sack man

Hey just a reminder that just because trump is a walking evil pumpkin you have no right to bully a 10 year old kid. Barron Trump is not to blame for being born to that evil empty ball sack of a man. If you see anyone coming for his kid online call them out. There’s enough to criticize about the orange baboon let’s not degrade ourselves to child bullying.

I’m more than happy to make edits and additions to share the proper/most information possible!

~ Boogeyman AU ~

“My classmates said they thought they saw a boogeyman and got seriously afraid. After those stories went around, everyone couldn’t sleep. I asked mom what a boogeyman is and she replied that they are nothing to be scared of, they are like imaginary friends.

Mom was right. You are my friend, and I am not even afraid of you. At all!”

Okay, so I just researched that Brazilians have this one called Homem do saco or The sack/bag man. That carries naughty children away?! Ouo ( Brazilians can correct and educate me more of this please. xD )

If we wish to know about a man, we ask ‘what is his story–his real, inmost story?’–for each of us is a biography, a story. Each of us is a singular narrative, which is constructed, continually, unconsciously, by, through, and in us–through our perceptions, our feelings, our thoughts, our actions; and, not least, our discourse, our spoken narrations. Biologically, physiologically, we are not so different from each other; historically, as narratives–we are each of us unique

The Not-Santa Bag Man of the Hypogean Gaol

I tried to make it look like Santa but I failed. I was trying to parody an Arthur Rackham illustration and it didn’t work out. It still looks nice at least. These are from Bloodborne. They nab you and take you to Hypogean Gaol. I’d like to think they’re Yahar'gul’s version of the church servants.
I went back to my old style. Actually, it’s only been a year since I stopped drawing like this. I’d like to say I’ve improved a bit(*cough* texture abuse). So uh, Happy Holidays from the creepy Sack Man of Yahar'gul.

So I get asked a lot about wanting to get into psychology/neuroscience and what books I would recommend, so I’ve made a list for you all to look through! I’ve separated into leisure reading and academic texts as reading Oliver Sacks would be much easier to read on the train for light reading, than a full blown anatomical textbook!

Books – Leisure

These are books worth reading that are not purely academic. A lot of these are your bog standard Oliver Sacks books but I cannot recommend his works enough!

Oliver Sacks – The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

This is the first book that’s always suggested to anyone going into Psychology and for good reason. It covers the weird and wonderful feats of the human brain, and how damage affects it. Full of case studies, notes and facts all wrapped up in a little bundle!

Nathan Filer - The Shock of the Fall

This is probably my favourite book. It’s fiction, but based on a very real disorder. Written by Nathan Filer who was once a nurse on a ward, he looks at psychosis and writes it in such a beautiful and accurate way that you actually almost feel as if you understand what psychosis is really like. For those who have actually suffered from psychotic breaks, this really illustrates it in such an accurate and yet simple way, it really is the best book I’ve ever read. It touches on death, mental health, loss, love, and everything in between. I won’t say much more because it would be considered as a spoiler but it really is a great insight into one of the most misunderstood psychotic disorders out there, and working on a ward myself, it really is as well written as it could be.

Sam Kean - The Tale of the Duelling Neurosurgeons

So this book I haven’t finished, I’ve only read the first chapter and have been too busy to continue reading it but from what I’ve read, this is a valuable resource for anyone going into neurology/neuroscience/psychiatry. It goes through the history of how we came to understand the human brain as it is now, and is written in a fluid and fun manner, so you’re not as bored as you would be reading an academic text book. It almost dramatizes the historical events that happened which makes it a fantastic read. It looks at key figures in the history of neuroscience, key events, neuroplasticity, delusions and much more. It’s fantastically written from what I can tell so far and has a lot of great info for anyone wanting to get into the fields of psychology/neuroscience.

Bruce Hood – The Domesticated Brain

This one’s an easy read and a very good one. When I first started my undergraduate degree I hadn’t really don’t a lot of preparation – in all honesty I didn’t even plan on doing psychology, so I hadn’t done ANY reading or prep prior to my course – So I found this book in a Waterstones before I got my train back to London. It’s not as easy to read as Sam Kean but easier than Oliver Sacks, so it’s something good to pick up between assignments. Its main focus is on how we are social animals and how evolution has changed the way we behave as well as the biology, so not quite as well rounded in all areas of psychology but a must read if you’re particularly interested in our evolutionary biology and social psychology.

Academic Texts

Purves et al. – Neuroscience

My Fundamental Neuroscience Module was pretty much based on this text, it’s got EVERYTHING you need to know about the mechanisms of the human brain on every level, molecular upwards. It’s comprehensive and pretty much has been my saviour throughout this degree.

Crossman – Neuroanatomy: An Illustrated Colour Text

I cannot praise this book enough. It has EVERY anatomical detail down in an easy to read, easy to study from, easy to do anything with form. It’s one of the few books I’m actually buying to keep at the end of this year just because it’s the perfect book to reference for your neuroanatomical needs. Without this, I would’ve seriously struggled with learning about optic nerves, cranial nerves, cranial nuclei, the skull, everything. It’s a saviour and a necessity if you plan on doing any kind of psychology. I promise you wont regret this one. Plus, it’s not too expensive either.

Diamond – The Human Brain Colouring Book

This is just fantastic. It’s a great resource for stress relief AND learning. It’s self-explanatory really, an excellent resource to have at home for when you can’t be arsed with assignments or doing anything and fancy a bit of colouring while learning about things! Plus it’s a great aid if you’re a visual learner.

Carlson, Martin, Buskist – Psychology

This was basically my hero for my entire undergrad. It was the recommended text for the course and the only one I actually bought, 100% worth it. It covers everything in a really easy to understand way, with fantastic diagrams and images. It doesn’t have too much detail but it’s not really necessary since you really only need the basics to understand a theory or concept. There’s not a lot of difference between the editions, I currently have the 4th edition and it’s still relevant and since the new edition has been published the one I paid for has dropped to only 1/4t of what I paid for it. So definitely worth getting if you’re going into undergrad psychology. For higher degrees I’d recommend this if you’re coming onto a psychology course and are not from that background. If you’re going into neuroscience or something more biological then this might not be the best investment, I’d recommend the Purves textbook instead.

Nolte – The Human Brain in Photographs and Diagrams

Not so much a wordy textbook but a necessary resource if you’re doing neuroscience. This will be your second bible (after the Crossman text) throughout your learning journey. It’s FANTASTIC. The human brain looks VERY different to what it does in illustrated diagrams, trust me, and this will be your hero especially if you don’t have access to real brain dissection labs. It’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to be able to label a photograph of the human brain when all you’ve been looking at is illustrations or rendered models, the actual human brain is really… well, not very distinctive. If I didn’t have dissection class, finding the blood vessels would have been almost impossible, as well as the internal structures, they’re VERY subtle so this book will really help you in the anatomical aspects of the course.

I hope this has been somewhat useful in helping people prepare for a psychology/neuroscience degree and if you have any questions I’m only an ask away! ♥

Myths & Legends: El hombre del saco

El hombre del saco, or Sack Man, is a boogeyman-like figure that collects disobedient children in a large sack and devours them. He is typically described as being skinny and incredibly hideous. The legend of el hombre del saco hails from Spain though similar legends do exist worldwide. In Brazil he is commonly known as o homem do saco. In this version of the legend, he does not eat the children but sells them. Needless to say, children worldwide are urged to be on their best behavior lest the Sack Man get them!
