The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire*

I mentioned in my last post that I have been feeling a bit meh lately.  I've got some personal issues with people in my life, a little stressed at work, not running/exercising enough, and just generally being a bit snarky. 

So, how do I fix this? 

First thing, I booked a trip to Austin.  I LOVE traveling.  I love EVERYTHING about it.  I love the searching for the best price on tickets.  I love the BUYING of the tickets.  I love reading about the places I'm going to be visiting.  I love deciding if I am going to have a rigid schedule, or just play it by ear (I usually jsut play it by ear). I love the packing and the arriving at the airport and the flying.  I just LOVE to travel.  Even the hassles involved are just part of the experience (um, don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of sitting around in an airport, but it's still part of the trip, so it makes it worth it). 

Second thing.  I'm joining a gym.  It's about 15 minutes from work, so it's a little farther away from the office than I'd like (it's going to make lunch time workouts a little harder to do, but still doable).  It's also on my way home, so I will still be able to go, even if I end up working late.  I really need to run/exercise or I get VERY squirrely, and it's really hard for me to get out and run during the winter.  So gym it is!

Third thing.  I need to stop being stupid about certain things.  I have some people in my life that are not good for my well being.  I need to just toughen up and get rid of them and move on.  (Easier said than done, I know.  I really suck at being mean for my own good).  I also need to figure out how to get rid of my freaking neighbor.  SUCH A WHACK JOB.  He really is a BIG part of the annoyance in my life.  He is so freaking creepy. 

So what else do people do to de-stress?  I'm out of ideas already.
