Self-Injury: You are NOT the only one.

March 1 is SI Awareness Day.

"We are male and female. We are artists, athletes, students, and business owners. We have depression, DID, PTSD, eating disorders, borderline personalities, bipolar disorder, or maybe no diagnosis at all. Some of us were abused, some were not. We are straight, bi, and gay. We come from all walks of life and can be any age. We are every single race or religion that you can possibly think of. Our common link is this: We are in pain. We self-injure. And we are not freaks."

AHEM. Things stated here and in my journal are my opinions; you're very much entitled to have your own even when (not if, when) they differ vastly from mine. I respect your right to opinions and expect the same in return.
If you don't agree on something and want to let me know that too, please use constructive argumentation and back up your own statements and opinions.

ALSO; I'm extremely forgetful about updating this, so there's a chance not everything that's on this page is valid anymore. You can always ask! And I'll probably write about it anyway at a point or another because my mind likes to go in circles like a merry-go-round.

My name's Noora, although I also go by the name Nooris sometimes. I'm a teenaged upper secondary school student confused newly-graduated IBer from Finland. I'm in the IB Diploma Programme, on my first real IB year on sick leave right now on IB1 finally on IB2 FINALLY THANK YOU GOD YES, with intentions of actually getting the diploma this time on summer holiday before graduating in September no longer, sadly. But I will remain an IBer at heart, no fears (or alternatively lots of fears!). After that... well, I'm still waiting for an inspiration to spark through.
I write mostly in English, but sometimes - very rarely, though - I update my journal in Finnish. Neither language will be mastered very well, since I'm mostly fluent in Finglish, which is the official language of Ressu IB.
I write about my life and my thoughts as they are. I don't use friends only posts because it fights against the idea of internet journals, in my opinion I'm probably some sort of exhibitionist deep down inside. THIS JOURNAL IS SPORADIC, RAMBLING AND INCOHERENT. AND VERY, VERY EMOTIONALLY CHARGED.
My interests will give a clue about what kind of things I like, but since LJ is stupid and only allows 150 interests listed, I'll give you a short round-up:
I LOVE books. Harry Potter, Trainspotting and Porno, Edgar Allan Poe, Neil Gaiman, and anything by Robert McLiam Wilson (Ripley Bogle in particular) or Vladimir Nabokov will get me drooling. But really. As long as it's a book, I'll love it. Oh and TENDER IS THE NIGHT. It ROCKS. God bless F. Scott Fitzgerald (whose fiction is also on my list of best things ever). Sylvia Plath's poetry rocks my world as well.
As far as music goes, I'm kind of open to everything, even though I have my own favourites. LADY GAGA HAS EATEN MY HEART and/or SOUL AND I DON'T WANT IT/them BACK. Coldplay and Robbie Williams are eternal favourites thanks to their lovely melodies and gorgeous, thought-provoking lyrics.
DISNEY. It needs no explanation. I grew up watching those movies. (I still do!)
I like dark things, like death, suicide, blood and self-injuring. Not in the sense of wanting to kill someone or finding it really cool someone died in a car crash or anything. I just find the aforementioned things interesting. And anyway, I have the world's greatest psychologist
I like writing. I write stories and poems, fan fiction, fiction and factual text. I have a dozen sixteen 25~ 28 paper journals and a five-year diary which retired in January 2007, fully written.

Always open to new friends.

Also, I suck at updating the dates on the bars. Sorry. Try to use some basic maths skills (which I completely lack) and convert them yourself.

don't let go.

Suicide Prevention: You can save yourself.

Monday, September 10, 2006 is World Suicide Prevention Day.

How do you know I am hurting
If you cannot see my pain?
To wear it on my body
Tells what words cannot explain.

--C. Blount
I'm a (former? I'm on the borderline, I guess.) self-injurer. I sometimes write about things that some people find sick and disturbing. If self-injurious and depressed subjects are too much for you, please skip over them. Flames I save for burning myself.
All these banners are NOT here because I want/need attention and want everyone to know I cut/burn/self-injure/call it what you will. They're here because I want you to know what I think and what my posts will sometimes revolve around. And because self-hurting should not be a taboo but a sign of distress and need for help.
I'm warning you for your own sake, so PLEASE.

still fighting it--
--even though I may hide my scars.
*don't keep silent*

Mental Illness: People Say I'm Crazy.
October 3rd through 9th 2004 is Mental Illness Awareness Week. 

Depression is NOT shameful

Bi-Polar Disorder: You are not alone.

I like good grammar. Good grammar makes people happier. So PLEASE, for the love of anyone you choose, spell well. Typos are okay but SpEeliNg LiEk DiZ Iz NaWt.
I really really will probably skip over:
+StIcKy CaPs
+Using A Capital Letter For The Beginning Of Every Word
+net talk (liek, whoz, tho, no, diz, dat, ur, etc...)
+forgetting the fact that capital letters exist [I'm failing with this one at the moment but will attempt to reform myself, come 2010! Please forgive me momentarily.]
+finishing every sentence in '............' or multiple exclamation/question marks
((A side note: I sometimes post writing so that only the proper nouns that I see to be important begin with a capital letter. This is not due to bad grammar but a bad depression. Bear with it or don't, I don't really care.))
