I’ve been going through a random bout of depression as of late. I have no good reason to be depressed, but everyday after work I am overcome by a huge wave of emotionally feeling like crap. It sucks, I need to stay positive at work because I think I have a good shot with this internship turning into a full time Junior Designer position, it’s been brought up many times by my higher ups. I just don’t know what to do about how craptastic I’ve been feeling. I don’t want it to cut into my work performance. Maybe it’s stress, I don’t know, my only remaining mentor out of the 3 I was supposed to have for this internship put in his 2 weeks notice yesterday (The first one was gone after my first week and the 2nd one got fired during my second week). All in all it’s been a tough and unusual internship that quickly became a real job without the title, being the only designer in the office. In the words of the VP of the company to me “You’ve had one fucked up internship”. I’ve been on two teams in the office, twice the meetings and twice the work and to pile on top of that the things I’m supposed to be doing as an intern (capstone project I have very little progress on). I also have to kind of “train” the new designer that starts Thursday even though her rank is above mine. I have few/no friends out here and even though I’m making an effort to be social at work it’s not the same. But even with all of this stress and lack of friends out here, I should still be happy, but I’m not and it’s super balls, but then again when have I ever been happy on a consistent basis?
Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.
How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!
