Problems Vampires Have, Page 19
This has problems pertaining to dealing with "everyday" (everynight?) things for real vampires. It can get in a light vein, but I would prefer it to be mainly enlightening (jeez, can I quit with these day puns, already???) as to actual problems that vampires have to deal with on a day-to-day (aaarrrggghhh!!!) basis.
Ok, I'm going to do this quick before I start ranting.
Also, I'm having trouble finding info on laws regarding selling and consuming blood in Florida. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm in my teens and I recently discovered that I'm a vamp. This is a
problem. My mother (who is my sole confidant) doesn't believe in vampires.
The last time I started researching vampires, my mother grounded my for
weeks and took me to a therapist, which was not fun. I'm constantly having
to explain to my friends that I'm sensitive to sunlight, and I'm also
having to live with my mother telling me, "Maybe you wouldn't be
so tired if you'd go to bed earlier!" I live in Iowa so I'm constantly
having problems with the sunlight and humidity. Plus, I'm always having
to put up with my friends going, "Why are you always so bitchy?",
thanks to my mood swings. And lastly, I, like many others, have had problems
with idiots who think it is their duty to turn me into a pile of dust
thanks to Buffy marathons; as well as having to put up with the blood
Two of my main problems. The first one is one that most vampires actually enjoy, and that is hyper-sensitivity to sound. As a child, I had an inner ear infection that erroded the bones in my ear. This means that my hearing has been less that perfect for most of my childhood. But in the last few years, not only has my hearing returned to normal, its gone beyond it. Every time someone turns on a TV I hear a constant high-pitched squealing noise that gives me a splitting headache if it doesn't get turned off quickly (no TV for me) and I get the same thing from some computers (I swear I can hear the hardware working... and i can hear computer fans really loudly) and some ATMs. My bedroom is on the opposite side of the house to the kitchen, but I can hear someone closing the microwave door when I'm in bed with the covers over my head. Not fun for when I'm trying to sleep during the day.
The other problem is, of course, light. My whole family is blue-eyed, but none of them ever had a problem quite like my eyes. Every time I go out into the sun, I can't see for a good five minutes, and when I can see it hurts like hell even on an overcast day. When I go to the dentist, she shines a light over my mouth to get a better view, and even with my eyes squeezed shut it huts so much that I end up with tears all down my face. She puts glasses on me, and then with my eyes closed it is just bareable. Some days I can't even go outside because I simply cant see. And, of course, my skin burns in an instant. I wear the strongest sunblock I can buy every day, and still after a few seconds in the sun my skin feels like its burning. I have to wear long sleeves and coats every day, and hang my hair over my face. Not fun.

My twin brother and I are awakening vampires, but he refuses to accept it. Personally, I love being a blood vamp for my insomnia because I love the night. However, I do hate school out here in a desert of southern California. The heat is excruciatingly painful and it's worse when I wear sweatshirts and pants to keep out of the sun. The dress code for my school is ridiculous and I have to constantly explain why I wear what I do in 80-110 degree heat. I also hate Cali's fame for it's beaches, to which my mom always tries to bring me every summer.
Another big problem are my own friends. I told my friend, Theresa, that I was a vamp, and she said she was cool with it as long she didn't become a donor. Theresa really loves to do research on vampires, and she's trying to write a story that is pretty much exactly the same as my life, including my ignorant brother. Unfortunately, Theresa is a blabber-mouth and told some of my other friends who I do not trust with a secret like this. So now everyone thinks I'm some sort of killer freak.
Once, I snuck into a party Theresa was invited to and I wasn't. Next thing I know, the cops break up the party looking for me. Theresa later informed me that she saw some kid on the phone saying there was a "killer" in the house. At first, she thought that the kid was pulling off some prank call not long after I had gotten there. Now we both think that the kid replaced vampire with "killer" to (1) get me out as soon as possible, and (2) get the cops to take him seriously. Luckily for us, Theresa and I snuck out as the cops came and discovered teens my age and older drinking alcohol.
I also hate that my mom was friends with our family dentists. A few years ago, they ground my canines, or "fangs", down without telling me or charging my parents. Now I am trying to convince my mother, who grounds me just for going to a vampire-related site, to buy me caps. My life sucks even more when most of my family are vegetarians. Like I said, I love the night and consider insomnia a blessing; that is, until I have to wake up at 6:00 AM for school the next day. I guess life will suck for anyone.

Okay, I may be only 14, but these are some problems I have had to deal
with every day!
And don't let me forget the fact that I am highly athletic. If you see
someone playing a sport around here, even with guys, you bet I am there
(and whipping everyone's butt, too). I am also the one tackling/injuring
other people. There is never a game without a lot of bloodshed from someone.
And every time that happens, well, I get all vampy inside and it kills
me to just see all that precious blood bleed away...
Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
