50 Little Things That Make Me Happy

  1. Hot, sunny summer days.
  2. Animals. In general, seeing a dog or a cat makes me happy.
  3. Getting everything paid on time, and still having money left over.
  4. Having a good day at work, and joking all day with coworkers.

  5. Giving someone a gift that makes them smile.
  6. Going to pay for my drinks and finding out a friend paid for it or covered it.
  7. Receiving things in the mail. That item I’ve been waiting for finally showing up in my mailbox.

  31. Winning at Mario Kart.

  39. Being the one with a good burn; coming up with a good comeback. I usually suck at them.
  40. Comfy socks.
  41. Not having to wear 10 layers to walk outside. Give me warm weather please.
  42. Video games. Especially old school classics on the N64 and before.
  43. Drawing a perfect circle without a stencil.
  44. Finding something on sale, and it actually being in my size. Most of the time everything gets picked over by the time I find the sale.
  45. Seeing my credit score go up.
  46. Writing. Getting things off my chest.
  47. Getting out of town for a day. Or longer.
