At the moment my exams have become a big stressor for me and it's made my anxiety/depression slip a little ;a; I specifically didn't want to bother anyone so I tried to deal with it the best I could. But despite all my efforts the one person I thought I could actually turn to left me essentially because I was too problematic for him and he couldn't deal with me so ontop of my already anxious state the depression of a break up is weighing me down too I'm sorry this is so negative ah how are you?

It’s alright la if all the stress is overloading and is about to overflow any moment I want you to step back and take a breath go take a bath or a nature walk or something I am actually studying for biology BAHAHAHAHAHAHAH taking a break arm though

An Illustrated History of Madness

At The Paris Review, Andrew Scull writes about the cultural meaning of madness reflected in our visual depictions of it. From the article:

Modern psychiatry seems determined to rob madness of its meanings, insisting that its depredations can be reduced to biology and nothing but biology. One must doubt it. The social and cultural dimensions of mental disorders, so indispensable a part of the story of madness and civilization over the centuries, are unlikely to melt away, or to prove no more than an epiphenomenal feature of so universal a feature of human existence. Madness indeed has its meanings, elusive and evanescent as our attempts to capture them have been. 

Western culture throughout its long and tangled history provides us with a rich array of images, a remarkable set of windows into both popular and latterly professional beliefs about insanity. The sacred books of the Judeo-Christian tradition are shot through with stories of madness caused by possession by devils or divine displeasure. From Saul, the first king of the Israelites (made mad by Yahweh for failing to carry out to the letter the Lord’s command to slay every man, woman, and child of the Amalekite tribe, and all their animals, too), to the man in the country of the Gaderenes “with an unclean spirit” (maddened, naked, and violent, whose demons Christ casts out and causes to enter a herd of swine, who forthwith rush over a cliff into the sea to drown), here are stories recited for centuries by believers, and often transformed into pictorial form.

Geliebtes Herrchen – geliebter Vierbeiner: Japanische Forscher haben die Schlüsselrolle des Blickkontakts für die beidseitige emotionale Bindung zwischen Mensch und Hund aufgezeigt. Augenkontakt führt bei beiden Partnern demnach zur Bildung des „Kuschelhormons Oxytocin. Zwischen der Ausschüttung dieses sozialen Bindemittels und dem emotionalen Verhalten bildet sich dann eine Art selbstverstärkende Rückkopplungsschleife aus, sagen die Forscher. Beim Umgang mit zahmen Wölfen ist dies interessanterweise nicht der Fall, zeigten die Versuche.. Artikel aus der Rubrik Biologie

I just slept for about 16 hours straight

I have not studied for my biology test on Tuesday

I have not done my homework

I did not attend choir today

And I don’t even care because now I can study and do homework and sing completely focused

Put that in your juice box and suck on it, fatigue!

Jones Brown Legislation New Claims That Lipitor Can Cause Diabetes

Jones Brown Legislation New Claims That Lipitor Can Cause Diabetes

I have an extraordinary honours level in biology and a company training certificate. I was specifically interested to see if Lipitor had any type of recorded effect on the hormone insulin resistance (which could enhance the quantity of the hormone insulin a kind 1 required, or push a smoldering kind 2 pre-diabetic over the edge right into full blown diabetes) or weight gain, which could induce…

Our generation explaining why they failed Biology #DNSLAY

So here we are!! As promised, for reaching 1,000 followers, here’s the first chapter of the book I’ve spent a good five years on. It’s gone through four major changes, countless rewrites, and a very dark period where I hated my main character, but I’m finally at a point where I’m satisfied with the plot, the characters, and the direction the book is going. So without further ado, here’s Afterlife:

Panting heavily as she was rushed into the next part of “finals”, Mina Channing cursed the day she was born into a family with a last name at the beginning of the alphabet. With only two people in front of her, she would barely have time to regain her bearings before being shoved into whatever task the sadists behind these tests had planned for them next. How the hell were geometry and biology supposed to train her for this basic training-like torture?

Bringing oysters back home to Britain

Overfishing, pollution and disease destroyed them, but Andy Woolmer – a former postman with a PhD in marine biology – is determined to put the shellfish back

“If I fall in, press this.” It’s a small button with a red plastic cover and the word “distress” written on it. Andy Woolmer, fisheries scientist, is showing me the safety features of his 17-foot survey boat, Triton. There are fire blankets, a VHF radio and flares. We putter through Swansea marina, past fancy motorboats and sailing yachts, with cloudless blue skies overhead and I find it hard to imagine we’ll need the emergency kit. Then Woolmer points out a wind turbine spinning merrily around. “It wasn’t moving when I drove past earlier,” he says.

We’re heading across Swansea Bay to a spot where 18 months ago Woolmer poured 50,000 oysters on to the seafloor. His plan is to restore a species and a fishery that have both been gone for a century. Now it’s time to see how his oysters are getting on.

Researching pon farr

Another thing that baffles me is the supposed lack of sexual education on Vulcan due to so-called modesty. Okay, the views on sex in the society may be puritanical, but if it’s the matter of life and death?

The Vulcan society is the society of scholars. I don’t think that modesty would preclude them from research, especially when it’s so vital. Being such devotees of control and logic, they had to and have to look for ways to counter the effects of pon farr or at least make it as benign as possible. Hence, pon farr should be very well studied, there should be lots of data on it, and teenagers are bound to receive all comprehensive information in order to be ready and know how to deal with it. It is logical.

Of course, such things are not openly discussed - as we, Humans, also usually won’t discuss our sex lives with just anyone (hopefully). However, I believe it’s possible to talk about this with a doctor, or it would be acceptable to seek advice from parents during a meld.

The boys are asleep, the kitchen is clean, I finished my history paper, I finished my biology paper, and I’m almost finished with my debate! I’m oddly proud of myself for the small accomplishments today!

Ohp and I got a manicure, a pedicure, eyebrows and face waxed. :) AND I bought my luggage! I should probably do some laundry… And pack…
