Day 105: How to spice up your terrible terrible day…


Hey there adoring fans (Alex from Improv)!

So sometimes we get depressed when there’s a bump in the road, right?  Ok ok.  I didn’t mean to bring you into this.  This is my problem.  Hello, my name is Sarah and today I was depressed about my current bump in the road.  And then you guys say back “Hi, Sarah” and then I share with you all what’s going on at my job and why I am broke.  Unfortunately, I can’t really tell you guys about because it would be a terrible idea for me to document what’s happening until it’s over.  Don’t worry Dad.  It’s nothing serious at all.  I’m just standing up for the greater good like you always taught me.  And yes I will pay my taxes…in June…as usual…now get off my back!  Anywho.  I was super bummed out today but am very aware that being bummed out isn’t going to help the situation.  Like I always say, “Worry is a prayer for chaos in our lives” (you’re right.  I don’t always say that .  I stole it from the Spirit Junkie, or Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday or 16 and Pregnant, or something.  Whatever. It works).  So instead I decided to cheer myself up, and thought it would be nice to give you all some of my tips for cheering yourselves up when you get depressed because of the “off the record”  ass wipes that we have to deal with in life.


Sarah’s 5 Steps to Instant Happiness

Step 1:

Step 2:

 Hang out with a furry animal.

Better yet, put that furry animal in a silly outfit.  Here we have Flight of the Rubles Bee.

Step 3:  

Crack open a cold one and chat it out with your mentor.  She didn’t have it great all the time either, right?

Step 4:

Put something equivalent to your goal weight on your bathroom scale, and pretend that it’s your current weight just in time for bikini season.

Ok, ok.  You’re right.  This is just ridiculous.

That’s better.

And finally,

Step 5:

Make your own Harlem Shake video.

There you have it.  The next time you’re feeling gloomy about your career and life and bikini bod, just follow these simple steps and you’re sure to get back on track…or at least become a youtube sensation.
