Ugh. Just today I was supposed to meet with a CBT therapist but turns out Smith doesn’t offer that and is referring me to someone outside (who probably isn’t covered by my insurance). I’m sorry.
Dang, that’s annoying. I was trying to get referrals for off-campus therapists a couple of weeks ago, but two out of the three names given to me by Smith didn’t work out either due to insurance reasons or scheduling conflicts, and the third never returned my call.
(Smith Health Services is extremely frustrating, basically. It took a hospitalization for them to start taking my problems seriously, and clearly even now they’re disorganized)
And hm, something cognitive-behavioral might be good for me…I’ll have to look into that for next semester.
Men’s Suit from America, 1867-68
Metropolitan Museum of Art
This suit is of a style that was lovingly called a ‘sack suit’ during the early Victorian Era, thanks to its loose, untailored style, which was a contrast to the more formal ‘frock coat.’ It rose to prevalence between the 1830s and 1850s, however, and by the time of this suit’s making, was standard and popular daywear. The top hat also rose to new heights in the 1860s, having been the decade with probably the tallest and most ridiculous (by our standards) shaped top hats.
Interestingly enough, during the 1860s, standard suits had trousers or a waistcoat made of a contrasting colour of material, and those with all three items made from the same material were not considered to be quite as ‘proper.’ These were quite suitably called ‘ditto suits,’ though the less subdued ditto suits were usually made in garish stripes or checks, making this quite a restrained example.
oh my god counseling canceled my psychiatrist appointment this morning because apparently the doctor wants to meet me for a full hour rather than the half hour they scheduled due to my being a new patient
you’d think they would’ve figured this out BEFORE they scheduled it
