How not to get yourself hospitalized, or Just because you like Kraft Dinner doesn't mean you are mentally ill. · 3:35am Sep 28th, 2018

As part of my job as a crisis worker, one of the things I need to be able to do is assist in the process of placing people who are mentally ill and in crisis on a hold. Now... a lot of people probably start thinking of getting '5150'd' - to borrow from California's statutory code related mental health hospitalizations - but it's... really more complicated than that. A lot more complicated. So much so that, after visiting Ebon Quill, I ended up having to drive the entire diagonal length

For Those Who Might Worry · 2:58am Aug 24th, 2020

Things are going much, much better for me - both situationally and psychologically. And once September rolls around, I will soon have time to write some more! Huzzah!

I honestly haven't officially started the next chapter, but my mind has been bursting with so much that it's going to fly onto the page once I have a decent chunk to commit to it.

Thank you for all who have stuck with this do far! Nearly 6,000 views! I am blown away!

Hello everypony, long time no see. I know how e̳̝a̜͙̥̝͎̺g͎̞er̟̰ ̖͕̯ everyone is for some miraculous pony words or the like. Well good news and good news. I got a better job and finished my last day at a job so aw̛f̡ul ͤ͐̎ that if I never mention or think about it again, I will die an infinitely happier man.

Today I come with a game r̷e͏c͘o̴mm̨e͠nd̷ation͞ ̸ and I haven't even finished it yet, I just got to a point in the game best summarized by this iconic meme.

Pony Psychology: Diamond Tiara · 11:11am Oct 15th, 2015

An interesting discussion brewed up over on Bookplayer’s blog. Bookplayer is of the position that last weekend’s episode fundamentally changed Diamond Tiara’s character, while my position is that it is a natural continuation of it and that the character hasn’t changed beyond reacting to circumstance.

Bookplayer asked for specific things in canon that show this, so I’m going to an inquisition on Diamond Tiara as she appeared in season 1 episode 12: Call of the Cutie.

Pony Psychology: Fluttershy · 1:28am Nov 7th, 2015

She's timid beyond compare and the embodiment of kindness, so how does Fluttershy have such an intimidating presence to her when she wants it?

Let’s take a look, and let’s start right at the beginning.

Holocaust jokes are never acceptable · 4:20pm Oct 5th, 2015

When it comes to offensive humour, when have you crossed a line that nobody should ever cross?
Here is Doug's stance on the issue.

PRO:TIP The rest of the blog will make more sense if you watch the video.

I generally agree with most of his points and I do want to particularly emphasise the Too Soon concept which some people seem to have problems getting.

The Story of My Inferiority Complex · 4:29am Mar 19th, 2016

I couldn't sleep. I needed to get this off my mind.

Earlier today, I went to a Twitch stream featuring some of the major members of the group The Good Hie List. Writers like Flammenwerfer, Anonpencil, and numerous others were on a Skype call just answering random questions and talking about whatever topic happened to come to mind.

New psych. · 3:05am Mar 11th, 2018

I've been seeing a new psychologist ever since October last year.
They've been helping me steer away from issues related to anxiety.

I've been getting more active again, so I hope I can maintain this forward progress.

Oh, yeah, Pearl's story got three four new chapters today.
Send me your feeeeeedback. I live on it as much as the Changelings do on love.

For the Moments When I am Frozen in Mute Witness · 1:53am Dec 13th, 2018

I am not very good with words.

... Perhaps I should amend that a bit. I am very good with typing words. I am not very good with speaking them. Especially when they are words that I need to say to express myself about how I am thinking. How I am feeling. How I... am.

Horney's Three Neurotic Stances and MLP: A comparison. · 5:19pm Apr 19th, 2017

Today's psychology class was pretty interesting. That's a strange thing for me to say, given how I'm usually bored senseless in that class, but today's lecture on personality honestly hooked me in. Of all the things we went through, however, one stuck with me: The bit where they discussed Karen Horney, specifically on what she said about the Neurotic Stance. To simplify it to just the bare essentials for the sake of time, she stated that a neurosis was a counterproductive way of dealing with

Trixie Pretty Clearly Has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. · 12:16am Oct 31st, 2019

One of the things I really appreciate about My Little Pony, is that it showed time and time again that people don’t have to be neurotypical to be a successful part of society. From the star of the show Twilight Sparkle having Obsessive–Compulsive Personality Disorder (NOT the same as OCD!) to Maud Pie likely being Autistic to Starlight Glimmer showing some signs of having moderate

New Character · 1:16pm Feb 21st, 2017

Cerberus Junior - What happens if Chrysalis gets it in her head that having demon in her Hive's gene pool would be nice. A good representation of Freud's tripartite model of the psyche. Three heads, one pair of chitinous wings, canine frame, hooves on hind legs, paws on front legs, changeling texture & surface.

Right head - Id. Impulsive, uncaring of social norms, always getting him into trouble.
Aura: Pink.
Magical Specialization: Offensive spells and conjuring.

Pareidolia · 12:14am Mar 23rd, 2018

I promised some kind of summary post for my Points of Canon series, and since Season 8 is rapidly approaching, I guess I’m running out of time to say whatever it is that I have to say. I will, of course, continue the series, and it’s kind of silly to write any kind of conclusion when it’s so obviously incomplete, that I’m in a middle of a season.

Especially the unkind words.

Body Language and Nonverbal Communication Part 1: Anger and Fear · 5:06pm Jun 1st, 2018

Body language and nonverbal communication play a large role in what we are trying to communicate in person, so it stands to reason that it’s just as important in writing.  One thing that I’ve been hearing from a lot of the writers that I spend time with is that writing non-verbal communication is often difficult, daunting, frustrating, or downright intimidating to do well.  While I think some of it is largely due to overthinking on the part of the author (let’s be real, no one is

University Tomorrow · 10:35pm Sep 21st, 2015

So yeah, I start university tomorrow. Mixed feelings, but hopefully I'll have a lot of free time (so I can finish this damn chapter, among other things).

Between breaking the ice with my peers, attending student events and nights out, and learning the layout of the city, I suppose I'll be quite busy this week, either way.

Most promisingly, studying at university level will hopefully allow me to surround myself with those that possess a similar attitude to - and aptitude for - learning.
