11 Ways To Get Over A Horrible Week

Shake off those bad vibes and get ready for the weekend.

11 Ways To Get Over A Horrible Week
Project Heal

We’ve all had those weeks that started off horribly and just never got any better. Hopefully, those kinds of weeks are few and far between, but in case you need it, here’s a list of eleven ways you can shake off those bad week vibes.

11.) Color

Coloring is a great way to release your creativity and is very relaxing. The great news is that intricate coloring books meant for adults are “in” right now, so you can head down to your local Target and pick one up. Or, you know, grab a Disney princess coloring book, a pack of Crayolas, and go to town. For the more dedicated, you can take it a step further with your own personalized coloring book, which you can get here: http://www.putmeinthestory.com/grown-up-gifts/pers...

10.) Play on a Playground

Playing on a playground can take you back to when you were a kid instantly. I suggest the swings, but others are partial to the merry-go-round. Just don’t get stuck in the slide tunnel!

9.) Look at Pics/Vids of Cute Animals

Here are some to get you started!

8.) Go Out With Your Friends

Sometimes a party is just what you need to start your weekend off right. Throw in some great friends and your weekend is already turning out better than that horrible week you just had.

7.) Go For a Jog

Bonus if there’s a scenic lake (or cute boys) to run by.

6.) Have a Movie Night With Your Friends

I suggest The Longest Ride because nothing says “goodbye, bad week blues” like Scott Eastwood shirtless, am I right?

5.) Cry Into Your Pint of Bluebell Ice Cream

Pro tip: put on a super sad movie (like The Fault in Our Stars) so if someone asks, you can say it’s just the movie’s fault. Sometimes after a bad week, you just need to cry. Once you let it all out, you usually end up feeling a lot better.

4.) Go to a Trampoline Park

I’m convinced that trampolines are magical happy-machines. Jumping off a trampoline into a pit of foam blocks or nailing a 14 year-old in the leg during an intense game of trampoline dodgeball is a great stress reliever after a terrible week of cramming for final exams.

3.) Participate in a Little Retail Therapy

Go buy something super cute for yourself and in your budget, of course, to stay away from that icky buyer’s remorse that usually hits me about .02 seconds after I walk out of the store with my purchase.

2.) Call your Mom

Moms have magical powers and can make you feel better about anything. If you don’t live close enough to talk to her in person, I suggest giving her a call; she’ll turn your week around in no time.

1.) Watch Funny Videos Until You Cry

The best way to shake off a horrible week is to laugh…a lot. It’s a proven (by me) fact that if you watch this one enough times, you’ll laugh so hard you cry.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
