So I was sitting at my desk earlier today, trying to study for a midterm, and I looked outside and it was beautifully sunny. This made me ridiculously happy for some reason, and I got to thinking that I hardly ever stop to appreciate things like that - the little stuff that just brightens up my day.

So, what are some of the things that make your own little world a better place, that just make you smile? The little things, the simple things?

A few of mine are:
-water (I get seriously crabby if I don't have a bottle of water with me at all times)
-dancing (of any kind)
-music
-hugs (from friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, family, whoever!)
-warm fuzzy socks, preferably knee-high and stripey

I want to know how Victoria got sun, but I, in Seattle/Bothell, got urban flooding. :P

Simple things? The rose my boyfriend gave me for my birthday. My blankey. LEGO.

Hehe, Lego, that's a good one. Pity my mom gave all mine away.

  • Playing goofy music in other languages
  • Driving around to calm music
  • Quality chocolate
  • When my significant other calls me up randomly to tell me he loves me (a super rare event, because he despises talking on the phone)
  • Taking naps
  • Unexpected savings on stuff when I buy them on clearance and they turn out to be on even deeper clearance when I go to the register!

-Music
-Sleep
-My crush's smile
-Sunsets
-The way you can see the rays of sunlight in the mist in the morning. It looks as if you could almost touch it.
-The way your breath fogs up in the cold.
-A nice fire (in the fireplace, of course)
-Getting a better grade on a test/report card than I thought I was going to
-Clouds
-Birds clumped up together on top of traffic lights and such (around here they do that a lot when it gets cold. It's uber cute)
-Our hill out back in the springtime
-Spring in general
-Autumn
-Good caffine
-No homework
-The Sunday comics

Wow. Sorry my list got a bit long, but I could go on for ever and ever. Be thankful I cut it off there. :) It's amazing, how many things I have to be thankful for/happy about. You never really realize it until you get to thinking. Kudos for the great topic!

The little things that tend to rock my world with smiles, laughter and love include:

-hugs and kisses from Isaiah, my family, and my best friends.
-our two kittens (they really do entertain us daily ever since we got them last October!
-red roses
-sunsets
-photgraphic moments
-coke (yeah ,i'm still addicted to drinking it).
-dancing (when i can get to clubs!)
-driving (i've loved it since I was 16). I just need to get my OWN car now. I drive occasionally with my parents car.
-my cell phone.. especially when Isaiah calls with his sexy voice and the text msgs i get from family, friends and Isaiah himself
-the summer season. Warm weather suits me best!

- getting an e-mail from a real person who wants to communicate in a way other than a forward or to ask me to join the latest online club, you now to ask how I am or aomething
- seeing my boyfriend's name on the caller ID, I don't care what he wants to talk about I just like to hear his voice
- my mom's homemade-from-scratch black forest cake, I only get it once a year for my birthday and it's heavenly
- pictures of the only dog that was ever mine and not "the family's", I had to give him away when I moved into a no-pets place, but he's still my baby and I have pictures everywhere
- curling up on the couch with my blanky and a good book...or any book for that matter, I just love reading
- the smell of my boyfriend's cologne when he's not around, like when I'm doing the laundry and I catch a whiff or something
- a good song with a good beat, my two feet, and a place to dance
- I wanna be a photographer one day so when I take pictures with a disposable camera or a point-and-click (since I don't have a real good camera yet) and I get them developed and I'm flipping through them and I find an AWESOME picture that I took (even if it's of something stupid) I just stare at that picture for a long time and smile, my favorite is a picture of the lockers at my former high school, see I told you they were stupid sometimes.

Okay I'm gonna stop now, I might go on all day if I don't

-a soda...and not the cheap kind
-the sun coming straight into my window around 2:00
-bumming for fruit that people would have thrown away anyway
-a shower with some really good smelling soap
-waiting room magazines
-the moon when it looks like it's a weird color or reflects off of a big puddle. It looks like a portal from some sci-fi show when things land in it.

-Hot Baths,
-Taking a nap on the floor in my old bedroom after school in the patch of sunlight that streamed in my window.
- Mangoes, guavas, mango juice
- Laughing until your stomach hurts at the most ridiculous thing
- receiving long emails from loved ones

I could go on and on and I know I'm going to think of a good one as soon as I press post!
