No Anxiety Thread

No Anxiety Thread

I've noticed lately that I myself have been really stressed so I decided to make a no anxiety thread. Here you can talk about anything that makes you feel calm or happy. Don't worry about other people. Even little things stress some people out, for example, Blab about Books makes me feel weird. I think it's because of all the opinions flying around. It's nice but I feel like I don't have enough time to discuss everything, and I both want to and don't. 
So go ahead! Talk about something that makes you feel good. Even simple things. Like pets or music or sports. Anything!
seeya!

Goblincore stuff gives off this calming feeling to me

The Riordan-verse feels a bit like home <3

My AEs are just... they make me feel nice :)

The feeling when people compliment me or my work.
When people smile (under masks, as of now. But we won't talk about that here...).
Making someone's day a little better.
When humans actually help one another/do little things like holding the door, or saying thank you. 
Reading. (Wait, that should be, like, the first thing on my list...)
Hanging out/chatting/playing with friends (and that includes this wonderful place, aka the CB!). (Also should be higher...)
Drawing something great.
Doing something right (especially if I've worked on it for a while). 

And more!

So I've been essentially locked in the attack for the past week but the window is open and although the wind mostly runs parallel to the window (meaning it doesn't come in much) the cool air sometimes brushes in and feels so dang refreshing and, like, indescribably awesome. It is legit up there as most of the most relaxing things ever.
