    General Psychology
    I was walking outside when I wanted to eat a Big Mac at the McDonald's.

While this improves, in that at times I no...

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    These excerpts make us look so needy! lol. But, even though I rarely express it in real life, this description is accurate. Maybe it is unhealthy, and maybe just a manifistation on my bad childhood... probably both, but this is a big part of who I am. I've never been in a real relationship...

  7. "Pangs"

    The soul is in near-constant hunger Often emaciated Only temporarily satiated The psyche is in perpetual chaos A brittle bare bones feather At the mercy of the weather The spirit is an unruly appetite A thirst to be relieved Immersed in its sleeve The beating heart longs for its fuel A...

  10. Where is my Mind?: Consumerism

    Consumerism is a goddamn state of mind. I'm not saying that society and the corporations and the advertising industry have no role to play in it, because they do. A long time ago, someone discovered that human beings are gullible suckers who are more willing to hold on to something or grasp...
