How are you?
How have you been?
How you doing?
We usually answer “I am good” to these questions, but are we good actually?
How many times we actually lie about how we feel to others?
How many times we actually feel sad or depressed?
Why do we hide our feelings and emotions to others?
Why can’t we share our thoughts honestly?
It’s okay to say you are not okay, it’s okay to say you feel sad.
It’s okay to be honest.
It’s okay to say “I don’t feel good today.”
Let me give out some background stories…
Basically I have started working with my professor for some research this semester. I got my training and courses done, so I can collect data on my own.
This research lasts three days per participant, so they need to come for three days straight to the lab.
Last week, we got one participant who was late for three days. His appointment was 1 – 2 pm. However, he got to the room at 1:45pm. We have told him to be on time the next day, and said he will. However, he is one dat later than the other.
As the result, we had to cancel his appointment and gave him partial credits.
To be honest, we would hope you to be on time to our lab is because we have tight schedule. I think in every situation in general. Being on time means you are responsible in a time manner and respecting other people’s time. Being late for 3 days straight is really ridiculous.
I still remember he told me that he usually go out this time because his class is at 2. Ummm….. If our appointment is at 1 pm, should you be leaving your house one hour earlier then?
Hopefully this case won’t happen in any participants in the future.
I have been feeling lost for a while.
It’s like I am making things more complicated than it should be. I always think how others see me, but how am I see myself? Do I even know myself?
I am scared of getting hurt, I am scared that I get used again. But what if I just assuming people are using me when they are not?
What if I depend on people so much and I forgot to actually take care of myself?
Should I even talk to him? How does he see me? Does he miss me? What if I just overthink? What should I do? Do I need to care how others see me? There’s so many questions in my head right now.
Can someone even help me? Or do I need to figure it out on my own no matter what?
I feel like a mess, I am a mess.
Last week, The Vessel in Hudson Yard is finally opened. It will be the new attraction in New York. But people’s reactions are not that positive.
Look at the design of The Vessel,
To be honest, it looks like a bee nest with lots of staircases. Although the view is nice when you get up there, is it worth the money to build something like this? In my opinion, I think the company should use the money into something else.
Also, people need to do reservation online in order to up the Vessel. WHAT THE HELL? Do we really need to do reservation to go up bunch of stairs? Just hope they will cancel this idea afterwards.
There’s also news about the company set the rule about whoever took pictures there and post it on social media, the company will have right to use your picture immediately. It sounds ridiculous to me.
Anyways, doesn’t matter how much I rant because I will still do my reservation, and take pictures over there LOL
