    It Made Me Start Smoking Again

    I had quit smoking for 3 months when I dropped a coupon in Walmart. It was for B1G1 free for Oust. I couldn't find the coupon anywhere. I went directly to the car and demanded a cigarette from my friend. I have been smoking again ever since.

    Worry to Much

    I worry all the time and yes even over the small stuff, stuff that sometimes does not even matter.  The small stuff to me can lead to big stuff I don't have time worry about.  I hate sweating the small stuff.

    Those two pesky little numbers...apparently they're supposed to be 120/80. Last I checked, it was 160/80. Sure, it was a creaky old machine, but that's not far from where it is on a good day (140/80), so I'd believe it was accurate enough, and I wasn't really having a bad day, no...

    some little things don't bother me. heck, some pretty big things don't bother me. however, some other little things could very well cause me to freak the heck out. as queen victoria put it, "great events make me quiet and calm. it is only trifles that irritate my...
