Last night, I found out some troubling news about my boyfriend, which caused me to end things with him. I feel incredibly hurt and betrayed, and I was very tempted to drink my feelings away. I stayed sober for the evening, which was probably the best decision I could have made. I feel maybe I'll only drink for fun now, not to numb my problems. I've also very recently quit smoking cigarettes, which made my life hell. It does not make you look cool. It does not take the stress away. It only adds further stress into your life by becoming addicted to a literal cancer stick. I'm so glad I've had the courage to knock such bad habits, and I encourage all of you facing the same troubles I am to kick them, too.
On a lighter note, I've been kind of obsessed with the Animal Crossing soundtrack. I found some great 8Tracks playlists (1, 2) featuring Animal Crossing songs, so I highly recommend you check them out. You can check out my latest Tumblr project though, the CalmingCorner, where I've posted both of them. It's a new idea of mine to create a "safe place" type Tumblr where people going through panic attacks, crying sessions, or general fits of anxiety or anger can go to calm down. There aren't many posts right now, but I hope to post more when I get home from school in order to help those in need.
