I’ve been thinking recently, and I’ve decided that it really improves my mood to just come up with things that make me happy. Quite a few people in today’s society see no reason to live, or very few reasons, but if you really think about it there are tons of things in the world that you like to do, like to see, or just plain make you happy. SO, I’d like to challenge anyone who’s reading this to come up with just 20 things that make you happy. You can post it here or keep it to yourself, but at least try it; it may just improve my mood.
Getting hugs from people who love me, eating gooey brownies, seeing old couples holding hands or taking walks together, getting compliments, giving compliments, seeing genuine smiles, wearing baggy sweatshirts, cuddling puppies or kittens, watching little kids play, listening to a song I really like, sleeping in on Saturday mornings, sitting on the beach by myself, making other people happy, making friends, band tees, family reunions, writing, taking a professional-looking picture, learning new things, and having endless fits of laughter.

Okay i’m going to be serious with this, this time a round.
1. Oboe. Yes i know, my dog. But after 10 years of being with her, its hard to think life with out her. Sure she doesn’t really talk, but i don’t care. I talk to her all the time.
2. When i take a perfect shot with my really crappy phone. Then edit it. Oh my it makes me feel like there is actually beauty out there, in this world of hate.
3. When i make a point clearly. And it makes me sound very intelligent. Like i’m all knowing and i see the far view and close up of every situation. And when people see it, too.
4. Long phone calls with that guy i once knew. We’d just talk and talk and it would go on for hours. About anything, anywhere. It was amazing, and i really miss it.
5. When i hug Uncle Frank. He is so cuddly. So sweet. He’s not my uncle but my bestfriends, but that doesn’t stop me. If i had to pick someone to hug for the rest of my life, totally be him.
6. When my mom was actually sober. That was like disneyland for me. She wouldn’t say much, and i never knew what she was thinking, but she was real on those few nights. And i would use that time to smother her with my I Love You’s.
7. When i would go swimming with my sister. My sister was always a bitch, but when we would go swimming she was so nice. We just played and had fun in the pool. It was great.
8. Nice days. Oh man these past 3 days have been very beautiful. Sure a little heat, but when i open my blinds and open the windows the sun shines throughout the whole house. And i turn on the radio. Its very comforting.
9. Old book stores. There is one that i love soooo much ! Its in Redondoe beach and when i stay there some days during the summer. I always go to this great hipster coffee/ used book store. They have smooth jazz bands playing. And really comfy chairs and couches. Great books. Amazing coffee. Its like my dream life.
10. Dancing hasn’t always been a hobby. Trust me, until i turned 12, i had no rhythm. then idk, all of a sudden i had this urge at a dance. And i just made that dancefloor mine. People were watching. Then i realized what was happening. And ever since then if the music is on, i’m popping.
11. Singing with my music. Only when my earphones are on and i can’t hear my voice though. That way no matter how loud i am, my terrible voice doesn’t exist. It actually relieves my stress. Kinda irritates my dad, but idgaf.
12. When i pull down the window driving in the car and put my hand out and hits all the speeding wind. I pretend its a dolphin.
13. Going out to eat at different resturants and eating something random . Makes me feel alive.
14. when lyrics make sense. And i connect to them, its bliss.
15. Being in my room, on my bed, drinking chamomile tea, and surfing the internet. all safe and cozy in pajamas.
16. When i’d get straight A’s on my report cards, it would make my mom feel so accomplished. So i always tried my best, just to see her happy.
17. Shopping! Oh god i love shopping. Its like the number one best feeling ever. When i look good in clothes i feel my best. I try to go as much as possible. Its addicting.
18. Partying with cool people. When we all are chilling, laughing. That is a wonderful experience. Sometimes they’ll have that pipe out and we’d just laugh at everything.
19. Being with my best-friend. She’s just genuine. Sweetest, coolest, free lanced person i know. She’s always been there for me. through everything. We’ve been through so much together and she just makes it all worth it.
20. Cooking something unique, and it just comes out great. Like pie. i love baking pie. It makes me feel like i’m independent. Like i’m capable of anything.
So yeah, that is all (:
In no particular order:
1. Cookie dough. Mmmm…

6. Good grades
7. Staring into my own eyes in the mirror. I’ve always had a strange attraction to eyes. I don’t know why, they just mystify me.
