4 Methods to Handle a Breakup Well (as told by gif)

So as you’ve might have gleamed from posts this last two weeks or so, I’m going through bit of a rough patch in my love life. I’d like to say that I normally don’t respond this poorly to a break up, but in reality, all break ups are different and can be handled differently. I.E.:

life sucks

As a reminder to myself, as well as maybe some ideas for you to try, here are my 4 Methods to Handle a Break-Up Well (as told by gif, of course.)

1. When you first wake up, it takes a few seconds to remember why you have this sense of foreboding. I’ve trained my morning process to immediately start by saying ,”no” to the negative thoughts that will try to come racing into my head. Just keep repeating NO, NO, NO until you can find a proper distraction. (the app 9gag is one of my favorites.)

 waking up

2. Dates, dates, and more dates. Its easier to move on when you know you have plenty of options. Some times you might feel like, “no one wants to date me” or “I don’t know anyone” then resort to facebook creeping friends you don’t know well enough (that are single, duh). Or tinder, the “hot new app” for finding singles in your area. (this is a judge free zone, I remind you.) Last resort: repeat dates from guys/gals that didn’t work out before. Second chance, ya know? Just keep your self occupied!

 like a tree

3. This might be a given, but I’ll say it anyway. Distance yourself, or even better, cut yourself off from the person you’re getting over. Its 9 trillion times easier to move on when you don’t have a text message you’re waiting on, or over-analyzing every single detail about their behavior or words.

X cut off

4. Lastly, just simply know its going to get easier. Because it does, I swear to you on all that is holy, it will get easier if you make sure you’re treating it in a healthy way. A wound wont heal if you don’t keep it clean, mind you. Eventually:

 no power

I really hated using only 4 methods (such an odd number) but I couldn’t think of fifth worth sharing, and this post is getting long enough as it is. Everyone, have a good night, and if you happen to know a revolutionizing method to handle a break up that I don’t know, for god’s sake post. </3

7 Stages of Moving as Told by GIF

Craigslist is sketch, guys, let me tell you.

wierded out gif

I’m currently moving from my spacious, furnished, $750/month apartment to a small house a little ways off campus. So far I’ve been lucky– the house is adorably quaint, my roomie is nice enough, and I found a comfy futon for only $85 (mattress and all–YAY GOODWILL!). My current conquest is finding a dresser online (via craigslist) as I’m downsizing from a walk-in closet to a hole in the wall space.

As a college student, I’ve moved 6 times in the last 3 years. This is going to be my lucky number 7, and below you’ll find my stages of moving as told by gif:

Stage 1: Anxiety of finding a house.

Panic

 Stage 2: Hype after finding a house, ready to be moved into.

Born Ready

Stage 3: Denying and/or ignoring that you have to actually pack in order to move.

I haven't the faintest idea

Stage 4: Anxiety once you’ve waited to the last minute to pack.

Going to die

Stage 5: Do it All in One Day

Battle

Stage 6: Exhaustion after you’ve some how managed it (however poorly executed).

take a nap

Stage 7: False pretense of saying you’ll never procrastinate anything, ever, again in your life.

I’ve been blessed with some amazing friends that help me anytime I’m of need, and one of them is Dakota! Check out his blog by clicking here. (He’s also in this class!)

Lions and Tigers and Bears Bullcrap

I just had clicked “new post,” trying to think of what to write about today when someone behind me mentioned Jurassic Park. Immediately, I’ve decided to tell you about my unrealistic phobias.

Scared

Three things in this world absolutely petrify me, and they are often judged as being slightly ridiculous. Zombies, Sharks… and Dinosaurs. (Which it can be argued a shark IS a dinosaur, but to me they’re both keepers of hell and not to be played with.)

So I had a horrible babysitter growing up. My aunt found it really difficult to discern what might be a good idea of what to let a 7, 8, 9 year old  watch and it started with Zombies. These weren’t the slow, limping zombies from Night of the Living Dead, no. These were like the B-rated, sprinting son’s a bitches that were a little too smart for their own good. So no. I steer clear of the Walking Dead with all my might.

Then my mother had a–hey, my kid loves animals, lets have her watch this gruesome movie where dino’s kill and eat a bunch of nosy scientists–idea. That. shizz. messed. me. up. Six years, SIX YEARS I could not sleep in the dark. I was absolutely certain that a raptor was going to make it all the way in-land to Kentucky and use its freaky ability to open doors and eat me. To my credit, I was smart enough to realize that that island was not secured and at the very least, the ones that could fly were very much able to flap on over to the USA.

Then lastly, my most realistic fear (sorta): sharks. My aunt also thought it would be okay for me to watch Deep Blue Sea. Never seen it? Its about a group of sharks that are genetically engineered to be incredibly intelligent. At least thats what my little 10-year old brain remembers. Other than that, the only things I recall are these people being trapped in the middle of the ocean with these “things” and this happens:

So yeah. Some of these are “impossible.” But lets get real, if there is ever going to be a zombie outbreak, Kentucky has a pretty high chance of being where it starts.

Oh I could go one about my fear Chucky, or Scream, or my obsession that someone was going to break into the house and kill me, but I think these three are good enough for today. You’re welcome for the glimpse into my very traumatized youth.

Good night!

Dream Land is a Freaky Place

Oh gosh, guys. I had one of the creepiest slash awesome dreams ever. EVER.

Dog Dreaming

So, not by any means am I a comic book junkie. I know enough to tell who the big superheros are, and even can tell which is DC or Marvel (some of the times). But I had a dream of like a third comic book world. Let’s call it… I don’t know, I’ll think of something later. (Yeah, nothing. If you have a good idea, comment.)

Superman

ANYHOW! I find myself in a dark, old apartment. I’m conscious of the fact it’s my ex’s, though he vacated it long ago. I also know I have a super power that had recently been awakened, though I had no clue what it was or how to use it. (Spoiler: Its pretty bomb)

Firegif

So I had been recruited by the good guys, specifically my version of Super Man, in the fight against the evil guys. (He wasn’t really super man, because he could be injured, but he was crazy hot.) So he comes to check on me that night, because some stuff had been going down under the radar with the war on evil. When he gets there though, I noticed his throat had metal stuck on it. My dream-brain immediately jumps the conclusion that it could be laced with poison to control him. (Which would be horribly bad.)

SO as I’m removing the metal from his neck, he’s bleeding some from the metal’s sharp edges. Well just so conveniently, a villain comes busting through my door. (she’s newbie like me though, except she actually can use her powers.) Sadly, in like 2.5 seconds she knocks Not-So-Super-Super-Man with her ability to blast energy and breaks his spin. 😦

In this crazy adrenaline rush, while she’s killing “my mentor,” I just feel my power rising, my ability preparing to just erupt. Know what my super power was…? Get this. I could “bend” blood!

Carrie gif

How creepy is that? I just throw my hands at her and the bish flys back, dead as a door-nail. In the rush of it all, though, I wake up with a racing heart and deliriously type a note in my phone describing the dream because it was like 6am.

All in all, I avenged my Not-So-Super-Super-Man, and have probably one of the coolest super powers ever. (Unique to say the least.) I’m assuming we won the good fight with my amazing power, and we made the world a better place.

Bring it on


And because I’d like to make it a thing, here is a cool quote. 🙂 (Obviously unless I just, like, get insanely lucky I’m never going to get a superpower… but still.) Have a good night guys! Follow me and I’ll post an update tomorrow!
