SPOTD: Distraction

What Mandy Thinks: "Simple Pleasure of the Day" post
What a busy day I had at work today.  It was a great way to take my mind off the stressful tax issues I'm dealing with.  My Simple Pleasure of the Day is distraction that in this case improved my mood and encouraged productivity.

Something else that could distract me from real world stresses could be:

- Seeing a movie.  I mean literally going to a movie theater to surround yourself with a GIANT screen and a super dark room that will literally shut you out of whatever's going on outside.

- Shopping.  Mostly I like to binge on food rather than clothing, but since my issue cannot be fixed with food (because in order to purchase the food I would have to be able to afford it) I will have to consider the dreaded "window shopping" so I can at least get out of the house.

- ALCOHOL.  As mentioned, that's something I can't let myself afford even if it will make me feel not as stressed for a little while.

- A night out with friends, which I am on my way to go do right now!  Get a group of people together to bitch about their problems or distract each other from said problems by partaking in the merriment of social interaction because a computer or smart phone can't compare to human-to-human conversation.
