A Terrible Loss

On Monday February 4, a 15 year old boy brought a gun to his Oklahoma High School, and took his own life in a bathroom stall.  His name of Triston Stephens.  Authorities say there is still no exact answer as to why he committed suicide, although they believe bullying may have been involved.
R.I.P Triston
If you are being bullied, don't be afraid to ask for help.  I know it's scary.  I know it's hard.  I've been there.   But there are people who care, who will listen, even though you may not feel like it.  YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
If you are thinking about suicide, please, please talk to someone, or call the suicide hotline for your area:

Don't give up on yourself.  You are beautiful, wonderful, and perfect the way you are.  You deserve to live.  This world would not be the same without you.

Fall Out Boy is back!

Grab your eyeliner and your skinny jeans, the boys are back.
After going on hiatus in 2009, Fall Out Boy is back with a new song, music video, album, and even a tour!

The bands album "Save Rock and Roll" is set to release on May 7, 2013.
The bands front man, Patrick Stump, released this statement:

"When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music.   Its why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place. This isn't a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us."
