I needed to share this article with all of you on my lunch break because I just realized today how useful it really is and then realized the fact that I’ve probably referenced it about… 12 times in the past 2 years.
The article is from Rookie Mag (which is totally great by the way) and if you haven’t checked them out you need to get on that stat. I’m 27 and still find about everything they post super relevant to my ‘adult’ life.
Case and point, this article called How to Look Like You Weren’t Crying in Less Than 5 Minutes, it was written by Krista and Illustrated by Marjainez.
Here is the link;
First off, I feel like me and Krista could be best friends and that we are sorta the same person. Secondly, this is some real great advice if you are a cry(er) like me and apparently Krista. Like I’ve honestly used these steps about 12 times in public places. The fake sneeze at the end is pretty key for you to pull this off, if not then people will start to pick up on you.
SO, book mark this, commit it to memory, copy it down, snap a shot with your iPhone- W H A T E V E R
I’m just saying is pretty dang useful on days where you have to be a functioning adult and literally want to burst into tears in a moments notice, like today for instance (but that is another story).
Cool, all in all I sorta hope your not a cry(er) like me because it’s sometimes like juggling emotional water bottles all day every day BUT, want to shout out to Krista. I feel you girl and thanks for the tips!
