When I’m having a bad day I do a few things, one is watch Neil Gaiman’s “Make Good Art” speech. I will also make myself more nerdy than normal and do a marathon of one of my favourite shows. Between Buffy, The Doctor, Sherlock Holmes, John or Joan Watson, Olivia Benson, any member of the BAU, or any number of other favs, I am likely to find someone who strikes the right balance between butt kicking, brains, and sarcasm. When I am tired, stressed, or generally feeling down, I watch these things. It’s the last three weeks of school. Things are crazy. That said, I give you the speech “Make Good Art” and am off to go watch the two hour finale of Criminal Minds after taking a bath.
