In no particular order, here are 10 Things that cheer me up when I'm in a bad mood:
Music. I suppose that one was a given considering it's me.
A few of my best friends (Fangs, Philly, The Engineer, The Industrialist, The Chemist & Chocolate) because they can always make me laugh, even when I feel like killing people and putting large holes in walls with my fists.
Hugs and kisses from my boyfriend. (Exception being if he's the one who put me in said bad mood.)
A good drink.
Writing. Be it venting about what's bugging me, writing something senseless, writing random things that are on my mind or doing some creative writing; it works more often than not. It's therapeutic and wonderful.
Watching a funny movie or one of my favorite action movies.
When the Stars win. (Like they did last night. They beat San Jose 8 to fucking 2 baby. That game was AMAZING. I hope they continue playing that damn well for the remainder of the season. Two shorthanded goals, power play goals, 5 minute power play kill that they kept SJ from scoring on. So many points and assists plus wonderful plays offensively, defensively and in the net. They were ON last night. It was a fucking awesome game... for the Stars and their fans. You mad, San Jose? ;) And yeah, I know the trend for San Jose (my parents are Sharks fans) is to start sucking and choke around playoff time but shush, the Stars played really damn well and dominated the shit out of the Sharks last night.)
A good workout. Taking negative and/or pent up emotions out in a physical venue rocks.
Reading a book or my graphic novels. It lets me relax and escape into another world until I'm more calm and ready to come back and deal with whatever life is throwing at me.
So, what puts you in a better mood when you're angry, sad, upset or just in an all around bad mood?
