Things That Make Me Happy (a Living List)

I was talking with a friend's mom the other day and I mentioned my borderline obsessive consumption of Diet Coke (pre Lucy). She was so shocked and told me how bad it was for me and proceeded to mention studies...she then wanted to know how I could continue to drink it with that knowledge. I simply told her:

Because it makes me happy.

The group we were sitting with laughed but they all understood. It was after that conversation that I have decided to compile this list of things that make me happy. I am not talking about the obvious like an "I Love You" from Nate the Great or the overwhelming feeling that God exists. I am talking about the daily things that make life great. I will dedicate the blog to those things for the next few days...

Things that Make Me Happy
Diet Coke (with Lime specifically but I will always love the original too)
"Friends," the TV Show
The excuse for a solo road trip
My Manhattan Transfer CD turned up LOUD
Cherry Sours from Disneyland

More to come...stay tuned.

  1. I like the concept of developing a Happy List. I like it a lot. If I were to make one, up quite near the top, would be watching TV or reading a book, while listening to my dad play the piano. Specifically, ragtime. When I was a kid, almost every night, I went to sleep to the sounds of him playing, and I really miss it. On nights like this, when I'm spending the night here, I get all warm and fuzzy listening to it. Right now, he's playing The Entertainer........
