I’m alive to both pain and joy now. I have my old laugh back, as my mom says. The one that takes over my body and sends me out of myself for a few seconds. And only a couple years ago, I had hoped I’d die.

Happy 30th Birthday, Hayley Williams! (December 27th, 1988)

To one of the very best humans we’ve ever known - our brilliant leader, our most thoughtful cheerleader, our baddest badass, our brightest light, our heartbeat, and our best pal. Happy Birthday, Hayley. The world is most certainly a far better place with you in it.

The hair thing is so emotional for me. About a year ago, I called my colorist and was like, “I’m going through so much emotionally. I need a reset. I need you to bleach my hair.” This has been really important for me, as a 27- and 28-year-old, to show myself every morning when I get up that I’m not someone who is going to live in the past. When it’s time for Neon Hayley to come back to life, she will. But right now, this is me.

If you play “Weightless” by All Time Low at 11:59:13 on December 31st, your New Year will start with Alex singing “It’s gonna be my year”.

Feel free to add other songs so we can all ring in 2019 emo style

I fucking hate people who say shit like “Who tf listens to *insert band, singer, song name that was popular before 2018-present day*?”

It’s none of your fucking business. Listening to the most up-to-date music doesn’t make you the top dog here. Neither does listening to old stuff. Stop acting like your tastes are a fucking achievement and let people do what they like.
