I have some wisdom today

#1 - Do not ever go the gym angry. Your body will HATE you the next day. I cannot move and its giving me a headache. Ow.

#2 - If you have misplaced some items and want to find them, here's what you do. Get in your car and drive about 80 miles an hour, then for no reason at all, slam on your brakes. Everything you've lost will come rolling out from underneath the seats. I found my mascara, a book and my water bottle.

I had the day from hell yesterday and was in a REALLY bad mood. Those are really fun. I'm still not in a good way, but I read two nice blog entries today and I was inspired. I'm trying to just keep plugging away - even if there feels like no reason to. I don't know why everything has to be so hard. I feel like I'm being put to some kind of test or something. Really, that's what it feels like. That is the perfect way to describe it. I can't remember what movie it is, but I think it was Charlie Sheen (of all people) who was doing it - maybe Platoon? Anyway - the scene is where he is kneeling and leaning back with his legs underneath him and he has his arms stretched out back behind him with his head tilted toward the sky. He is wailing and screaming - the kind of wailing where the very depth of your soul is crying out. That's what I've been feeling like. The kind of angst where your whole body is reacting. Where you've just had all you can take of everything. You know the saying that "God won't give you more than you can handle"? God must think I can handle a lot, let me tell you. But, I do have a roof over my head, food to eat, a good job and my health (for now). So I'm blessed more than some. It is easy to feel sorry for yourself, but really, what a waste of time.

Hang in there. Life is a fucking bitch sometimes. We are all here for you. Life is too short. Embrace what you have, not bitch and complain about what you don't have. Yeah, this is me talking. Stop shaking your head. Everyone goes through dark stages (seems like everyone at the same time) but we get through them. Really look at what you have and is it really that bad??? Probably not.

I am not going to be all "love life" and rah rah. Fuck that, but life could be a lot worse. Life is what YOU make of it.

Good tips first of all. I have found many a lost item that way. And going to the gym is hella overrated. =/ but, my flab is starting to overtake my body so it might be a necessity soon. feh.

And you CAN do it, girlie. I'm sorry it's been rough lately. :( I think a girly chick flick movie night is in order soon with much comfort food. Are you and Hole down with that or do we have to watch something about death and destruction to make you two happy????? You guys know the kind of movie I like. It goes like this:

boy meets girl
they kiss
and screw
boy messes up
girl cries
boy serenades girl outside her window
juice cries
they marry
and buy a mansion

cuz that's real life yo

I suppose I can do a romantic comedy. Those depress me, though. Death and destruction always make me feel MUCH better. :)
