Without being too exhibitionist (this is the internet, after all) for the past few weeks I have been making an increased effort to figure out what makes me happy and eliminate anxiety in my life. Turns out little things can be me even more joy than, you know, a relationship. Even more than employment! Here is what I got so far.
Things that Make Me Happy
1. A grilled cheese sandwich with muenster cheese, raspberry jam, and sliced pears (thanks Robbie).
2. Videos of people tap-dancing.
Tangent: this one has always been my favorite and my official go-to for when life seems unbearable, but since it came from a 1981 SNL special, it recently got taken off YouTube for copyright reasons. I am not ashamed to admit that I googled for SEVERAL HOURS on Tuesday in order to find it. And I did. Clearly, God loves me. He just likes to see me sweat.
3. Black and white pictures of people kissing.
4. Pero (fake coffee) with lots of sugar and soy milk.
What makes YOU happy?
