ASMR – ‘Autonomous sensory meridian response’ Or In other words: The triggering of a tingling-like sensation spreading from the scalp down the spine as a result of visual or auditory stimuli.

The Psychology of Value – Culture
Carrying on from yesterday’s post, I noted how this concept of value stems from our childhoods. How we internally form an attachment to particular items we deem as ‘ours’ from a young age. Yet when comparing this globally, there are certain cultures where regardless of age, this trend does not appear. For example in aContinue reading “The Psychology of Value – Culture”
The Psychology of Value
What do you think is more valuable, the price of these rings in the picture, or, the relationship symbolised by them? No rush to answer!

How Important Is Your Health?
The answers is yes, if you don’t have a screw loose, but if this is the answer then why do so many of us struggle to keep the gym routine in check, or even have one to begin with? How often should you really go to the gym? It’s a shame to say it butContinue reading “How Important Is Your Health?”
Poem – What’s In A Tattoo?
The needle pierces my body, But I feel no pain. Black Ink drowns my pores, Euphoria begins. I am in paradise, I am transformed. My skin marked before my eyes, An external expression of an inner form. This is the poem I wrote for my first ever podcast published on my blog!Continue reading “Poem – What’s In A Tattoo?”
Why The Winter Blues?
With the sun getting lazier and lazier these November nights, returning to its slumbers faster than I’m sure the majority if us would like, as a result, I hear the miserable moans and groans of grief-stricken commuters. The winter blues have well and truly set in for some and it’s still only autumn! They haveContinue reading “Why The Winter Blues?”
Poem: 5th November 1605
The dank presence of gunpowder fills their lungs. Settling smoke distorts their view. 5th November 1605 – a night like any other. If only this were really true. Traders to country, traitors to crown. The Gunpowder Plot, Dismembered, put down. Destructive paths each had chosen, Treasonous, treacherous. Yet failed to make any explosion.Continue reading “Poem: 5th November 1605”
It’s cold outside, My windows – opaque. Toes – curled up tight. Hands – beginning to shake. Amber embers of fire flicker, I begin to rock. My breath in the air grows thicker, There’s a hole in my sock. The fat black cat returns back, She always let’s in the cold. I boltContinue reading “Poem: Cold”
Why Do We Dress Up Like Kn*bs On Halloween?
If you read my earlier post, the title above may have sprung to mind. It is a weird concept if we remove ourselves from the festivities for just a second, and instead have a momentary out of body experience. Envision yourself looking at your badly sewn together costume, your lop-sided devil horns and staining-for-weeks pastyContinue reading “Why Do We Dress Up Like Kn*bs On Halloween?”
Halloween Didn’t you hear the scream? It’s half past 9 or is it 9.15? I need to wake up from this nightmarish dream. Plump pumpkin’s are carved, Their flesh scooped from their core. Night has fallen upon us, Yet it’s only half past 4. A tar-like black shrouds the moon in mystery. IsContinue reading “Poem: Halloween”
