It’s been one year since I passed my state exam for Psychiatric Technician and I’ve only touched the surface of what’s out there. I know, for a fact, that there are more to see, more to learn, and more knowledge to learn.Continue reading Psychiatric Technician: Year One
“They don’t know who you are,” my friend told me when we were out. I’m shy and it’s hard for me to come out of my shell. However, I’ve been thinking about those words that were said to me.
My friend was right, they don’t know me and they will not see my anymore after. I just need to let loose and enjoy the night. I don’t know how they do it, how they can just be out and loose, while I’m here awed with what they can do.
I really need to come out of my shell and do more activities outside and enjoy while being carefree, yet still follow the law.
For those extroverts, how do you do it?
This is for all who feel sad due to work habits.
Do you feel lost and lonely because you feel like your life is quiet due to the fact that you’re not talking nor hanging out with anybody. All you do is, work and rest and you’re social life is slowly decreasing.
Adulting. That might be the term used, but it’s not an actual word, but it’s used by many people.
What do you do to overcome this loneliness? Have a great mental health, go out when you have a chance, it doesn’t matter if you’re tired. Go out and get some fresh air, go hiking, go to the beach, energize your body. You can’t be working all the time.
Ask your close coworkers and hike together, don’t talk about work. Go by yourseld, eat, explore, do something. Take a mini vacation, and don’t worry about work.
Talk to someone, open up. Opening up is difficult to those who have trust issues. Have someone to just talk to or vent or rant to. It’s healthy for you. You will feel relieved that you talked to someone.
This is another rant or how I vent out my frustrations out. This is just a writing on how you shouldn’t take advantage on who’s helping you.
I work on a team of 6 staff, it could be 7, it depends on the situation. See, when someone is helping you do your assignment, you should be thankful. There are other 5 or 6 staff, you call them and don’t depend on me. I tried helping you but you shoo me away. And when you need help, you call me? But, didn’t you just shoo me away? I’m patience enough, I can tolerate almost anything but shooing me away just after I tried helping you? That just sets me off.
There’s always that one person who thinks you don’t help them when, in fact, you help them every time. You can’t win in a situation where they only see the bad thing you do.
I want to tell this to someone but I feel like they won’t understand what I’m feeling. I feel like, they’ll judge me because I stopped helping.
Anyways, I want to be a water inside a soda bottle rather than a soda inside it. Think about that.
I’m over it now that I let it out. No worries, I will still help, that’s just my nature.
Imagine buying food outside 5 days a week for a month. How much are you spending for eating out? A McDonald’s meal can cost you about $10, multiply that by 5, for 5 days of work days. Then multiply that by 20, for 20 days working days a month. You are spending $200 a month on food, and that’s only with McDonald’s food, imagine going out spending $15 or $20 a meal somewhere else. Your could’ve saved that much money meal prepping for a week.
I spend about $20 to – $25 worth of food, lunch and dinner, for a week. While you’ll spend $50 for lunch a week. Can you see how much you could be saving?
I cook variety of food. From eggplant parmesan to tofu sandwich, and mushroom burger. Also, I’m making healthy choices with my food and I limit how much I eat.
There are tons of recipe that you can find on the web or on YouTube. It’ll help you develop your cooking as well.
