I’ve got a job. My daughter and I moved into a brand new (and I mean brand new, the building was just finished a few month ago!) apartment. The divorce is in process.

I saw Fall Out Boy live a few weeks ago, and it was an amazing experience. I want to see them again soon!

My daughter is still in love with Patrick Stump, and let’s be honest, so am I.

And once again, I did not attend Comic Con. *sad face*

My friend and I were talking about what we look for in a guy, and how Patrick Stump just seems like a really good one. Then I said, “Yeah, a lot of men come up short compared to Patrick Stump,” and she looked at me, and I looked at her, and we laughed for a long time.

Personal crap, feel free to scroll past

So. Mini update about me. Without going into too much detail, my life has taken a sudden, but not unexpected turn. My daughter and I have moved out of our home and are back with my parents, and my husband and I are divorcing. Wow. Even writing those words is very weird for me. It’s for the best, and I must now focus on the health and well being of myself and my baby girl.

I’m job hunting, (ugh) and apartment hunting, (double ugh) but I’m very grateful and thankful for my family and friends who are helping us through this very emotional and difficult time.

My daughter is not quite four, so she knows something is not quite right, but she is still more concerned with putting together puzzles and sneaking fruit roll ups than with the issues of her parents.

I am surviving by blaring a lot of Fall Out Boy music, (damn these lyrics for speaking to me!!) and relying on my sense of humor to keep me from breaking down completely. Laughter truly is the best medicine.

Unfortunately, this means I will probably be online even less than I have been, and my fandom side is sad. But I know that my daughter and I will be happier, and that’s what’s important right now.

Dear Soul Punk,

You are kind of saving my soul right now. *deep breaths*

Love,
Me

Wow. How out of the loop am I? I bought the Folie a Deux album the day it came out, and I did not know there was a hidden track on it!! Omigosh, it’s so beautiful. I’m crying. :(

Don’t mind me. Emotional. *sniffle*

I've seen your name pop up on some FOB posts and that you've posted a couple of things yourself but not alot. I'm looking for other fans to interact with, I don't know many. What's your FOB story?

Anonymous

First off, hello! *waves shyly*

Yes, I am a HUGE fan of FOB, and I’d be all over Tumblr if I had more time. Right now, I’m kind of dealing with some stuff, so I only pop on every now and then. I’m going to see them in July with one of my best friends, and I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! She is the only other person I know in real life who is also a fan, and I am the only other person she knows. It kind of makes us sad that we don’t know more people, because we think their music is awesome, and we’ve been fans for years.

My FOB story? I’m not sure what you mean. Like, how did I start listening to them? How did I become a fan? That sort of thing? Well, I’d love to say that I’ve been a fan since the start, but unfortunately, I didn’t know about them until I went to see the movie The Fog. That was strictly for my Tom Welling obsession, but there was this great song playing during one of the scenes, and after the movie, I immediately had to find out who was singing it. It was Sugar, We’re Going Down Swinging, and just like that, I had a new favorite band. Patrick Stump has one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard, (can we talk about his range? Omg, I know people who would kill to be able to sing like that!) and when they went on hiatus, it was terrible. You should have heard me shrieking when they announced they were releasing a new album and doing a tour!

I own all of their albums, including Patrick’s solo album, and my 3 and a half year old daughter can sing some of their songs AND pick out Patrick’s voice from other songs he’s collaborated on. She’s totally in love with him!

This is going to sound super corny, and whatever, but their music has helped me through some tough times, and it still is. If I ever get the chance to meet them in person, I would love to tell them this. Patrick, Pete, Andy, and Joe mean a lot to me.

Come off anon and chat with me. I’m a nice gal, I swear! And I’d love to meet some other fans. :)

A whole day later, and I’m still upset by this situation on Twitter between a fan and Patrick Stump. Wow. I just can’t wrap my brain around how utterly rude this girl is being.

Would I willingly wait hours to have the minute possibility of meeting someone I truly respected and…

I totally get what you’re saying. I used to know people who would buy a group’s albums, sometimes multiple copies, and then say stupid things like, “well so-and-so of this group bought a new car, or a new house, so since I helped pay for that, I’m entitled to a tour or a ride” and they were being dead serious. Made me so uncomfortable!

I’ve also had discussions with people about paparazzi. Like, they think that if you’re famous, you’re not entitled to privacy anymore. “Well, they chose to be famous, so they should have known this was going to happen.” No, not necessarily. These people wanted to hone and perfect their craft, something they truly cared about and had a passion for. Sure it’s nice to be recognized, and even better to be paid well for it, but that doesn’t mean they were in any way signing over the rights to their own privacy.

I think it all falls under respect, something our society as a whole seems to be lacking.

Would I willingly wait hours to have the minute possibility of meeting someone I truly respected and admired? Well, hell yes.

Would I be disappointed if I was unable to meet this person after waiting hours and hours? Sure, that goes without saying.

Would I then go on Twitter and verbally berate said person, calling him names and basically being a major A-hole about it? Great big hell no.

And the worst part is he apologized to her! He actually freaking responded to her multiple angry tweets and apologized for not being able to meet with her, and she’s still being a brat about it.

This shines such a poor light on fans as a whole, and it makes me cringe because I’m sure this isn’t the first time it’s happened. Not necessarily to this guy, but in general. It just saddens me when I hear about or read about situations like this, I don’t know why. Ugh though. :(

I’m not crying. I’m not.

Crap. I’m crying. Wtf?! That hurt way more than I thought it would.
