How can I get over a bad day?

When You Have The Best Of Both Worlds

@hannah montana please don't sue me, I am in college and broke.

Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days. Everybody knows what, what I'm talkin' 'bout.
Everybody gets that way.

I'm pretty sure everyone has those days where it's all good ... and then it's not.

Friday, April 4th, I woke up to a dreadful noise. My phone ringing, the girl next door cackling, and some ghostly noise from the air vent. Okay, cool give me an hour and yogurt and I am totally fine.

I have one class from 12:50 pm -1:40 pm. But I am late, it's raining, and my leggings are wet. Okay, cool I love the rain, I'm always late and I can wash the leggings, better yet I can pretend its sweat and it makes up for not going to the gym (apart from Monday).

I'm in a good mood, then I get to cleaning and drop the microwave plate. Now start the tears.

I really hope my parents don't read anything I post.

I went from being completely fine to a complete mess, but I think that's okay. What's not okay is that someone took my stuffed bear from the dryer and I had to do the walk of shame. Thanks to whoever it was (I hope you lose all your socks).

All in all the good is bigger than the bad. The good is bigger than the bad. The good is bigger than the bad. I'll repeat it as many times and I have to actually remember that it is right. I have to remember that it's okay to relapse its okay to break. It's not okay to stay like this all the time. If you're reading this, it's okay, nobody's perfect.

It's the little things in life.

It is always easier to pick out the negatives in life. We tend to dwell on them and drown out the happy moments. I asked a friend to tell me something that made them happy.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Dorothy

This time it's not a dream...


She stared at her tea and thought about it.

And it wasn't like anything else, because it was everything, and it wasn't like the sky wasn't blue that day, but it looked different.

And she had that stupid grin on her face, and her eyes were actually shining, and she felt this was the place, her silver lining, when everything would change for the better.

She is following the yellow brick road, and she's making my way to Oz—the emerald city.

She's making strangers her friends, bringing life to the tin men, giving brains to scarecrows when it's the lions who are scared…but tonight, they are emerald kings, and the magicians can't refuse them, the dark witches won't confuse them, over the rainbow, wait for her.

This time it's not a dream.
