There is one thing that truly fills me with rage; when people refer to Amy Winehouse as “a train wreck”, “A bad role model” or worse “just a junkie”.
Yes, she was eccentric, she was bold, she used drugs, she was open about her eating disorders and her behavior was boozy, messy and chaotic. She was damn rock star. She walked about in blood-soaked ballet flats, her beehive held high.
From Jagger, to Jimmi Hendrix, to Kurt Cobain, to Iggy Pop, to Lou Reed,  male stars  have used drugs, turned up on-stage drunk or high, got into fights, trashed hotel rooms, had ill-considered, public love-affairs, and made a great deal of chaos. Yet rarely has a female rock star indulged in this trend of chaotic living,  'messiness' of this sort has routinely spelt career death for any starlet! 
She was intelligent, self aware and a non conformist. She belted out her poetic lyrics with the strength and passion of a woman five times her size. Her lyrics were raw, honest and compelling. 'Rehab' ends with a confession that brings an unexpected, raw emotion to anyone who's ever tried to self-medicate for depression:
They said, I just think you’re depressedI said, yeah, baby, and the rest…It’s not just my prideIt’s just till these tears have dried.
She was emotionally anarchic, self-destructive and an unashamed. She had personal demons and issues and she was open, honest and public about them.
 Thinking any less of her because of her struggles, is simply an appalling disservice to not only Winehouse, but anyone who has lived/lives with addiction or mental health issues.

be careful… weddings tend to tear apart friendships forever =/

Yeah she still hasn’t responded to my text yet. And it’s like I’m sorry but weddings are an all day thing and I’m not going to pay a shit ton of money for a sitter. Like I’ll see if his aunt down in S.D. is able to watch her but she’s a pretty busy person so I doubt it. All my text said was “I know this isn’t what you want to hear so close to your wedding but I just found out he has an nfl game to go to and I don’t have a sitter for Rosie on the day of”..

I’m sure I just pissed my friend of since I just found out he’s going to an nfl game the same day as her wedding which means I don’t have a sitter for Rosie. 

Do not raise your children the way your parents raised you; they were born for a different time.
