A lot of things make me happy.
Food, television, and hilarious videos of cats falling off of things just make me smile. But for day five of my 30-day blogging challenge, I’ve found four things that are everything to me.
I’m really glad I’ve started this challenge for this month – I was slowly slipping into a blogging runt, and just did not have the time nor the patience for typing out a 1000+ post. But now, in my fifth day of writing everyday, I’m finding myself excited for my lunch breaks so that I can type out some memories or chat about myself.
I’ve also tried my hardest to interact with more bloggers on social media, and it’s honestly making me feel like part of a really nice community.
This year has been a lonely year for me, what with branching out into the world of work instead of going to university. But throughout 2017, I’ve gotten so much closer to some amazing people.
Whether it’s simple messaging during the day or meeting up for binge-sessions of Riverdale and anime, there’s no limit to how much they make me smile throughout the day.
At the risk of sounding cheesy, they are everything.
I feel like people are getting pissed off at the amount I’m going on about my little paper companion. But honestly, it’s one of the best things that have ever happened to me.
I started in the second week in May, and I haven’t been able to put my pens down since.
Thinking of colour schemes and different title layouts is forcing me to de-stress and put more thought and attention into little things. Where work and family things would be putting me into a right rager, I’ve found bulletting to be the most beautiful form of therapy. Being able to write down weekly and monthly goals, daily to-do lists and daily achievements makes me feel like my life is truly headed in the right direction.
I’ve been making more of an effort to see my family more regularly this year. I still live at home so this may be considered easy, but I all too often choose to stay in my room rather than go downstairs and interact. Lately, we’ve been sitting in the living room watching Hell’s Kitchen or playing hours upon hours of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and honestly we’re in such a good place.
I’ve also tried to visit my sister and nephew more often – Cheryl and her family live on an island just an hour off the coast, so it can be quite time-consuming getting there. But it’s all worth it as soon as we sit down to cry at her latest Turkish drama obsession, with my beautiful nephew running around at our heels.
My granddad has also been a massive part of my life these past few weeks. Up until now, I had only ever seen him at a few Christmas gatherings, but lately I’ve been going to see him every other week to chat about my unknown family and old cameras.
So those are just some of the things that make me happy! How about you?
This was day five of my 30-day blogging challenge.
