How do you deal with stress?

Published November 8, 2013 by ABadKitten

Image Sometimes I wonder, in the midst of having a mini anxiety attack, about what other people are stressing out about in that particular moment. How many peoples’ stress levels are as high as mine? Lower? Higher, even? And why? Everyone is dealing with their own something in their life because, well, that’s life. If we could control everything that happened during our days and easily fix every incident that happened, life would not be life.

What I also wonder, though, is how other people deal with it. How does the man who is going through a divorce which threatens to suck him dry go through his day to day life without losing it? What about the parent whose child is a known drug-abuser? There are so many crappy things that so many different people are going through but how are they all surviving it?

I used to run, walk, write, draw. Now, I barely have time to even cook myself dinner because of how often I’m working. The crappy part is that work is what has me so stressed out! I don’t have time to exercise to clear my mind and I very rarely even get the chance to write as I’ve done today. Finding something to help me get through these next few months without completely snapping seems like an endless search.

How do you deal with stress when you’re in the middle of it 98% of the week?


Would you survive?

Moaaa…*gurgle* Moaaa… *gurgle* MoawahAAAA…

I’d like to think that’s what I would sound like if I were a zombie. It seems my vocabulary would lessen quite a bit, though. As would my hygiene…and oh-so-glamorous appearance.


The Walking Dead is a freakishly amazing series. It was first a comic series but was turned into a show. I never got to watch it before recently because I don’t get AMC anymore in my room, but I bought it at Target the other day and fell in love. Zombies have always been a thing of mine, so I got sucked right in. It’s probably because the idea of humans getting “reanimated” after death due to some type of disease doesn’t sound all that farfetched to me. I could see it happening…

And if it did? How close do the zombie movies and the zombie video games get to the real deal? Obviously, there would be utter chaos, mass death, and world-wide panic if a zombie apocalypse ever really did come to be. Other than that though…can you picture it? Would you be one of those survivors that the movies and games are based around?

Without fail, every time I see a zombie movie I always think “Would I be one of these people?” It sort of sucks for me because my answer is usually something like, “Nope. You’d get your neck ripped out within the first week.” I guess I don’t really have that much faith in myself, ha. I really would like to think I would be a survivor, though. Then again…most people would. Aside from the not-so-few of us who would rather kill themselves than try at a seemingly impossible survival…or the other few who would give in and become one of the walking dead. Thanks for the support, guys. whatevah

Would you have what it takes to survive in a zombie apocalypse? I think I would have what it takes, honestly. The only reason I don’t think I would survive very long is because I’m accident prone and a super klutz. I would either fall down a latter to the mass of hungry demons below, trip and fall while trying to outrun a frenzied horde, or fall down a flight of stairs and break my neck. You know, something stupid. Because I tend to do things like that.

Seriously now. Do you think you would survive?
