“Look, Doctor, I-I think the doc was in over his head on this one ‘cause my brother’s, uh…
[pauses, then spins his finger around his ear and makes the "cuckoo” whistle]“

Dr. Aaron Fuller: "Okay, fine. Thank you, That- that’s really not necessary.
[to Sam] Why don’t *you* tell me how you’re feeling, Alex.”

Sam Winchester: “I’m fine. [scoffs] I mean, okay, a little depressed, I guess.”

Dr. Aaron Fuller: “All right. Any idea why?”

Sam Winchester: “Probably because I started the apocalypse. [taken aback] "The apocalypse”?“

Sam Winchester: "Yeah, that’s right.”

Dr. Aaron Fuller: [the Doctor looks at Dean, who smirks, then back to Sam] “And you started it.”

Sam Winchester: “Well, yeah, I… [sighs] I killed this demon, Lilith, and I accidentally freed Lucifer from Hell, so now he’s topside and we’re tryin’ to stop him.”

Dr. Aaron Fuller: “W-who is?”

Sam Winchester: “Me. And him. And, uh, this one angel.”

Dr. Aaron Fuller: “Oh, you mean like a- like an angel on your shoulder.”

Sam Winchester: [matter-of-factly] “No, no. His name is Castiel. He wears a trench coat.”

Dean Winchester: “See what I mean, doc? I mean, the kid’s been beating himself up over this thing for months. The apocalypse wasn’t his fault.”

Dr. Aaron Fuller: [again taken aback] “It’s not?”

Dean Winchester: “No. There was this other demon, Ruby. She got him addicted to demon blood. I mean, near the end, he was practically chugging the stuff. My brother’s not evil. He’s was just… high. Yeah? So could you fix him up so we can get back to traveling around the country and hunting monsters?”

Applying to Graduate School In Clinical Psychology
I have had a number of questions from people about the application process to grad school. Many undergraduate or master's students applying to doctoral programs for the first time. As I went throug...

I made a blog post on my Wordpress about applying to graduate school in clinical psychology based on my own experiences. I hope it will be helpful to at least some people. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Say hi to Viento (:

He’s my horse here at the clinic and he’s stubborn and sometimes a real pain in the ass, but he’s so kind and sweet and generally awesome.

I’m really going to miss him when I leave this place!

Yesterday we went for a walk through the forest during therapy and he was so happy and enthusiast. It was so wonderful. But unfortunately he really loves grass. Like grass is his life. So every time we went by a patch of grass, he was like “graaaass foooood need to eat staaahp” and then he’d mentally be like Sven from Frozen.

He’s amazing and I love him!

Thank you everyone for the words of support yesterday. I know that everyone finds first codes/deaths/emergencies/big giant events in the hospital difficult, but it’s good to actually hear that from people right after you’ve seen it.

I know I haven’t been around much, and have a lot of messages to catch up on. It’s partially because I am tired all the time now but also partially because I’ve been feeling down. I’m not depressed, but I am also not at my baseline. I am sure that being tired is not helping with that.

I’m not really worried about burning out or crashing. I’m not unhappy, or unfulfilled, or sad…. I’m just not feeling motivated.

I also think that there are a lot of things I want to do, and I have very high expectations for myself, and I’m just not meeting them right now. I’m definitely getting everything done for my clerkship, my resident just gave me great feedback, but I feel like my personal life is really lacking. I miss my close non-medical school friends, I miss going out with people and NOT talking about medical school, I miss writing poetry, I miss my tumblr time.

I just need to figure out how to make my new schedule work for me. Which is hard because I’m still not completely settled in, and I’m not feeling motivated, etc., etc.

Anyway, I am sorry that I’ve been lacking on the messages front and the posting front. I’m just not feeling like myself, and it’s been really hard to go beyond preparing material for the next day and reading about the day’s patient’s conditions and living through call, etc., etc.

Thanks for being patient with me.

Just this once, the most exhausting part of the work day had not, in fact, been tolerating other people. No, it had been his reactions to those people. It had gone normally for the most part. His indifference toward his clients had ensured that nothing went wrong for the most part. 

Then his boss had decided to mix matters up a bit by trying to kill him on a Wednesday afternoon toward the end of the work day instead of a Thursday morning and, before he knew it, he had started singing something in a minor key about his hatred for his employer as though it was the most normal thing in the world. It was only now that he had recovered that it struck him as strange.

He walked out of the Night Vale Mental Health Clinic after having completed a second spontaneous song from after his employer had left about his extreme annoyance at having burst into song for no reason. Most likely, he would avoid anyone he knew until this whole thing was most likely over. Perhaps he would call in sick or something.

If only it was that easy.

Friend time? Therapy?  Exercise? Tea? Tumblr?
