... I will become.
So, finally. After travelling, and writing a lot, I'm finally back home where I be belong. I have spent the last few months in eastern Europe, mainly Ukraine and Russia - where I've had a great time. But now, I want to move forward in my life. No more wasting time fooling around. I want to be more than before.
So, I've started studying again. In 5 years, I'll be a freshly examined Psychologist, ready to take on the world. It's a profession that seems to carry with it a lot of prejudice, which is very obvious here. It makes me a bit sad, since to be honest, I expected more of you. I constantly read of people visiting therapists, yet there exists such a stigma against practicing psychologists. I find it interesting, as well as a big let down.
I hear people claim psychology to be a pseudoscience, a claim that's laughable at best. Anyone who has an idea of how legitimate psychological studies are performed and evaluated would know that it's scientific value is staggering. Right now, I am studying a lot of research-methodics, how to eliminate variables and how to critically audit my work as well as others.
Alas, studying this subject has forced me to move. Again. So, now I do not longer live at home, but rather 50 (european) miles from there. It is a bit weird, but to be honest, I'm already in love with the city. I do spend a lot of time reading, roughly 8 hours a day, but living on my lonesome does open up new doors... especially for the more weird stuff. I'm going to have fun.
Apart from all of this, I'm sure I have a lot to say.
But I think I'll choose not to.
