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.

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.

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:

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.

Come To The Ocean Of Love…

by evilnymphstuff

Happy Labour Day everyone!

This week’s Picture it & Write comes a little earlier this week, because there’s going to be a surprise on Friday ;) So stay tuned!

All right, so without delay, enjoy my contribution:

Come to the ocean of love… 

My ears sprang up; I put down my cup of tea and daily newspaper and reached out to the radio.

…seven seas…

I turned up the volume.

Come to the ocean of love…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

by evilnymphstuff

I wasn’t sure which photos to post for this week’s challenge, which is Culture, since there has been nothing in my life that has been photographically culturally interesting… (lol) but, browsing through this year’s photos, I found these:

My Looking-Glass Self

by evilnymphstuff

I’m late again, sorry for that, but I’m rather busy in this beginning of the second term of the school year; anyway, here’s your awaited Picture it & Write for this week:

looking in the mirror

 

“Happy 18th birthday, Lena!”

Their enthusiastic voices still echoed in my head, although the party was over for more than two hours. If I closed my eyes I would see their faded grins and narrow eyes and high cheekbones… I would feel their hands on me, congratulating me, wishing me all the best things in the world.

A Warrior’s Hair

by evilnymphstuff

This week’s Picture it & Write:

braids hair

“Can you braid my hair, please?”

Ciara grinned at her mother and widened her eyes in the way that would make any glacier melt. She knew that she was doing this every morning and that every morning she would be late to school because of this.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweet Kisses From Home

by evilnymphstuff

Since I missed last week’s photo challenge, I’m going to merge both the one I missed and this week’s into one and same post… and photo: Home and Kiss together, which makes Kisses from Home :)

valentine's day red rose

This is the flower that my father gave to my mother on St. Valentine’s Day. For him, it’s a tradition to honour the woman he loves every year with a beautiful fresh morning red rose. (at 6 a.m.!)

I’m doing a Sunday post, I know, but this is to let you know that I won’t be at home on Monday and Tuesday, since from today I am going to celebrate the new year in a hotel! As the tradition wishes it to. Well, the Chinese-Mauritians’ tradition, hehe.

The Mind Of A Boy In The Body Of A Girl

by evilnymphstuff

Here’s my contribution to this week’s Picture it & Write :) Enjoy:

neglected

My gloves, my pearls… My ballerina shoes. I left them all behind as I lead myself away from the life I had had to endure.

Indeed, it was over…

Losing Sight Of Your Priorities? Find Them Back!

by evilnymphstuff

I had a long weekend. Friday was a public holiday, here in Mauritius. Yet, as I’m writing this, on Monday morning, I realise that even though I should have had more time to do what I had to do, I in fact did not. I even didn’t have the time to check out WordPress and check my mail as I used to!

What happened exactly?

Well, on Friday, I got my hair cut (again haha, I tend to keep it as short as a boy’s), then since it was a holiday I went to my grandma’s and during my spare time, I blogged (my last post) and did Art homework. Fine.

It was on Saturday that I lost it.

My mind, I guess.

An Immortal Child

by evilnymphstuff

Here’s this week’s Picture it & Write, and my contribution:

Dear An Evil Nymph,

I am sick. Sick and tired of this life. A thousand years had passed since I was born as a vampire. No, I was bitten, like everyone else. I was only a baby at that time. Left to myself.

Guest Post: Top 3 Recreational Activities for Troubled Teens

by evilnymphstuff

The adolescent years can be quite turbulent for young people, as they face a new set of physical and emotional challenges. Even teens that live in a stable home environment have a difficult time when they reach their teens. The situation can escalate when both parents work full time and have little time to spend with their troubled teens.

troubled teen

Many parents of troubled teens resort to boarding schools as the solution to helping their young people overcome “teen problems.” Although boarding schools are not miracle cures, they do offer a solid structure that includes academic education, vocational training, outdoor activities, etc. that can keep teens busy and challenged. The following recreational activities are but a few that can help relieve some of the tension and stress that teens go through at this time of their lives.
