I am supposed to go to school today and take my exams but I haven't finished my assignments yet. After work I decided to went to the city library and trying to read and absorbed my lessons but nothing would go inside my inside. Sometimes I wonder why it is easier for me to remember the novels I've read rather than school related stuffs. Not that I forget them or anything but I am just having a hard time putting them all in my head. After an hour in the library I went out without even answering a question in my assignment because I was really very sleepy already. The library is just a few minutes walk from where I currently live. On my way home I was thinking what would be my future if I would not be able to finish my BS degree. I already have a job yet I know that sometimes having a diploma is really an advantage specially living in a country where a piece of paper is highly valued rather than your skills. Living in a country where you are judge of what you can do by your diploma rather than what you have done already. It's hard to be trusted in this country without a diploma and I think in some countries this exist too.
I am very uncertain with my future and I can't help but compare myself to other people even if I have read Desiderata more than a hundred times that not to compare yourself to others for its either you become bitter or vain but I just can't help it. sometimes when my friends are discussing something I could sense that I am way too far from their intellect. I have read the books that they read and watch movies that they like. Then I remember one of my friends who asked me to watch "Sex and the City" like a year ago and I declined. She is a very smart girl and I'd really admired her intellect. So today I bought a copy of "Sex and the City" and also a dvd collection of its series. I am supposed to buy Lord of the Rings because I friend of mine said that Odyssey is having a sale and a copy is just Php299 but I decided to go for Sex and the city instead then I would next payday I would buy the Lord of the Rings.
When I tried finish my assignment today one of the question is about observational learning. I wonder why this is still considered a theory. My teacher in psychology said that in the field of science if one is really proven true then it is considered a theory and if it follows a scientific approach yet not accepted widely is considered a theory. I wonder what makes observational learning a theory. In my case I learned things almost by observing others that is by the books they read and also by watching the movies they like yet sometimes I learned through my own experience which maybe the reason why it remains a theory up to this date.
