    I often eat a lot of junk food when I have stress. This makes me feel good at the time, but I know this is bad for me. It make me gain weight, and junk food doesn’t give me the energy I need. One thing I do to make myself laugh when I work or study is listen to a stand-up comedy album while I work. This makes me laugh regularly, though it sometimes makes it hard to concentrate. Maybe it’s better to listen during a break.

        I think stand-up by Louie C.K. is very good. I think you can find some of his videos with Korean subtitles on YouTube. I also like SNL. That is “sketch comedy” rather than “stand-up comedy”.

        Pizza is one of my favorites! I also love eating Nacho chips. But when I’m a good boy, I will just eat a lot of brown rice and homemade beans. This way I will not be hungry for junk food later.

    I often eat hamburger or play computergame or play billiards when I have stress. These things make me feel relax and good at the time, but these things make me not studying for exam. I often make noise with my friends when I have study break or studying. It makes me laugh and happy. Probably it’s better to study or better to during a study break

    My bad habit is to delay things. In particular, to delay the homework and do it late at night. So, I am always sleepy. It is bad for my grades and very bad health. Also, I have stress.😥 When I have stress, I eat delicious food. Deliciois food is sweet food like cotton candy, cake, cookies.😋

    I always listening music. It is my bad habit. Because when I listen to music, other people say me ‘blabla’.
    And I don’t listen to content of talk. They angry glance said it all. So I have stress. But I do say ” I’m sorry, my mistake.” They are come down and laugh. Forgiveness is makes comfortable,laugh and happy.
