DarkPhoenix (MTS profile)
I’m a grad student in the counseling program at my university. When I’m not in class, I’m working either as a cashier or a researcher for a psychology study. In my free time, I enjoy writing stories (such as the one I have on this site, When Cliques Collide). I also enjoy reading pretty much anything I can get my hands on.
The cat in the picture is my kitty, Nuka. I adopted him from the animal shelter last year!

“A women’s magazine is basically one article on loving yourself and fifty on how you’re fat, ugly, need a wardrobe makeover, are dating a loser, don’t eat right, and can’t please your man.”—Me
“The reason a person viciously strikes out against you is because they are afraid of you or what you represent, or are resentful of your happiness.”
“I remember when my dad died. I was only six. Got loads of presents from everyone like it was Christmas. I remember wishing a couple of more people would die so I could complete my Lego set. Grandma tried to explain, you know? She said he’d gone away and he wasn’t coming back. So I wanted to know where, like, you know? She said he was very happy and went to the same place as my goldfish. So I thought they’d flushed him down the bog. I thought he was just round the U-bend, you know? I used to stuff food down and magazines and that, for him to read. They took me to a child psychologist in the end… because they found me with my head down the bowl reading him the football results.”—Lister, “Red Dwarf”

Man: [peering in] Did anyone just hear a—?
Dr. House: I shot him! He’s dead!
