"Their are two kinds of abuse.
Physical abuse can lead to injury and death and low self-worth and is usually accompanied by mental abuse. Mental abuse by itself can also be just as deadly. When physical abuse is present it can create fear in leaving…"

"I thought the same thing about the "gentle taps"! I couldn't help but think "WTF?" when he said that. I mean, why wouldn't you just ASK someone to move?
As for the leaving and then coming back later,…"
"Thank you Mending.
The confirmation that I'm not crazy for thinking it was/is abuse is really important to me. It's weird for me to always be second guessing my own opinions. We're looking into counseling…"

My appearance changes too often to bother to describe it. I currently attend Western Washington University and am almost finished with my degree in English, with a minor in Women's Studies.
Interests and Hobbies:
crocheting, dancing (ballroom, swing, bellydance, and dirty dance. :D), drinking, reading, writing, hanging out with friends, reading tarot cards (for amusement's sake, I don't believe in them!), hairstyling.
Lolita by Nabokov, House of Leaves by Mark Danielowski, Ovid's Metamorphoses, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer...
The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan are my "comfort" movies. I love musicals: Hairspray, Sweeney Todd (not the movie in this case), Phantom, RENT! I tend to go more for television shows though, for instance I LOVE Buffy episodes "Once More With Feeling!" (the musical one) and Tabula Rasa.
Favorite activity after mormonism?
I'm really enjoying freedom and being able to be myself. Alcohol is one of those benefits, as is that 10% raise. :)
