Halloween Costume Obsession Story

Hello Internet!

I don’t know when I will be posting this but this story happened on the night of Wednesday 10/26/16, if any of y’all were wondering.

Okay and now for the story.

I was going to Youth Group at my church like every other Wednesday night were the middle schoolers and high schoolers have fun, grow in fellowship and learn about God. But this night was different. It was special. This night was my churches annual Halloween Costume party!

I was dressed as Tris from the Divergent series, since that is my Halloween costume for this year. And all the other costumes were really amazing! One of my friends was a scarecrow. Another a lego, and another a moose! And my sister and her friend were dressed as Lilo and Stitch! But there was one costume that REALLY stood out to me. Like stood out so much that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I can’t even stop thinking about it now, while I’m typing this, 24 hours later. I loved it that much.

And this amazing costume was, Tyler Joseph.

A 11th grade guy from my church was dressed as Tyler Joseph.

Tyler Joseph is my hero and my life and like all I think about all day everyday (besides Josh Dun)

If for some sad reason you don’t know who Tyler Joseph is, he is the singer in the band Twenty-One Pilots.

This is Tyler:

But this guy at my church, his costume was PERFECT.

He had the flower kimono, he had the black neck and hand paint, he EVEN HAD A UKULELE!!

And honestly when I saw him and it clicked in my head *this guy is dressed as my favorite human being.. AHHH* I think what I felt the most was shock. I was just shocked, happy, I wanted to scream, cry, hug him and just like obsess over this amazingness. I mean, I knew that there were people at my church that were also TOP fans, but I wasn’t expecting this! But I loved it!

And what do you do when you love someones Halloween costume? You go up to them and say “Hey, I really like your costume.”, they day thanks, and you walk away. But there was my issue. I COULDN’T tell him I liked it. I don’t know why, but just the thought of telling him gave me anxiety. I guess I was afraid that it would come out all creepy like  “I’M OBSESSED WITH YOUR COSTUME AND TYLER JOSEPH” and he would think that I was some kind of creepy weirdo, and that would some how ruin his friendship with my older sister? (The guy who was dressed as Ty is really close friends with my sister, and he knows that I related to her) I honestly don’t know what my problem was, I guess it was just anxiety.

So, instead of telling him I just kind of obsessed from a distance and just like wouldn’t shut up about how much I loved it, with my friends. But eventually it started to annoy my friends and we made an agreement. I had to get over this anxiety and tell this guy that I liked his costume, by the end of the night or.. um well their wasn’t really a consequence for if I didn’t follow through but umm.. oh whale. (I know this probably seems so simple and stupid to you, but I really felt uncomfortable even thinking about talking to this guy.)

And then the end of the night came. And all the youth from my church was taking a group picture together. I was standing there smiling for the camera with my friends all around me, and I look behind me, just to see who’s there. And of course, standing there, is the Tyler Joseph guy. This was my chance. And I knew that. I turned around and said “Hey, I really like your costume!”

YAY ME

But then,

One of my friends standing in front of me (who doesn’t know that I get anxiety) turned around and said,”Yeah, she’s been obsessing over it all night.” And I tried to say something like “I really like Tyler” but it wasn’t happening. And then the guy who was Tyler was just kind of like “Umm.. okay..” And I walked away.

Basically I got over an anxiety block! But in the end it kind of got worse.

Moral of the story: I’m obsessed with Tyler and Josh at an unhealthy level and apparently that gives me social anxiety.

I don’t really know why I posted this but um, why not?

Do you have any weird or embarrassing stories that somehow relate to Halloween?

What I’ve Been Listening To

Hello My Lovelies!

I listen to a lot of music. But there have been some songs that I have been listening to a lot more than others recently.

1. TB Saga

Many of you have probably heard of the band Twenty Øne Piløts. But most of you probably don’t know that Tyler made an album in his parent’s basement before he met Josh! And that album is called No Phun Intended. And in that album is a precious creation called TB Saga which is a song about Taco Bell. You have to listen to it!!

2. I’ll Hold Your Hand/ Beautiful Thing

I’ll Hold Your Hand/ Beautiful Thing is an original song by Grace Vanderwaal, who is the TWELVE YEAR OLD winner of America’s Got Talent, and I actually found this song before she sang it on AGT and I loved it instantly! It’s so beautiful!

3. Cancer

Yes. I know this is a My Chemical Romance song, and trust me I love the MCR version too, I just have been listening to the Twenty-one pilots version more

.4. Gold (Pentatonix Version)

Pentatonix released a cover to Gold by Kiiara, and I LOVE IT!

5. Kitchen Sink

I love ALL Twenty-One Pilots songs I’ve just been listening to this one a LOT lately.

What songs have you been listening to lately?

Hurricane Matthew

Hello My Lovelies!

As some of you may know there is a hurricane right now called Hurricane Matthew. And its coming right for us! They even had to cancel school for today and tomorrow! I’ve spent all morning helping my parents bring things inside and stuff. It isn’t real bad yet here, just a lot of rain, but I am not looking forward to later to today and tomorrow when it starts to get windy! Also the power is probably going to go out, so please don’t be expecting too many blog posts!

Please be praying that me, my family, and our house stays safe!

Bye!

One Year… Love you, Caleb <3

Hello My Lovelies

Today’s post is going to be a bit different. Today, October 1st is 1 year since this beautiful human passed away.

1447181697_caleb-bratayley-zoom

So, if you don’t know who this is, this is Caleb Logan Bratayley, from the YouTube channel Bratayley. (It’s a family daily vlog channel)

Here’s some background information:

Caleb Logan was 13 years old and lived in Maryland with his parents and younger sisters Annie and Hayley (who I met, the post is on my other blog). At 7:08 p.m. on October 1st, 2015 Caleb passed away from an undetected case of Hypertrophic Cardiomypathy which is a heart condition.

I found Bratayley 4 years ago. July 22nd, 2012. Best day ever. I spent the next 4 years, watching them everyday. I kind of grew up with them.. I looked at them as sort of my own brothers and sisters. Caleb was an amazing big brother, always there to cheer me up. Except the didn’t know I existed, but I was okay with that!

I remember it very clearly. October 2nd, 2015. It was about 4:30 p.m. I had just gotten home from school and I was checking instagram on my phone and I saw this:

igcaleb1

I was just in complete shock. I didn’t know what to do. I just sat there on my bed for ten minutes, just staring at a wall crying. I didn’t want to believe it. He couldn’t be gone, he just couldn’t! I missed him so much, it felt like losing a brother. I still haven’t gotten over it, and I don’t know if I ever will. It just isn’t the same without him. And I know people might think “oh you never even met him, he doesn’t know you exist, why do you care” I watched 6 years of his life on Youtube. I felt like I knew him. I know it maybe be hard to understand why, but I really cared about him.

He was such an amazing person, and I’m not just saying that!
