The Younger Dryas Impact lead to a rapid climate increase caused by, what scientists and historian claim, was a comet from the Milky Way. This comet entered Earth's atmosphere 12,800 years ago during an ice age. The heat the comet brought by burning up while soaring through the sky lead to the evaporation of water and melting of ice. This caused heavy rainfall for many days. Sea levels rose by 28 meters. Lots of land was covered by the ocean. As expected, this killed off mammals' food supplies.
The Lost City of Atlantis has been thought of as mythology for centuries. Why do we, as a whole reject the one thing that Plato wrote about in the Critias and Timaeus, both his dialogues, but accept all other points that he has made? He is viewed by historians as a credible source for information, yet the rejection of his account and recollection of how Atlantis was described to him is not backed up. There is no reason not to believe his tale, except for the fact that Atlantis has not been found—or has it? Could it be located in Mauritania, Africa? For many "pseudoscientists," it is believed that the Lost City of Atlantis has been hidden in plain sight all along, as being the Richat Structure or Eye of the Sahara. Even the recent movie Aquaman hints to the Richat Structure as possibly being the hiding place of Atlantis. Pseudo is the prefix meaning false or of conspiracy. Is this account really myth, though?
For years, I was just like any other middle schooler/high schooler. I had friends and a good base of support. That changed, though, sophomore year and my friends became my bullies. To this day, I have no clue as to why my whole friend group (as well as complete strangers) turned on me. They won't even give me or authorities involved in the matter a reasoning for their attacks on me and emotional abuse. This bullying continued until senior year, when I decided to completely isolate myself from everyone. I figured if I'm not close to anybody that nobody had the opportunity to hurt me. While that was true, it also gave me the opportunity to hurt myself without being aware of the fact that I was doing so.
In the winter months of my freshman year, I was diagnosed with depression. I had started to self harm and I always had this paranoia that nobody actually liked me and they were all talking behind my back about me. I still struggle with these obstacles in my daily life to this day. I am now a senior in high school, and the symptoms have gotten so much worse.

I am going to start with an introduction of the past me, the me that I've been on a year long journey to repair. I am Alexis Runyon. I've gone by many names: FatboyJefferson on Wattpad, GutterGurl on Soundcloud, and Yoshii Dey on Instagram. I kept trying to hide myself and my identity while also making my talents prominent. That isn't a way to live. I've learned you either embrace it or stay hidden. I have depression, anxiety, stage fright, little confidence in myself, and so many more flaws. I've been through the ringer, but the vow I made myself forced me to become who I am today; and I absolutely love myself.
