    3 Agoraphobia Coping Mechanisms

    3 Agoraphobia Coping Mechanisms

    Since I was very young, I was diagnosed with pretty bad agoraphobia. It led to a number of things: dermatillomania, hypochondria and various social anxiety problems and panic disorders. During university, I collapsed a number of times in various locations including the library and the lunchroom because of my panic attacks. My agoraphobia no doubt has caused my life to be completely isolated from most every other meaningful human connection. Am I worried about that? No. What am I worried about? I am worried that I one day, it will become impossible for me to shut myself away and so, I require a coping mechanism. Even though it is difficult, I am pretty sure it is not impossible.

    A Filmmaker's Guide to: "Strangers on a Train" (1951)

    A Filmmaker's Guide to: "Strangers on a Train" (1951)

    In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we are going to explore some of the films that have changed our outlook of the possibilities in cinema in some way, shape or form. These can include, but are not limited to: revolutionary cinematography, narratives that challenge the social structure and the common view, trademark styles of auter cinema, brilliant adaptations of novels and other works, films of philosophical value and films that touch our hearts and souls with their incredible underlying messages and morals. Within each of the films in this chapter there is a certain something that makes them special and a certain something that makes them linger long after we have watched them for the first time. Lasting impressions are difficult to create, but I think that the films we will briefly touch on in this chapter are some of the films we will never ever forget.

    10 Great Non-Fiction Novels I Have Read in 2020

    10 Great Non-Fiction Novels I Have Read in 2020

    I have read a great set of non-fiction novels during 2020 and in this article, I want to share some of those with you. The influence for writing this article came from seeing others posting about great non-fiction books they had read and taking inspiration from other recommendations on my Goodreads and social networking accounts. Non-fiction has been on the rise for me lately since fiction and especially fantasy fiction have moved unfortunately further and further away from my to-be-read lists. It was something I could appreciate far more when I was a teenager. Since I became twenty-one, I’ve wanted to read more and more non-fiction and not just true crime, there’s historical non-fiction, there’s biography and autobiography, there’s philosophical non-fiction and essays etc. I’ve been reading a lot of non-fiction lately and this year has been my most prominent year for the genre. Hopefully, you too can get some recommendations from this list and if you’ve read any of them (or all of them) then that’s even better. I would love to see your lists of recommendations as well!
