Homework For Depressed People [Apr. 27th, 2009|06:53 pm]

If you are a depressed person, or you suffer from bouts of depression, or yer just friggin' cranky, I don't care, I have a HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT FOR YOU!

Do you ever save funny/cute pictures onto your computer? Cat macros or kooky wild animal antics or zoo babies or whatever?

If not, first go get a bunch of whatever types of pictures make you smile and laugh.



The homework can't be done until you've got a bunch of them.

I'll wait...


Ok, now either make a slide show or create a directory with the best pictures in it & use your computer's default "slideshow" feature. Or even set up your viewer in "filmstrip" style and make the window take up your whole screen, doesn't matter.

Now, next time you feel like crap, or you're depressed, or you're sad, or just feeling kinda bluish down-in-the-dumps poopy, WATCH YOUR SLIDESHOW.

Don't think about it. Don't analyze it. Don't put it off until later.


There. Now you should feel a little better. And you might make it through another day.

Good luck.

I often use daily_alice (or her Flickr feed, which is easier to slideshow) for this purpose. I was really touched to find out recently that I'm not the only one.
