how to cry




How to cry:


* Be pathetic, because you can.

* Wear your blackest black mascara, the cheapest eyeliner you own. The best way to cry is with black tears.


* Tissues are a sell-out.


* Get in bed with your shoes on.


* Or lay on the floor.


* Trash your hair-do.

* Eat deep-fried food. Ice cream is overrated and makes you cold.

* Wear a huge, hideous sweater.


* Hang out with your mom because she is nice plus she's also obliged by some unwritten covenant to pet your hair and say the right thing and tell you that you're pretty.


* Recall the fact that everyone else in the world has a better life than you, which is true.


* Go ahead and read this angst-girl post again because it's depressing but be quick about it because I feel like it'll be deleted by morning, which is the sensible thing to do.





Weep.

    I like to cry. It feels good. Especially when it's been a long time coming.

  2. Crying is cathartic, which is good. But it makes me look like Rudolph, which is bad.

Oh thanks. You're pretty.
