1. Live Music & Crowds!!

    I love music! Listening to music during the day helps soothe me, or even uplift me, depending on what I am listening to.

  2. Must Check it Again!

    Who else has to check and re-check things, over and over and over and over again? I know that I have to.

    How can one wake up with anxiety? I mean aren't we supposed to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day. Most days I do wake up in a great mood ready for the day and feeling refreshed.

    Ahhh! Accomplishment!! Doesn't it feel amazing? Yes, I love when I can say, "Well yes, I did that." or "Yup, I finished it.", but today wasn't that day.
