I See a Psychotherapist Once a Week
Psychotherapy. A scary title for those who may have fallen to the hysterical stigma around mental health. Psychotherapy is pretty exciting, and a form of care should have looked into a very long time ago. You see, Psychotherapy is the treatment of mental disorder by psychological rather than medical means. I advise you to learn this sort of therapy if you are suffering from mental health illness(es). Every therapist I have had a session with would hit me with the monotonous, "and how does that make you feel?" Mine says, "That must have made you feel inferior." My favorite is, "Jeez, you don't look good. You okay?" And I proceeded to grab my messy mane (I usually forget a scrunchie) and said, "Why? Is my fur in disarray?" We just laugh, and I appreciate that about him. He diagnosed me with PTSD and anxiety with no rush to medicate me. And truth be told, I don't ever feel like I'm in therapy. We talk about everything and anything, and I look forward to my weekly appointments. I also look forward to completing my journey with him—he has become my confidant, my mentor. He is the first in his field to make me feel so comfortable. When I address him, I address him by his first name, which makes our visits pleasant. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. I also would recommend this type of therapy for no matter the ailment of the mind. It is worth it for some peace.
A Fright-filled Night With Netflix
I love scary movies. There is no sugar coating it. For those who agree with me, we all know there are levels to this. From horror, suspense, thriller, hack and slash, gore, and all of the sub-genres that fall in between. Since I am now home almost all of the time, I have the luxury of Netflix, and there's nothing better than watching scary movies all day (at least until RE2Remake comes out). More times than not, I find a really whack "scary" film, and I become so upset that I search out my ramen cabinet to compensate for disappointment. Now, with that being said, I HAVE found some fright films that I would like to share with you because if I am going, to be honest with myself, my Halloween is every day. 😊
Netflix, Eat, and chill...Alone
I have been going a little crazy bingeing on Netflix, and I must say, I am proud of the collection they have. I've become SUPER excited (where's my cape?) to sit back and binge on adrenaline-rushed fear or... whatever tickles my fancy. The atmosphere is dark, and I slowly try not to crunch too loud on my snacks in fear of waking up the dead. 😂
3 Creepy binge-worthy Films
2018 did not disappoint me with its horror movies. Movies like Winchester, Annihilation, Insidious, and The Quiet Place are not lacking in the jumping department and give quite a thrill for those with strong imaginations. I am most excited about the upcoming films like the Halloween reboot and The Nun ( I have yet to mosey over to my local cinema). As of lately, I have been binging on Netflix to find its hidden gems, and I, of course, landed right into Halloween heaven. I made my way from the genres of horror and thriller and have seen some creepy AF movies that will make any Scary Movie Buff proud to watch.
Quarantine Movies in the dark
We are in one heck of a messed up this situation. A pandemic right into a new year, hundreds of million people affected around the globe. From conspiracies to toilet paper hoarding, Tiger King, and the mess at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, what do we do next? Easy! You start by grabbing your kids' goldfishes because they are delicious, making a Quarantini ( the savages should be asleep by now), a toilet paper fort, and lots of pillows because, Honey, you are going to adult my way!
4 Must-See Horror Themed Animes (Pt. 2)
Hello and welcome to the second part of Hulu's Horror Anime collection! I have been hanging out with Hulu this past couple of weeks and now see my whole life in anime lol seriously; I love myself some good anime (dub or sub). Lately, it seems like I have been itching for an excellent plot with strong leads, insane action, and comedy to give me relief from the remarkable stories. I like to think that we are all like myself in that sense. Rarely I have to watch a relief show to help me get over spooky, creepy, or the horrific; but when I do, it is usually after a movie that scares me to tears. With Asian anime shows, I never feel the need to seek out that sort of relief because "relief" is such a massive part of their important stories. Without the comedy, our next set of Anime would be cringe-worthy enough for a quick visit to your nearest church.
4 Animes You Must Watch
I am the type who bores easily. I tend to get bored with everything from food to music and books. Sometimes I get bored with the screen time too. It is really bad. I am also a bore because I stay within the walls of eerie shows. I do have to admit I lean towards horror most of the time. When I do switch tastes, I go from Netflix to HULU for an anime high sometimes. I also have an account with Crunchy Roll when I want to discover new animes. I have mentioned in previous articles that I have a love for subtitles and anime is where I can enjoy that word-on-word romance.
