Everyone has some sort of outlet when angered, right? Fight with your parents? Scream into a pillow. Fight with your boyfriend? Also scream into a pillow. Or cry, perhaps to a friend on the phone. Stressed? Go for a walk to relax and recollect yourself. Squeeze a stress ball. Or to settle all of the circumstances mentioned, simply punch a wall. But not too hard, lest you, unlike me, have super-strong arms and will make a hole in the wall (which is not unheard of, actually).
About the post title? Strange child? That would be me, because when I’m upset, I study. Now, let me sequester myself in the corner of shame for my nerdiness, because who the hell freaking studies when they’re upset?! Schoolwork makes normal people more stressed! D: Sorrow = academic success? WTF?! -__-;
My only defense is the fact that when I’m happy, I want to spend my time frolicking in the wilderness and going shopping (especially GROCERY shopping!) and hanging out with my friends. I’m so happy, the last thing I want to do is plant my ass into a chair and read my biology textbook. Or chemistry textbook. Or history textbook. Or do math problems while jamming (read: singing) to Asian pop and rhythmically pushing the buttons on my TI-84… oooooh, how very strange indeed.
New favorite snack: egg + goat cheese + sea salt + toasted sesame seeds + salmon furikake. All microwaved in a cute cup-shaped bowl for 40 seconds… with still-runny yolk, embedded salt crystals, and gooey, tangy, mozzarella-stringy goat cheese. <3 *drool* Must remember to take a pic next time.
