Parks and Recreation is the only thing keeping me sane right now. I don’t remember the last time I’ve laughed this much.

how to stop feeling sad i guess

extruhterrestrial:

  1. put in headphones
  2. put a playlist on shuffle
  3. lay face down in bed
  4. sing loudly into mattress
  5. sing as many random songs as it takes for you to laugh at yourself for singing to your mattress.


repeat steps 1-5 whenever you get bad.

Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.
