AAAAARRRROOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Well, there goes that idea. ::D:

 

 

Honestly, I have no idea. It's not something I've ever given any thought to.

 

I guess I could go with 'but why is the rum gone?'

August 24: What's the silliest argument you've ever been in?

When I was about 14, my best friend and I had the idea to self publish a book of poety. We were discussing this while staying up late snacking and drinking tea in the kitchen. One of us thought every line should start with a capitol letter, the other not. We ended up both very mad and I threw some cheddar cheese! Then we both fell over laughing from how rediculous it was.

August 27: What is something that helps you destress?

 

The usual: chocolate, alcohol, yoga, but those are crutches for not being able to genuinely rid myself of stress.  A beach anywhere with no people would be nice. Getting snuggles from the cats. Getting together with friends for food and conversation, or for food and gaming.  Reapercon, as crazy as it can be, is a huge catharsis that starts to unwind the minute the car leaves the driveway.  Nearly any kind of travel is rewarding in that way (irritations like airline employees and other tourists not withstanding.)

Depends on the moment and inspiration I guess.  I sacrificed most of my evening to Automachef since it's free on Epic, and ticks alllllll the boxes The Incredible Machine did back in the day! 

 

As for actually viable things, ah unno.  Getting a nibble on a job application sure does quite a fair bit when it comes to reducing stress levels...  Assembling and cleaning up minis is rather calming too, but not too sure how well it is for destressing. 

 

Photography is fun too, kind of can't wait to go back out with the modified camera and the IR Chrome filter.  Should probably bring a grey card with me this time though, so I can properly set the white balance!

Who, the heck, are you? - A guide to living an unremarkable, low-key existence.

It used to be painting and cooking, but they both seem to be making me more stressed at the moment.

I need to find a new thing.

Foster some bad habits (too much TV, internet, games, junk food, etc.).

 

You could say I find doing the groceries calming. It's purposeful, requires very little effort, it gets me out of the house, and I don't need to actively socialize despite being in public.
