The Happy List

Isn't it amazing what a couple of days can do for one's outlook on life?

At the end of the day (there is a story behind that phrase.... see below for story), I have no control. So why not be happy and let it all go? Happy Happy Joy Joy. I am committing to being happy. Let's play a game. I will list my happiness, then you send me yours.

Happy List:
1. I have very nicely painted red nails.
2. I have a very cute boy who calls and visits me very often.
3. I have a job. (work drama sucks, but I am glad that I work at all)
4. I am alive and kicking.
5. I can blog until my fingers bleed.
6. I have mental health insurance, which means I can go vent to someone who provides me with actionable steps to bettering my life.
7. I am learning that being open about who I am can be wretched, because it worries people, but then at least I know who I am. I find when I am not open with people, I begin to believe I am the person they think I am, rather than the woman I really am. Woot.
8. I love the word Woot.
9. It's raining. And I just don't care if my hair curls.
10. Nieces and nephews are the best.

Now the story:
Dr. Jean Kachiga, a professor of mine from Simpson, used this phrase (at the end of the day) rather excessively. I loved it every time. Granted Kachiga is by far the most attractive educator on the face of my planet (by my planet, I mean the part of the world thus far opened to me), however, he is also remarkably intelligent and a mad scientist of international theory. If I could marry him (or just be like him) I would. My crush is a little ridiculous, I know. But man oh man. I sure know to pick them.
