On a personal note, I am slogging my way though conflict resolution… the course can only be described as apPAULling! After an extremely horrid mid terms that I nearly bombed, and lazy assignment, I am gearing up to face a final exam that does not hold much promise. I have given up any chance of an A, or a decent B. A friend of mine (lets call her the ‘lady in the gown’) commented that I should not give up hope yet and that something unexpected may happen. I however, hope her theory stands right for the other things in my life.
Working on a project to measure ‘mental health status’ of the refugee population whom I work with. The plans are still in the drawing board, but that’s the hardest part. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the project is funded by someone!
The script that I have prepared for my teams theater presentation is almost ready. For those of you who can make it, it’s a story about a triangle of love between 3 homosexual girls that leads to encounters in the after life! For those young budding fake psychologists (and real ones, if you are reading this), stop imagining why I would want such a play! However, to find out more, be there at the auditorium of the center for psychology in HELP, KL.
Its experimental session again! the young budding psychologists in college are eagerly carrying out their human experiments/trials with much enthusiasm. Thank fully, I am still given the kind privilege to participate (ya right!). the standards of some of them are… ermm lets just say ‘questionable’. I nearly walked out of one that was showing gross video images of human body mutilations with a to a hard core/rock (violent) music background. The result.. = DISGUSTING. Makes me wonder what ERB (ethics review board) doing any way? Shouldn’t it be their responsibility that no ‘ethic’ are violated? - my thoughts on ERB coming up soon ;) .
Personal life! Ahh.. total wreck! I have made some changes to the outlook of this web page and have attempted to bring my knowledge of psych stuff open and into the public. I am hoping to drive the message that psychology so far has been too restrictive and the more needs to be done to allow people access to knowledge.
