I get tired! Today I am EMO :(

EMO -  it is a style of rock music, typically characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement in Washington, where it was known as “emotional hardcore” or “emocore”.

Today, EMO is a subculture, a Fashion (dressing, hairstyle, attitude).
Usually these teens are wearing skinny jeans, sometimes in bright colors, and tight t-shirts (usually short-sleeved) which often bear the names of emo bands. Studded belts and black wristbands are common accessories in emo fashion. Black Converse sneakers and skate shoes, such as Vans, are popularly worn among people of the emo fashion. Some males also wear thick, black horn-rimmed glasses.
Popular hairstyles include long side-swept bangs, sometimes covering one or both eyes. Also popular is hair that is straightened and dyed black. Bright colors, such as blue, pink, red, or bleached blond, are also typical as highlights in emo hairstyles. Short, choppy layers of hair are also common.
Emo has been associated with a stereotype that includes being particularly emotional, sensitive, shy, introverted, or angst-ridden.
It has also been associated with depression, self-injury, and suicide. Oh, no! Not me!

Still, I feel like I’m EMO today!
