    No, when you're driving, your focus is on the road, not being entertainment for others.
    I've had to drive a few bandmates home when they were too drunk or stoned to get behind the wheel. My job is to get them home in one piece. If they still need entertainment, I could drop them off on the side of the road and let them entertain themselves.

    Very true. What I like to tell my passengers is, "I have the power to end your life. You have the power to make it more likely."

    I've actually driven stoned and it isn't a pleasent experience, for sure. Makes me more paranoid and extra cautious when driving.

    Like, if it's one thing just to go from one place to another, mainly to pick up some food cause, you know.... Munchies. But I've actually done hour trips high and it certainly can make you paranoid.

    Well, tomorrow I see my therapist for the first time.... And of course, because of my current issues, I'm very paranoid about what's going to happen. :rolleyes: stupid anxiety.

    Then again, I guess that's to be expected when you're pretty much new to therapy.....

    So.... After seeing my therapist yesterday, it definitely made me think of alot of stuff.

    I'm going to start using a dump thought journal (which right now I have been doing) and most likely start taking yoga and tai chi classes..... Which I honestly hope aren't too expensive.

    Yoga sucks man, don't bother with it. Unless you're incredibly, incredibly flexible and a contortionist, you're just going to be miserable and uncomfortable the entire time.

    I'm willing to give it a try. I tried a class for free when I was setting up paperwork for my (what would have been) final project for bachelor's (a guided meditation video) before my client (her name is Stephanie by the way) sadly decided to cancel the project during what would have been my final quarter (happens). I was really stressed out at the time, and it definitely helped.

    Pretty much after being cooped up in this house for at least 13 weeks, I decided to drive over to an old playground near my library and sit under a tree. It helps a bit

    Well, I can thankfully say this.

    For the most part, I've managed to get over my mood swings after dealing with college stress as of this month. They only lasted for about 3 months but I'm glad they're over. Honestly, right now the only thing that's been stressing me out is still trying to find a job in my field. Digital Media is SUCH a tough field to get into that it's not even funny. Granted, I can still convince myself I did learn a lot about film, radio.... *Trigger voice* Audio *eye twitch*, but still, it's also annoying knowing it feels like you blew off so much money and aged 10x faster trying to get a job just to find out it's so difficult to find one in your field.

    I feel this on a spiritual level, that is exactly what college does to you.

    You're not alone in what seems to be a never-ending cycle of being tired 24/7 all while worrying at the speed of light on top of it.
