Hello there! I'm Natasha, but you can call me Ash. I'm 19. I live in a quiet, seaside town in Northern Ireland. My hobbies include cosplaying, reading, eating, gathering dust from not moving or leaving the house for extended periods of time, and holding an umbrella over my head on sunny days. I'm also a little bit obsessed with Halloween. In case it isn't immediately obvious from my whole demeanour, I'm a bit of a nerd.
Any questions thus far? :)
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
I always thought that everybody thought this anyway. Just to different degrees though.
These are called intrusive thoughts and they’re pretty common.
I used to panic so much over this sort of stuff. Call the thoughts “evil” and try to banish them from my mind by repeating that word. I thought it was a schizophrenia thing but it turned out to be normal!
