My name is Erica (really?). I’m a simple girl, living in São Paulo, Brazil, who is passionate about music and in special heavy metal. 

I’ve already had many blogs, focusing on a myriad of different things. This time my only objective is to connect with people that like what I write and to share whatever I feel might be useful for “the others” like me.

This is really special to me. I’ve always had the feeling that someting was reeeeally wrong with me. I was dark, weird, I liked weird stuff and somehow just didn’t fit in any sort of group.

I’ve never had many friends, I would spent most of my time alone as I grew up, in my room drawing and writing weird shit.

Nowadays, all I can say is that “it wasn’t just a phase”, I’m still the same strange person – the difference is that I learned to accept who I am and the dark corners of my mind. When I stopped struggling to be “a grown up”, like everybody else, was when I was finally able to love myself.

If you are an “other” – you are welcome here.

You know what is really important?

Doing whatever keeps you alive.

Alive and well – that is.

That’s why I started to blog again, after some years basically away from everything that made me feel living was worth the pain. This blog is who I am in categories. 

I’m a girl (duh), so I’m really interested in everything even remotely girly – like fashion and makeup. Beauty and selfcare are two topics I love talking about. Other interests are geek stuff, such as games and entertainment in general.

Bad decisions, that's alright. Welcome to my silly life.

But what really moves me is music. I’ve tried everything to let go of it – but the result was a complete disaster. I’ve developed a severe depression because I forced myself to have a lifestyle that was simply not for me.

So I’m here to write a detailed account of my foolish mistakes to maybe help you, dear visitor, not to do the same to yourself. I’m not saying I know everything, or that I can actually help anyone – my purpose is to create a space where people can relate and not feel so alone anymore.

If you feel mistreated, torn and cheated, you are not alone. We are the others.
