    • Comps

      This weekend, starting now, I will be locked in a room studying for comps. "What is this. . . comps?" you ask. Well, let me tell you. It is an 8 hour exam that encompasses sections for everything we've covered in grad school thus far. This test is what is standing between me and a Master's degree in counseling psychology. Not that that really matters since I'm in it for the long haul anyway. The only true reason I'm getting my Master's is so I can teach in the fall. "But Michael!" you cry, "Isn't that quite a short time away?" Yes it is! Therefore, if I do not pass this test on Tuesday, I will not be teaching in the fall.

      At this point I'm not super worried about it. I don't truly feel prepared, but I know I never will. We perfectionists never do. I look at it two ways. If I pass, great! I'll be able to teach in the fall, get paid, and see if this is something I'm interested in. If I don't, great! I won't have to teach in the fall, I'll have extra time, and I can maybe relax some. I'm pretty confident that I will pass regardless for one reason and one reason only. If I do not pass one of the professor's will have to teach the T/TH night class that I am currently assigned to. Therefore even if I truly screw this test up, I think they'll let it slide. Maybe not, though. I'll keep you informed.

      In other news, Elizabeth and I have begun couponing. This seems to be the latest craze around the country, but it's one that really seems to pay off. We've been able to get some really great deals so far, so as long as the stores and manufacturer's don't begin changing policies too drastically, this could save us quite a bit of money to use on important things like entertainment. Anyway, that's all for now. Sorry it's been so long, but I'm sure you've come to expect this by now. Till next time...

    • A sad day

      8 years ago

      marsmj

      Today at around 3 o'clock I will be having my dog put to sleep. She's 14 years old and would have been 15 in May. I know she's old and has lived far past the average age that most dogs live too, but its still a very emotional day for me. This dog will never be replaced. Not that I won't ever have a dog again, but she is one of a kind. She is the most gentle, kind, loyal dog I could have ever asked for.

      About a month ago I began to realize this day was coming. She slowly started eating less and occasionally would vomit. We took her in December to have her teeth cleaned and the vet, after running the preliminary tests, discovered that her kidneys had begun the process of failing. At that moment I knew it was over. She had ultimately told me my dog was dead. I was hysterical, mainly because she went ahead with the procedure without checking to see if we wanted to have it done on a dog that probably wouldn't be needing it, but also because I knew I was about to lose a dear friend.

      Since then, she's pretty much been the same dog she always has. That is until last weekend. The vomiting began to become a more frequent occurrence. It also was no longer a problem of how little was she eating, but had changed to can we get her to eat at all? I called the vet and was referred to another vet in town because ours was on a trip and would not be back soon enough. We took her to the new vet and he told us that Cocoa's kidneys had gotten worse, and also her phosphorous levels were through the roof. This is why she was not eating. The previous vet had prescribed a medicine to help the kidneys (which upon further research of my own I found out was nothing more than a scam med with no empirical backing that this pharmaceutical pushed on vets so they could get paid) had done nothing. He had never even heard of it. He did however happen to have some in the back that some little old lady had brought in when her cat died. He gave that to me for free and we picked up some more pills (this was before the research). Long story short, my poor dog is now so malnourished she can barely walk. It breaks my heart to see her in such pain. I knew I had to put her to sleep.

      My parents are coming down from home to say their goodbyes. This dog has been so loyal to me and still in her pain she follows me around the house just to be with me. I wish she would just stay in one spot, but she loves me so much that she just has to be in whatever room I'm in. I'm trying hard to stay in a single location, but I still have things I need to do. I know this afternoon will be hard, but I'm ready to end her suffering. I'll miss her dearly, but I find comfort knowing she will no longer be in pain. I'm sorry for the uber depressing journal, but I just need to get it out there. Thanks for reading!

    • Tolerance. Can we has it?

      This is a commercial that was rejected from the Super Bowl. Fox said that they would not air the commercial because it advances specific beliefs. In case you didn't click the link, I'll briefly describe the commercial. It's your typical Super Bowl commercial of a bunch of guys sitting around watching the Super Bowl when on the screen a football player has John 3:16 written in his eye black. The guys don't know what it is and decide to look it up on their iPhone. Then a logo for a website pops up and it ends.

      This ad is as innocuous as it gets. It isn't like a lot of commercials that push an agenda down the viewer's throats. It's short, sweet, and only discrete to those who don't already know what John 3:16 is. My problem is the reason they chose to not air this commercial. I'm wondering if it isn't so much a case of advancing specific beliefs, but rather advancing specific beliefs that the corporation do not wish to condone.

      The phrase "advancing specific beliefs" seems a bit shady for me. My understanding of the commercial industry is that each company is creating a 30-60 second spot to air between sections of a program to "advance specific beliefs." These beliefs could be as simple as Maxwell House being "good to the last drop" to Miller Lite "tastes great, less filling" to the Book of Mormon being "a good book." All these commercials are advancing their specific beliefs. If that wasn't the point of commercials, I don't think we would have the multi-billion dollar industry.

      Disclaimer for the next paragraph: I hate making this comparison, but I can think of no other that is more relevant in today's society other than abortion vs. pro-life which I feel is a much poorer example for the current topic.

      My real problem with this incident is that it reminds me of the intolerance that is truly in the hearts of many against Christians. Sure, the most vocal of our community tend to also be the ones who make us look foolish. Or at least their the ones who the media give attention to. That being said, I wonder what Fox would have said to an ad supporting the right of homosexuals to marry. This is a recent topic that has caused much contention around our nation between factions other than just those in and out of the church. However, it is much more culturally fashionable to be pro-gay marriage than it is to be Christian. In case this comparison upset you, I think Jesus would not focus so much on the politics of homosexual marriage or abortion for that matter and would have simply loved people and showed them that love. That's what many of today's Christians are missing and that upsets me much more than this ad being denied. Maybe once Christians or those who call themselves so begin to actually live like Christ this won't be so much an issue anymore.

      So what's the point? Well, I'm hoping that this will start a discussion. Either in the comment section or in your real life day to day living. One thing I am curious about is what makes it hard for you to tolerate Christians, or is that difficult for you at all? And remember, we're talking about a very diverse group of people here. Your opinion is definitely colored by those you see and the most vocal. Thanks for reading, and post your thoughts below. I'm interested in what you have to say.

    • Overwhelmed!!!

      Its so easy to get that way. Rather than looking at what we can accomplish, we look at all we have to accomplish and say it will never get done. Or we may look at what we are accomplishing and say, "This just isn't good enough!" I think its that mentality that has led many in the pursuit of education to become a neurotic mess. I am not, at the moment, describing my own state of affairs, but that of those around me. These people in my program tend to catastrophize and say that everything is "Too much" or "Too hard." Then why are you doing this? You know you can do it. You've done for over a year and a half now. These same people have no self-confidence. If there is any inkling of doubt in their mind about what they should do for an assignment or how long/short it should be, they send out a mass facebook message asking for validation. "Am I doing it right?" If you weren't you would know that by now.

      This is part of the reason I have become so quick to burn out. It is putting up with people like this. I no longer have the desire to play nice with these people. They aggravate me much more quickly these days and I'm afraid it may start to show. I am glad that I set up those goals for myself to try to allow myself to take my life back from this all consuming cancer, but I noticed today that it is easy to fall back into that trap. I read through one of those facebook messages and once again became annoyed with their insecurity masked by pleasant small talk. It was when I actually sat down to start the assignment that it actually began to hit me. What if I can't do enough? What if the professor hates mine because he thinks I did try hard enough? What if? What if? What if?

      It was at this moment that I sat back and reminded myself that life does go on. There are only so many hours in the day and much more things to do than there is time for. That's why I started this whole experiment in the first place. Can I get my work done efficiently enough to where I have time to do things I used to love? Sure I can. I just have to let go of the legalistic/perfectionistic ways of the past and allow myself to breathe.

      We had our evaluations on Friday. The professors all love me and told me so. It wasn't unexpected. What I truly appreciated from the whole ordeal was that one of my professors recognized that I tend to pull back on the reigns when things get difficult. I'm the type who doesn't put out my all in fear that I might get something wrong. He told me to not be afraid. To jump out there and try something. Don't be afraid to fail and learn from that experience. He didn't know it at the time, but that was exactly what I needed. That is exactly what I'm doing. I'm changing my routine. I'm bucking the system I've been a drone of for so long. I hope that gone are the days of stress and worry over my work. I've been doing that since high school. This is about learning. For years I have wished that I could get in the habit of learning something rather than memorizing. I'm hoping that will come from this. I hope that I will feel at the end of this semester that I actually know something. And at the same time I will not feel exhausted and drained like I normally do, but energetic and ready for the next task that is ahead of me.

      Thanks for reading!

    • I can do this!

      So, this semester is going to be harder than I originally thought. Looking at my total number of hours it seemed like this semester was going to be a breeze. I went from 13 hours plus 20 for work last semester to 10 plus 20. Looking at both those numbers seems pretty easy when compared to the average of 20 hours plus working for the church in Malvern I was taking in undergrad. The reason this semester was lighter, though, was because our comps were supposed to be this semester. Due to the fact that we're missing an elective, this was pushed to the summer. so I'm minus one full class and no comps to worry about. SWEET!

      Except it isn't going to be the cakewalk I expected. I go to practicum on Mondays and Wednesdays. Practicum is where I do actual therapy with actual clients. Its a great time, but I'm afraid I won't be as into this site (which I'll describe in more detail in the future) as my last site. On Mondays, I have a feeling I'll be working from 1 to about 6 or 6:30 then have to travel back home. On Wednesdays, it'll be 1 -5, travel home, eat really quick, go to church for orchestra practice. What this means is that at this moment (this schedule is by no means set) it appears my Mondays and Wednesdays are completely swamped with absolutely no time for doing work (I have class from 9-11 then go straight to prac). So there's the first hiccup to my plans.

      The two classes, other than prac, that I'm taking are two professors who are really nice and great, but that LOVE to assign busy work. I absolutely hate busy work. For one of them I will have tons of long readings to do every week. For the other I will have small assignments that, while not too difficult, are time consuming. This will more than likely be what makes it hard for me to keep my "No Work on Saturdays" rule. We'll see.

      To both of those add three big assignments that will be the cherry on top. A 20 page (minus a few pages for the title pg, ref, etc.) paper that is to be publishable (which would actually be pretty cool), a 15 page paper, and the introduction for my dissertation are all to be done this semester. While all this is very doable, that doesn't mean I want to do it. Bleh!

      Here's what I'm afraid of. Towards the end of last semester I felt very much burnt out. It was to the point that I was wondering, "Why am I doing this?" I felt like I was at my breaking point. I didn't care about any of the work I was doing, but was forcing myself to continue to do my best because of my work ethic (which I really wanted to throw out the door). Christmas vacation was great, but as I've said in a past journal I think it made me fall deeper into this laze that is going to be detrimental to my success. Luckily I've been able to shake some of this off as the semester has begun to pick up, but as I look at all I have to do, it's intimidating. I know that if this prac site turns out to be the stress I'm fearing right now, I will get burnt out 10 times faster this semester. At least as far as prac is concerned. I really want to keep the "No Work on Saturdays" rule. I'm going to have to really buckle down and focus on T,Th, & F to make sure this happens, but if my professor I'm working for starts giving me lots to do, that means taking work home, which leads to, "I'll do this later." I can't let myself do that.

      That's what this whole journaling thing is about. I'm glad I've put this into my routine. I already feel better just from typing out this journal. I know all this is doable and will get done. I also know that if I'm making myself accountable to you guys (or at least pretending someone is reading this) I will be less likely to procrastinate. As far as those goals go. As long as I'm keeping the Saturday rule, working out regularly, and making progress on my Japanese, I'll be happy. I'll keep you guys posted and hopefully this semester will turn out to be one of the best and most productive. Stay tuned!

    • Good week!

      marsmj

      I guess its about time to write a journal, huh? My initial intention was to begin writing these journals on Saturday. Its the last day of the week and by that time I should have either completed my goals or not. This Saturday however my wife left for our hometown to take the Praxis, a test she needs for her profession, and one of my suitemates from college came down to spend the weekend. Both were supposed to come down, but my other suitemate was sick with a stomach bug. We had a blast reminiscing about college and making fun of all the fools we used to know. We spent the weekend eating junk food, watching anime, and having a blast. We watched Darker than Black. Its a pretty good show. I'd recommend it on Netflix instant if you're interested.

      Elizabeth didn't feel too hot about her test. She said it was hard. I'm sure she did fine. If she didn't she'll just have to study a little more and take it again. I know that she would rather not take it again, but I know that in the end she'll get through it. Today she's going with a girl that's in my program at school to the movie. While she's gone I'm going to clean up the house a little as a surprise for her to make her feel better. She always does a lot around the house and it always makes her feel good when I get off my lazy butt and do something without her asking.

      As far as my goals are concerned, I've done fine. I, of course, watched lots of anime, played lots of Mass Effect 2, read very little, and didn't do much as far as learning Japanese is concerned. But I'm pleased with the leisure I've had this week. Tomorrow officially starts my semester. Sure we technically started last week, but I've had no classes yet, and the profs I'm working for haven't really gotten settled into giving me tasks yet. I'm sure that'll change tomorrow when I go into work. I need to start back on my dissertation work and get started reading for my classes so I can stay ahead. I've still been feeling pretty lazy, but hopefully tomorrow I can shake that off and get myself working back in a routine. Well, I guess that's it for now. Thanks for reading!

    • Resolutions

      8 years ago

      marsmj

      Sure it may be a little late, but better late that never.

      This year I have decided not to make resolutions. Every year we think to ourselves, "Self, I'm going to lose weight," or, "This is the year I'll finally get that book published." While these are good and all, they only seem to last for about a week or two and then we're like, "Screw it!" The problem is that when we make resolutions, what we are really doing is making intentions. I intend to lose weight. I intend to complete that book. Or whatever. This year instead I am going to set up some goals for myself. "But Michael," you say, "aren't goals and resolutions the same?" I'm glad you asked. Perhaps it may seem that a resolution is simply a goal, but goals go past the intent stage and into action.

      In counseling, we want our clients to set up small, achievable goals. They also must be specific. For example, the resolution "lose weight" is well and good, but what does it mean? 5 lbs? 10? 100? How long will it take? A week? 10? All year? It is good to have intentions, but there must be a specific way to put those intentions into action. With that being said, I have set up some goals that I wish to achieve in the next year. Most of these are very simple (perhaps too simple), but I'm really just wanting to get more enjoyment out of my life. I've allowed grad school to get the best of me, and this is my attempt to get my life back (sure that's a bit dramatic but that's how I roll). So, to do this I'm going to need your help. You won't have to do much. Just read my journal from time to time to see how I'm doing. You may even comment. This is just to keep me accountable and see how I'm doing on achieving these goals. I'm really not concerned about achieving the goals as much as I am on improving things from where they were. So, here we go...

      1) I want to try and take my Saturdays off. Grad school is pretty intense. There's lots of work expected of me for class, my research assistance, as well as toward my dissertation. One problem with having so much to do is that I let some things back up in order to get others done. For example, class beats, RA, which beats dissertation. This leads me to get behind in areas which is a bad thing for my free time. I want to make sure I get everything I need to during the week accomplished so that I can not do anything related to grad school (that I do not want to) on Saturdays. This day will mainly be for me to relax and do whatever I want. So what are my specifics. 1. Make a schedule of things needed to be done in the week 2. Check off the list 3. Blog about the results

      2) I want to work out at least 3-4 times a week. This is not the typical weight loss resolution (although I do need to lose my Christmas weight). This is all about stress management. Working out makes me feel better. I may not want to go in at first, but I am always glad when I do it. This ties in with the first goal because if my work builds up, I don't feel like going to the gym since I don't feel like I have the time and would rather spend time with Elizabeth when I have 2 free hours than the gym. Specifics: 1. Go to gym 2. Blog about the results

      3) I want to play more games, watch more anime, and read more. I could blame this one on school, but this is mainly my fault (but some school too). When I do have free time I tend to spend it with Elizabeth watching tv. This is because we watch quite a few shows, and we're usually trying to keep up with the DVR. I know that Elizabeth would be more than willing to let me play or do something on my own, but I tend to not do it because I feel like I should be doing something with her. Sure she pouts from time to time about not spending enough time with her, but I think in my head I make it out to be more of an issue than it is. So my goal is to take some time for myself during the week. My specifics may change, but for now they are. . . 1. Spend at least 1 hour a week on each of the three activities (gaming, anime, reading) 2. Blog about the results

      4) I really want to learn to speak Japanese. This will tie into a future goal of going to Japan. I don't want to go to Japan until I can speak the language (or until I have enough money). I have software I've been using, but my laziness has gotten the best of me. Specifics: 1) Spend 30 minutes a day with the software 2) Blog about my results.

      5) I want to spend more time on RvB. I know that I'm never going to be online like I used to be. I don't spend 12 hours a day in a projection booth anymore. I also know that I'm not going to participate in conversation like I used to. I always felt a little out of the loop when it came to most discussions, and feel even more so now. That being said, I would like to spend more time catching up on what you guys are up to and posting journals so that you can see what I'm up to. At one point I really felt like this community we've created was a part of my family. I want to feel that way again rather than feel like I don't really know you guys anymore. Specifics: 1. Post at least once a week on the forum 2. Post at least one journal every 1 to 2 weeks.

      Keep me accountable guys. If you see I'm not posting send me a comment berating me. Thanks for reading.

    • Merry Christmas to me!

      8 years ago

      marsmj

      So yesterday was a pretty good day for me. Started out by going to see LIttle Fockers in the afternoon with both families. The movie was alright, but it was good to spend time together. After that we went and had lunch at a little Italian restaurant where I told Elizabeth my thoughts on upgrading my Xbox. I had recieved a Target gift card and some cash for Christmas and was thinking about trading in my old Xbox or selling it online. She asked how much they cost and said I should go ahead and get one. Being one who doesn't question a good thing, I decided to do exactly what she said. We went to Jonesboro which is about 20 minutes from where our parents live and went to the mall where I used my giftcard to save some cash and bought the holiday bundle which includes Alan Wake, Forza 3, and a 250 GB hard drive all for $299. Pretty good deal.

      I then bought Elizabeth a frozen coke, because she LOVES them, and went to Starbucks to use another gift card I had. When I ordered at Starbucks she said the computer was down. She made my drink and I went to hand her my card and she said, "Just take it. Like I said, the computer is down. Can't make a transaction with it down." Score! We then went to Gamestop to get a cord to transfer my saves over and they were having a buy 2 get 1 free sale. I picked up Heavenly Sword, Wolverine Origins (based on what I remember you guys saying about it), and Dragon age on the cheap. Overall it was a nice little second Christmas for me.

      Otherwise, I've just been gaming and spending time with family. I haven't watched much anime or read, but I have watched a few movies. I'm working on some New Year's resolutions that I definitely need to keep. More on that later, though. Thanks for reading!

      no...I do believe science and religion can line up....but only when the drastic or sheeple religious types stop trying to force science into the small box their beliefs fit into, and ignoring it when it wont.

      Religions are are based on some cultures creation myth, w/ a dash of history thrown in to make it more believable. Those myths are just stories told from one to another to explain things that, at the time, could not be explained. We, humanity, have found a good, and trusted way to explain the natural world and a lot of the mysteries in it, and that way, IMO, fits into the greater plan the creator has for our race.

      I would love to be put on the retcast schedule, but can't find the roll call thread.

      We don't really use the roll call thread anymore.

      If you want on the show, send an email to retcast@gmail.com and let us know if you have a specific date or topic lineup in mind. I'll let you know now that we're basically scheduled all the way up until October, unless you want a specific week.

      So yeah, let me know.

      I saw a ticker note on AOTS about it....it definitely sucks, but they need to end it (or change it, if we are lucky) to allow the story to go on. they have pushed the envelope about as far as they can already.

      We're not scheduling into the new year yet, due to some plans Billy and I have, but when we do you can be certain that we'll have you back on.

      Not for much longer, I've decided to hand my notice in at my cinema. Having two jobs is killing me.

      Sorry for the late replay, getting used to the new laptop, and wasn’t checking my personal comments.

      Anyway, I don’t have skype right now, maybe when I move to TO I’ll have it, but it doesn’t work for me very well, and I haven’t downloaded it to my laptop. But if you really wanted to talk I have cheep long distant rates on my phone.

      I would be interested in talking religion with you, and I’d be happy to answer any questions you wanted to ask me about my beliefs (or lack there of). And don’t worry, there’s no way you’d be able to convert me. smiley8.gif

      And nope, not offended at all, I’d be more worried about it the other way around, me offending you when we talked. My family talks about religion all the time, so I’m used to it.

      I do hope you give me some ideas that I cant counter easily. Make me think about all these conversations again. Mostly I just talk about this stuff w/ my parents, and their tune gets old after a while.

      I may come back later. But not for a loooooooooooong time.

      In the mean time, see you around.

      I plan on laying out for more than a bit.
      Like I said, I'm done.

      Thanks, but it wasn't necessary. It wasn't you.

      It was them. I took it for eight months, but even someone, like me, who is willing to take a lot of shit from people has their limits.

      we are kool'n'da'gang man.....like I said...I am used to your view point.

      I doubt there is anything you can say that would offend me.....I am far more worried about it happening the other way around.

      Running is fun. Running dressed like the Flash is awesome.

      I'm moving soon, but when I get to the new place I'll put it up and send you a photo of it posted.

      Yup you can, my dad had a really high level of those and they still did it. It's more challenging but totally possible.

      I got the poster for the first Crank, thanks man! it's awesome.

      Lafayette is still alive and I do think they'll keep him for awhile. They really love the actor.

      The other characters basically don't matter other than Sookie and Bill. But I hear this changes as the books go on and things develop more.

      Yeah, I didn't like Harris that much. I tried the first two books. They're not awful, they're just not great. They're certainly better than Twilight though. Still, I think the show is far superior.

    • SharpAsATack

      That's fine. Just let me know when your ready to come on the show.
