My Blog Therapy: Your Entertainment

Although I enjoy entertaining the masses with my strange wit and eccentric humor, blogging has served as my therapeutic outlet for years. When life presents you with salty lemons, you make raspberry lemonade by ranting and raving on your own personal platform! I’ve learned that blogging is a life long commitment that benefits your mind, body, and spirit. You may not earn a substantial amount of money, but at least you feel like your thoughts and ideas are transcended into the world via WiFi connection.

Politics

Since the disappointing 2016 presidential election in which all decent persons everywhere gasped collectively, I have written more than enough posts about Donald Trump. I use to watch the cable news stories during both terms of Obama’s presidency, but as soon as the Trump twat came along, its been hard to watch the direction of the country. I also find it disturbing that Republicans are allowing Trump to destroy their party. Personally, I’ve never cared for republican politicians because I believe in a woman’s right to choose, and I am against their voter suppression laws. If you want to refer to me as a liberal, go right ahead; but I refer to myself as a common sense voter with a very prickly opinion about the direction of our government.

Society and Social Issues

Our country is forever changing, and sometimes our laws are slow to catch up with our very diverse population. I was so excited about the LGBTQ community having the right to get married like all Americans. After the Supreme Court made the monumental decision, the world didn’t cease to exist and the Dow Jones Industrial Complex didn’t implode. Opponents of the measure took to social media making grand and apocalyptic statements about the country rotting from inside out, and proclaiming that the US is a Christian nation founded on Christian principles. I’m a Christian, and I must say, the United States is far from a Christian nation. The hate and bigotry supported in this country has nothing to do with religious beliefs. Racially motivated voter suppression driven by Republicans and the unresolved water crisis and poisoning of American citizens in Flint, Michigan doesn’t feel Christian to me. So, taking out the religious aspects of people’s argument, there was no reason to deny marriage equality to a specific population living a certain lifestyle. In the end, a population of people were granted rights they should have enjoyed since the conception of our great nation.

    1. I loosely meant that my life is full of psychology. I was going to put “facing the psychology of my life” but I got tired of changing it and didn’t feel like doing more with it. lol I’m a doctorate psych student and in some of my earlier posts, before I became burned out and exhausted with psychology, I used to address the certain aspects of psychology in my life. Now, a year to go and hundreds of psych papers completed, I hate psychology and couldn’t run faster from it. I’m so tired of it. But yeah, in a nut shell, thats whats going on with that. The whole truth and nothing but… lol

      1. Oh, a PhD in psychology. no wonder you’re sick of it. I started grad school for experimental psychology 43 years ago. Luckily I was kicked out after one term. I was already disillusioned by the senselessness of the research. I wound up getting a degree in social work and I’ve had a wonderful career. Never burned out. Still doing it. Perhaps I burned out and nobody told me. Hey, good luck.

      2. Thank you!! I did Social Work for six years right out of college but I was meant for something else. I loved it when I was single, no kid or responsibilities. I had the time to put in extra work. Now that I’m married with a baby, social work and the PhD program almost drove me insane. I kind of fell into social work, instead of choosing it. I was unemployed and the state was hiring so I decided to be a social worker. It was cool at first. But I relocated to California and was hired by a foster care agency. I worked their for two years and absolutely hated that place and got fed up with social work. I knew it was time to do what I knew was my calling, becoming a psychologist. I still love psychology, but I just want at least a two week break from it. lol I want to take a nap just thinking about it.

  1. Hi TL- Thank you for following my photography blog. I hope you’re inspired. What a great blog– you have a lot going on. I am really enjoying your posts and seeing what’s in your head.

  2. Thanks for the follow! Love what I’ve read on your blog so far so I’m returning the favor. I’m a psych nerd too but I haven’t started grad school for it yet. Reading about some of your burnout struggles is a good reminder that it can wait a few years.

  3. Good Monday Morning to you! Thank you for the follow! A fun little circus you have going on here, indeed. I’ll be visiting for change of perspective 🙂

  4. Alright! Now you must be thinking am stalking you! 😛 The thing is just wanted to drop by this time to thank for following my blog GravityGate.wordpress.com!We are aalready connected on G+ & need I say I liked your writing 🙂 Keep up the circus acts!

  5. Thanks so much for following my blog, I always appreciate a new welcome….please visit whenever you can, and in the mood 🙂 and btw, your blog is alluring…I will be back for more 🙂 Have a sweet day!

  6. Ni hao Southern Gal!
    I am chuffed as all get out that a young hip thing like you would decide to follow my blog about life in China. Mind you, when I look in the mirror I always get a shock because the face I see doesn’t match how I feel, which is much as you are! I shall enjoy browsing through your past blog posts. Hope you have a good week.
    Zai jian! Herschelian.

  7. Hi I nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog Award. You should have received a ping for the post I wrote but let me know if you did not! I love a writer who is as opinionated as I am!!!

  8. So glad I found your blog. Taking a break from a PhD in Comparative Lit, so I know what you mean with needing a break. Always wanted to study Psychology, but opted for Writing and Cultural Studies in college instead. My mom used to teach / train social workers, and she advised against it when I was playing with the thought. So now I try to help people – and children / teens especially – with teaching and writing. Especially the ones who moved around a lot and have identity issues due to mixed backgrounds, which is where I’m coming from.

    Anyway, all this to let you know who is stalking your blog at this (ungodly) hour (woke up too early, and decided to put myself in a good mood by visiting my favorite blogs). And that reading your blog does provide me with some much beeded sanity. Thank you.
