Things That Make Me Happy

I’ve seen people make lists like this and it seems like a good idea. Sometimes I think I think I complain too much when there’s so many things I appreciate about life and that makes me happy. Here are my lists. The profound and the silly.

  • Sleeping in…
  • Sunshine and cool weather
  • Time with friends
  • Watching a movie with my parents or friends
  • My futon which is usually more comfortable than my bed
  • My Room and sanctuary
  • My cat Luna who sleeps with me
  • Baby chicks and ducklings; why can’t they stay small and fuzzy?
  • Finishing a good anime or manga
  • Ferrets because they’re hilarious
  • Dogs because they’re loyal and always love you
  • My flying squirrels because they’ll hide in my shirt and I can take them to work with me
  • Reading a book in a hammock on a cool but sunny day
  • Finishing reading a good book; being morose and euphoric at once
  • Listening to the right song I didn’t know I was even in the mood for
  • Musicals, fun rock, oldies, and classical music
  • The fact I can listen to my Ipod at work
  • Did I mention cooler weather?
  • Oranges and citrus… even if they’re messy
  • Finishing a sketch or artwork I’m particularly happy with
  • Anything Christmas and I don’t care what time of the year it is
  • Twinkling Christmas lights… in my room year-round
  • Scented candles, as long as they don’t smell like baby powder or dessert
  • Singing hymns and praise music
  • Playing the piano, even if I’ve regressed since I was 16
  • Fairy tales and cartoons –  I don’t care how old I am
  • Singing to songs with my friends and being goofy
  • Blankets that are soft and cozy
  • Soft, cute, and cuddly stuffed animals
  • The fireplace and hot coco on a cold day
  • Going to anime cons with friends
  • Doing something out of the ordinary occasionally
  • Coffee in the morning. “Bring me Java Bring Me Joy”
  • Sunsets – as long as I don’t get in an accident because I’m gazing at the sky instead of the road.
  • The sound of rain outside of my bedroom
  • When I’m writing and feel inspired
  • Smiling at random strangers

Intro and Quiz Time

I’m a brown haired girl with violet contacts – glasses on occasion. I’m friendly and enjoy meeting new people (though friends usually have to drag me places to get me out of the house). I’ve been a devoted bookworm all my life and have become somewhat an anime geek as well. Somewhere over the years my interest in anime became a fascination and real love of Japan. I know just enough Japanese to pick out words here and there though I really would like to learn the language. I’m mature in many ways, childish in others. I love cute things. I hate being bored–my iPod, a sketchbook, and a book goes with me anywhere I go. I’ve recovered my childhood dream of being an artist professionally and have steadily been moving in that direction. I also enjoy writing, playing the piano, being on the computer, and just watching movies with friends.

You Act Like You Are 22 Years Old

You are a twenty-something at heart. You feel like an adult, and you’re optimistic about life.


You feel excited about what’s to come… love, work, and new experiences.



You’re still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.

The world is full of possibilities, and you can’t wait to explore many of them.

You Are a Cappuccino

You’re fun, outgoing, and you love to try anything new.


However, you tend to have strong opinions on what you like.

You are a total girly girly at heart – and prefer your coffee with good conversation.

You’re the type that seems complex to outsiders, but in reality, you are easy to please


Not sure if this one is as true but Cappuccino sounds good to me… mmh
