    @silent-radiance We could stick to older stuff that can be found on project Gutenberg for free. Pretty sure anything older than 50 years that’s of note can be found on there. I’d be in for reading some gothic horror. Jekyll and Hyde is actually an interesting story about coping with homosexuality in Victorian England. As for shows, most anime…[Read more]

    It’s normal to judge, honestly. It’s good that you’re trying to get past it, though. Keep at it. No reason for mediocrity. Always try to do better.

    I’m pretty much a recovering alcoholic, and I can say for certain that you have no need to drink if you don’t want to. Drinking is fun for some people, and some people are fun to be around drunk(not most, […]

    I wish we could still create groups, it would help to get this started.

    Crazy thought, but maybe we should start some kind of media club, where we collectively read or watch something and discuss? It’d be a way to have new members make friends more easily, and foster social ties in the community. We’d need something like 7-10 people to get this started though. Anyone interested? We can hammer out the details when I…[Read more]

    • I wish we could still create groups, it would help to get this started.

    • @hopefullylesspretentious I think this could be a good idea, you can always make a thread within a group since it’ll still show up in the “On The Forums” section and attract attention. It might be something I’m interested in doing too, this would ideally generate discussion and can be a good form of group learning (gathering insight from…[Read more]

    I have returned from Ghana. Highlight: Delivering a baby by iPhone flashlight during a blackout and having it named after me. Also, seeing wild elephants on safari in Mole.

    Change your track of study? I just moved away from premed into some combination of compsci, math, management, and polisci. Then again, if you’re not in the US, that’s not so simple.

    Found the scrubs I was wearing the last time I saw someone violently die stuffed in a drawer somewhere and had a pretty bad flashback. How do other people with PTSD cope?

    • You could try therapy, meditation or yoga @hopefullylesspretentious, I’m sure you will find the right thing that will benefit you in overcoming PTSD, you deserve all the best, feel free to message me anytime if you want to vent or chat, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • I second what oli is saying and also maybe talking with a specialist I very much suggest looking into the root of fear and what is conditioning, peace be with you. <3

    Huzzah for the end of finals. I’m going to go crawl into bed with a stack of indie horror games I’ve been waiting to play, a small library, a lineup of things to netflix, 3 six packs of craft beer, a litre of Wild Turkey, and a girl. I’ll report back after the break.
