Oh, How Pinteresting

Today I am linking up again for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday! I am so in love with this link-up :)

My focus today is stress. I have a love hate relationship with stress and sometimes I seem to function best when I have a lot on my plate. Other days I wish that I could take a step back and just relax. These are the pins I found this week that reminded me about stressing out and then taking a breather.

Stress Causers:

I love this picture! It make me laugh and laugh, but talking appliances don't stress me out......rudeness does. I really hate when complete strangers choose to be complete jerks and it usually puts me in a bad mood for the immediate hour or so after the incident.

I am in love with these all white clocks. They look clean, modern, and can go in any room. I think that I might have to buy one. However, time stresses me out. At least 3 nights a week, I go to bed after midnight because I loose track of time and still don't finish what I need to accomplish.

This piece of art could have made my link up post a few weeks back when I pinned all the paintings I dream about owning. However, rain has lately made me stressed because when it hits NYC, it is crazy. The wind, the chilly air and chilly rain, the wet pant legs. I hate it all.

Stress Relievers:

Chai Tea with cinnamon - I currently buy the Spiced Chai mix form Trader Joes and it has quickly become my go to drink when I am in need of a quick de-stress. I love this pin because it seems so simple and that is one of the reasons I love chai tea, simplicity.

Adele- I love her music. Her voice is amazing and just listening to 30 seconds of one of her songs instantly makes me feel better. I have had her on my Ipod for a few years and I love that she is now getting the recognition she deserves.

First - I love the idea of finding old license plates and putting them together for creative art, but more than that I love to laugh. When I need to take a break I can always call a friend and joke about something stupid that happened that day or even 2 years ago. Laughing takes

...and if you happen to be a person that never gets the chance to step back and take a breather, make this your motto!

and in case you were wondering...I currently sit at just under 3,500 words for Nanowrimo. I think it is an exceptional first day considering I worked both of my normal jobs and tutored an extra student tonight. Thanks for dealing with these updates this month :) I need somewhere to talk about it and it is my blog after all!

    I signed up for NaNoWriMo too, and I didn't write yesterday. I FAIL ALREADY. -_-
