It seems I think I am super woman, and I can do anything. Which means I thought I could write the two papers due this morning (neither of which I had started), work a full day, workout, and go out to eat with friends after work. And I almost did. I wrote my genogram paper last night from about 8:00 p.m. - 2:30 a.m. and then I woke up at 6:30 a.m. to edit it. I skipped the two page reflection paper and I will just turn it in later. Let's just say I've had a LOT of coffee today.
The genogram paper was one of the most fascinating papers I have ever written. It was for my family system therapy class (also a very interesting class). So last night I talked to my Aunt C. and my parents about our family. Getting dates and stories and all that. I'll spare you the details but there has been something so holistic and helpful for me about getting perspective from both Zuzu's family and my parents because they have different views of the family and it seems to paint a much clearer picture of the family dynamics. I tracked alcoholism, artistic expression, and religion's role in the family.
Anywho perhaps I'll talk more on that later when I am not in a hurry. For now....
I just bought this bag which I am SOOOO excited about. It's orange. And I purchased it because on my way to school my back pack broke.
O and for those of you into questions... Here are just a few questions in my head from class today:
- Why do some folks change and some don't
- What factors facilitate, enhance, inhibit, or destruct change? (e.g., change on demand)
- What elements does change include? (Affect, behavior, and cognitions)
- Where does change start?
"One cannot NOT communicate." Just because you are silent doesn't mean you aren't communicating. Everything is a communication especially in a family system!
