5 Activities For When You're Feeling Glum

I am the first person to admit that I am not always happy. I don't think anyone is ever always happy. We all have days when we're sad, melancholic, nervous, agitated, frustrated, stressed...the list could go on forever!

I have noticed trends of emotions in my own life. I'll have a few weeks of average happiness, when I have some normal stress but I am not constantly thinking about it. Then I'll feel myself beginning to slip down the slipper slope of sadness, and anxiety.

If you're ever feeling a little down, or under the weather, here are some things that might give you an emotional boost!

1. Read a book

You can pick up that book you've been eyeing for a while now, or you can re-read a favorite! No one said you couldn't read a book twice!

Fear of Failure

I'm a senior in college, I'll be graduating in May, and I don't know how that's an actual sentence coming out of my mouth. It doesn't even feel like I won't be going back to school after this summer. All my life I've held on desperately to the idea of summer, and free time but then there is always that "going back to structure" feeling. I always go back to school at the end of August...not this year.

I have this fear of failure. I'm majoring in Communcation (with a film concentration), and minoring in Journalism. It feels like I can go into so many fields: television, movies, magazines, newspapers, newsrooms, communication office jobs...so many options! But then I consider how difficult it is to break into this industry.
