Tomorrow I have my first Social Psychology class.
Wish me luck, everyone. ;-; Test taking has never been my best skill.
If you’ve never read The Yellow Wallpaper or had to for school you should do that.
The author suffered from psychosis but as a woman in the late 1800’s the “professional” attitude was that she was just a dumb silly woman and needed to rest in bed until she just got over it. She was outright forbidden from writing because it would be “too stimulating” to all those dumb hysterical womanly problems and she had to do it in secret just to cling to what sanity she could.
In response to this bullshit she finally wrote this brilliant short psychological horror story that will give you the fucking creeps in all sorts of ways, from the atmosphere and events to the story to the horrifying culture it reflects.
She sent a copy directly to her shitty-ass doctor who never responded and went on being a shithead until he died, but to many other people the story was a wake-up call and still considered a groundbreaking feminist work.
It was inspirational to horror writer’s like Lovecraft though I think the “feminist” part might have gone over his head. Also it is better than his stuff anyway.

This is one of my actual favorite peices of literature, and I dream of a world where this was acknowledged as the birth of western psychological horror. BECAUSE IT IS.
I’m looking at the story I’m writing for class…and it’s getting way too long. I’m not going to finish it in time. So I’ll have to save it for my portfolio, but that means I still have to write a new story for tomorrow. I’m just hungry and tired and LACKING INSPIRATION AAAAUGH

Mum, at one point a social worker and psychologist, always says that this time of the year is the worst time for people because of the weather, the lack of cheerful holidays, and the impending sorrow that spring has not sprung yet.
This time of year also makes it difficult if you’re already facing struggles due to lack of distractions. It makes the bad things worse.
I am inclined to agree
Spring just needs to get here, everyone I care about seems to be suffering and I can’t do anything to help, so winter and the doom and gloom of snow and cold is officially pissing me off.

Writing a ghost story is hard, especially with two sarcastic characters.
What kind of bullshit is this language? Apparently, “pikapikaa” (translates to something like “quickly”) is a real finnish standard language word. And not even only when Pikachu says it.
