death Cab for Cutie, older Warped Tour-type bands, and hip hop artists. I grew up on classic rock. I could easily go on. It was hard to narrow it down.  I'm always looking for new bands. I still buy vinyl and CDs.

I also love to read. I really like Chuck Palahniuk and r.h. sin as well as Albert Camus, Graham Green, and Aldous Huxley. I can play piano and guitar (I went through an "I want to be just like Blink 182" phase when I was in high school so I have a Fender Strat) but my absolute favorite instrument is the cello. I listen to Vitamin String Quartet, 2Cellos, and The Piano Guys.

I have ADD and am on the autism spectrum as a high functioning autistic. I'm super awkward and easily mortified. I'm prone to migraines I have depression, anxiety, and panic disorder but I'm working through it with meds and am doing very well of late. I'm just trying to live my best life. I'm an INFP/INFJ, depending on the test. I'd classify myself as a religious "none." I'm super introverted but have become much more social lately. More importantly, I want to be.

I'm super into football, especially college football. My team is USC (Southern California). I play fantasy football every year. I'm currently 1st in my division and 2nd in my league. :D

I have 3 tattoos (I want more), an industrial, gauges, and a lip ring. My hair is currently purple. I was a unicorn for Halloween, my favorite holiday. I love The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sleepy Hollow. The latter is the scariest movie I've ever seen.

My journal is friends only. I have links in my profile to my other social media accounts although I don't use them too much. I update every 2-3 days and comment often. If there's anything you'd like to know, just ask! <3
