Sites Of The Month: July 2012

by evilnymphstuff

This month seemed very long to me because so much happened in these 30 days…

At the beginning I remembered I was much concerned about causes such as bullying and I wish to remind you again that YOU’RE NEVER ALONE. Whether you want to help or seek help…

Check out Bullying.org – where you’re NOT alone.

Join the It Gets Better Project where we give hope to the LGBT youth.

Why I’m Addicted To Food.

by evilnymphstuff

Why can’t I stop eating sometimes?
I think maybe it’s because, although I’m not depressed and much happy, there’s yet something that’s missing in my life…

But what?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

by evilnymphstuff

Yesterday I attended the last day of the MUN (Model United Nations) Conference of this year – organised for students… and for us to think of a brighter future :) We all sang ‘We are the world’ in the end of the closing ceremony:

Do you see how beautiful it is when all the lights are turned off except the ones on stage?

Reflection

by evilnymphstuff

Yeah it’s time for this week’s Picture it & Write! And again I’m inspiring myself from a short story I’m progressively building at random, depending on the picture Ermilia hosts every week, called ‘Unpredicted’.

NB: the progress of the story itself relies on the pictures given.

Read what happened previously in the story:

1. Your Eyes… And Mine

2. An Escape Attempt (keep scrolling for this one, it’s at the very end of the post!)

3. The Love Key… Among Others

4. This Is Your Life. And It’s All You’ve Got.

5. Destructive Yet Inspiring

Now, here’s this week’s picture and contribution:

5 EFFECTIVE Things To Do When You’re Upset

by evilnymphstuff

Often when I’m depressed/upset and don’t know what to do, I opened my Google Chrome browser and search for ‘things to do when you’re upset’ on Google. Much to my disappointment the lists given weren’t that useful as they mostly tackled the long-term depression period, while I’m just searching for some things to do NOW, stuck at home, to cheer me up. Also, there is no particular order in these list, except that maybe some of them start with the most effective one: help someone.

Sincerely, I think it’s ridiculous to place it on top of the list. Of course, helping others enables us to think of something else except our worries, yet as I said, it’s long-term – it needs preparation, planning, thinking… Well, all the things I don’t want to do instantly when I’m depressed. I have to calm down my depression first.

But how?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

by evilnymphstuff

All right, I have two photos for this week’s challenge.

Attempt 1:

This is a photo I took while flipping through a magazine. I love reading although I’m so busy these days that my reading pace slowed down. Anyway, I tried to capture a photo while flipping a book but this one’s better :)

17 Things I Know At 17

by evilnymphstuff

evilnymphstuff:

Nowadays teens at 17 are much wiser. And this is due to our various experiences or scenes we have witnessed. Doesn’t mean that our life was full of epiphanies. We learn with our mistakes, we learn how to heal after being hurt…
Anyway, this is an inspiring list – a must-read!!

Originally posted on KatrinaLabra:

  1. What made you happy once, might not make you happy now.
  2. Everyone knows they’re going to die, but nobody believes it.
  3. To succeed, you must also know how to fail.
  4. Don’t believe everything you see, sometimes believe what you feel.
  5. ‘Sorry’ doesn’t mean it’s going to be okay, giving up, beginning or the end – it’s more than that.
  6. Destiny happens by means of your choices, not chances.
  7. The best things in life are worth experiencing with closed eyes.
  8. You don’t have to fit in, build your own stage instead.
  9. Instincts. Hold on to them.
  10. Not everyone you love has to stick around.
  11. People change. It’s a sad fact.
  12. Pretending it’s okay, doesn’t make the problem go away.
  13. There are some walks you have to take alone.
  14. Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hang on too long.*
  15. Something still exists as long as there’s someone to remember it.*
  16. Happiness is…

My World In Pictures [Special 200th Post!]

by evilnymphstuff

Hello dear readers! As you’re reading this I would have pressed the ‘publish’ button for the 200th time since An Evil Nymph was born! Yeah! :)

I did a special post for my 100th post, so why not for the 200th one? For those who have been following me for a while, you might have read it: My Writing Mistakes [Special 100th post]. Because it was entirely on writing, I’d like to approach my 200th post differently: with pictures!

I was fooling around with my phone [camera + photo editor] instead of doing my homework during the weekend… (don’t worry, the work was done in the end) and I’d like to share some of them today.

Enjoy!

This Is Your Life. And It’s All You’ve Got.

by evilnymphstuff

This post is written for this week’s Picture It & Write hosted by Ermilia.

Caleb doesn’t and will never love me.

I stopped on my tracks and waited for the road to be clear of any vehicles. Only a few more steps before I reached my dear apartment after a long day’s work at the college establishment. Shadow was surely waiting for me impatient; she rarely slept these last few days since we went on our trip which covered most of the Europe continent.

The Power To Help Is In Our Hands

by evilnymphstuff

As from today, I’ll be trying to display my own original pictures instead of Google Images. It’s better this way :) and more fun!

Back in 2009-2010, I badly wanted to become a clinical psychologist. Of course, the writer was still simmering inside, but I needed something else… I didn’t want to study writing because I don’t want to be compelled of doing something I love and I feared to stop loving it if I was too much forced into it. 

Today, I’m reconsidering this.

Because I recently remembered why I actually wanted to meddle with mental illnesses.

The reason wasn’t to be called ‘Doctor’ or to have money or even because I considered myself as being one of the mad people. No. The primary reason that pulled me into psychology and struggling to remember all the possible names of the various mental disorders was that I just wanted to help.

I could have become a doctor, but I didn’t want to study science in high school and had already opted for languages anyway. So the nearest possible career was becoming a psychologist. I remembered that I just felt so excited to be able to cure, or at least counsel, teens like me who suffered depression, bipolar moods…

Really, this should be the main reason for people to engage in medicine: the power to help others.
