Donating (I really don’t like that word, therefore the question mark above…) is a weird feeling for me. It’s mostly good of course, that’s why I do it. You have the chance to help someone, who really needs your help, that’s really amazing.
But it’s also confusing for me, simply because I don’t have a lot of money. In fact I have about the minimum on money that I need to cover my bills. But I don’t feel poor, not like before, unlike a lot of other colleague students that could make more money then me, but feel poor. That’s nice. Actually being and feeling poor really sucks and feeling the comfort of having a little money rather then no money is great.
People often talk about cherishing the little that you have, but many can not do it, just because they’ve never had less then they have now. I did. So now sometimes I try to cherish what I have by helping someone, that have less. That happens mostly spontaneous and may be in a moment of some kind of “good feeling”. And sometimes, like now, the doubt, that I gave too much money, more than I can afford, bothers me afterwards. Mostly only because people around me talk like I should really be counting every cent (not that I couldn’t use some of that…) and never ever thinking about donating something till I make couple of thousands a moth.
So actually, it’s not like I should keep my money for me, but other people should give more than they do 🙂
Giving and sharing the little that you have is really a good thing, so go do it (they are a lot of ways, find your own 🙂 (you could take a look here ) instead of just joining another group in facebook 🙂
I saw that on the WordPress Freshly Pressed and I thought: “Hm, sounds interesting, you should do that”. So what do I need, according to Google:
- Teo needs to be updated (true, although I thought, that I’ve just done that, but I need to do it regularly I guess)
- Teo needs your help (I guess true, I don’t really know on what, but something will come up;))
- Teo needs love (totally true, I guess we all need some of that)
- Teo needs to dance (absolutely, yeah!)
- Teo needs numbers for his Razr2 (what is that? I surely don’t have it, but needing… not really)
- Teo needs a fund (not really, no, not yet)
- Teo needs to pack only what he needs (that’s a good idea, but where am I going?)
- Teo needs better journalism (like there could be a such thing, but I can keep hoping)
- Teo needs a chance (totally! everybody does)
- Teo needs more variation (hm, if you say so, I actually think that I have enough)
So, everyone who feel like it should do it: just google your name and the word “needs” [i.e. Teo needs], Click search and record the first 10 results (cf. here)
I haven’t post any photography works here lately, but the last one from Hel Des I’ve seen just stroke me, it’s so beautiful:
Lately I was really annoyed with some of my student colleagues. We are having our first class, that’s really only about therapy & co and I find it really cool, because that’s what I want to do later. We can choose between 5 profiles, so you really don’t have to do this class unless you’re interested in becoming a therapist. And what do they do to annoy me?
They make fun of the techniques we learn. They make fun of that we learn not to form snap hypothesis and diagnosis, but to ask questions and really understand the problem, and that’s not cool and doesn’t really sound smart assed like the psychotherapists on TV (e.g. Roger in Friends, Season 1, The One With The Boobies, 13, couldn’t find a link…).
It’s like in school or kindergarten – what the teacher says it’s just sooo not cool. It’s exactly like when you learn about the human body and reproductive organs and everybody is just giggling and makes fun of you, if you say the things like there are without giggling.
Making a psychotherapeutic conversation is surely not fun and cool, we don’t learn how to write a good script for a TV-Show and you would sound geeky if you do it with your friends, but it’s also not supposed to be fun, cool or smart assed. It’s supposed to help people and if you want to be a therapist, you better learn it and understand it, otherwise just don’t go to that class! We’re not in school anymore, drop the bullshit!
So – let’s go to the big picture:
Well, not me. Not yet.
But I’ve handed in my bachelor thesis last week and the prof was like: “O, interesting, I didn’t expect such good results, if you are interested I’ll ask some people if we can present it at the national conference this year.”
