Aspiring Young Writers: This is a Message for You.

by evilnymphstuff

Many teens have the secret dream of becoming a famous writer just like for example J.K. Rowling.

But most of them end up burying this dream deep into the dirt long before they reach adulthood and when they are past this age, becoming a writer was just like saying I wish to become a Hollywood celebrity or marry a Royal family. These of course can happen, but it happens only to 1 in a million of people.

But why do people assume that the 1 in a million can’t be YOU?

If we get discouraged and slowly build a lack of faith especially in teenage years, obviously, we won’t likely reach the dream… 100% determination and independent voice are what we need.

If we go back to our childhood, we notice that parents and relatives constantly asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up. We mainly said things like ‘pop star’ but as years passed we began to think of the possibility of achieving this job and we thought, well ‘teacher’ or ‘doctor’ is more reasonable… and approved by the others.

Sites of the Month: April 2012

by evilnymphstuff

‘Busy’ and ‘Moody’ – these two words described this month and are mostly the products of my trip to Malaysia, yet which I’ll never regret of course, because I have to adapt myself again to Mauritius, to school and activities at the same – which includes blogging! I’m still struggling to get back into my routine. *sigh*

Anyway let the list of my bookmarked websites of this month of April begin!

10 Awesome Things I did in Malaysia!

by evilnymphstuff

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do this post earlier but I’m very busy with school and I’m having some mood swings too – typical of a teen :P – but anyway, it’s obvious that my short one-week trip to Malaysia hasn’t left me untouched. Sincerely I love it there, I love to discover another culture… and be among people who only have either an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy SII! :D

Seriously, if you’ve already gone there or if one day you go there, I’ll make sure in this post that you haven’t/won’t missed anything. Feel free to add more to the list. Otherwise… here are the 10 awesome things I did in Malaysia: 

1. Shopping à volonté!

Storeys and storeys of shops… some especially selling high quality shoes at a low price ;)

Truly the variety and affordable range of products you can get in Kuala Lumpur mainly are infinite!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects + Sun

by evilnymphstuff

Hey I’m back!

And the first thing I thought of when I saw my laptop at last was to catch up on the weekly photo challenges! :) These posts are just so fun to do.

So here we go!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

I have two interpretations for this one. All taken in Malaysia. :D

The first one is most likely to be obvious for those familiar with Malaysia, especially Kuala Lumpur (where I was) because the one thing you absolutely have to visit there if you have the chance to go is the Twin Towers!

Promoting Your Blog By Link Exchange

by evilnymphstuff

In my Advice on Guest Posting post I promised you to talk about another and easier way to promote your blog via other blogs, which is link exchange! So here I’m keeping my word :)

What is link exchange?

It is a very simple process to increase traffic on your website: a blogger contacts another one and asks for a link exchange, which means that he/she will give away his website’s link and details for the other blogger to advertise it on its site, like for example in a sidebar, and vice versa.

Uh?

I was blind.

At least, that’s what they all thought.

When I was born, the horrified cry of my mother greeted me before I could even taste human air. My father was yelling at the nurses.

“Get it out! At once!”

I never saw them again.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

by evilnymphstuff

When I think of arranged, it reminds me strangely of my childhood, when everything was… arranged. I mean, I was very obedient, followed the rules, predictable… I have been ‘arranged’ in a particular way.

And I was fond of the Smurfs storyboards!

So well arranged, right? :P I don’t have the whole collection though.

Guest Post: I Was in a Mentally Abusive Relationship (PART 2)

by evilnymphstuff

See Part 1 here!

******

On the way home the boy was visibly shaking. He drove with one hand on the wheel and the other holding mine in a death grip. My friend and his brother sat in the back. He began to purposely swing the car in and out of the ditch (red flag #6 - reckless disregard for the wellbeing of those around him). Every time I would tell him to stop and every time he would apologize or say he forgot my words. Again, I couldn’t tell if he was joking or seriously trying to kill us. I was terrified. I prayed all the way home begging God not to let me die that night. Later, my friend told me she thought he drove off the road every time she and his brother started cuddling in the back. Perhaps he was jealous and wanted to distract them. I don’t know.

We stopped at his house to change into normal clothes and go to after prom. When he went into his room to change, my friend and I heard an awful racket. It sounded as if someone was taking a hammer and smashing it into everything in sight. When he came out his hand had a big bleeding gash. He claimed he had been trying to kill a spider (red flag #7 – destructive). Terrified, I confessed everything to my friend, including my worry of losing her. She felt obligated to tell her boyfriend who said he was too unstable in that moment for me to officially break up with him. Nonetheless, I felt I had their support to end things within the next few days.

Guest Post: I Was in a Mentally Abusive Relationship (PART 1)

by evilnymphstuff

It’s a long guest post – so long that I will cut it in two parts and thus publish it in two posts – but it’s so beautiful and original that I just can’t find myself to cut anything from it! Just take a seat and some of your favourite drink and relax while you are carried away in the story as you scroll down…

I Was in a Mentally Abusive Relationship

 

Towards the end of my junior year of high school I had my first ‘real’ boyfriend. The relationship was awkward at best and terrifying at worst. If not for the intervention of a few glorious friends, things could have gotten much worse. The actions of my friends helped me realize the horrid situation I was in and gave me the courage to escape.  It is important to me that all teenagers, regardless of age, sex or confidence level be aware of the signs that lead to abusive relationships. Even if you don’t get involved in one, your friends may and you need to be prepared.
Before I go further into my story, I’d like to remind you that my words are only part of the story. I cannot say what would have happened if the relationship continued and I cannot comment on the boy’s reasoning for his actions. Things may have appeared different from his point of view. This is the story of how I felt during the three month relationship.
