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)

Day 5:

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:


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.

Day 18:









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.

Day 19:










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

Day 20:












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.
