Since Livejournal still seems to be A Thing around here (we truly are living in a quaint, simple past which knows not the pains of infinite scrolling and selfies), I think I've resisted it long enough. I caved. So, yeah, hi. If you know me from around school or something you can just add me.

I missed out on the golden days of Livejournal*, so I'm just going to take a page from token cool older brother here. He had one, like any self-proclaimed alternative teenager in the early-to-mid 00s. Maybe he still does because he's such a massive Internet snob. I'm not entirely sure, but just to be on the safe side, I'll stay away from the oxonians community where (I imagine) he sells soft drugs to undegrads. I don't know what he posts about these days, but his old journal used to be mostly about complaining and My Chemical Romance lyrics, so that's what I'm going to do in this entry.

This was going to be a great summer. I was going to go to Italy and spend time with my closest friends. But somehow, due to some kind of negative cosmic alignment, all of them are abroad or busy and generally not available. My parents, ever the tourist-haters, refuse to do what normal families do and take us on cruises or two-week trips to somewhere. You can't get to know a place in a short time, not truly, they alway say.

And so I am thus, stuck in Hippocrene Falls over the summer.

But, Violet, you may ask, why aren't you in New York with your family?

That's exactly it. My mum is going to England -- to visit Eugene and some relatives, and to take care of some business at an art gallery. My dad and I are staying behind (I wouldn't want to sit through endless hours of small talk with strangers who ask me repeatedly what I want to be when I "grow up", anyway). I love him, and New York is nice enough -- it's just that the city is so unpleasant in the summer when everything smells like exhaust fumes.

Enough complaining, at least for now. I promised you complaints and My Chemical Romance lyrics, but I'm afraid you'll have to do without the latter. I don't know much about them. Is that something I should fix?
