elledanish asked: i've learned a lot from here too than my psyc textbooks. i'm a psyc major as well. i'm glad you wrote up a thank you/good bye post. i wish you the best in your future.
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much.
Exactly one year ago on this day, I signed up for a Tumblr account and decided on the name Monster Psychology. I was on a vacation with my family when I did & I found myself much more involved in what I was doing online than what was going on around me. Everyone who has followed this blog since then has been so supportive and sweet. I’ve learned more from this silly blog than I have from any Psych. book i’ve ever read, and that has a lot to do with the super cool people that i’ve spoken to through Tumblr. This being said, I am deleting this account and starting from scratch. I won’t give the new URL here, because I don’t want what I intend to leave as a Thank You post to become a promotion. This account has garnered way more followers than I’d ever thought would care about some amateur’s psych. writings, so thank all of you for at least giving this a chance. I’m grateful for all of you, my decision to start new has more to do with myself and the direction I want to take in my life with psychology & writing than it does with anything else.
Goodbye, & a special thanks to those of you who tried to communicate with me further than the lengths of this blog. As silly as this sounds, and as much as KPBS advises against online friends, I really grew to care about some of you.
me rapping look at me now<3
((((plz watch this took me a lot of time to perfect thank u))))
This is what a perfect human being looks like

Yeah, I love that quote :)
In my opinion, that part of the quote is relating to the way sometimes, it makes us feel a little better just knowing that someone else is going through the same thing we are. “… so that they can feel this way, too.” The author writes it a little negatively, but if you’ve read his children’s books or anything else he’s written, you’d know it’s intended.
How do people develop eating disorders?
Do they just wake up one day and are like, “I don’t want to eat anymore?”
I think it’s more like waking up one day feeling like “I really need some attention”
The ignorance on this website will never cease to blow my mind.
Yeah, I don’t think whoever made the actual Tumblr post did a very good job of placing the right GIFS next to each other… It’s still an awesome thing, though:)
Basically what is on the left is something you’d be seeing on TV or in real life, right in front of you. What is on the right is more or less what your brain reproduces while you’re remembering said image.
UC Berkeley scientists have developed a system to capture visual activity in human brains and reconstruct it as digital video clips. Eventually, this process will allow you to record and reconstruct your own dreams on a computer screen.
asdfhjkl how is this even…
French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne, in the 19th century, occupied himself with applying small electric shocks to the faces of his patients, in order to understand the muscular movements behind expression (and to at the same time discover something of the ‘soul’). The genuine ‘Duchenne smile’ is named after him, since it was he who discovered that a true smile involves the involuntary movement of the muscles around the eyes.
Still, um … ouch.
