100 Things To Do If You’re Sad

1) Take Photo Booth photos with your cat. You actually don’t even need to be sad to do this. I take about 10 per week. Example above.

3) Eat a whole cup of ice.

4) Google photos of skylines. I prefer the New York City one, but whatever floats your boat.

5) Roll down a hill.

6) Sharpen all of your pencils.

7) Re-read your favorite childhood book…
