Author has written 6 stories for Misc. Books, Fullmetal Alchemist, Secret Saturdays, Harry Potter, and Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja.
Being a writer has its ups and downs...the perk is that you're completely in charge...the draw back though, is that you love putting your characters through so much agony that it slowly turns you into a psychopath...
...equivalent exchange, I guess...
Dear Writer's Block:
Thanks for once again pouring orange juice on the imagination machine. I really appreciate it. (If you can't tell, this is sarcasm, you @$$-hat.)
I hope a piano falls on your head and crushes your fifteenth kidney. Go eat a shoe.
UpDaTe ScHeDuLe! :3

Random Crap About Me, Because Why Not!
Oh screw it. A long time ago, I used to be so melodramatic about the secrecy of my real name. Now I really don't give a crap. My name is Marissa.
(For those of you who have followed me since the very beginning, yes, I did name my OC after myself in my older fics. Bear in mind that I was in middle school when I wrote those fics, and currently, I'm a freshman in college. So at least there has been some improvement.)
Favorite Music: Kimya Dawson. She's just...amazing. Seriously, I have compared her to pizza. Which is totally ridiculous, but I mean, think about it this way. If you have a favorite musician, you'll understand the feeling of listening to that music versus another artist that, sure you like, but you don't like as much as that one artist. Which is like eating microwaved pizza. Like yes microwaved pizza is pretty okay, but I mean, it's soooo much better fresh out of the oven or box or whatever. That's literally how I feel about music now. I thought people were weird before for having a specific favorite musician, but now I totally understand. XD
Kimya Dawson though is pretty great! She sings about loving yourself and depression and stuff like that. Which may sound a bit cliche, but I actually love her because her music is not only relate-able, but it really encourages self growth. Which is super important in any kind of art. Like sure, being able to relate to an art piece is great, but when something encourages growth, that's really amazing. I love enjoying something and growing from it too.
Haha but look at me ranting just gahhh.
Favorite TV Shows/Anime: Wellll, I really enjoy "Randy Cunningham: 9th grade Ninja". Like that show is just so cute and nerdy. Seriously Disney, that show is good, and the only reason it doesn't get a lot of attention is because you waste your time promoting crap that's all the same. Nobody wants to watch random kid actors (sorry kids!) in a TV show that is ripping off "Suite Life on Deck" or "Wizards of Waverly Place". Those have already been done by you. Yes you did good, now do different good. Or promote perfectly good shows like that ninja show that you forgot about. *shameless advertising*
I also have some guilty pleasure shows, like "South Park", which oddly enough is actually extremely smart in its satire.
"Fullmetal Alchemist" also used to be a huge obsession of mine. XD
For those of you who may be spending your time unhappy, even if it doesn't seem like that much time, you may be struggling. Just because you aren't spending the majority of the day in bed, it doesn't mean you aren't depressed. Depression is different for everyone. For the longest time I was ashamed of the way I've been feeling because I thought that I was undeserving of these feelings. I assumed that, I couldn't be depressed, because my life wasn't completely awful. However, this is the way that you feel. You can't just change how you feel, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. I know it may be hard to believe, but you're not a bad person for feeling like this. Accept that you are feeling this way and understand that you may need help. Everyone needs help at some point, and there's nothing wrong with that. I know for a fact that if I didn't find my therapist, I probably would have been dead by now.
If you feel like you want to end your life, I am begging you not to. You are a wonderful person, and I promise you that the pain you are feeling will go away. Ending your life will not take the pain away, because you will not be around to feel the pain go away.
For anyone feeling suicidal, I urge you to look to a suicide hotline. It is not a substitute for a therapist or a psychiatrist, but the person on the other end of the line or screen can help you. I know it helped me in my darker moments.
Ahhh. I'm really bad at answering my messages. If you message me, most likely I will be slow as heck in getting back to you.
