Most recently, he did a video titled "The Return of Eugenia Cooney." It's really excellent and I recommend you watch it, it'll give… Continue reading VIDEO: Re: Shane Dawson and Eugenia Cooney

If there's anything that makes me really shake, it's sociopaths. Well, even more than that, and this isn't something I usually talk about with folks- so even those close to me wouldn't know it- but the thing that really grinds my gears the most is internet pro-ana content. What the heck am I talking about?… Continue reading The Scourge of Pro-Ana Content

I’ve dated more people than can be counted on one hand, approaching two hands. I have been through many breakups, makeups, rebounds and long lost reunions, likely much more-so than folks my age usually have. This is generally attributed to my constant craving for emotional connection, and the number of breakups attributed to bad luck.… Continue reading Breakups: Sociopathy versus Sadness

I’m going to college soon. I’m so happy. I actually got into the college that my ex is going to, and can’t go for financial reasons. A real blessing in disguise. In any case, my chapter of discussing him on this blog is coming to an end. This’ll be the last one, unless something new… Continue reading Gas lighting in Pictures: My Last

I’ve gotten a few questions (and concerns) recently about how and why I choose my article topics. No one has asked this specifically, but in addition to exploring how and why, I want to talk about why I talk so much about past relationships and gaslighting. First of all, I sometimes choose what I write… Continue reading Why I write on the topics I choose

The term describes the tendency of inhabitants of mental hospitals and treatment centers to romanticize their fellow patients, sometimes doctors. You’ve seen it on Survivor or Big Brother, perhaps; in… Continue reading Modern Love: Hospital Goggles

I put a lot of heart into it, despite the first couple of minutes being blurry(!)- which turning it to HD will help with- but you can also read the transcript below the video,… Continue reading VIDEO: “Ed” as an Abusive Inner Voice
