i thought that the video was very sad. The stories on how and why the students committed suicide. It was horrible how the students didn’t show any signs that they were going to commit suicide. I like how some schools took a day to bring the students together. Overall, I liked the video, sad but it was moving.
I would want my toes to go in to know it’s okay and it’s not going to hurt me. Then slowly work my way up. That’s what I’d want to do.
I would have to say I’m addicted to my cell phone. I can’t go anywhere without it and when I do leave it behind I get really stressed out. When I don’t have my phone I feel empty and I wonder how I’m going to go through the day. I also use my cell in moments when i dont like a conversation. If someone is talking about something I don’t care I pull out my phone and look at something else.
I know when to use it and when not to so I don’t get in trouble for it.
The things that stress me out the most would be late assignments, people that bicker at me for unnesscary things, deadlines, and family.
I deal with stress by talking about it with people, mainly my boyfriend, he helps me a lot. Sometimes I talk to the people that are stressing me out. When my stress gets bad I listen to music to drown away everything in life and sit in my room. But when my stress overwhelms me I cry then I talk to people to make me better.
I dont always do the same thing. I do a little assessment to myself, I usually ask myself how much stress is this causing me, how do I feel about it, etc. Then I act on it within reason.
The way I deal with stress works for me.
the only thing I can really say is that the movie was intense. I knew what girls went through but I never really saw it. I don’t remember it that much. But I feel bad for the girls that had to go through what they did.
I would vote for a woman president. I would because I believe females are the stronger sex, we can handle more as far as pain; childbirth! We can handle more when it comes to conflicts, we don’t just attack, girls like to talk about it and try to find a solution but if it came to war then thats the end of it.
I’m guessing the men’s point if view of this would be no because they would feel demasculated, they wouldn’t want a woman above them. Another of their concerns would be, how would they handle the issues on their period? Well I know when I’m on my period and I have to work, I am a completely different person, i don’t put my personal problems into my work life. It’s not professional.
But I would vote for a female president. :)
The stereotype of man; he should be strong, macho, hardworking, shouldn’t cry or have any feminine qualities that shows any sign of weakness, they get mad a lot more often than girls. That’s all I can think of on the top of my head.
The stereotype of a women; she should be nice, kind, want to clean, want to have kids, take care of kids, be soft, cry a lot , no strength, the weaker of the sex. That’s all I can think of.
In our society men shouldn’t have any of the same qualities as women, if the qualities make them weaker. If they do then they are looked at as if they are gay.
I can’t really think of anyone who is like me, I’m completely unique. And nobody is anyone like me. I mean some people have the same traits; my mom is like me in the way of bubbliness, sense of humor and always looking for fun. My sister, Rissa, in the way she is quiet and says her peace when needed. My littlest sister, Allison, in the way I can be loud and obnoxious. My dad in the way of working hard, not taking no as an answer, my drive and ambitious nature. So if you combine all those together you have me.
I would like to be married at some point, after high school or later. I know I want to get married but it has to be the right guy. How will I know if he is? Or if the marriage will work out? You don’t, nobody does and that’s the beauty of it. I don’t know I want children, I’m sure I will later in life but not now, I don’t know if I have that mommy gene, that every other girl has. I don’t think I have it but you never know it could change. I would like to get married like 22 or so. About 4 years from now or tomorrow, it doesn’t matter just as long as it feels right. Everything will happen in time.
When I’m 30, I plan on already being a psychologist for at least 4 years. I plan on being married with kids (maybe) I plan on being in a rural area, Portland Area. I just hope that my life will be in line and everything works out that I want. But nobody can predict where they’re going to be. Life always changes and so will I.
if there was an anti aging pill, I would not take it. I would be afraid of the consequences, yes I won’t age but what things could go wrong? There is no point in stopping or stalling mother nature, it’s going to happen one way or another. Nothing in the world is totally safe, there are always something that could go wrong… So I’ll just let aging take it’s course. With life theres death. With youth there’s aging. When something starts it has to end, that’s life. There is no sense in stalling.
I really don’t think that people are smart when they’re born, they get taught to be smart. They learn things. I don’t really know what else to say other than I dont think you are born with intelligence. Practice makes perfect.
His strongest intelligence would be spatial intelligence. He is very good at video games, he has all of the high scores and if he doesn’t then he tries his hardest to beat everyone.
My strongest intelligence would be music, all through my life I have loved music, all types except country. I hate it so much, anyway. When I hear a song, I feel it, I feel the beats, all of them. I can hear every instrument that’s being played, I can sing and have the right pitch and voice to sound like them. Music is my life.
My weakest intelligence would be interpersonal. I like friends, I like people but I dont go out of my way to talk to people, I’m perfectly happy by myself. It doesn’t bug me.
if I could choose one rule to get rid of in school would be to let cell phones be okay to use. If you give us the power to text in class, let us do it, would we? Its just the thrill of getting caught, being a rebel that people like. I’m so bad, I was texting in class. Focus on more serious issues, kids skipping class, drugs, alchol, not phones. If we wanted to learn then we would do it, kids are going to do it. But if they don’t then they won’t, no matter what anyone does. That’s life.
If I could have the choice to remember everything, I would do it.
I wouldn’t want to remember the bad things that happened but people have to take the bad with the good. People could make arguments better if they remembered everything, but is that a good thing? Then you couldn’t use the excuse that you didn’t remember how many times did you get out of trouble by saying you forgot, not happening again if you get that memory booster.
Remembering everything would be beneficial for the most part, won’t get in trouble if you’re not too lazy to do what was asked. Writing papers would be easier, reading would be no problem too.
I would want to remember everything so I don’t make the same mistake twice.
Where would we be without cell phones?
I imagine staying home talking on the house phone, irritating parents for being on too long. Hanging with friends more to get the social interaction people need, which isn’t bad but if that’s what we did now, we wouldn’t have time for everything else.
Friends are just as distracting as cell phones, nobody is telling you to not have friends. Think about it if we didn’t have texting then we would be constantly on the phone not paying attention to homework, chores, family or anything else. It’s nice to take out phone send a text saying hey then having a conversation when you’re sweeping the floor, going to the bathroom. How embarrassing is it to talk on the phone and go potty? With texting there’s not a problem.
I love my cell phone and its not going to change.
When I study I need to have music on so I can listen to it, i usually drink some iced tea, text and eat some sunflower seeds.
I study in my room, quiet enough for me, no blaring music but soft music. When I need to study vocab words I have my sister, Rissa, help me, she doesn’t get irritated when I don’t know the word she repeated 3 times.
I study at night, that’s when I focus the best, it feels more calm to me but if I have to study during the day then I do.
Listening to music helps slot, I don’t know why.
Eating keeps me focused.
Drinking iced tea, just keeps my hydrated nothing special, I just like to have it.
Texting gives me the feeling of a mini break, so it relieves the stress and my mind off studying for a bit.
I think my study habits are good for me, I learn better.
I wish that schools will let texting happen, just texting people helps me with stressful situations, it’s ridiculous how many phones getting taken away, worry about the drugs not phones.
One mistake that a friend made was that they over spent in their bank account.
First she got a letter saying that she didnt have that money in there.
Then she called the bank to ask them what they’re talking about.
The bank had told her that if the transaction went through then she would have to pay a $20 penalty fee or cancel the transaction for $30 or just pay the difference which is like $12. Personally I’d pay the difference to get it over with.
But if she had checked how much she had left in her account this wouldnt have happened but it’s life and stuff does happen.
So live and learn.
My first vivid memory was two people got into a fight in front of me.
They were fighting because she forgot to return a movie and it’s going to cost them money until they return it. She was taking care of me, cleaning the house, making food and she just got caught up in doing other things, being busy. Next thing I know.
The guy rushes through the door just like he always does, commands her to take off his boots to clean and then polish them. Then he looks in her eyes, his are burning red, screaming at her demanding his meal, since he came home from work.
He sits down on the perfectly clean couch, he doesn’t trip on any toys. He looks over at the coffee table to reach for the remote and notices the movie hasn’t been returned yet.
He looks behind him and asks with an attitude “Did you forget to do anything today, Darling?
“I don’t think so, why, Hun?”
“Well there is something you forgot, just like you forget everything else, you’re a dirty *****, i don’t deserve to get treated like that at all. Im so tired of your ****. start doing stuff in this house or we are gonna have problems!”
“well I’ve been busy all day, taking care of her, making lunch and dinner and cleaning the entire house, I’m sorry.”
“sorry isn’t gonna fix anything.”
” I know, we can return it tomorrow.”
” that won’t fix it either *****!”
” wow, you get mad over stupid ****, get a grip and if it’s a big deal, you go return it.”
It gets silent. He’s trying not to get angry at her last comment. He gets up as fast he can, he runs towards her. Grabs the top of her head and screams, “do what I want, when I want, is that clear?”
He throws her on the floor so she is kneeling and looking at him. She starts to cry, he doesn’t like seeing her cry, it just makes things worse, he gets more angry. BAM!! He strikes her in the face. She tries harder to hold back the tears but they keep bursting out more with every strike of the palm of his hand.
He grabs the video cassette and shows it to her and asks, ” what were you supposed to do today?”
” return the movie.”
She covers her face with her hands, wishing this would just end. Either by him stopping or by him ending her life.
The whole time this was going on I was in the play pen next to the couch, I saw everything. I was about 1 1/2 Years old.
The girl was kneeling in front of me with blood flowing out of her forehead with the guy standing over her, beating her in the head with a rented video cassette she forgot to return.
When he was done with the beating, he sat on the couch as she was lying on the floor, trying to pull together. She gets up, with the most evil look on her face, goes to the sink, gets a washcloth soaks it with water and puts on her new wounds on her. The only thing he says is, ” I would like my food tonight, not tomorrow.”
She gets his plate together, hands it to him and he grabs he by the wrist and says, ” I’m sorry, you just make me so crazy sometimes, I love you. It won’t happen again.”
She tells him what he wants to hear.
I watched this whole incident, I didn’t cry, i just watched. Now I know what happened.
Texting is my addiction, it’s the same for every other teenager. I text all the time, busy or not, it doesnt matter. I like to keep in touch with other people, just send a text and say hey then it goes on from there. I would like to stop and not bother people or have them bother me in a middle of a conversation or doing homework. But old habits die hard. I will try my best to slow down a little bit.
My problem is my dog peeing on the floor. I would fix this by showing the dog the pee and giving the dog the proper discipline. Then I would get floor cleaner put that directly on the pee, wipe it up then I would leave a dry cloth on the spot if it was carpet. Simple and effective.
I was happy about that, we click is such a way he knows what I’m thinking and feeling and vice versa. Every relationship has there ups and downs but I’m happy he is with me. He makes me happy, smile, keeps me on my toes, doesn’t take my crap and he loves me the way I need to be loved. He taught me how to have a social life, family is important, hang with friends, not take peoples crap but I’m sure there will be more to learn from him. This love is most likely be the real/true love, where it’s not perfect, not horrible but just right for the both of us.
Just think about all of the relationships you have had, think about what they taught you, what kind of love it and what you taught them.
I have been in love many times and each time it was different. I felt loved each time, I gave love but everyone is different so each love I received was different.
The first love I had was when I was about 12, he was blonde, a little chubby, treated me the right way he was amazing and so was the relationship. That was one of the best relationships i’ve had, we lasted about 7 months, didn’t even consider fighting until after the 6 month period. We were so much alike but so different at the same time, he taught me things like how to fish, put the bait on most importantly is he taught me how to love someone for who they are. He was funny, charming,temperamental; there was never a dull moment with him and I loved it, I loved his sense of adventure, I loved him. I’m sure we had tough moments but I don’t remember them so for the most part is amazing. I also believe in astrology so I looked up his birthday which is December 14, 1993 so that would make him a Sagittarius. My birthday is October 24, 1993 and that would make a Scorpio. When reading we would get along, the pair, the. Sag and the Scorpio and it said no. But why would it work for me and him? I’m thinking because we clicked, everything was perfect then BAM!! My family and I were moving so we had to break up, I was devastated, we had kept in touch for awhile afterwards but then we finally just stopped talking because of internet problems, the bill to Pay for long-distance and so I miss him, I wish him the best and he is always in thoughts.
The second love I had, probably the first true love I have had. We got together in 8th grade and lasted about 7 or 8 months. He was tall, blackish brown hair, skinny, funny and he was amazing as well. He taught me many things as well, he taught me how to drive a four wheeler, how to have a sense of humor, how to calm down and go with the flow but he also taught me how to love, love adventure and how to see the finer things in life. He lived with his grandparents on a farm, so he had to do the farm work as well. I went with him when he had to feed or anything like that. We spent a lot of time together, he was everything I wanted and apparently someone I needed. I was a good influence on him considering his grades improved. This guy was the guy I had many firsts with, the first to take me to a movie, a date type thing, take me dinner and yeah. I was very happy and never wanted it to end but all good things must come to an end. It ended one winter day, I remember pretty much everything that happened. After the break up, I was torn, I felt sick all the time, the thought of him, the sound of his voice and to see him would make me queazy. Everyday was an emotional roller coaster, I hated every day but my friends were there to help pick up the pieces but years have passed and everything now is great. I’m happy and so is he. I’m glad I had a relationship with him, I experienced the love that was portrayed on movies and television. I think of him but not as much as I used to but I do wish him the best in whatever he wants to do or whoever he wants to pursue.
It was on August 23, 2008 the summer after 8th grade and the summer of freshman year. I remember this day, all the details. It was bright and sunny, I just got a haircut and Miranda was waiting for me to walk down to the fair. I was looking good that day; tight jeans, nice shirt, smelled good and a good haircut. This is the day that changed my life forever, the day where I thought I met the true love of my life. He wasn’t very tall, surfer brown hair, and beautiful blue eyes. The moment I saw him, I knew that everything was gonna be okay and I knew I met Mr. Right. I was right, him and I walked around the fair many times, just talking about anything and everything, we were both having a good time, it was perfect. I knew he was the guy, I wanted to be with forever, the guy I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. He was amazing, he was funny, charming, knew what to say, a little shy and never went too far. We went on many rides together, he took my hand and looked at me in my eyes and I knew we were together. After we went on rides,he had to leave, I gave him a kiss and my stomach dropped, the best first kiss ever. We clicked, it was so amazing. Then after that day the friend he knew in Dover, where I lived gave me his number, I don’t like to call anyone but I did it for him and we talked for 20 mins and we decided that we wanted to be with each other. I was with him for 2 wonderful years. The summer before we broke up,he changed, he changed into someone I didn’t like, someone I no longer needed to be with. It was time for him to move on, I was very sad for about a year. I learned many things from him he taught me how to drive a boat, drive a jet ski, see the brighter things in life, taught me how to love on the spiritual level, love someone unconditionally, and how to trust. I taught him how to love, how to treat someone, how to not let friends be their everything and how to not care so much about what other people think. But all in all, everything was good and I’m happy to experience love like that, hopefully I can get experience that love one more time. I cherished every moment. I think of him but not much, i hope he is happy because I am now. I hope nothing but the best for him. Good luck with life.
On September 12, 2011 is another day I won’t forget. He is who I am with now, Travis. We were talking for about 2 weeks and he didn’t want to date because he didn’t know me well enough, but the point of a relationship to me is to learn someone knew and potentially love that person. So I told him about my life story in 20 simple texts, I had to cover 17 years. He didn’t like what my life had in it, he didn’t like what I went through and he told me I have had one of the worst up bringing’s he had known and he is probably right. Then he told me how he was brought up, the things he went through and it wasn’t bad. But after we knew what we were dealing with, i get a text saying; “you’re sweet, nice, funny and we get along and this is why you are my gf
I think that that was horrible. The babies that weren’t receiving love can’t give love later on in life. I think that is really bad! Every baby should get love, no matter what. If they don’t then it causes psychological problems later on in life, can’t give love, they don’t know how to get close to anyone or anything like that. To not experience would be one of the worst things that could happy. I don’t know where I would be without my parents unconditional love. Everyone needs love, it’s very important.
I don’t think people can be hypnotized, I just think it’s a sham. Being hypnotized is being totally focused on something, yes you can be totally focused on something but you don’t have to be hypnotized in order to be focused. It’s hard to say if it’s real or fake but I don’t believe in it simply because I think it’s a way to get attention. I haven’t seen anyone get hypnotized and I don’t want to either.
I have had many weird dreams in my life but there is one I will always remember.
When I was about 9, it was around the time my parents were going through a seperation. I was staying the night at my father’s place that night. I was walking through the forest, having a good time, just enjoying everything. Then I all of a sudden fall into a hole, it was dark, deep and damp. I was frightened. I don’t remember falling or having the feeling of falling but I wasn’t at the bottom, i was near the middle of the hole. Then I look up there was this bright white light with a hand coming to save me. Who was that? I was thinking.
I woke up and i remembered this dream for a very long time. All I can think of is god giving me a sign that he was there for me in my time of need. I felt fulfilled from that day, I also think that was the day/night that I accepted Jesus into my life.
So I met with an Army recruiter the other day and he was explaining the different options; that are obtainable and one of the things he said was you could go into the FBI and the government will pay for it.
I haven’t decided for the Air Force or the Army but as of right now they are looking really good. I never thought that I could go into the FBI but now I’m really thinking that is what I want to do. Go into the FBI and still become a psychologist.
I have 3 options that I’m looking heavily in but they all involve me into going into the military and going to college. That’s what I want to do.
I would have to say yes and no. I don’t think anyone can be totally against animal testing and I don’t think someone can be totally for it either. There are shades of gray, it’s not all black and white.
I say yes because if you think about it where would human society be without the medications, who did the scientists first test them on; animals, animals that are most like humans. We need someone or something to test our theories on. Should be an animal or a willing human subject. I’m sure that not many humans are willing to get tested on without being paid.
I say no because we have no idea what the out come will be when we test the animals, they could have an unfavorable reaction or they would die. I wouldnt like the thought of killing an animal because I want my favorite shade of lipstick.
Everything has it’s ups and downs. But I can’t really decide if I’m for or against animal testing. Yes on some cases and no on other cases.
if psychologists were to study my family,they would most likely find that we do a lot of group activities, we talk a lot, and we fight a lot.
Every chance we get, we all do something together. We usually play rock band together, very loud but very fun.
Every morning or afternoon my parents sit down and talk. Then we come in and say what we wanted to, usually it ends up in discussions about right and wrong.
I have 2 sisters and I have a friend living with me so of course we all fight. I think fighting is normal, like verbal but not physical fighting, that’s way too far.
There is more that they would observe but at this point I can’t figure it out.
I am the oldest child and I have a younger sibling, Allison; Allison is the youngest, I have another little sister, she is 16.
From the moment my parents split, I had to watch over my sisters. My dad drilled into my sisters head that when he is gone, I am in charge, when I’m not there Clarissa is in charge and when Clarissa isn’t there Allison is in charge. The fact that Allison wasn’t in charge of anyone bothered her a lot.
Allison and I, had always gotten into fights, physical fights. Where the whole house would be torn apart, everything smashed, Allison hurt and crying and I always feel horrible after wards. Every time we fight it is bad but it is not that often, every two years or so.
The last time we fought was about 6 months ago, she wasn’t listening to me when I told her to pick up something that was her responsibility. Allison had a friend over so she kept telling me no, i thought she was doing that to be spiteful and come to find out I was right.
One tihing led to another, Allison was on the floor pulling my hair and I looked at her and said, “wow, what are you doing, I can’t feel anything.” Allison got mad and started to pull harder so I slammed her head against the floor. We both got up. And she proceeded to tell me, I was stupid, ugly and anything she could think of. My temper sparked again when she said, “No wonder why Josh left you!”
I took her by the shoulders and slammed her against my door and snapped the door in half. Wow both looked in amazement at the door, I tried to calm down. I think I made her bleed and she was complaining about that.
I don’t remember what happened after that but then she went upstairs and she threatened to stab me, I yelled at the top of my lungs, ” do it then!” I lift up my shirt.
After that happened Allison and I had to fix my door and I felt very bad.
When I was a little girl, I would go grocery shopping with my mom. There was a time where she was doing her thing, looking at the prices, figuring out what to eat.
I wandered off into the kids section where the toys are and I realized that I had lost my mom, I was crying while searching for my missing mom. I found her because I never have up, I kept searching and searching until I found her.
When I was searching my heart was pounding, I didn’t know what else to think but to find my mom, thinking of the worst scenarios that could have happened to her and me.
I never wandered off again, I learned that lesson from then on I never left her side again.
If I were to become a psychologist, I would use 3 different methods; Behavioral, Humanistic, and Cognitive Analysis. I think to be very effective a psychologist should consider all of the methods, to be a well rounded psychologist.
I like the behavioral analysis, it is the product of learning and associations because I think we do react to certain situations because of what we learned. When we were younger and you were taught that if you were annoying enough to your mom then you would get what you wanted, you would keep doing it because of the reward you would get. If something traumatic happened to you as a child, like one if your parents being abusive and every time you see some raise a hand you would flinch or every time someone yells you breakdown to cry.
I like the humanistic analysis, it is based on how the environment and how human nature is why people act the way they do because if you live in an area where everyone has to fend for themselves, they tend to be more mean, that is what they are taught. Another reason is human nature is based on raw emotions, which is sex, hunger and things like that, some people do live their life based on raw emotion.
I like the cognitive analysis, it is based on thoughts, thinking your way out of a problem. If have a problem with a boyfriend with him talking to his ex, then you should most likely think of it in a positive way and try not to get so upset, so hard to do. Basically thinking of a problem in a diffent way, therefore, changing the whole situation. Easier said than done.
Lately i’ve been thinking about my future more in depth. Like where I want to go to college, I know that I want to go to college for psychology but what branch? I have 4 sub-categories I have been thinking of; Counseling, Forensic, Sports or Industrial-Organizational Psychologist.
They all have pros and cons that I have to consider. Counseling Psychology is the only one I can go to college to get a bachelors degree and be able to get a job that makes enough money.
Forensic Psychology you need to know law and psychology, I’m not a big fan of the law but I know if I understand the law, I would be able to argue my point and win most cases. Sports Psychology works with different people to encourage them to do better and focus. Industrial-Organizational Psychology has to do with work environment places and the employees.
I have to also consider how much each one of the careers make to be able to pay back my debt to college loans, if I get self satisfaction from the career and be able to help people. So which one do I choose? I have no clue, yet. I have to keep researching the ones I want.
After I graduate high school I plan on having my CNA license; so I would she working over the summer making money. With the money I make I plan on saving for college. I want to go to college to be a counseling psychology. Or I plan going to Air force and pursuing my dream of being a counseling psychologist, either way I’m going to be a psychologist.
