about her0in chic

☆ I know what it’s like to feel like you have no one in this world who cares about you.
I’d like for everyone to feel as though they do. So, as being the first, I’d like to introduce myself.
Hi, I’m a random stranger. And I care. ☆

Many of my readers are always asking me about me. If I have a story, where does the name come from, etc.

Heroin chic was a look popularized in mid-1990s fashion and characterized by pale skin, dark circles underneath the eyes, and jutting bones. And about the zero instead of a letter o, it’s because in physics, the zero-point energy is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may possess and is the energy of the ground state of the system. Not only that, but my intentions have always been of being the heroine, therefore, I’m ‘that heroine chick’.

The blog started unintentionally. I needed a way to express myself. In a manner in which I felt someone would read it and maybe relate, just having the idea that someone out there is looking at my blog and feeling the same way is enough. I’ve been doing this since 2006 but I’ve never given my blog any kind of advertising so it’s magical how all my followers have had to find their way to it (or maybe someone simply recommended them my blog).. But yes, I was just looking for a place to post all I like, enjoy, feel, and think. To my surprise, more and more people appreciated it.

I do have a story, we all do. I’m human, just like you. I simply decided one day to make the best I could with what I have been given. So her0in chic came up. And my wish is to inspire people to make the best with what they’ve been given =)
And see where that takes us.

I feel really honored by each one of you that like my facebook page, or send me messages or comments. I’ve heard many times how I’m the one that has kept my followers going, or how I’ve even saved them. But all of you are the ones that keep me going. You are the one saving me.

The reason why I don’t reveal myself is because I don’t do this for the fame and glory. I’d rather be recognized for what I do, instead of who I am. I can’t be a person that represents it. Because you see, her0in chic is you, and it’s me, your best friend, your enemy, and it’s everyone else that reads it and feels similarly. There’s her0in chic in every single one of us, even those in your society that do not seem to understand you. We’re all together in this too, even if you don’t think so. Even if everyone around you seems so different, we all go through the same feelings. The happiest person you know, may be the saddest you’ve ever seen.

I never sat down and decided to become a story.
I just wanted to tell one.
I never wanted to be thought of as special.
Just human.
I never set out to help people or make them feel better.
I just needed you because I felt alone.
I never wanted any credit for the way you feel.
I just want you to know.

What difference does it make after all? — Anonymity in the world of men is better than fame in heaven.
For what’s heaven?
What’s earth?
All in the mind.

I also wanted to say that I have a facebook page where I share things I do not share here on the blog (like notes, pictures, videos, and phrases). So to those of you that really enjoy reading or looking at what I always share, you can see my facebook page here.

I also have a personal facebook, for those of you that would rather send private messages, this is it.

And my twitter

I love you all, thanks for always reading <3

  12. Dear HC,
    Why the name “HerOin Chic?”
    It’s beautiful (it has a ring to it) but is slightly morbid… explain? I think to hard on it all the time, and I thought… well why don’t I just go to the person who knows the answer! A complete “Duhh Raine!” Moment. :) Anyway… please explain.
    Love, Raine.

  13. I read all your posts back on xanga, and i had been a way for awhile, and i just thought to myself where the hell did she go with that great blog! Then i searched back to you and say you had moved here! You’re already on my bookmarked tabs, so i won’t forget about you again.
    :)

  14. it’s a funny thing that i also got lost in the fair when i was 5, just like you. i remember staring at the candy stall for long minutes when i finally looked around and realized that my parents were gone. of course, i panicked and started to run back and forth between the stalls looking for my mom. finally i went to a lady and asked her to help me get home. she called the police and while waiting she told me to share my PEZ candies with her son which i obviously did not want to. actually that’s the most uncomfortable moment i can recall from this entire memory. sharing my own candies with a boy i never even saw before…. so the police came and took me home and my mom gave me a bar of snickers and i thought that getting lost in a fair is not that terrible after all…

    thank you for this blog, for your lovely thoughts and for being there for us.

    • Sunset, thank you so much for these amazing words, they make me smile, you give me the light in my world <3 Thank you for enjoying what I do, and for letting me know I'm producing the desired results. <3

  22. I cannot thank you enough for the articles on your site. I know you put a lot of time and energy into them and truly hope you know how considerably I appreciate it. I hope I can do the identical thing for someone else sooner or later.

  23. Nila I am so sorry if what I posted in any way portrayed me celebrating Osama’s death. If you’ve been following me for a long time you must have noticed how I always post news, not only pictures and quotes, Osama’s death is indeed a BIG news right now, and of course I needed to put it up in my blog. You must also be aware of how much I criticize terrorism, in all of its forms, if you have been reading my blog for at least a couple of months. I won’t publish your comment, but I really appreciate you sharing this with me, I hope you understand that I do not, in any way, celebrate or agree to this murder, actually, sometimes I don’t even agree to some of the things I post here! But I post them because I want people to know, because information is information, and everyone has their own opinions about it.
    I am so sorry Nila, and from the bottom of my heart thank you for telling me this.
    Yours truly
