To good days...

My therapist taught me over a year ago to recognize when I have a good day, to cherish and genuinely enjoy those few moments when I can honestly say 'I'm happy'.

Today has been a fantastic day.

In seven days it will be a year since I last picked up a blade. Today marks the longest I have ever gone without cutting.

I've broken through the writer's block that has had me in its grip for over a year.

It's beautiful and sunny and I actually spent time outside in it, rather than hiding in my room.

I stopped biting my nails. This makes me happy because I can now afford the acrylics I so love.

The future still looks dark and treacherous, but I can finally see the glimmer of hope that's been missing in my life.


Here's to more days like this. Cheers!

Cause for celebration...

This may be premature, but I *have* to share.

In seven days I will have made it a year without cutting. It's the longest I've gone in six years, which is when I started in the first place.

I'm very proud of myself, but at the same time I'm not pretending that it won't happen again. I could fall off the wagon tomorrow. But I won't cut today. And hopefully, I will make it to that year mark and beyond. Even if I don't, making it this far is still a big accomplishment. *nods*

*waves*

Life is crazy and frustrating and depressing and beautiful and exciting and awe-inspiring. Right now I want to pack up everything - that is, the things that I can't live without - and run away from home. Though, really, I'm running *to* the next stage of my life. Gotta tell ya, it's about time I got there.

Anyway, besides this little cryptic message that I expect nobody to understand, I have a question to pose to you all:

What five albums(or artists if you're like me and need their whole entire discography) can you not live without?

I'm still working on mine but I know for sure that Queensryche's Operation:Mindcrime and 30 Seconds to Mars' entire collection tops the list. And possibly the soundtrack to Tfaro, but I'm not sure multiple artist playlists can count. *scratches head*

So, does anyone know how to make a fox using just the symbols of the keyboard? What I've come up with so far looks like this:

It's cute, but seems wrong somehow. Help?

I has new music...

...but I need more. Recs, anyone?

I generally grab new music by way of checking out new releases every Tuesday, hearing catchy tunes on TV shows or movies, or ravings of friends/family/coworkers, but I still feel as though I could possibly be missing out on some wicked brilliant artist.

So, please, I beg you, give me a few of your favorite artists/albums. Any genre, any decade, *anything*.

Thank you!
