When I am abnormally stressed out, there is only so long I can take it until I have a full-blown meltdown. This manifests itself in a variety of ways, but can include:
b. getting teary-eyed when watching cheesy, corporate commercials
d. making enough food to feed an army when I only need a single serving
e. flying off the handle at nothing in particular
f. becoming fixated on doing sit-ups (I am terrible at doing sit-ups)
g. dying my hair
I didn't do all of those things yesterday, because my hair is still the same colour. But meltdown time came and went, and as such, I have taken part of the day off work to study and relax. I have only been home for half an hour, and I've already had several useful thoughts.
"Since you are bad at French verbs, it would make sense to focus on the stuff you are good at. French verbs weren't built in a day. Uh."
"You're home for the day! You can take a nap!"
"Why did that spider spend all night making a huge web right across the front door? Now you either have to destroy the web, or you have to go out the side door until somebody else does. Booo."
"You may be stressed out about money now, but when your CD release party is done, you'll be able to catch up on your payments. And hey, that's only a month and a half away. Sweet!"
"I love kale."
Man, I really do love kale. Off to nap, and then to study.
