I recently got a new cork board for my work area to help organise all the goals I want to achieve throughout June. Every month it seems more gets added to the list, but how does one go about setting realistic goals that can be achieved?

It might be hard ...

I recently took on the Sailor Moon Redraw Challenge. I was so excited to pay homage to the series that inspired me to take drawing seriously but most of all, I was curious as to whether or not I had a style. It took many years for me to realise ...

On Writing Therapists 3

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 25, 2020



And so we have arrived to the juicy stuff- Evil Psychologists!

On Writing Therapists 2

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 18, 2020

Having completed the (very quick) foray into the workings of motivations, ideologies and behaviors, the time has come for a look-see of all your amazing comments, from all three articles!

Motivation, Ideology, Action 2

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 16, 2019



Last time we talked about motivation in people, and its relationship to behavior. And I must say you all had great comments I feel deserve to be addressed, so instead of a four-part tour to the world of what makes people tick, I will add a fifth part where I ...

On Clipping Wings

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Oct. 5, 2019



Today, while on a coffee break with my gaggle of Red Cross guys, a friend told me that he had dabbled in writing stories, after a vignette he'd written at school received an award. His mother though was skeptical, and when she went to read it in the exhibit ...
