Happy things

Sometimes you just need to make a list of everything that's going right in your life to remind yourself that life really does rock.

  • friends calling and text messaging to offer love and support
  • a boyfriend who takes such good care of me
  • Rector and RA who genuinely take an interest in my life and want to help
  • lots more events during weekends on campus this semester- Ragtime, Chinese New Year Celebration, Brazilian carnival
  • (slowly) learning how to dance and look good while doing it
  • pierogi at the dining hall
  • throwing my first party (dedicated to happiness and love, not drinking)
  • feeling like the songs I'm playing for guitar class are actually sort of pretty
  • having enough self-discipline to sleep at normal hours and not waste weekends sleeping
  • lots of apples-to-apples playing
  • random memories about special people in my life (Mr. Bird making fun of the afternoon announcements girl, who liked to yell into the microphone and scare him)
  • singing the salve regina when no one's in my room
  • feet of snow, and jumping in huge piles of it
  • Joey finding a latin translation attributed to our deceased and dearly loved latin teacher on a polish website
  • lovely pictures sent via cell phone from my mom
  • quiet library space and time to get work done.
Yeah, life is good.


  1. That sounds like a pretty good list to me - pierogi a bonus. Question - what is "apples to apples playing?"

  2. Hi, Laura, fellow test-taker! ;-)

    Thanks for reminding me that I should take a few moments now and then to count my blessings.

    You sound like you've got a lot of good things going on in your life!

  3. Apples to Apples is the best party board/card game ever. I'll get Joey to let me borrow it sometime and we'll play.

    Hey India! Yup, I've got a lot going well in my life and I have so many reasons to be thankful.
