Warning: This is a theory in testing.
Tomorrow is Monday and the first day of school and I find myself freaking out and panicking and generally being in a not good mood.
I actually woke up drenched in sweat last night thanks to a horrid school nightmare. I’m sad I know…
Which is stupid because my attitude is ruining a perfectly good day.
So this is me trying to change my approach.
Start with concentrating on the here and now.
It’s Sunday morning.
I am blinded by the rising sun with a cup of hot, steaming coffee beside me.
I’m wearing my favorite PJs and my super comfy fluffy socks.
Things could be worse.
Like I said before no use ruining a pretty day with ugly thoughts.
Maybe I’ll bake something nice for me to enjoy tomorrow for breakfast… Like cupcakes! Nothing says good day than coffee and cupcakes.
Sorta like this:
Only the cupcake will be bigger and the coffee mug too.
Because like Sharpay taught me when I was but a little girl
Ok so the baking totally worked. Baking is my best instant therapy ever!!
And if I’m reaaally feeling down and haven’t even slightly cheered up after the first batch ok cookies and take things up a notch.
Cupcakes and music.
Has yet to fail me.
So that’s what I did after writing the first quarter of the post.
Baking with music.
Which reminds me, anyone in dire need of 2 dozen cookies and about a dozen cupcakes?
Ok that’s definitely my Step #2: Do something you LOVE! Be it baking, reading, listening to music (just not Imagine Dragons -that’s a real downer), dancing, knitting, crocheting (!?!), etc. Whatever it is
And Gawd forbid Don’t. Start. Revising.
If I see you with a school related book in your hand on your last day of freedom, I will slap you. And I’m good at it. Ask my brother.
Happily stare at your new pens and pwweeeetty new notebooks
I don’t know about you but my day is already almost over….
But if you still aren’t in a half ways decent mood you could always
♠ eat ice cream (preferably with Sprinkles) while watching Scrubs
♠ hit a pillow (surprisingly effective)
♠ go outside and walk around until your brain feels less stuffy
♠ meet up with friends (this is a risky one though, I don’t know about you but my friends tend to end up whining about the impending day, which kiinda ruins the feeling we’re going for. But if your don’t, great! Then go, grab that phone, call your BFF (don’t worry I don’t have one either ;) ) go out and get some coffee and a cupcake, which leads to my next point)
♠ have a cupcake. (Or a cookie. Cookies are acceptable as well)
(Sorry about the excessive cupcake spamming but I’ve NEVER made such beautiful cupcakes before!!)
And if all that doesn’t help….
Go to bed.
You’re a lost cause. (No offence wink )
