Put a positive spin on the “D” grade by inking a barely passing student’s paper with a Danny Devito stamp. This hand carved wooden stamp comes with a custom image of Danny Devito’s beautiful mug that will cushion the blow of receiving an awful grade.

When I saw Black Veil Brides with Falling In Reverse, I had an anxiety
attack during Falling In Reverse’s set, so my sister took me to the back
to calm me down. While we were back there, Chris Holley walked past and
saw us. He saw me crying so he came over and said “hey, are you okay?” I
nodded and my sister said, “she’s okay, just had a small anxiety
attack.” Chris smiled a bit at me and said “would hugs help?” I smiled
so Chris came up and gave me a really tight, reassuring hug, then said,
“Black Veil Brides is coming on in a few minutes, wanna get up front?” I
nodded so he told us to follow him and he got us all the way to the
barrier right in front of where Jinxx stood for a lot of their set,
which made me (being a violinist myself) really fucking happy. Sadly, I
don’t have a pic with Chris and I regret that now more than ever.
That same night, I met you, and you saw the bandaid on my wrist (it’s
visible in the pic) and when you hugged me, you told me to stay strong
and sorta gently tapped the bandaid and said “you deserve so much more.”
I almost fucking cried, Bryan. I love you.
I met Andromeda from Drama Club, and that was cool but he didn’t really say much haha I met Cody Carson and he gave me a huge hug and
also saw my wrist and said “can I see your arm?” I nodded slowly and
held out my arm, scared of what he’d say about all the cuts and scars.
Rather than scolding me, he took his sharpie and drew a little heart at
the base of my wrist and said “let this be a reminder for the next time
you want to hurt yourself so that you remember that I love you.”
I also met Jinxx (and cried because he’s literally
my absolute favorite person on the planet earth) so I’m sitting on the
floor with an already sprained ankle and it hurt really bad. Jinxx saw
me fall and sorta chuckled but ran over and helped me up. I hopped to
regain my balance and he asked if I was ok so I just said I had a
previously sprained ankle. Rather than standing there knowing I was in
pain, he helped me sit down on the floor then sat down across from me
and said “it’ll be easier for you to walk once it’s a bit less chaotic.”
I nodded and said “I really loved your violin solo.. I play too.” He
smiled and said “how long have you played?”
Me: I just turned 16 three days ago, I started the August before I
turned 6. I started begging my parents to let me play when I was three
Jinxx: that’s fucking awesome!
I showed him the picture that I attached of his violin solo and he
thought it was really cool. He talked to me for a few minutes before
saying “do you think you’re okay to get back?” I nodded and he stood up
then held out his hands to help me up. He helped me up then said “are
you okay? It looks like you’re in pain.” I shrugged and mumbled “it’s
nothing, don’t worry. I’m ok.” He kept looking at me worriedly so I
explained, “when you helped me stand up, your hand hit my wrist and
it…” I stopped, realizing what I’d said and stared at the ground
trying not to cry. He just pulled me into a hug and said “I’m not mad at
you. Is it new?” I nodded and he said “can I see, just to make sure I
didn’t make it bleed again?” I rolled my sleeve up and it wasn’t
bleeding, so he smiled and let me pull my sleeve back over my hand. I
whispered “I’m sorry” so he hugged me again and said “I’m not mad, you
don’t need to apologize. But please promise me you’ll try to stop? When
you get home, go get your blades, including the one hidden as a backup,
there’s always one, get every single blade and flush them all. You’re
strong, you can do it. I believe in you. Then, next time you feel like
hurting yourself, instead, pick up your violin. It’s what I always did
and it worked for me. You can do it, I believe in you.” I didn’t even
try to hide the fact that I was just full on crying by this point so he
smiled and hugged me again then said “if you happen to see me again
sometime and you’re doing better, I don’t care where I am or what time
it is, come up to me and tell me so I can tell you how proud I am of
I was on a school trip in Germany and Austria (I
live in Kansas City) and we were on our last day in Vienna, March 23rd.
The same day BVB was due to arrive in Vienna. My friend and my German
teacher and I were walking around and I quite literally PHYSICALLY ran
into Jake Pitts.
Me: shit I’m so- hollllllllyyyy….
Jake: haha hey! Fan?
Me: -looks down at bvb shirt and wristbands- a little bit… Hi Jinxx!! Remember me?
Jinxx: holy shit! Yeah, but I didn’t expect to meet again halfway across the fucking world!
Me: GUESS WHAT I DID
Jake: um, scream in the middle of a street in Vienna?
Me: Smartass. No, but I bet Jinxx knows.
Jinxx: lemme see!
Me: -proudly holds out both arms, completely clean of any new cuts, and
the old scars are fading.- I did it! I went home and threw every single
blade away and instead of hurting myself I started playing my violin
when I wanted to cut again and it’s helped a lot and I’m now… 5 months
Jinxx: I’m so proud of you! I knew you could do it! Come here!
Me: -runs up and hugs him- thank you so much for taking the time to sit
there and talk to me and not just convincing me to stop but helping me
find an amazing alternative.. You quite honestly saved me.. I love you
so much Jinxx thank you
Jinxx: I love you too, and don’t ever forget it. I’m immensely proud of you, too.
Jake: I didn’t even know about this, but I’m proud of you. -hugs me-
When we walked away, my teacher (I kid you not, she willingly swears in
front of us) said “okay, goofball, who the fuck was that?” I smiled and
said “Jake and Jinxx from Black Veil Brides. Jinxx made a plan with me 5
months ago to help me stop cutting and it worked and he said if I
happened to see him again and had stopped to tell him no matter what or
where we were. So I did.” Since I’m tired of typing basically there were
a few more hugs then she bought me ice cream. It was a good day.
