what to do when you're upset by russiangold .

1. have a romance in your head .
2. buy a remote control for your camera and dip your toes into the pool of narcissism .
3. write a personal entry for your blog dissecting every aspect of the upsetting situation . post it, don't post it, whatever .
4. wear a fake mustache all day .
5. write multiple lists of everything you want : material posessions, relationships, work, lifestyle, everything . pin them up by the door so you see them all the time .
6. eat animal crackers .
7. notice when you hold tension in your body, & learn to let it go .
8. load up your ipod and go for a long walk through your favourite scenery .
9. find a secret place .
10. lie down in the sunshine .

    I was going to say that this list is originally from galadarling.com, but this was posted two months before hers, a popular article on her site "100 Things To Do When You're Upset (The Sad Trombone List)." Sorry!
