What do you think?I'm working on a new story; here's the synopsis:What do you think?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's 1908, and professor Robert Heller is an ambitious psychology professor from Brown University. He's in the midst of traveling across the country, interviewing various mental patients for a novel he's writing. When he arrives at The Ridges, a notorious insane asylum in the heart of Ohio, he meets a very different patient: fifteen-year-old Oliver Fray, institutionalized by his uncle at the age of ten for stabbing his aunt to death. But as Heller explores further into the dark secrets surrounding the murder, he starts to realize that there's more going on in the never-ending corridors of The Ridges than he could have ever imagined.
Here's an excerpt of chapter one, since I've been really sick for the past few days and had nothing to do.

The Seder and Palm SundayToday is the beginning of Passover! Most Christians are probably familiar with the Jewish holiday, and probably aware that today is also called Palm Sunday. Today we celebrate "Triumphal Entry" when Jesus rode a baby donkey into Jerusalem, making His declaration that He was the Messiah.The Seder and Palm Sunday2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is no coincidence that Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) is the same day as the beginning of Passover, and that the "Passion Week" of Jesus also coincides with the week-long celebration of Passover. I would like to share with you a message that I heard. This sermon was taught by Pastor Tim Mackie and it gave me insight into what it was actually like having that Last Supper with Jesus. It also explains how Jesus transformed the ancient Passover meal to tell a new story of humanity's redemption through His death, and how His resurrection speaks of the trump of God's love over evil.
I took notes as best I could and you can read them below. I apologize if my note

Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!

Does Jesus Hate Religion? Kinda, Sorta, Not ReallyBALANCE: Does Jesus Hate Religion? Kinda, Sorta, Not Really by Kevin DeYoungDoes Jesus Hate Religion? Kinda, Sorta, Not Really4 years ago in Personal More Like This
There’s a new You Tube video going viral and it’s about Jesus and religion.
Specifically how Jesus hates religion.
The video—which in a few days has gone from hundreds of views to thousands to millions—shows Jefferson Bethke, who lives in the Seattle area, delivering a well-crafted, sharply produced, spoken word poem. The point, according to Bethke, is “to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion.” In the past few days I’ve seen this video pop up all over Facebook. I’ve had people from my church say they like it. Some has asked me what I think. Others have told me there’s something off about the poem, but they can’t quite articulate what it is. I’ll try to explain what that is in a moment. But first wat

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it's just not that good. It's trying to be good, it has potential, but it's not. And your taste is why your work disappoints you.
A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn't have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story.
It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I've ever met

After going to the bathroom
Me: Holy crap! The sink fell!!!

And then the other roommate came home and was (in her own words) " ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ﾉ︵ ┻━┻ "
But as the first roommate put it: "The good thing about not having a bathroom sink is that you can just reach through the counter where the sink should be to grab whatever is underneath."

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser
LOVEI noticed, that I as a christian am ready to believe a lot of things from the bible. I believe that miracles still happen. People can get healed from illness and spiritual oppression. And the Holy Spirit is a real person who we can welcome into our life and feel his guidance through every step in every day.LOVE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But one fundamental truth I realized I stumble at: that God loves me. He LOVES ME!!! And I think a lot of christians have a hard time believing it. Not really accepting this truth can make us frustrated or we fall into legalism. I also just realized...if we don't believe this, we are calling God a liar. It's like saying that Jesus's death on the cross had other motives than: "God so LOVED the world that he gave his only begotten Son..." Somehow crazy to state this and yet, if i'm honest with myself: i'm guilty of unbelief in this area.
But what do we expect to fuel us in our walk with God? How do we expect to love others as Christ loved us if we do not daily believe again that God's

A personal story about bullyingSILENT BULLYING. When I was in elementary school bulluying started to rise up on the agenda of teachers and parents. I know my parents went to meetings to learn more about what bullying was. They talked about kids getting called names, getting hit and a lot of other things, what they didn't talk about was the silent bullying.A personal story about bullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The bullying with no words, with no actions other than looks, sighs and giggles behind the person's back and some occasional words.
From around third grade to sixth grade I was a victim to silent bullying and no one noticed. Even today people speak about how happy I was as a kid, how imaginative and so on... In my diary at the time it says nothing about being bullied - I didn't understand I was.
I thought I deserved the looks, that they were right when they commented my height, that I was ugly, how I waved my hands around when I talked, how I sat, how I walked and my hair... which was said to be a wig.
