I might be

Chatterbox: Inkwell

I might be

I might be taking kind of a semi-break from the CB. Sorry. I'm just not feeling it lately. I will probably still post periodically, but I probably won't make any super long posts for a while. I'll still be on NaNoWriMo, though, for those of you who are there. 

Part of the reason I'm taking a break is bc of NaNoWriMo, and I'll be super busy trying to meet my 50,000 word-count goal, but most of the reason is bc I've been having trouble with random and irrational fury regarding stupid things like WHY IS THE LIGHTBULB ON THE CEILING, and I just can't do this rn. I don't know when I'll officially be back. It might be a few days and this'll end up being a stupid prank, or it might be a few weeks or even a month. For sure, though, I will post on this thread when I'm back fully. I would love help with the irrational fury, though. Again, so sorry that I'm not gonna be on here as much for a while. I'll still make short posts day to day, though, just not long ones very much for a while. I just can't stomach it rn. *bitter laugh* 

My suggestion is that when you feel fury (esp. irrational fury), think of those who have greater problems than you do (wildfire victims, etc.), and try to be thankful for the good things in your life.

Awww, that sucks, we'll miss you! I kinda have irrational fury problems every once in a while, as well. My strategy is to punch a pillow and pretend the pillow is what I'm angry at (and sometimes the pillow is what I'm angry at!). Also, I might talk to your parents about it? Just a suggestion.

AH-HA! I have figured out most of the reason why I've been weirdly and randomly mad at stupid stuff! LACK OF SLEEP!!!!! It also makes me act kinda weird, so in the future I will make a greater effort to go to bed a little earlier.

Also, does anyone have tips for sleeping well? Lately I've been sleeping really fitfully and waking up regularly at 2 am, 4-5:30 am, and 6:30-45 am, and my alarm is set for 7 am so I can do all my numerous chaores and stuff.

So, I will probably be on more often, but still not as much as usual, bc of my ridiculous NaNoWriMo word-count goal. Will be on MORE OFTEN THOUGH!! *takes deep breath through nose*
