I had to have committed a big booboo

The problem is, I can't seem to figure out what it might have been. I think I'm a generally good person. I'm decent, I have a brain, I don't kick children. I make room for other people on the sidewalk, I don't carry a golf umbrella in the city, I move to the side to let people into the subway car. All of that aside, I had to have done something shitty to be having this kind of month. Karma you know, it all comes back. Take a look at L. Britt for proof of that (but hers is positive proof, not my usual bitch and moan routine).

I'm fully aware that I still have it pretty darn good. I'm an American. I have a roof over my head (at least for the next 2 & 1/2 weeks... oh dear lord help me from losing my mind over this apartment search). I have wonderful friends and family. But you know what? None of that stops me from feeling miserable lately. I know I just need to snap out of it. Easier said than done. Things are getting me down and I'm allowing them to do so. I'm annoyed with myself for that.

I took this picture out the subway window on Saturday. See how it's all nasty and grey and rainy and gross and depressing? It's beyond appropriate. Poor, poor me. Let's all have a pity party for Melissa. I hate feeling pathetic - so why can't I just stop? Convince myself everything will be fine and life is grand and full of light?

Yet again, Rach steps in and drops a pearl of wisdom right into my lap. You're brilliant - something randomly wonderful is exactly what I need to do tomorrow. I'll let you know what it ends up being.

Shitty weather doesn't help. You need one of those glorious spring days in New York - the ones where you run into a store and buy ice cream, 'cause it's so nice outside. That will make you feel better. Rach's suggestion is a good one.

And apartments are like dating - just when you've given up, something magically appears.

It is difficult to break a cycle of sad - and I'm a big believer in honoring ALL feelings - but I also have great belief in Like attracting Like, so...honor your sadness and remember the natural joy in your spirit.

do something randomly wonderful (as Rach suggests), and then make sure you have a little ice cream sundae. oh, and write me a letter. i want a letter. i also think that you should turn up some Kylie in your room and dance naked. and you should also go out, buy a lime green 3-ring binder and some sheet-protectors and put your very first invoice in it. and if you have a booger, pick it. don't worry about what other people think. same goes for wedgies and nermals. and make sure you stop by that little store next to your subway stop where everyone knows you so they can cheer you up a bit. :) *kiss*

Things go up and down in our lives. Look at it this way, you have to feel down sometimes to fully enjoy the UP times. Okay now I feel like a cliche' quoting asshole. Sorry.

You need to call me and we need to hang out! That will definitely make you feel better. You can hang out with Ella...I know I am biased, but she makes me laugh out loud. Laughing out loud makes you feel better. We should go running. Exercise makes you feel better. I've got gossipy stories to tell you. Gossip most definitely makes you feel better.

It is so hard to not be cliche but I think that you have to go through the feelings of doubt and unhappiness to get to the other side.

Embrace the pity party and then do what you can to get to the other side.
