Most people use their weekends to get out the house to hang with friends. That can include going to the club, a bar or out to eat but me I prefer spending a nice quiet (okay scratch the quiet part because my son and niece are far from the quiet type) evening inside watching movies or bingeing shows on Xfinity Demand or Netflix, with a drink next to me and plenty to snack on.
Today I thought I’d give you some of my favorite shows, in which I believe are binge worthy. Check them out below:
Stress, oh how I’m always stressed and over the smallest things. It most likely started in college, since that’s when I was hit with a taste of adulting. There was no more turning to mommy and daddy, except for the small things and even that was a stretch. Stress really didn’t start to effect me until I got pregnant and started to wonder how I was going to pay for everything. Money has probably always been my biggest trigger. I’m great with budgeting but it’s the one thing I’ve always worried about no matter how much or how little I have. Still some how I manage to get by.
Some may wonder, how do you know if you are going through stress? Well, below I’ll give you a few signs of stress then I’ll give you some tips to relieve it. But first, you should know stress can come in four forms; cognitive, physical, emotional and behavioral. I will list a few from each category.
I’ve been out of work for five month and it not all it’s cracked up to be. I thought, hey, I’ll finally get some time to myself and to focus on my craft. No more spending 4.5 hours on the freeway and more time to focus on my health and my writing. Everything I thought I was going to get to do turned out to be everything I haven’t gotten much time to dive into.
Wait, I lied! The first month of being off was great. I still had to wake up and do school drop-offs but I had time to do other things. I started that YouTube channel, the one I told you guys I decided to delete, I got to go on a few hikes and I was able to take all the naps I wanted. And I can’t express to you the joy I felt not having to put gas in my car every two days. I mean not having a job was great, but of course life had to hit me.
Recently I’ve been getting told by men I know that it seems like I can’t stand the male species and they just may be right. All these men that want to entertain me are already entertaining a million other women or even worse, are already in full-blown relationships. Falling into a trap and dealing with manipulation will make you want to stay far away from men. They play way too many games for me to keep up with so I’ve gotten to the point of telling them to stay the hell back.
They always ask, what do you mean by games, knowing exactly what I mean but here are a few examples if you really need them:

Have you ever been so upset that sometimes the only way to get over it is to destroy what once was, like lighting flame to a picture? Hoping that bringing that moment to ashes will also wipe every memory like you were in a scene of MIB (Men in Black) but nothing happens. I’ve been there! I can remember being only 16-years-old when I had my first break-up. I swore that I’d be healed once I erased every picture of us off of MySpace and ripped up the remaining but I was wrong. Actually, till this day I regret getting rid of those pictures because those were memories and good ones. Taking out my anger on those pictures weren’t going to help me let go.
