How to lose your mind. Slowly.

I have a million and one things to do. There are literally 18 days left that I actually have classes on. There are of course more if you count non class days, but seriously. There's no time left. And I can't even think about it for longer than five seconds because I may end up institutionalized before I can even get through the week if I extend that train of thought.

But I have this really awesome/horrible defense mechanism when I'm stressed out. And I literally turn into a crazy person. I begin frantically feeding my soul with things that make my heart happy in spastic, spur of the moment ways that probably just really make everything worse because ultimately... I'm procrastinating.

OH, you want to have a dance party in the car on the back roads?? LET'S GO!

Drive forty-five minutes to sit by a pond and breathe in air that feels less stuffy? YOU BET.

Get hyped up on espresso and brainstorm million dollar ideas that have nothing to do with anything on your to do list?!? RIGHT NOW!

I'm not quite sure if it saves me or lets me caress rock bottom in a happy deluded state. But I think I like it better than alternatives. So. Moving right along.

I just wanted to share something making my heart happy right now. Some friends and I stopped at IKEA last week and it was my first time. It literally made me want to throw out everything I own and start all over again. I was in physical pain. So clean. So organized. So affordable. So FREAKING AWESOME.

Alas. I still have all my belongings. And only indulged in a candle. FROM HEAVEN. For real, people.

When I picked it up and smelled it, I literally yelled, "OH MY GOD THIS SMELLS LIKE... JESUS!" I don't even really know what that means. But there were witnesses. It just popped out. Without consulting my filter. But if you have the opportunity. Buy yourself one.

  1. Isn't IKEA heavenly? But based on your Jesus scented candle I can see you already know that.
