me The Musings of Somebody, Somewhere

I'm Adam, 22 and from the winter wonderland known as Canada :)

I write a lot in order to try and get thoughts that I think are interesting out in a coherent format. I like to explore and see what ideas and new perspectives I can get from those around me as well as from my own mind. The end product is usually a novel long text post and uh... it kinda happens a lot. Some of my posts are meant to be thought-provoking, some are just me venting, and some are just plain retarded. I try to make everything at least a bit interesting though ;)

Other than that, I adore music from power metal to indie to folk and all the things in between. It's what has kept me afloat for so long now. I do the odd reblog for DW, Fringe, Game of Thrones, and a bunch of other shows and movies too.

I also post occasionally about my experiences with depression and how it affects my life. So if you're like me in that regard and are looking for someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to shoot me a line. I'm always willing to lend an ear for anyone that needs it.

So I finally came across an actual name for this amazing feel that I get from time to time in my head. I’m surprised because I always thought it was something everyone had, but apparently it’s not that common. I don’t really know how to describe it other than that it feels like this really soft tingling in the front of your head that’s triggered by the weirdest things. One of the things that triggers it for me when I go to get a haircut and when the stylist cuts the hair right behind my ear. My head just lights up and it feels sssoooo good (I sound like a drug addict right? :P). I also get it when I’m watching someone do very methodical and meticulous work, when people are whispering and a bunch of other odd situations.

I’ve had it since I was a kid and I’ve never been able to explain it. Like I said, I thought everyone had it, but I guess that’s not true. So I really am curious about this one. Has anyone ever experienced something similar?

  4. catluvr96 answered: I have! I had no idea there was a name for it…a trigger in the past was usually music or something…I had them since I was born.
  5. elfinselkie answered: I’ve never experienced such a thing, nor did I know such a characteristic existed before now. That’s cool!

    I wondered what it was for years, and imagine my delight when I discovered thousands of ASMR videos on YouTube. It’s...
