Lately I’ve been feeling a little more manic/anxious than usual. Not being able to find a job is leaving me embarrassed to ask my father for money. This whole math ordeal has left me in tears twice a week (I’m not kidding, every tuesday and thursday at 6, I cry a bit). Also counting down to Coachella/worrying about whether I’m going to be able to make it has made me a wreck too. But luckily I have been in this state in the past and have become incredibly adept at distracting myself/instilling a sense of schadenfreude in myself. So if you’re feeling a little crazy, too crazy for your surroundings. If you’re feeling fearful, fearful of your future. If you’re feeling broke, too broke to live. Then let me try and help you get through it, because I’m right there with you…we’re all losing it, it’s like Rent…or St. Elmo’s Fire. We ARE GOING TO BE OK, just don’t kill yourself or get AIDS.
At least your not this girl:
Or this girl:
If those two videos made you sick, or they didn’t help…then try going to Pandora.com and if you dont have an account MAKE one (it’s the best thing I’ve done since school started) and when you finish with your account. Make an “Etta James” station, If this doesn’t calm you down…nothing will.
If none of this works, try looking at past Couture collections from John Galliano for Dior on Style.com. Essentially when I feel crazy I do one of 3 things on the computer:
1. Look at beautiful things
3. Talk to people that make me happy. (For you that would be me, so IM me now)
and remember, everything is only for now. I promise.
