This past week has been intense. Work has been extremely crazy busy. Working overtime, weekends and bringing work home to finish up in hopes to completing tomorrow’s deadline. The only escape I have is the little bit of time I spend online submerged in this wonderful little blogosphere and seeing everyone’s posts. At least I really tried to catch up with looking at everyone’s post. No matter how busy I get, I also always try to put in some time to write up a post and I’m actually happy that I managed to squeeze in two movie reviews this week. If you missed those, they were on Balto and Starry Starry Night. Awesome movies to help me get through the week.
Blogging and writing destresses me and as I write this, I’m in the process of finally breathing (kind of) nearing the end of this crazy rush and in major lack of sleep. Coming out of this deadline has been tough and I’ve been bringing out every single way I can think of to destress.
Reading…hmm…that is a bit slow..eyes are hurting from extended hours on the computer looking and typing up numbers after numbers!
Close my eyes and breathe…imagine I’m in paradise…that thought doesn’t stay around for too long before JANUARY 31ST DEADLINE pops up in my mind and breaks my train of thought
In between, my back hurting from stress and my arms hurting from the fall I had last Tuesday…it seemed that the only thing that could help was my very last resort, which I finally did last night.
Wanna know what my little secret method is? If you don’t, I don’t know why you stayed to read through that bunch of ramble on top 😉 I know some of you are going to laugh at me though…but it seriously works (at least it does for me).
You ready for it? Okay…here it goes…
I read bedtime stories to myself. Wait wait…not just any old bedtime stories. No way! I read myself Dr. Seuss in that awesome book that I’d take with me to Desert Island. I just flip through the book and choose randomly one of the twelve stories that’s there and I read it out loud to myself (and my cat).
Last night was the perfect one to match my tired and over fatigued mood. I landed on Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book.
Talking about that, its just past midnight around here and seeing as its the final rush tomorrow and I won’t be around to write up a post, I shared my little secret with you.
Meanwhile, I’ll be heading off to read another Dr Seuss story. Wonder which one I’ll land on tonight?
P.S. What do you do to relieve your stress?
