(Writen on April 7 2003)

 

Got no one to do anything or talk with? Stuck at home? Feeling moody about something? Well this is the list for you.

 

1-Curl yourself up in bed and think things over (i.e. the cause of your depression) until you’ve got your head straight...

 

2-Read Archie Comics (Or something you enjoy)…

 

3-Eat! Grab a snack!

 

4-Watch TV (see if there’s a good movie on, try out new cool series)...

 

5-Find someone to talk over your problems with, if no one’s there; go on to the internet chat or see if you have any buddies who can on msn and yahoo chats…

 

6-Draw; illustrate your feelings…

 

7-Listen to music…

 

8-Write in your diary, confide it in properly and pour out your feelings!

 

9-For girls (sit in front of a mirror and think of cool things and styles to do with your hair), then take a picture of yourself once you look good, put on make up, stylish accessories and look good, people are going to see the photo and admire how pretty you can be!

 

10-Take baths, lie down in a Jacuzzi, swim or go to a steam room and sweat it all out!

 

11-Sit by the phone, think of everyone you can call and call ‘em up, ask how they’re doing or just simply say “Hi”; keep up your social circle.

 

12-Make a list like this on things to do when depressed.

 

13-Open up your homework diary, planner or whatever and finish up any schoolwork left.

 

14-Surf for the best of jokes on the net.

 

15-Surf up on your favourite celebrities, read up on their news, read their interviews, look through their photos and see if you’re inspired to make your own website for them.

20-If you’re a good actor/actress, can play innocent, be cautious and not get caught: play a little prank call, dial up some crazy numbers of people who don’t know you’re number and don’t know you… even if it’s simple as going “May I speak to (make-up a crazy funny name) please?” and wait for them to say some thing like “no, there’s no ‘crazy name’ here.” then apologize, say it’s the wrong number and hang up. Put it on speaker and make everyone (who can take a joke) laugh with you. Even get an empty cassette and record it and call it ‘prank calls’…
