"So, Now that I am a vampire, I can't do most of the stuff I liked before, right? Like going to the beach, enjoying the sunshine, dating normal people things like that."
An often heard question. The answer... BULLSHIT! So what, you are a vampire. You need blood or take energy. That is absolutely no reason you cannot enjoy the same things you do now. Liked the beach? Go to the beach! like the sun? Bask away! Love like more sunscreen, sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts, open-minded dates... but thats it. Vampirism should, in no way, interfere with your life to that extent. Go, have fun, laugh with friends, get a day job, do what you want to do. Yes, its a bit of a wrench in the gears, but make it work around you, and you can do that. It is not the end of the world, your social life has not just come to a grinding halt, and the sky is not falling, even though I know it can feel like that. Please, please remember this. It IS your life, it IS now or never, and you AREN'T going to live forever. So if you enjoyed it before, you can enjoy it now. Nothing is stopping you.
