Some days I feel like this. I am trying my best to survive these last two months of grad school! It’s been quite the eye opening experience. For those of you who are wondering, I pulled this from #whatshouldwecallgradschool (such a great site). GIFs and memes have been helping me with all the stress. Over the weekend An Xiao Mina (co-founder of The Civic Beat) reminded me that I have to “clean the palette” of my mind. She recommended a good game of Tetris. She was right. Surprisingly, I don’t get addicted to games. It’s just enough to take me out of my rut quite frankly. Working out has actually helped too. More posts in the upcoming weeks. Some exciting stuff has happened and more interesting developments on the horizon. Will write more soon…in the mean time, please feel free to share how you de-stress or what you do when you’re in your head a little too much. I need all the help I can get.

  1. Ways I de-stress:
    Singing along to loud music.
    Cat laps.

    The way I de-stressed in grad school:
    Went to the top of our studio building with my friend Sun Young Kang (http://www.sunyoungkang.com/) and SCREAMED. Then back to the studio for work…

    1. Thanks for sharing, Michelle! I definitely sing and meditate. I’ve been thinking of doing Yoga. But I need something that really takes me out of my mind. I used to skate (I did roller derby for about 6 months back in 2009) and double dutch. But now, I’ve got pretty bad knees so I’m thinking of taking up Pilates. The cat naps probably need to happy way more.

      I would love to scream really loud at school, but knowing me, I’ll probably get in trouble with Public Safety. Thanks again!

  2. I like music to wind down

    1. Thank you for reminding me. Sometimes, a really good tune does hit the spot. 🙂

  3. Exercise, meditate, cry, primal scream in the privacy of my car.

    1. Oh, I’ve done the primal scream in my car MANY-O-TIMES. Hoping all is well with you, Jean. We should connect.

  4. You’re too smart to get addicted to games. If you haven’t already, take a sauna or two. 😀

    1. I’m certainly not one to get addicted to games. I do have the ability to play them for a few minutes and stop. I think it’s because I just have way too much on my mind. 😉
