The Copycat & The Search For Belonging

by evilnymphstuff

(SAME) INTRO:

~ Being a future psychology student, I decided to create a new category of posts here on An Evil Nymph’s Blog which will be dealing with some of my weird and crazy theories of life and people. For fun, of course since I don’t have a degree yet. Also I’m not trying to make generalisations and it’ll be best that as you read on imagine putting in the word ‘maybe’ in every sentence. These are only my 19 year old opinions. Anyway, scroll down at your own risk… and enjoy! ~

If you haven’t read the first and previous post in this Psychology series, I strongly recommend you to do so here: Narcissism & Manipulation, because the copycat type we’re going to analyse this week is the one whom I let you have a glimpse of in that post.

For those who remember briefly, we encountered the copycat as a victim of the manipulative narcissist, as being easily influenced without a fixed personality to cling on to, copying aspects of the people he admires to fill this identity void of his.

However, he is not to be pitied entirely.

by evilnymphstuff

my work of art

I’m taking this week’s challenge, Work of Art, as an opportunity to finally show you my first original painting on canvas, which I think I’m calling Homothea’s End. It was painted with acrylics :)

By the way if you have missed my last post, Narcissism & Manipulation, go and read it! It’s the first of a series in which I’m going to post every week on psychological profiles, based on my personal observations of the world. :D

Stay tuned.

Narcissist. Self-centred. These are words that describe those people who are in “pursuit of gratification from vanity” or have egotistic admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes, that derive from arrogant pride.” (Source: Wikipedia)

When I first discovered that word, I could easily identify some of the people I knew having such a behaviour. From what I had seen in my short life, narcissism was not hard to decipher as those people were so open about being like this… and even proud of their self-adoration. One could imagine someone who likes holding a mirror and looking into it 24 hours a day without shame.

However, lately I’ve found another kind of narcissism. One of a more subtle nature.

And more dangerous as well.

Weekly Photo Challenge | On The Move

by evilnymphstuff

So yeah, I guess I’m back to it :) Let’s not waste any more time and be on the move.

This was taken at my little brother’s (he’s the third red one from the right) annual Sports Day in his primary school, which was in fact my former school. :D

It felt good to be back there.

Some Catching Up After My 19th Birthday!

by evilnymphstuff

Hello everyone!!! Welcome back to An Evil Nymph’s Blog!

birthday ootd

I know it’s been a while since I posted anything here, and I intend to do some catching-up to keep my readers updated, and at the same time, give this blog something fresh to show off to those I gave my business card recently, hehe :P

So, first of all, I am now 19 years old, since Saturday 3 May, and thank you for all the birthday wishes, to those who know me on Facebook or Instagram!

Now, if you are new to this blog, let me present myself before going to the updates: I’m currently in the time period that lies between high school and university and thus I spend time at home, aspiring to become a writer, and waiting for July to come, because then I’ll fly from my country, Mauritius, to Malaysia to study in Monash University, and more precisely to get a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

Weekly Photo Challenge | Threshold

by evilnymphstuff

threshold

A new language I’m learning, Italian, a new beginning.

A new country to fly to in a few months, Malaysia, a new beginning.

A new subject to learn, psychology, a new institution, Monash university, a new beginning for me, soon.

This is the threshold I’m standing at, at the moment :)

Can You Really Be Happy?

by evilnymphstuff

By the title, I mean, can you be happy for 100 days in a row?? :) Yes, most of you already know what I’m going to talk about in this post and what has been going on in my life recently while I was away from the blogging world (my most sincere apologies for that!!!), which is the #100happydays challenge!

The challenge is to post a picture everyday for 100 consecutive days online on any social media platform of my choice (I chose Instagram!) showing the little things that makes me happy. The main goal is to make people realise that happiness is not a destination, but a lifestyle :)

Thus, I decide to share my first 14 days in the challenge here:

I Reached 50,000 Words!

by evilnymphstuff

This is a special post to announce that I’ve got past the 50k words mark in my novel-in-progress, a novel I’ve been writing since the beginning of the year – yeah if it was NaNoWriMo I would already be past 50k well before – as those who have been following my posts this year know.

And I didn’t realise that my previous post was actually my 400th! A neat number :) This is the 401st one.

Back to the novel I’m writing, it’s actually a project I’ve challenged myself to complete before going to university in July, and being on the 50k words line, I’m halfway through! Wasn’t sure if I should write ‘only’ or ‘already’ ;) I just feel that the story will evolve till past 100k words!

It’s urban fantasy, an idea, complex and continuously expanding, which was planted into my brain since I was 13 but which only became a story in 2012 for Camp NaNoWriMo in August and which I’ve been writing and re-writing since, never coming up with a completed story. Until now. Now I feel ready to finish that 3rd attempted first draft of this novel! I’m determined :)

If any of you want to know what this obsessive novel-in-progress of mine is basically all about, you can check out this short story I made based on it, for the Create A World Writing Contest by The Dark Globe which I actually won: CLICK HERE!

Anyway, thinking of novels… I made a book haul recently on my YouTube channel! Here it is:

Enjoy!

Tell me anything in the comments! About writing, reading… whatever! Let’s chat :)

Weekly Photo Challenge | Perspective

by evilnymphstuff

For this week’s challenge, which is ‘perspective‘, I was inspired by you, yes you, people who read my blog, and especially those who read about my post on Candid Street Photography, and that’s because you’ve told me how you liked that first photo with the colouful umbrellas…

And here are photos of the same place, with the same umbrellas, but taken in different perspectives.

look up

 

Looking up.

look down

And looking down to them.

So what do you think of this week’s theme, perspective? Feel free to show me your own interpretation!

Planning A ‘Going To University’ Video Series | I NEED YOUR HELP!

by evilnymphstuff

Hey everyone! If you’ve been following my recent posts, you might notice how I’ve been much into photography lately… and more active in the blogosphere as well! However, on the other hand, I’ve also started to vlog again, posting videos more regularly – every Friday – and since I’m currently in that stage between high school and university, I’d like to cover this very subject as a video project to keep me going.

I already know what university I’m going to attend in July – soon! – and my place is already booked and all so I guess that I will soon be doing ‘packing’ videos and such stuff, but I’d also like to do Q&A videos.

And I’d like the questions to come from you guys.

As me anything in the comments below, everything you want to know about going to university, especially if you’re a student applying yourself this year. Even if you’re not a student, just tell me whatever information you would like to know about this high school to university process.

I’ll try my best to answer all of you.

Meanwhile here’s my latest video:

My First Time! | Candid Street Photography

by evilnymphstuff

Yesterday I decided to give candid street photography a go. I was going to be in the capital city anyway, so I thought, why not? My adventurous mind was getting all thrilled at the thought that I was indeed going to be alone, since the friend I’d asked to come with me wasn’t free, but reason warned me not to be too crazy so I opted for a safe area – a tourist one!

Here’s the main street of Le Caudan Waterfront, where I chose to do candid street photography for the first time, all by myself:

caudan

Yes I know. Colourful umbrellas ♥

So I put on my hat, wore Candy (my camera) around my neck and pretended to be a tourist! I even spoke English (we usually speak French), stared around as if I’ve never been there (although I’ve been a thousand times since I was born), smiled… and followed the crowd, feigning to take shots of the place when in fact I was shooting… the people themselves.

Weekly Photo Challenge | Abandoned

by evilnymphstuff

abandoned plant

This was actually a bean plant which I had planted and taken care of a few years ago but then mosquito-transmitted diseases became common in my country and for safety reasons I was recommended to stop dealing with plants.

abandoned plant 2

I thus abandoned my bean plant and here it is, definitely useful in my photographic amateur journey! ;) Which I’m recording on Flickr if you want to check it out!

Have a great week!
