.at night, something mad.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
climbs into bed with me and
i go to war with myself -
words i do not want sit on the tip
of my tongue, so i bite the whole
thing off - crimson droplets fall
from the sky, and i start bleeding
rain - dead babies, their heartbeats
slipping through the cracks in my
floorboards - kettles abandoning
pots and then finding that neither
can function properly - white sheets,
pillowcases, walls and white faces -
a rabid cat clawing at the inside of
my temple, let me out - krill in the
bellies of whales, their hearts like
empty lockets - suffocating in the
silver lining - secrets giggling like
children in my mind, a game of hide
and seek i don't think i want to win -
a lamb frolicks around the body of a
lion and i reap something i never
even sowed in the first place

Things Photographer Should Never Say to ModelsThings Photographer Should Never Say to Models11 months ago in Personal More Like This
'Just be yourself'As a kid I had problems grasping the meaning of "be yourself". Whenever I asked what it meant, the replies were hardly satisfying. Mostly, I was told NOT to be the way I thought of as ok but to be like the kid next door, because he was so well behaved. Or someone famous, someone rich, because they were successful and the more successful you are, the better.'Just be yourself'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But even at a very young age I already noticed the contradiction here: how was I supposed to be myself if I was copying someone else? This seemed off.
In the end it wasn't a human who was able to explain the concept of "be yourself" to me.
It was a video game.
With a blue hedgehog.
The first thing I noticed about the game was how happy he looked. He was clearly doing the one thing he loved to do, the one thing he did best. And he made a dent with it.
I was impressed.
And then I was hooked.
And by the time we had traveled through three games, I was certain that I had understood the whole "be yourself" thing. And I adored him for it.

How to Get a Life.Exactly a year and a half ago today, my mother had turned to me and told me something. She had said, "You will never manage in the real world. You will never be independent. Stop trying, you just don't have it in you."How to Get a Life.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today, I am happy to say, I have proved her wrong. Because I did exactly what I was supposed to do. I went out and got a life, and the kind of life I am proud of.
Over the last year, I have found my soulmate, completed my Masters, gone to Sweden and South Africa, got a job as a teaching assistant in a special needs school whilst I figure out my PhD and, as of the 8th of March, will be moving to my own very nice apartment with K.
Remember this. If I can do it, ANYONE can do it. I am not special, I am one of the 99 percent, and if I have the strength to fight, it is because you were all by my side every step of the way. Thank you...thank you for being there for me. Thank you for helping me change my world for the better.
I am back for good now, and I am going to try and ge
It's possible to de-convert religious peopleA few years ago a random person messaged me on a social network. She was visiting Vancouver and had wanted someone to show her around. I decided to invite her for a hike to Garibaldi Lake.It's possible to de-convert religious people3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Spending almost a whole day with a new person from another part of the world, there are many interesting things to discuss. We talked about this and that, and eventually got to religion. She was raised a Catholic, myself - an atheist.
I made the standard argument and she brought forward the standard counter-arguments. However, she was willing to grant me certain things and she was willing to think about it. After she left we still continued to exchange messages and ideas over the Internet. She would asks me a certain question, and I would send a link to reading material, such as on cognitive biases. We became friends. Around a year and a half later she said that even though she wanted to believe in god, she no longer could due to the weight of the evidence and all the information that she had c

All seems strange yet all is true...Take my hand and say I do too..
This beautiful poem was not written by me, but by the one who holds my heart. Beautiful, marvellous, wonderful Knight in shining armour, who came knocking at my door one fine morning (literally!) when I least expected it (needless to say, I looked terrible the first time he met me and he STILL liked me. If that isn't love, I don't know what is!)
K, you are an angel. A perfect angel and a perfect man in my eyes.
This poem is his way of saying hi. So say hi back everyone!!
