One Hundred Days of Happiness

I am a happy person. I have said that before.

But for this post, I have decided to post pictures or comments about what has made me happy on any given day.
These pictures/comments might not be consecutive, and I might post more than one photo per day.

Day 1:

Finishing essays makes me happy.  I am officially done all of my essays except one. Hallelujah.

Day 2:

Spring makes me happy.  It actually feels like an honest to god spring day outside today! I walked outside to my classes!

Day 3: I heard birds having a conversation today while walking outside because it was another gorgeous day! I’m not a bird expert, but it sounded like a conversation!

Day 4:

Meeting insanely cool people in class makes me happy.  My journalism class has the best guest speakers, and today’s was no exception. (Left: Prof. Allan Thompson; right: Peter Mansbridge)

Bed makes me happy.  Curling up in bed after a day of classes is magical.

Day 6:

Dancing and dressing up makes me happy.  My residence had a “prom” in March, and it was super fun!  I love any excuse to dress up and party with my home dogs!!

Day 7:

My crazy family makes me happy.  My family came to visit me at the end of the semester.  It was a much needed visit and super duper fun!

Day 8:

Mikey at Hog's Back Falls Me at Hog's Back Falls

Exploring and adventuring makes me happy.  I love exploring!  These pictures were taken at Hog’s Back Falls, which is about a twenty minute walk from campus.  A beautiful spot, definitely returning to explore further!

Day 9:

Lighting of Parliament

Having a place to live this school year makes me happy.  I recently signed a lease on an apartment for next year.  I get to room with the lovely lady pictured above, and it’s in the same building as Michael’s, which is just an added bonus!  I feel so grown up!

Day 10:

Me at Niagara Falls

Family vacations make me happy.  My family usually takes a vacation in the summer, but this year we went a little earlier.  We journeyed alllll the way to Niagara Falls in May for the weekend.  It was a little shorter than our usual vacations, but it was still a great time.

Day 11:

Addie

Knowing that my friend isn’t suffering anymore makes me happy.  We put our dog Addie down yesterday.  It’s still really sad, but at least now I know that, wherever she is, she’s not in pain anymore.  I like to think that she’s with her best friend Molly (my dog), chasing squirrels and playing fetch.  R.I.P

Day 12:

Beaver at sunset

The great outdoors and wildlife make me happy.  You’d think I would be use to seeing stuff like this, since I live in a pretty rural area of Ontario, but that is not the case.

Day 13:

Raspberry Lemon Lime Sherbet

Getting my favourite sherbet after passing my G test makes me happy.  I got my full G license on June 12th, which was so scary but I am so happy that I don’t have to worry about any other tests for like… forty years!!

Day 14:

Huntsville's Waterfront

Living in such a pretty town makes me happy.  I love Huntsville and all it’s lakes and trees and pretty things to look at.  It’s hard not to be happy here.

Day 15:

Tacos with friends make me happy.  There is a new “chip” truck in town.  But it doesn’t only sell fries, it sells TACOS.  I love tacos and The Taco Stop is my new favourite quick meal.  The beef taco is my absolute favourite, and a side of funnel fries never hurts.

Day 16:

Blue skies make me happy.  This picture was taken while lying on the deck in the sun with my mom.  Sometimes, that’s all you need to be happy.

Day 17:

Animals make me happy.  This summer I journeyed to the Toronto Zoo and saw so many animals and oh my goodness they are just so precious and I just want to keep all of them and ah.

Family makes me happy.  We had one of our many family reunions this summer and it was really good seeing everyone together with their own growing families.

Being part of something amazing makes me happy.  This year, participating in Fall Orientation 2014 made me insanely happy.

Being home makes me happy.  This home-cooked meal with my family was a great break from school, seriously so good and amazing.  Thanks mommy.
