I changed my theme. I like it a lot better. :-)
So I took a vacation from work so I could do all the things I needed to have time to do and didn’t. Because work means going to work and not staying home and working on things to hopefully improve my future.
I forgot about the Olympics.
Needless to say, my entire To Do list is now precisely two items long. One, watch all the figure skating. Two, go ice skating.
Please ignore any high-pitched, stressed-out ramblings from this little corner of the Internet. Thanks!
I have way too much to do and not enough time.
Why does everything make me want to cry? And I mean everything.
Read something funny? Cry.
Read something sad? Bawl.
Talk to someone for five minutes, having a lovely conversation, be alone for not even a minute after the conversation ends and the person walks away? Cry.
Someone wants to have a conversation? Cry.
Look at a picture of something pretty? Cry.
See something I enjoy? Cry.
I don’t know whether it’s the stress, hormones, a mix? I’m just tired of my default state being “Let’s pretend to be happy all. the. time. when what I really want to do is latch onto someone and cry myself out in their arms.”
I need to buy myself a tiny whiteboard so I can write my daily ‘to do’ list on it. Then I will take great satisfaction when I cross things off as I get the tasks accomplished. And at the end of the night, erase the thing to start all over the next day.
That is how I will get this monumentally crazy thing done. I have way too much to do, nowhere near enough time to do it all, and I’m losing my mind to the stress.
Anyone have any good methods of de-stressing? Right now all I have is tea, reading fanfic, and watching Babylon 5.
Everyone probably knew this was coming.
I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS COMMERCIAL
I was just thinking about these commercials and how I wanted one on my tumblr, and now here it is!
Awkward confession time: whenever I feel like the world is shit and I can’t keep dealing with it, I watch this and/or read about cool science things to remind me that it’s not all bad.
i really love this movie
Everyone thinks of [fairy tales] in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections.
*flails* Stockings went live and I have so many more responses than I ever thought I’d get. And I only posted two fills! I feel so inadequate now….
Not really. I do have good reasons - I got sick for over three weeks and work was its usual holiday crazy. But still!
*flails some more* Now I have to respond. What do I say?!
(Please ignore the crazy person posting this. Thanks!)
To myself: a commitment to do what must be done for my own happiness and peace of mind.
Starting week four of whatever this thing I have. And I still have to go to work. *grumbles*
Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more.
I should be doing something productive and continue researching grad schools in the UK. Am I? No. I’m browsing through Tumblr. Again.
I need to focus. Focusing is good. How many more schools do I have to look through again?
I need tea.
