my nose is clogged up. when i go outside my eyes begin to water. i finally uncovered my spring clothes to find that they barely fit me in any flattering way. it’s ten days until i go to boston to apartment search. and i don’t know where to begin to make any of these issues a little less overwhelming.
i’m a firm believer in letting yourself feel angry or sad or overwhelmed if that is truly how you are feeling. i don’t think it’s healthy in anyway to suppress feelings. but i also don’t believe in negative emotions lasting for more than 3 minutes. and anyways, puppy kisses and tea usually heal all wounds.
but what do you do when it lingers? it’s been at least 4 years since i’ve felt this lingering sense of angst. i just turned twenty?! didn’t i leave my teenage angst with my old bright eyes cds, old journals, and livejournal account?!?!
in short , i feel all stuffed up. i’m probably a full 1o lbs more than i’ve ever been in my life. my nose can be used for a musical instrument due to allergies. i’m about to make a huge move away from my dog. thinking about trying to detox makes me miss frozen yogurt. and i have this urge to ask for someone to hold my hand when i apartment search in a week and a half.
i usually hate documenting negative feelings on blogs, but you guys are such lovely human beings and i always adore hearing what you have to say: what do you guys usually do when you find yourself in a situation like this? recommend any good detoxes (i’d like to still eat grains. i’m not crazy, ya know)? any good quotes, nuggets of advice , songs to have a dance party to? all i have right now is that i’m debating the purchase of a webcam for my mom so i can skype my dog over the summer (this is seriously bringing me comfort).
alright, this post has taken me longer than three minutes to write, thus more than three minutes of wallowing. i think it’s time to hang out with my dog and make some tea. don’t you agree?
