I have just completed and turned in my assignment for my psychology class. I should be working on my discussion post for my other class. I am at such a loss as to come up with a scenario or a situation that makes sense in my mind. The lecture does not take place until tomorrow. I HATE when the lecture is on Wednesday. I would like all my lectures on Monday - but not on the day that the lecture is due.
There are pre-recorded lectures from another instructor. I don't follow his instructions as well as I do my own. And though I can tell from her post what it is that is expected for the discussion post, I am still at a loss. Writing a post for my blog won't help the situation either. Many emotions have been triggered since I started this psychology class.
I notice the longest entries in my journal display anger or sadness. I'm anti-social at those times but feel the need to vent. When I am happy, I am more social. I would rather inter-act with family members than write about it.
During the lecture one question asked about how we feel about change. Change is good overall I think. I am better with change than I used to be, although it depends on WHAT change. When I stop by a store to pick something up, I generally want to just get in and get out. I have not made it a secret that I don't like shopping. It's especially annoying when I know exactly where a product is located and the merchandise has been rearranged - change has put my product on another shelf in another aisle. That is one example of when I don't do well with change.
Jenna is really horrible at trying to deal with change. When the school discontinues one ritual and starts another, she gets bothered. But then again, she is a dramatic teenage girl. I remember being in her shoes. I'm happy to say that I am a lot better at rolling with the punches.
Last year we had rain. Buckets and buckets of it. This year we have fog. Change. I think I prefer the rain to the fog.
This week we're learning the difference between sympathy, empathy and compassion. She showed us a video that I had seen before. I found humor in the character that wanted to silver-line everything. You can find the link here.
