What’s in a name?

Abnormal – Not normal, average, typical, or usual; deviating from a standard: abnormal powers of concentration; an abnormal amount of snow; abnormal behavior.

Psychotic: Characterized or afflicted with psychosis

Psychosis: a mental disorder characterized by symptoms, such as delusions or hallucinations, that indicate impaired contact with reality.

-or-

any severe form of mental disorder, as schizophrenia or paranoia

So, when I was telling people about my plans to make a blog, one question repeatedly came up: Why abnormally psychotic? How did you come up with that name? What does it “mean” to you? And so I decided to gather my thoughts and write about it on here.

As most cool things, it came out of my head while bored in class. I was sitting in my abnormal psychology class, doodling on my folder, just messing around. I had the words “Abnormal Psychology” on it. At some point during the class, I realized that Abnormal Psychology” was really close to “abnormally psychotic”, which amused me to no end, since we were studying psychotic people in class that day.

It just kinda bounced around in my head until I decided to make this blog. And so it felt like it just…fit somehow. ^_^

Plus, I have self-diagnosed myself with OCD and ADD. (will explain in a later post) I know these don’t make me “psychotic” or whatever, but sometimes I like to pretend. It’s just fun to say. “Yeah, I’m abnormally psychotic”

Also, little note: From here on out, I plan to have 2 small weekly features: WTF Wednesday and FTW Friday. WTF Wednesday will consist of me posting some stuff during the week that made me go “WTF?!?!”, (What the fuck?!?!?!?!) like the name suggests. FTW Fridays are for me posting things I found that week that I think are awesome (seeing as how ftw = for the win). Hopefully I can keep this up…we’ll see….

WTF Wednesday

Welcome to the first WTF Wednesday!

This is the  first of a (hopefully) weekly feature where I post completely WTF things I’ve come across in the past week.

First up, this crazy old ad!

Silly Racist Ad
Wow. The ad is so big that, luckily, my layout will only show the first column, which is what I wanted to point out. Too lazy for resizing. Yoinked from vintage_ads .

Next, anti-drug WTF…

HERE

“His family and the British government had asked Chinese leaders for clemency. His supporters argued that Shaikh was mentally ill, and that Chinese officials did not take his mental condition into account when trying him. Shaikh’s advocates say he suffered from a bipolar disorder and that he was tricked into carrying heroin into China with promises of a career as a pop singer.”

tl,dr: Mentally “ill” person executed for smuggling drugs into China, was convinced he’d be a pop star if he did so, British try to get him clemency, point out mental illness, guy gets executed anyways **sigh** Fuck people even getting arrested for shit like that, nevermind MURDERED.

I-have-no-idea-what-this-is WTF

Not Safe For School/Work/Public/Life

A friend of mine sent me this link with the comment “CANNOT UNSEE!!!!” Why I then thought it would be a good idea to click on the link, I will never know, and forever regret. CANNOT UNSEE

Religious WTF: Christian Side Hug

Embedded below is the “Christian Side Hug”….I can’t explain, just watch…

Gimme that Christian side hug! (WHAT!) That Christian side hug!
…Seriously tho? Wtf? Front hugs cause impure thoughts? I guess I’ve had impure thoughts about pretty much all of my friends, because I “front hug” almost all my friends…
Also, FAIL on bringing politics into it. Since when does being a Christian mean belonging to a certain party? Or even belonging to a party at all. FAIL.
Also, it fails for being lame. FAIL.

And with that, I end the first WTF-Wednesday. ^_^

Here’s the story…

So, I was originally going to have my first post be about something else, but my little sister relayed to me a hilarious story that I couldn’t help but share.

DISCLAIMER: I wasn’t actually present when this event took place. I was away at school. This is the story as I understand it from being told by my sister

So, one night, a friend of my sisters’ stayed over. As is likely to happen during sleepovers with friends, they stayed up late that night. At one point, one of my sisters (I’ll call her L, from here on out) said to my sister and their friend (E and K, respectively) that she wanted to take a walk, and asked if they wanted to come with her. The time was 3 AM, but it’s a safe area of a safe town with very little crime, so they didn’t think it’d be a big deal. L was over 18, and E and K were teenagers. Obviously not helpless little children.

Then, some silly stuff went down. My comments are in the (parenthesis).

As they were walking down the road, a cop car pulls up next to them. Asks them what they’re doing out so late. (Am I being detained officer?) They reply taking a walk. He told them they shouldn’t be out, and there were lots of creepers about. (Okay, creepy much? I’d run away screaming, thinking he was a creeper…CREEPER!!!!) He forced my sisters to call our mom (REFUSE!!! REFUSE!!!), and insisted on driving them home.

Because taking a walk in the early morning is somehow against the law?  Or even of dubious legality?

This annoys the hell out of me. Really now, he had nothing better to do than bother my sisters? It might be a pretty safe town, but there are sometimes some minor crimes going on in the less safe areas. Couldn’t he go investigate those instead of bothering my little sisters?  I mean, it’s not like there were kids walking down the street. It was fairly obvious that they were old enough to be trusted to go on a walk, especially in a safe area of a safe town. And then the insisting on driving them home bit…honestly? Even the one who was over 18, and so therefore, legally an adult? Seriously? Fuck that shit…

If I had a say in the matter, I’d remove my funding from that police station. Oh, wait, I don’t have a say, money gets taken from my paychecks forcibly and is given without my consent to them…

But yeah. I’d give almost anything to see my sisters scream “Creeper!!!!!!!!!!!” at him and run away…**giggle**

Hello world!

Hi!

I know I have an about me page, but starting my blog without an introduction just doesn’t seem right somehow.

You can call me Momo. I’m a 21-year-old female college student. I’m a psychology major, but I LOVE computers. I can’t program worth a damn, but I’ve built multiple desktops and have replaced pretty much all the important parts on my laptop, from the mobo to the wireless card (and all sorts of assorted things in between). I’ve also made multiple websites, and have done sorts of assorted random things on/to my computers. I have very little sympathy for people who get their computers infested with all sorts of viruses/spyware/etc. Would you drive a car without knowing how to take care of it? Then why use a computer without teaching yourself how to do what’s necessary to make sure it runs? But I digress…

I also like video games. My favorites at the moment are games involving Yoshi or Zelda…yeah, I’m a bit of a Nintendo fangirl… I also like the Final Fantasy games, my favorite being 9.  Puzzle games like Portal and World of Goo also are fantastic. I’ll really play almost anything when I’m bored enough/in the right company. FPS’s are my least favorite, but they too have their time and place.

I also read comics. I’m trying to catch up with Batman, although I’m convinced I have ADD, so it’s kinda hard to sit down and read them sometimes. I wish the OCD I had would counteract that, but it’s too busy making me do crazy shit, like taking a certain amount of steps in each square on the sidewalk and not stepping on cracks.

Yeah, I’m a little crazy. Like the blog title says: Abnormally Psychotic. :-p

I plan on writing about..well, pretty much anything and everything. Some of it’ll be about stuff from my everyday life, some of it will be about current events stuff I find, and some of it might just be me ranting about stuff that angers/upsets me, or I’ll explain my position on something.  I’ll try to update on average once a week. I created this blog so that I can force myself to write more. So, we’ll see how well this goes…

Any other questions, feel free to leave a comment. I like to share, and I’m usually quite friendly, I promise!!
