Happy Aries season! Return to what you know by being passionate, spearheading plans and loving your friends. Remember to wear sunglasses if it’s sunny. Take care of your eyesight! Use your eyes to look at beautiful things. I love you :)

There is SO much art on my wall. Whenever people see my wall art they go, “Madi you have so much wall art,” and they’re right. The secret is that I hoard pretty pictures like a dragon. I take pamphlets and magazine cutouts and go to town.

What if we’re all in the Matrix or what if we were all created last Thursday or what if we’re all data on the surface of a black hole? Trick question, actually. Who cares! Pick up a stick and say, “Cool stick.” The meaning of life is chocolate milk.

If you open your windows to let the beautiful cool breeze in and take in the sunlight, a little voice in your head will go “It’s all going to be okay.” That voice is mine. Hi! Hello! I’m right (I’m always right). Just don’t ask me how I got in there.

Appreciate something that you normally don’t appreciate! What’s your least favorite color? What if you said is your FAVORITE color for today. Maybe you will fall in love with it, who knows. And if not, at least you learned something.

Pick some small task to do that will make your life just a little bit more peaceful, like making your bed or taking out the trash. Then you can rationalize sitting on your bed and doing nothing for hours. Not speaking from experience, or anything.

Write pointless things on your to-do list just to cross them off later. Remember: Eating lunch is still an activity! If you’re looking for other things to fill the time, consider: Hug a tree. Smell the beautiful spring air. Actively try not to think about all your assignments.

Remember that if you’re stressed, you are in control of your thoughts and you can just not be stressed :). I don’t understand why people think psychology is so hard; I just solved every problem. Freud (boo) would think I was a god, and he’d be right.

Find a small animal (or any animal, really) and PET IT. Dog. Cat. Gerbil. Hamster. Bird. Someone near where you live has a pet that will let you touch their soft head and escape your problems. Wrestle a womp-womp from its burrow; do whatever it takes!!!

Maybe you’re beginning to feel like Sisyphus, that guy who rolls the boulder and it always falls back down the hill at the end of the day. For a change of pace, roll yourself down the hill. The one by Sunset Lake! Don’t fall in, though. I’m not liable if you fall in.

You need a breather now more than ever!! Budget time in the day for MULTIPLE naps! Nap after lunch! Nap between classes! Nap at 7 p.m.! Nap right after you wake up! There are so many possibilities; why deny yourself the joys of sleep-but-daytime?

The romantic scenarios you construct in your head before going to sleep? They’re getting stronger. You have created a fully-functional doppelgänger that’s just like you except better, because they’re getting railed. Now you have to fight them.
