1. I remember seeing something about how people will, in the absence of good reason, create stress for themselves. The study focussed on bored housewives who'd bored housewives who'd get freaked out over things going badly on soaps, from memory. So when I'm having a bad day, I watch ridiculous medical drama that I've already seen and let myself get anxious about how it's going to turn out. Because I've already seen it, the anxiety is manageable, and a few hours is usually enough to calm me down completely.

2. Hyperfocussing on LOOOOOOOUD MUUUUUUUUUUSIC, usually the underlying melodies. While smoking. I actually have half a packet of regular fags on top of the electronic ones for when I am having a particularly bad time. Sometimes the "ew how did I even smoke these DDD: *SCRAPES TONGUE*" can distract me enough to stop the attack.

About Jen

A 20-something fat, queer woman of colour living in Australia.

Reading: Fond of speculative and YA fiction, social justice theory in various forms. Would love to see more rounded fat/queer/female/of colour (and multiples of the above) characters in fiction.

Writing: Sometimes blogs at Hoyden About Town, dabbles in fiction now and then, hoping to find her creativity again.

Watching: Fond of sci-fi/fantasy television, with a strange weakness for cop shows. Would love to see more rounded fat/queer/female/of colour (and multiples of the above) characters on television.
