A Bunny Rant About Google+ & YouTube “Just Married”

by evilnymphstuff

*I was thinking about vlogging about this because it is mainly on the changes YouTube has been undergoing lately, but I’m still in exams and blogging about it is much easier and less time consuming. With that said…*

bunny-(8)When I first integrated myself in the YouTube community it was for the sole purpose of watching piano tutorials and covers of my favourite songs because at that time I was self-teaching myself how to play the piano. It was in 2009. I was only 13-14 years old then. Afterwards, after one year, I started making video montages with my favourite TV series at that time: Merlin, and as most of you know my vidding channel was born.

I remember how at that time my YouTube channel was so customizable with the transparency option especially, with which I could thankfully put up a favourite wallpaper of mine to serve as my channel’s background image. I remember how a YouTube channel back then was like a… profile page, with friends as well as subscribers and channel groups and more.

But YouTube’s format gradually changed as the years passed… until we came to the current channel format: less customizable, more professional, which led to a kind of a division between the content creators and the viewers… when in truth we are all equal, and creators are viewers as well as vice versa.

“Please Accept Me As I Am”

by evilnymphstuff

This is an article that I had written for my school’s School Magazine 2012/13. Now that the magazine is officially and finally published and out there, I think that it’s then eventually all right to at last share with you what I wrote. Hope you like it! Don’t forget to share your views as well in the comment box below :)

   “I won’t have a gay son.”

   “Then, mom, you don’t have a son.”

   “Fine.”

 

   In the award-winning television film, Prayers for Bobby, Bobby Griffith decided to end his life because he could not live with the guilt of being homosexual. Although he had gone to live on his own with an understanding cousin and his caring boyfriend, he could no longer bear it. He could not live while knowing that his mother did not accept him as he was.

   This film is based on a true story.

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.

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.

Guest Post: I Have Cancer and I Am Beautiful

by evilnymphstuff

I’m still in the mood ‘fight-against-cancer’ so I requested Jackie Clark (I talked about her in my World Cancer Day post) to write a guest post on cancer and beauty, which she did marvellously well on my makeup blog. By the way, it’s going to be the very first guest post of this blog! Yay!

If ever you wish to be a guest blogger here, you just have to email me on magic.daphy@gmail.com (yeah I know it’s childish but I created it when I was 11 and I don’t want to change it! :P)

So here’s what she wrote for An Evil Nymph’s blog for us today :)

I Have Cancer and I Am Beautiful

by Jackie Clark

You have mesothelioma cancer. You have breast cancer. You have uterine cancer.

It’s a fact.

Now comes treatment, doctors, and more prognosis than you could’ve ever imagined in one person’s life.

None of it has anything to do with the fact that you are beautiful. You are a beautiful person and you can’t forget that despite cancer your life is precious. Life is wonderful and you can make the best of every situation—cancer diagnosis or not.

You’ll need to remind yourself of this every day.  You have your loved ones-they’ll support you.  They will give you something to smile about every day, as they always have.

At the end of the day, the only person that can hold you up is you.  You need to maintain your strength, your self-respect and the positivity that will not only carry you, but those that need you.

You’re beautiful and I’ll prove it.

Go look in the mirror.

There is nothing more powerful than looking in the mirror and liking — no, loving — what you see.

Don’t like what’s looking back at you?

Let’s do something about it.

Nothing Can Steal Your Beauty – no, not even Cancer.

by evilnymphstuff

Yesterday was World Cancer Day, and earlier, in my makeup blog, I had the pleasure to welcome a guest blogger, Jackie Clark who wrote an article on women having cancer, to tell them that it doesn’t mean that they have to stop caring about their body, their beauty… You can read the post here: Keeping Beauty in Your Life.

Jackie writes in honour of women having mesothelioma cancer and has her own blog: The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog. You can also follow her on Twitter @CancerAlliance and believe me, her posts are worth it.

SOPA!? What. The. Hell?

by evilnymphstuff

My little sister was about to do some research on Wikipedia but it was blacked out. Didn’t really understand the situation at first. But then I was about to post this week’s photo challenge on WordPress, but when I entered the site, I saw that all the Freshly Pressed were censored! I then clicked on one of them and saw something like a strike… while going to my mail to see whether anyone else was talking about this… Everyone is eventually talking about this and spreading the message… and really, this PIPA/SOPA is serious matter, guys…

A Real Man Never Hits A Woman

by evilnymphstuff
They married and lived happily ever after until the end of their lives… or not? That’s where the story really begins, by their union, for weeks and months they remain in happiness, in love, pierced by Cupid’s arrow, entwined in their blood dripping from an illusion which is often called Love. Unfortunately for most women, it was indeed an illusion. A dream. And she ends up waking up one morning to realize that the man who sleeps next to her is a stranger.
It begins with a small slap, a sweet blow, a  nice reproach. Then the man becomes monster when the situation hardens into consecutive shoves, violent slaps in the face and insults that stabs the entire body. The man she thought was the One this time is actually the worst of what she might have had.
But a woman loves her husband, and when she loves, she forgives. He then apologizes with all his heart and she welcomes him back into her life. He sends her flowers and she kisses him.They again become lovers like the first time. And history repeats itself. The cycle continues…
