What is a psychopath?

I think, for the sake of clarity, it is probably to my best interest to indicate the meaning I intend behind the word psychopath in context with my blogs title. 674 more words

17 Things You Need To Know About People Who Like To Be Alone

1. “You fell off the face of the Earth!” is not a thing anybody wants to hear. A suitable alternative would be: “I haven’t heard from you in a while, how are you?” (Just because somebody isn’t interacting with you doesn’t mean they cease to exist.) 599 more words

generationzteacher reblogged this on Chronicles of a Christian Teacher and commented:

Below is a post by blogger Brianna Wiest from her site "Thought Catalog." She outlines 17 things everyone needs to keep in mind about people who like their alone time. This is a very important article to read and digest. This applies to how we may operate, not only as individuals, but as professionals. Each teacher has their own personality and work style. This goes for students as well. Introverted students have a way of thinking and operating that may be completely different from other students. We need to find ways to cultivate this in class. Instead of asking them to continually participate and join group circles, we could give them the opportunity to journal their responses or create an independent project from those responses. This all leads up to the spiritual portion of this article. Brianna Wiest didn't explicitly discuss spiritual implications of people who like to be alone, but I will expound on them. It is important for us to embrace our alone time so that the holy spirit can begin to work on us and minister to us. When He has all of our attention, it is easier for the rhema word to sink into our spirits without distractions coming from every angle. It also becomes easier for us to decipher what is coming from the holy spirit and what is coming from us and those around us, because we are spending quality time with our thoughts. There should be at least one reflection assignment a week going on in our classes. It allows students the space and opportunity to critically think about their actions, review and preview their surroundings, and make better decisions that, hopefully, the holy spirit is a part of.

Yesterday Got Better

And I’m not necessarily talking about the PartSane Femme Hive Party, though it was pretty epic — let’s talk about i: Not epic in terms of ‘I partied a lot!’ Because all of you know me know I sort of lack the party gene, but the show itself was bafflingly fascinating in a GIGANTIC warehouse covered with other queer party posters and art. 1,408 more words

Songs From The Big Chair

Been working on a lot of personal things these past few years….first off getting my head on right, then (FINALLY!) addressing my gender issue.  This included – with the help of my doctor – not only getting my insurance to cover Testosterone, but  finding a way for top surgery to happen as well. 721 more words
