    I'M Newly Goth -- Experiences Good And Bad So Far

    I've always been fascinated with the darker side of life. As a kid, I obsessed over death. It took me a long time to realize that I wasn't "normal." I have graduated high school, about a year ago, and I've had a lot of time to think about how I want to live my life. I started...

    It Just Feel Right...

    I feel like under this awkward exterior in a desperate goth chick waiting to come out. I like dark depressing things. It feels right. What more can I say. I would dress in the dark clothes etc but I am not that confident...Yet!

    Inside But Not Outside

    I'm one of those people who thinks gothic but when you take a look at me you wouldn't really think it. Although before people actually new what goth was (Jr. High) they all thought I was a goth because I wear lots of black.

    I identify as Goth, but I'm a tad scared to

    In Another Lifetime...

    I was goth.  Black boots to the knee, lots of black and red velvet, the whole nine yards.  Then I moved to Texas.  Things are different here.  For one thing, it's too hot most of the year to wear all that.  For another, this is the Bible belt, where they...
