”It’s funny how i thought
I was good at hiding my
fellings, but then strangers
started asking me what was
wrong and why I looked so
tired and that’s when I 
realized you didn’t care 
enough to notice”

i stopped telling you about the things in my life when i realised you no longer care


One great thing about my dad is this: He never threatened anyone I ever dated. He always told them the same thing, “If you hurt her, the one to fear is my daughter. Nothing I can do will be half as fucking scary as what she’ll come up with.” He taught them to fear me, not him. That I was the boss of myself, not him, not them. I treasure that.

Reporter:  What made you lose 37 pounds?
Raven Symone: The pressure of society.


In an interview where someone told her that she looked beautiful she said: “I was always beautiful, now I’m just thin.”

She is actually Jesus reincarnated.

I’ve gotten some questions regarding what I’m eating while in college to stay “healthy”, so here are some snacks that I have in my dorm room and mini fridge!

  • Kettle corn may not be the ~healthiest~, but it always satisfies my sweet tooth!
  • I looove Luna Bars! I have like 4 boxes in my room right now lol
  • Pretzels + hummus are one of my favorite snacks, and it’s super filling
  • I crave Capri Suns more than like, anything else, so I keep some in my fridge haha
  • Sugar snap peas and baby carrots are also amazing with hummus, or by themselves!
  • Greek yogurt of course!
  • My mom got me a bunch of single-serving hummus things at Costco, and they’re the perfect size to take to class or keep me from eating an entire tub of it lol
  • Hello Beautiful vegan protein shakes are my absolute favorite on-the-go meals!

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

Built between 1858 and 1881, this asylum is well known for being the largest hand-cut stone masonry building in the entirety of North America. While it was originally built as a safe haven for the mentally ill, it eventually became a nightmare to most of it’s patients. The original hospital was build to accommodate only 250 patients, but it reached it’s peak of 2,400 patients in the 1950’s. Although the building was beautifully built with many windows to allow light, the conditions were terrible, as overcrowding caused living conditions to deplete.

This particular asylum was known well for it’s women’s ward in the early years. In those days, men could have their wives committed for just about anything. Depression, greed, menopause, asthma, inheritance, etc. A man could fall in love with the woman next door or just get tired of his wife and drop her off at the front doors. These women would spend the rest of their lives behind the asylum walls. The only person with permission to check them out were their husbands, who left them behind.

While the medical practices used on mental patients were renowned as “breakthrough operations” in their time can now only be described as cruel. The most popular method of treatment for the worse patients was Lobotomy, which was an operation done on the brain that severed ties to and from the prefrontal cortex. This was meant to cause a calmed state in the patients. However, for the most part, patients that underwent this surgery were thrown into a permanently vegetative state. Many patients were also exposed to shock therapy and other generally torturous experiments and treatments. Additionally, patients that could not be controlled were thrown in cages for days, some even weeks.

The asylum was finally closed in 1994 and is now mostly used to paranormal tours, but is otherwise abandoned. As can be expected from such a wretched place, there are literally hundreds of different paranormal accounts regarding the grounds. People have reported hearing women screaming “help me” and “get me out of here.” A woman on a paranormal tour claimed that she heard a young woman begging “please call my husband.” Additionally, people touring the buildings have reported feeling followed and feeling someone breathing down the back of their neck. The head paranormal investigator in the area reports the spirit of a 9 year old girl that he regards as a very active spirit. Born in the asylum, she lived a short life before succumbing to pneumonia. The investigator states that he’ll ask the young girl, named Lily, to do tasks. These tasks include tapping on walls/windows, turning a flash light on and off, and once tugging on the investigator’s hair. She was able to complete these tasks almost every single time he asked.

Additionally, the rad people over at unexplained-events have an actual list of reasons for admission to the Asylum dating all the way back to the 1800’s. Click here to check that out!

it’s hard being the person that stays strong for everyone else except yourself


Found an undeveloped roll of film from earlier this year. My intentions with the roll were to only shoot and practice multiple exposures. The majority of the shots came out terribly. As I flipped through the prints this one appeared and I was pretty satisfied. Going to have to start shooting more film.

Sorry for the delay!

It’s kinda sad isn’t it?
That someone could hurt you so much that you have to write about it.
