The Goth Challenge: Day 2

Day Two: Share photos and experiences from your Baby Bat days

I'm still a Babybat and I have no pictures whatsoever, so I shall talk about some recent things.

Some experiences...Shopping and DIY, I suppose. I'm not really into DIY right now. I'm used to simply buying what I need. I like the idea of helping someone else; never really thought much about making some of the things I buy for myself. I know some DIY is simple and things anyone could do, but I'm quite happy with the idea of buying instead. I hope to become a (pronounced "dyer"?) in the future, but not right now.

I'm also having some problems with the more artistic and talented aspects of the goth subculture. I don't think I have much of either in me. Talent, I have no idea, and artistic, I just don't have the patience for. That's something I'm struggling with. Many people in this subculture are so very hands-on and creative...I feel almost...insecure, somewhat, because I'm not. 

I also remember the day I went to Hot Topic for the first time. Amiss everything about HT, including the low quality of some their things and currently selling out (or at leas the one near me has, to my horror and great sadness...), I like(d) the store. I still do, in some weird sort of way that I can't explain. Back then, the store had a lot of fantastic and hard-to-find-in-a-store bands like Dir en grey, Children of Bodom, Rammstein and Dimmu Borgir. I've been in a HT at least three times, the first and second being with my mom and my older brother. Funny, I tell you. My brother had looked around the place with this blank expression like nothing could shock him, no matter what he saw. Nothing. Being my brother, I have to agree. :p

Not much else to share. I'm looking forward to the rest of this challenge.
