    Hi friends! I’m Brinn, I’ve been around since 2011. My pronouns are they/them. I’ll be 26 in December and I live in California. 3 (more?) facts about me: 1). I, too love animals very, very much; my family and I have three cats, three dogs, and I have a snake. My favorite animals are octopuses. 2). I write poetry and compete in poetry slams in my area. I’m alright. 3). I love going to concerts (I know that’s really surprising and unique to this forum but it’s a really big part of my life). The last show I saw at the time of writing this was Against Me! in LA. Here’s the latest picture I have of me, with my snake (his name is Severus Snake): I don’t know why my picture is sideways but I can’t fix it, so here it is.

    I’m Sonia. I’m female. I have a horse, Mick Mac, and I’ve had him for 20 years, so he’s my best friend and the love of my life. I’m a teacher at high school in maths and physics. I love cake and chocolate and anything sweet! And also, I love all kinds of animals, and have a weird fascination for llamas! Btw, I did pet a llama in Peru, so that’s pretty cool😅 Adding a pic of Mick Mac and me, since I feel awkward being in pics alone Edit: I’m 29 years old!

    Thailand (some islands and Chiang Mai/Pai), Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. Devastatingly beautiful and GOD THE FOOD. I'd love to visit Korea and Japan, they are on my list. Heyyyyy! Are you still in film?? I am sort of reaching toward being in film. Congrats on your sobriety also, that's huge. I generally do not ever want a real job ever again (I'm freelance and also did the second job thing til I collapsed) but a librarian is the one job I would do happily. Yes definitely. Not just because there are a lot of names (and gender identities actually) that I never actually knew and just kind of guessed or surmised. Maybe a new Introductions thread? Might be easier for any new people too?

    Can I please just say how heartwarming it is to see so many animal pictures here. I live vicariously. I'm Francesca (she/her), I'm 24 and I'm from England. I've been knocking around the MCRmy since 2010ish, and I've been a fan since about 2006. 1) I'm a writer. Like, professionally. It's cool. Horrendously paid but so so cool 2) My friends in school used to call me Frank, which I still answer to, and one time my stereo was playing Vampire Money and when G said 'how 'bout you, Frank' I actually started to reply and got irritable that I was interrupted by Frank Iero. 3) I'm learning how to read the tarot and my life goal is to be that old lady with a pack of cards who looks knowingly at people, flips a card and unearths their entire soul in a sentence. This picture was me at Halloween. I went as a fortune teller (it's the reason I picked up the tarot) and accidentally ended up looking exactly like I normally look except also like I was auditioning for the next series of Peaky Blinders. Which you should definitely watch.

    The name is Mariguel (she/her). You may refer to me as Mari or MariG. Currently 28 and live in Philadelphia. (This picture is about 6 years old and is the only decent one that I have by myself 🤣) I've been a fan since fall of 2004 (when the I'm Not Okay music video was released), and saw My Chem for the first time in 2011. I have a Bachelor's degree in science, Penn State Almuni. Love going to concerts, and this past summer I got to attend my first and last Warped Tour with my baby sister, loved every moment.

    Thanks!! Will go back and read and give you my reactions. And all you other guys: read it!! It’s amazing! good to hear! Haha, it’s kinda difficult to not be vague after 3 years, like it’s either that or writing a biography😛 I’m good too! Especially right now, lying on the couch after being outside in the snow😁

    I’m still going by Ash. It’s actually my legal name now (as of 2018, I’m good at procrastinating...). Didn’t seem a big deal because I was already using the name for years! Feels surreal for me to be back too. I’d grown out of MCR since 2013, I’m probably going to be listening to the music in a totally different way.

    Feel free to pick my brain any time you want, any advice I can offer I’d be happy to give out! More than happy to look over your potential course details or talk over where you might want to go in the future. I found that very helpful when I started out. (I also feel like I’m at a school reunion. It’s great.)

    Okay, so this is my life update thingy. I still go by Ash/Ashley and I use he/him pronouns most of the time. So here's most of my story? Sam and I broke up amicably in late 2015, it was fine, no animosity or ill feeling, these things happen! Shortly after this happened I went on a "hey Ash, you gotta explore yourself" in terms of my career, my studies etc, so I took time out to figure out what I want to do - eventually I graduated with a film degree in 2017 (first class - who know I was that smart??) anyway, that was a surprise that I surpassed my own expectations. I got a part time job as a scriptwriter, which is a lot of fun, the people I work with have almost become my family, alongside this I work an office job to keep my bank topped up. It's okay - I don't think it will be forever, but it's okay, you know? In mid 2016, I met my ex fiancee, lets just refer to her as "my ex" for the purpose of this post - anyway, it kinda started off perfect, she was there to support me through my degree, and I supported her through her studies, and we just kinda gelled. I didn't expect to fall in love with a woman, but hey sexuality is a complicated area for me so lets not go there! Eventually I realised this relationship was abusive, in an emotional and physical sense. I won't go into detail and it's not needed and not appropriate, but it was the hardest thing I've probably ever faced. My health got so bad, that my hair physically started to fall out, I was having constant panic attacks and was generally on edge, and I sunk back into that dark place I thought I'd never get back out again. Eventually the police got involved, I refused to press charges. The turning point for me, was I was discussing with my therapist the start of this year, my ordeal, in full detail and its extent as well as my background and my former battles as well as victories.We were talking, and I had mentioned I felt like a failure, I felt like I'd go back to the place I always was as this teenager, but she replied "you have your sobriety" - and it hit me like a tonne of bricks. Through all the bad - I hadn't touched a drink. I have just celebrated 4 years sobriety and I couldn't be more proud of myself. In the darkness, came a light and positive. I held onto that to allow me to grow. Since the breakup in mid 2018, i've been back in that "Hey Ash, you gotta explore yourself" mindset and honestly, I've grown exponentially in the last year or so. I am, thankfully, much happier these days. The experience of hitting rock bottom emotionally allowed me to step back and view my life in a real raw sense, and since then I've decided to take my Masters degree and I've also been exploring my faith and beliefs. I'm positive about my future, albeit I'm not entirely sure what it looks like. Personally, my passion is in film and photography (does anyone want my instagram? I take pretty pictures), But I have developed more passions. I would like to work with a charity at some point. My own experiences in life over the past 6 years (good and bad) - has led me to want to make a change. Do I stick with media or charitable work? I don't know, all I do know is the future is bright OH Before I forget... You all remember how Queen obsessed I was/am? I saw Queen last year. I'm seeing Queen twice next summer. Little 8 year old me would be so proud. I do miss my dear freddie i got a dog and called it freddie i also brought a replica red special (brian may guitar) and i learned to play the ukelele oh and i still own a black parade jacket

    This is sweet Rachel, thank you for your kind words. I do miss the good old days of the MCRmy, and your presence! On a serious note, I also found myself in a two year long abusive relationship from 2016 to mid 2018, hearing you broke it off and are now free from that situation makes my heart so happy for you. From my own experience, I know this is not easy for anyone to do. The humbling experience I had was that it made me appreciate my relationships with others much deeper, even just acquaintances on the street! I am so glad to hear your life is full of victories now, alongside such supportive friends and family. Although we haven't spoken in a long time, it makes me so proud to hear that you have chosen to be on committees and commissions trying to improve the life of people with disabilities. I feel if we have a battle we have to face, we often want to help others that are also battling them, I think that shows a lot of depth and courage in a person. I always admired your drive growing up in the Sister Wives, and nothing's changed there! I am so happy thank the reunion will rekindle of the lost relationships and friendships I had with you guys, and that already has made me grateful - and that's without the music! Really looking forward to your MCR pics! I'll try to sum up my last 6 years in my next post (yikes) I still go by Ashley... not sure I mentioned that!

    Thanks, I’m pretty proud of myself. I did tell a lot of people about it after doing it twice, including my boss, so now it’s really embarrassing to stop😅 that’s another good tip. I’ve tried going regularly a lot of times, and I always drop out eventually, so we’ll see how long it works🙈 well, thanks for trying, and if it doesn’t work, we’ll find a way around it. Like making a new one or something😊

    May I brag about myself for a minute? I’ve actually got a routine where I go to the fitness center before work every Wednesday! I’ve figured the best way to make myself actually work out is to get myself to the center before I’m quite awake, cause then I can’t make up any excuses 😂 PS Kerry, what do you think off reviving the asylum? I kind of miss that place.

    Thank you! I work as a freelance scriptwriter and film editor alongside my “normal” job. Hoping to break into the industry full time! How’s it going for you?

    I’ve grown a lot since I was last here! 2013 is a lifetime away and my life is nothing like it was, mostly because of a rollercoaster few years, but I’m far happier these days! (For example, I just celebrated 4 years sobriety!) How have you all been?
