    I need to bust out a bottle of wine,

    wear comfort clothes (aka sweat pants and tank top), blare some Led Zeppelin, play some Skyrim, maybe even go shoot for awhile but that's probably a bad idea with the wine around....

    I find it hard to relax sometimes

    because I get stressed out. I sometimes stress over tests/quizzes, but I stress over drama a lot. especially if there's just too much. like I feel like there's no need for drama and people shouldn't talk about others behind their backs. if they want to talk about them, say it to...

    I wish I could take my best friends

    and go out to a park with wide fields and just lay on the grass and have fun on a windy day. It's a dream I wish will happen soon because we all need it.

    I feel it's important to take a day here

    and there to relax, and take it easy. Unplug from the worries of the world, and do nothing more than what makes you happy. We often spend too much time carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders.

    easier on myself. I'm so brutally hard on myself and when one thing is finished it's on to stressing and panicking out about the next thing in line. Stressing really doesn't do anybody any good and can be especially hard on me and my immune system so it's extremely important...

    Really just want to lay my head in his lap

    and let him play with my hair. We can talk or listen to music or watch a movie. I don't care. I just want to be with him. Nothing makes me more at peace.

    I don't know how to relax. I went to the spa last week & it was a constant chore of reminding myself to just relax. I guess I stay so tense & rarely get the opportunity so when the chance comes along I just don't know how.
