Psychology & Trust

Haven't written in a bit, what a shame. Well just a little update, I'm out of school now, officially a 9th grader. Terrifies me to be honest. My friend had a graduation party at a hotel the day we got out and it was a lot of fun, I don't even think my high school graduation will be that fun. But I'm going to miss my Middle School and all I've accomplished through this really difficult, drama-filled year. Now, about what I was going to write about today, I was going to write about psychology, the way people think and accept, etc.


 All these thoughts came to mind after finishing watching the TV show, Mental, which just for the record is a really good show and had no reason to get canceled. But after watching this for the past couple days I started thinking, and lets start off with who I think is easier to trust and like, male or female. I think men are easier to trust and are more likable if they are nice and kind to you. So many men are jerks that I think when you meet one that isn't, that you end up developing a better bond with them rather than a woman. Don't get me wrong, women are really easily likable and probably are better in this sense overall, but I think when it comes to psychology you need to develop that knit bond with the patient, and maybe, just maybe, that it's easier if it's a dude. If this is true, my future job profession choice really sucks due to my gender.

Secondly, I just find psychology fascinating. Maybe it's in my blood since a lot of my family is into it, or maybe it's because I'm good at understanding people, but whatever has spiked my interest can't seem to stop. I'm pretty sure this is what I want to do in life, that I want to risk everything in order to give people what they need to feel secure and calm and maybe just give them someone to listen to. I know it's an interesting field to go into, and not a lot of people do, but I think that it needs someone like me. Someone that will be willing to break the textbook observations, cures, and processing just so the patient will be happy again. I'll be willing to listen and put them before myself, at least this is the plan. Maybe one day this will all be true, and people who have no one and don't know what to do will find calmness and serenity in me, but you never know. I could turn out to be just like every other psychologist or psychiatrist out there... But right now I think it's on to learning and then on to helping.

Wonderful, Oblivious You.

You know how everyone has that one person that makes them happy unconditionally? Well, for me, there's just this one guy that no matter how long I talk to him, or when, or what mood I'm in he completely brightens my day. I've really liked him for awhile now, and it never goes away. We've been friends for nearly a year, and he hasn't even noticed me other than a best friend. I'm always there for him, always supporting him, dropping hints but not obvious enough for him to get it without actually having to look into it and care.
For instance, he instant messaged me awhile ago, and told me he wanted a girl friend. He started telling me this story of how he talked to this one girl and accidentally got his words all messed and she just walked away. Honestly, I find that quite adorable, so I was telling him that to not worry and that it's fine and he asked if I thought it was cute or idiotic. Of course I said cute, but he won't look anything into it... I also told him this story of how I told this one guy I never knew and my first words to him were "Wow, you're eyes are like really pretty" and how he got up and left, with him replying saying like "Aww bless" and just being his normal self. I told him to not give up, when I really wanted to say was to look behind you. Look at who's been your backbone for awhile, and who appreciates you... But I'm countries away, and he's not into that. Though after tomorrow, I'll get over it, yet again until something happens again till everything kinda floods back. But what can you do? It's not like you can fight your heart or anything.


Hearts by Alex Day

"I’m not that good at writing but I thought you should know, every song’s about you ‘cos you’re everywhere I go.
If all we do is hold hands and laugh at stuff on TV, that’ll still be a real good day for me.
There’s people out there in the world like us who have chemistry, and the common sense to act on it.
But who needs simplicity in this candid game of hearts?
We’ll just keep dancing ’till we tear ourselves apart

Will Grayson, Will Grayson (A Poem)

Will Grayson, Will Grayson

In the middle of one cold Chicago night,
There were two boys; one dark and one light.
One was in a store to test his fake I.D.
The other was there to meet his love-to-be.

When the cashier calls the first one’s name,
The second boy responds for his is the same.
Incredibly freaked, the first walks out,
But the second one follows him, filled with doubt.

Once they got acquainted and got over the surprise,
the second Will Grayson got all bug-eyed.
Maura had called and told him his love wasn’t true,
For he didn’t exist, she had pretended to be him too.

Shocked, the second Will could barely breathe,
So the first got his friend to try and relieve,
The poor broken hearted boy,
Who’d been played for a year like a stupid toy.

As he leaves his friend Tiny to do some good,
He goes off with Jane to see if she would,
End up with him because he liked her so,
But she ended up being nothing more than a no-go.

After that night nothing would be the same,
Due to the odd fate that called the two by name.
Tiny was soon going out with Will Grayson two,
And having dinner with his family so his mom would know who,
Was going to be around for her son there through.

Then a day after the visit with Will’s mum,
Tiny accidentally hurt Will Grayson one.
Completely torn up, he just went home,
But Jane showed up to tell him he wasn’t alone.
She was finally sure she wanted him,
And would actually try and take this whim.

But it wasn’t looking up for Will Grayson two,
When he finally proved his dying issue,
That he couldn’t be the happy guy,
That could be with Tiny thereby. 

This story then comes to an end,
With Tiny premiering his musical about all his boyfriends,
And the struggles in love that we all must face,
Because it’s all a game of catch and chase.

But his musical gets a wonderful surprise,
When Will two stands and looks in his eyes.
“My name is Will Grayson and I appreciate you Tiny Cooper” is what he said,
Then all the other Will Grayson’s went ahead,
And followed his lead for this was the plan,
To apologize to Tiny Cooper, the big brilliant man.
