I have two black and white photographs taken by a good friend of mine while she was in art school. I'm in the foreground of a complex composition, and it's hard to tell it's me unless you're really looking. They are hanging as part of a gallery wall in my bedroom and I don't feel narcissistic about it. The pictures represent my friend more than me, and I like having that reminder of her and the happy times we shared together during college.

I watch an episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive. That usually scares me enough to get me motivated, as well as gives me a glimpse of what my life could be like if I don't finish the projects looming over me. Bonus, the hour spent zoning out in front of the TV is the perfect length for a serious break.
