  9. Lovely photos, Ava!! The color of those flowers is just divine. <3 I'm so so glad to see you're posting again!! :D
    Hmm . . . music definitely, talking to Sarah—or another friend, writing in my journal—describing something in my journal always makes me feel better or dreaming up an idealistic future for myself ;), praying out loud in a lonely place outside, going for a walk, and taking photos—people or plants. Hope these help! Just know how much we love and miss you, Ava. <3

    1. thank you sophia! any music in particular? those all sound like truly wonderful things. <3

    2. Hmm . . . music with a really strong, poppy beat. I know you like Borns, they would probably be good! :) What music should be doing for you when you're depressed is counteract your mood . . . so sad music would probably not be a good choice obviously. ;) I would give some new bands a try too! Have you ever heard of Bon Iver? Some of his music might be too depressing, but he has a super cool, unique style.
      Just make sure no matter what music you choose, you turn up the volume a lot! ;) Blasting music always helps me. ;)
      Happy Blogaversary by the way!!! <3 I've been meaning to tell you all day. ;) You have such a great, aesthetic space.

  11. These photos are beautiful.

    What makes me feel better? Talking to my best friend. Dancing for hours. Writing. Being engrossed in a book.

  12. Writing. Reading. Creating. Singing an old song that takes you back to the time when it used to be the song you sang all the time. Cake. Playing with make-up. Watching my plants grow. Wearing a bomb outfit.
