Monday, November 1st.


Tomorrow we start the real work. We go to special education schools and work with the kids there. ACTUAL work. Not just tests and interviews but therapy sessions. We don't even know HOW to apply the incredibly complicated therapies =/

Frankly, this is scaring the shit out of me. I know, I know. I'm not supposed to say that. I'm just afraid I
a) Won't be able to help them or
b) Might (God forbid) hurt them even worse.

I really, really hope I get the hang of it soon. Because this isn't about passing and failing your semester. This is about some child's entire life and the effect you'll leave on it. Or I'll leave on it. I don't know how to explain exactly what I need to say and I know I sound stupid.

Just pray for the best. Okay? Thanks.

Sometimes, I Love Psychology.

Okay some of these you might not find funny (or maybe none of these) but in light of what we're doing in class these days, they cracked me up. Some of them. The Freud one was best =D

Seeing ourselves as others see us would probably confirm our worst suspicions about them.Franklin P. Adams 

If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a closed room with a mosquito.African Proverb

People used to explore the dimensions of reality by taking LSD to make the world look weird. Now the world is weird and they take Prozac to make it look normal.Bangstrom

A wonderful discovery, psychoanalysis.  Makes quite simple people feel they're complex. S.N. Behrman

A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute. He may not seem such a good friend after telling.Arthur Brisbane

I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said I was being ridiculous - everyone hasn't met me yet.Rodney Dangerfield

We spend the first twelve months of our children's lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up. Phyllis Diller

You talk to God, you're religious. God talks to you, you're psychotic. Doris Egan

Freud: If it’s not one thing, it’s your mother.

21-10-10 - The Birthday That Is Spashul.

AT, you're my girlfriend. No two ways about it, that's what you are for me =D

You're also my sounding board.

And my fellow whiner.

And you're one of my children too.

So, yes. Your birthday is vary spashul as far as I'm concerned. You deserve a cake. A spashul one. Something like this one:

Aw *hug*

You're like, totally, my gal. Yah? *snaps gum*

The board outside our department says 'Clinical Phychology'.

Yes, it really is spelled that way.

You know those long, flowy, straight um... kameez type things with no 'chaak'? I don't know what they're called. They look so pretty on others but I look like I'm wearing a nightgown =(

And I tripped on the stairs because of said nightie. Sigh.

I hate being so tired all the time. It feels like I'm in a hazy stupor. And things are only going to get worse later on.

The up side? I'll be a qualified Clinical Psychologist by the end of two years and will be allowed to practice but under supervision. Wow? You bet.

Just a tiny shout out to one of my favorite footwear and accessory designer *wink*

Happy Birthday, HK!

Oh, Shoot Meh.

I can't believe these words are coming out of my mouth. MINE.

But my previous university was better.

Yeah, those of you who know how much I bitched/moaned/whined/cried about previous uni, you know how huge a statement that is.

I can't even begin to describe the disappointment, anger and disillusionment. Today was a day of many, many negative emotions. Many.

Gender Psychology =D

I love these facts! The tenth point is the absolute best! Haha take a look:

1. Men change their minds two to three times more often than women. Most women take longer to make a decision than men do, but once they make a decision they are more likely to stick to it.

2. Based on the total number of people tested since IQ tests were devised, women have a slightly higher average IQ than men
3. Women are better than men at remembering faces, especially of females.
4. Men are more likely to help than women!
5. Women are more pessimistic when predicting their work results.
6. Most women tend to believe that they are only good at certain tasks, but not capable of being good at everything.
7. Women are more fearful and anxious than men.
8. Women are twice more talkative than men! It has been estimated that on average, men speak 12,500 words and women speak about 25,500 words in a day.
9. Men, on average, think about sex every 7 seconds.
10. The female brain is much more adept at reading subtle facial and verbal emotional expressions.  Some women say that only when men see actual tears do they realize that something is wrong. This is why women have to cry four times more than men do, to signal distress.

12th of October and 2010.

So, mama's started to respond to medication. After 10 horrible, scary days. She's getting better. Thank you all so much for the love and support and texts and calls, it meant a lot to me =)

As far as the new university is concerned, now I'm sure they're trying to kill us. Nobody and I mean nobody has a schedule and work-yourself-to-the-grindstone policy like we do. Sab ki M.S. degree is relatively relaxed and laid back. While we are having breakdowns and facing paranoia and hysteria before every class and guess what? Its only the second week.

We're supposed to get a welcome party this Friday. We were happy. Then I found out that its going to be in our very own classroom, not in any hall, thank you very much. In ko halls ki kami hai? OH, yes mustn't miss out on the other happy news. We have classes before the party. How fun. Take your morning class then go and eat lunch then stare at your seniors trying to amuse you with... Well lets not go there. That's not what I'd call any sort of party. That's what I would call something that MUST be missed. Make your own plans, go somewhere, for Chrissake just give us some money and we'll go out ourselves if that's what you want. I mean, what?! How boring. Har waqt parhai. I ALWAYS get stuck in places like these while my sister has all the fun with a black and white themed welcome party that if nothing else starts in the evening. Did I mention I have mine at 12 noon?

*rolls eyes*

Okay, enough with the bitching I'm sure you guys get sick of me but honestly? This is what I have my blog for, I don't complain anywhere else =P

Oy, F.

Yeah, you. Jis ki ek maheenay baad shadi hai. I miss you like hell and I don't know what I'm going to do after you go. Not that we meet all that much now but still. Its just the comfort of knowing you're there. I can't call and wake you up at night saying I'm bored. I can't text you all day sending hugs and kisses. No more sleepovers?! Haha. You're probably the only person in my family that I think of as one of my absolute best people. I know, I know. Getting ahead of myself and all. But I miss you.

Haha I'm getting nostalgic already. I love you, FM. No, not FMS just FM =P

Update 07-10-10

I felt so out of my league when classes started.

But I think I'm doing pretty well now.

I'd have to be pretty dumb not to because we get quizzed every day so I HAVE to study 5 minutes before every class (2 classes a day - 2 hours each!). Gone are the days when the only studying I had to do was a couple hours before the exam.

Anyway. It does give you a definite advantage.

But yar. S-P-L-I-T-T-I-N-G headache =(

You know, I never really believed any of those over-used, fucked up, over-dramatic cliches. And now, I can't help but think, speak and act all of them.

Its amazing what it does to you, knowing someone that you would give your life for is hurting or ill. In this case, Please pray for my mama.


I'm really not in the mood for a long post gushing about how awesome my first day was because honestly? It wasn't. It wasn't bad exactly, its just that I was exhausted and sick with worry because half of my family is ill. Like really ill. So I couldn't have cared less about today.

The staff was nice. Much, much nicer than my previous university. But I already have two assignments and homework O_o

The seniors were amazing, though. They gave us this really sweet impromptu welcome thing which felt really nice. So, yeah. It was hot and the day was way too long and the cafe is very expensive =(

Anyway. I have this splitting headache. I'll gush later. Ta.

P.S. I laughed myself silly after reading this crap (now this is what's called gushing and I excelled at it). So weird reading that. Haha.

King Moses.
