    Taylor Swift

    I put on Taylor Swift really loud, sing, shout and sometimes cry and scream along.... that girl has written a song about everything and I always find at least one that is relevant to the painful situation of the time.

    Coca-Cola

    Something about this dark sugary carbonated fluid which helps to easy that burning feeling I get in the middle of my chest (my heart perhaps), when feeling like I am about to blow my stack. A nice cold glass of coca-cola, or pepsi does the trick for me.

    What Helps Me Cope

    I find that writing blogs to get my feelings out and secluding myself while doing something to get my mind off of whatever is troubling me (reading, watching DVD's...) helps me cope in difficult times. Also, coloring in coloring books lol. Though I'm an adult, I find it to be...

    Music

    I tend to sing along but at times I just don't have the energy to, so I just sit there and listen to the songs meaning, understanding the lyrics.

    Games

    Weird though it may be, I will escape into games when life gets too stressful.  In life, I am not at all a violent person, but when my temper ignites I have to do something with it.... so enter games.  I'll find a nice tower defense type (Onslaught 2 is perfect for this...
