    Vacation

    Finally, I have a vacation from work. I haven't had one since October of last year. I was stressed out to the point that I was starting to go mentally crazy. I already feel a weight being lifted off of me right now, probably because I'm listening to Yellow by Coldplay, in which...

    Can't Think...

    Work is too busy, everything is bearing down on me - no time for laundry, house cleaning, bill paying, etc.  Need not necessarily be a mind vacation, but just some time off from the computer and phone.  I work at home, so it feels like the work part never stops!

    It's Called The Looney Bin

    Have you ever contemplated just letting yourself lose it? I have.I can act crazy. Because it's easier to be ill than to face problems. It's easier to snap and in fact, feels BETTER to snap than to be emotionally numb.Yeah, I got **** to think about.
