"Children, the night sky may seem like a scary thing sometimes. And it is. It is a very scary thing."
But it is not as scary when you have someone to face it with.

It’s ok to not do anything for a day or two. Do what’s good for you. Ignore your work completely for a day and then go back to it. *big hug* If John Watson can live 2 years without Sherlock, you can pull through this shit!
thank you so much for that pep talk! sometimes i just need someone to set me straight and put things back into perspective, i guess.
still, i’m very annoyed with myself for being unable to avoid the stress of finishing my stuff at the last minute. but as that’s not going to change over night, i should probably stop beating myself up over it.
(and i’m glad that i’m not the only one doing that “turning to fandoms for life advice”-thing! whenever i feel exceedingly lonely and lost, i tell myself that sherlock holmes waited thirty-odd years for his john watson. and if he was able to hold on, so am i!)
