21 Signs You Were 'Unconditionally And Irrevocably' Obsessed With Twilight

21 Signs You Were 'Unconditionally And Irrevocably' Obsessed With Twilight

You probably understand the words in the headline.

I have loved books that have come out recently, and I'll admit I binge watched many a TV show that I would consider myself obsessed with. But nothing will ever compare to the obsession I (and you, most likely) had with Twilight. The vampires. The werewolves. The attractive leading males and the leading lady who never knew what to do with her arms. A true masterpiece, and one that may be the biggest obsession you ever had or ever will have.

1. You read all the books at least 3x a piece

And you have a very clear favorite. Even after all these years, you can still remember what plot lines took place in which book.

2. And saw the midnight premiere of all of the movies (if your mom let you)

Bonus points if you were wearing a Twilight shirt.

3. You wanted to dress like Bella Swan

Jeans, converse, a long sleeve shirt and some sort of jacket over-top of it. At least no one could convince Bella of teaching children to dress immodestly.

4. At some point, you knew the population of Forks, Washington

3,246, if you were wondering.

5. You were vehemently Team Edward or Team Jacob

There was never any, "Aw, I like both!" moments. You loved one and hated the other. (But, could appreciate the attractiveness of each. Was Taylor Lautner the first time I experienced abs?)

6. You had the soundtrack downloaded to your iPod Nano

"Bella's Lullaby" is a classic, but you can get down to some "Flightless Bird, American Mouth." (And even if you thought "Never Think" was slow, you pretended to love it because Robert sang it.)

7. You could pinpoint every single minuscule difference between the books and the movie


8. You were convinced you'd end up wearing converse to prom

The best way to combine edginess and femininity. You also considered doing the boot, too.

9. You had at least one Twilight poster in your bedroom

And your heart may have actually palpitated when you looked at it sometimes because it just brought you so much joy.

10. You actually had a hard time reading books after reading Twilight, because nothing would compare

You'd get 3 pages in, say "ugh, not as good as Twilight!" and just reread the series again.

11. You felt personally attacked when Robert Pattinson made it clear he thought Twilight was stupid

How could you, Edward? Everything made complete and total sense? It was like it was based on a true story?

12. Harry Potter fans dissing Twilight made your blood boil

YOU CAN LIKE BOTH, OK PEOPLE? Ha ha ha sparkling vampires, sexy werewolves, mediocre acting. Great points, guys, except for Twilight was a masterpiece and you're all wrong!

13. You had a Twilight screen name/email on something

Your friends: Maybe don't put a Twilight reference in your Facebook URL, you won't be obsessed with it forever.

You, an intellectual: It's not an obsession. It's a way of life.

14. You thought Bella Swan's life was a true possibility for yourself

Yeah, yeah, I know vampires aren't real... But, they could be, right?

15. A picture pops into your head when I say, "and so the lion fell in love with the lamb."

Of a beautiful lamb and a sick, masochistic lion lying in a field.

16. You could finish the sentence, "about three things I was absolutely positive..."

You learned the word "irrevocable" (and 50% of your vocabulary from it.)

17. You overlayed text from the books on your photo

It looks silly now, but boy was it cool back then. (It wasn't.)

18. A beat up red truck was your actual dream car

Or a Volvo.

19. You firmly believe Supermassive Black Hole is the only song worth playing baseball to

This song will never not make you think of 700-foot vampire home runs.

20. You wanted to name your firstborn Renesmee

You realize it is a pretty horrible name now, but back then your number 1 requirement for a potential husband was agreeing to name your child Renesmee.

21. You will never forget your days of Twilight fangirling

You may not be ~obsessed~ anymore, but you know that you would love it and maybe relapse if you watched it again.

Why I Love Scary Movies

Everyone has a favorite movie genre, mine just happens to be the scary ones.

Movies are some of the greatest pieces of art in our modern day and age.

They can evoke all kinds of emotions, come in a ridiculous number of genres, and are just a damn good time. For me, no movies will ever match the experience of watching good horror movies. Sure, there are a ton of movies that I like watching more than horror movies. I would never go so far as to say that a horror movie was in my top 5, top ten, even top 20 movies of all time..but let me tell ya, something about the atmosphere and experience when watching horror movies just hits the spot with me.

The best way to watch a horror movie, as we all should know, is in a theater. The atmosphere is unmatched by any at-home viewing experience. The knowledge that you and many others are all sitting in the dark, waiting with baited breath for the next scare is electrifying.The size of the screen and the way-too-high volume mixed with the sound of people around you screaming at every jump scare is just incredible. But, for me, it goes beyond just that.

A lot of what makes scary movies so much fun for me is that incredible, heart-pounding, fight-or-flight adrenaline rush that I get almost every time I watch one. Don't get me wrong, I get scared very easily. I jump and hold my breath and hide just like everyone else, but something about that terror-high just makes it all worthwhile. Maybe I'm just an adrenaline junkie, but nothing gets the heart pumping quite like a nice little bit of fear. Hell, I'm terrified of clowns and I went to see Stephen King's IT by myself! I thought that maybe it'd help cure my fear of clowns, but no, its still just as bad as its ever been.

Watching scary movies with your significant other is also always a bonus. One of the best ways to score brownie points with them is to hold on to them while they're scared and put up with their antics after the movie as well. And don't be afraid to show a little fear around them too. Acting like a big bad tough guy is overrated, they'll appreciate it way more if you show a little humanity and emotion and get spooked just like everyone else.

Horror Movies for the win.
