Week 70

Alarmingly, I still had plenty of work to complete this week, despite it being the holidays.

I wrapped up a couple of papers of my own and graded all of my students’ exams and papers. Started working on a kiddo’s report but haven’t finished it yet.

Got an A+ in Neuro (heck yes) and an A in Therapy. Wheeeee! Still have to hear from my other two classes, but I presume I’ll do well in those. They’re my easy classes (Supervision and Ethics).

Can’t wait to get back to the hospital this week!

Kodaline All I Want

When you said your last goodbye, I died a little bit inside. I lay in bed in tears all night, alone, without you by my side. But if you loved me, why’d you leave me?

Kotaku did a review of Superfight yesterday, and the entire second print sold out. I have never actually had this game in stock. Both prints have sold out before they even reached the US. And I am still convinced that every sale is the game’s last. I don’t understand what my life has become.

Oh, it’s Christmas Eve?  I wouldn’t know because I’m still writing my 25-page paper.

Guys.
I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and realized that I am reliving 2009.
It’s Christmas Eve and I’m still writing a paper.  I’m wearing an oversized hoodie.  I’m slurping coffee.  I want to die.
Merry Christmas!

Week 69

Heh.  69.

I only had one class this week, as it was finals week. I had to give a presentation in my neuro class on the study I’m hoping to run for my dissertation. I had renewed hope and enthusiasm for it after meeting with my adviser on Monday. She was super positive about it, and it was nice to push back against her a little bit instead of blindly accepting whatever she said.

She also told me that she’s happy with where my thesis is at.  !!!!!!!!!!

She also told me that her husband knows my supervisor at the hospital. Weird.

Speaking of which, my supervisor at the hospital is trying to get me to work on research with her. She is awesome.

At the hospital this week, I wrapped up a case that proved very difficult to disentangle. I pretty much gave this poor kid every assessment I could think of, and nothing particularly emerged from it. Got me thinking it wasn’t the kid with the problem…..

I also saw a client that I hadn’t expected to see again. Basically did therapy with her for an hour and a half. It was eye-opening and difficult but rewarding in ways. I think she has a lot of potential, so I know she’ll be okay.

Week 68

A lot happened this week.

On Monday, I got through all my classes and then went to a networking event downtown. I learned a few thinks about the neuropsychology externships that are available and met some lovely folks. My supervisor was there and she introduced me to a gentleman who got me thoroughly excited about his work. I’ll be applying to his site for next year’s externship and hoping for the best.

She also gave me the information of a friend of hers who has my dream job (pediatric forensic neuropsychologist), so I contacted her and hope to hear from her soon.

On Tuesday I had to stave off a panic attack with some pharmaceuticals because I had to be in a giant lecture hall with a kid who wrote about how he wants to become the supreme leader of the world after it is razed and turns to chaos.  Sigh.

On Tuesday night I went to my best squirrel friend’s house and cried in her bathroom.

I got a new case at the hospital.  She’s a total sweetheart, but a confusing case.  Trying to work out how I’m going to get at what’s going on with her.  It’s like a little mystery!
