I think im too obsessed

I dont know if this goes here cause its about U2 but its kinda not, lol.
I think im too obsessed with U2. I love them so much, but i think im starting to annoy people because all i do is talk about U2 and Edge. My dad yelled at me the other night cause i wouldnt shut up about Edge and he said i ruined U2 for him. I cried so bad, but i cant give them up or take a break ive tried, i feel wierd when i dont listen to them... lol. I dont know, maybe it would have been better if i never would have known who they were. Oh and i try not to talk so much about them too, they just pop out of my mouth...lol.

Welcome to the club! My family thinks I'm crazy. They've been asking me why I'm a fan for twenty years. But they've learned to accept it, because they know I'm not giving them up.

That's like me.

But, uh, sometimes I think U2 is not really healthy for me. That maybe I get too excited about it. Don't get me wrong. I still love them, though.

I wasn't exactly a great student because I got too blasted nervous for exams and am generally lousy under pressure. It had nothing to do with being a U2 fan, trust me! I think being a fan actually helped me deal with the pressure, which was absolutely hellish in allied health school. It gave me a bit of an escape that was healthy. I'd listen to the music and look at pictures, etc, etc, and that took some of the tension out of school. In the end the damn pressure at the *job* I got after school ended my hospital-work career and I ended up getting a degree in history.
Sorry, I'm rambling.

Aw, that was kinda harsh on your dad's part, tiger_luver64....

Anywho......another obsessed person here. . My parents have made comments about it on occasion, too. Not to the extent your dad did, but they've made comments nonetheless. I didn't get good grades in math class last year, but I don't think it had to do with my U2 fandom, either-it was more or less just because geometry is effin' hard, man (I hated that class, I am so glad to be done with it).

People aside from my family definitely know that I'm a U2 fan, though...I've had people tell me that they heard U2 songs in class or on the radio or saw some U2-related thing on TV and thought of me. . One day, during a school activities event, I'd brought some of the CDs with me, and one of my friends noticed them, and I think I kinda scared them, LOL.

And despite the occasional comment, my family is overall pretty cool about them-my dad loves their music and we get into conversations about them and listen to their music together and stuff sometimes, and my mom still gets me magazines or sends me things from her Yahoo! clubs that may have something to do with U2 (for instance, she sent me a post from her club in which a guy said that U2 rocks. Just a mere post). And my sister will watch some of my things with me or ask to listen to some of the CDs or something, too. So that makes me feel better.

I'll admit that sometimes I'll go a little overboard, but...*Shrugs*. Who doesn't from time to time? .

Yeah, I am 13 and part of this group! Anytime I'm with my family or even other people I bring U2 up. I sleep in the whole day oneday and my sister joked around with me and said Bono stopped by. It was kinda of funny though. It knida stinks that my parents don't like U2. But if a U2 C.D. hits stores they would give it to me in a second! I made my mom watch the E.BT.T.R. music video and she got sick! {LOL!} Hey, don't feel bad we're all basically oppessed fans here!

everyone knows i'm a U2 fan, my mom wont let me talk to her about them cuz she says it's too distracting from my school work. on the other hand my english teacher is a huge U2 fan who spent the better part of two 80 min english classes talking to me about them

Those teachers sound cool! .

Heh, my Advanced Speech/World Literature teacher actually agreed to try and get time off to take me and anyone else who was interested to hear Bono speak when he did his heartland tour, should any tickets still have been availiable or something. Unfortunately, the one we were looking towards going to was a private event and tickets were sold out and stuff, so we didn't get to go. But just the fact that she would've tried to get it so she could take me was pretty cool in and of itself. . She knew I was a fan and everything, too-I think I made that rather clear during the school year ...
