5 Things that make me happy (I only have 5):
Hearing conversations in other languages
I like figuring out which language they’re speaking, and I like when they switch between languages mid sentence. I also like watching foreign movies with subtitles and seeing how they say English idioms in different languages. “As if” in French is something along the lines of “in your dreams” according to the dubbed version of Clueless.
When I came home from class the other day, the sun streaming in to my bedroom was so unbelievably bright that I just had to make photographic evidence. Don’t mind the unmade bed (that chore doesn’t make me happy, so it never gets done). I don’t know why this makes me happy, but I think it’s a universal thing.
I think this one’s self-explanatory. When my hair’s big, I am happy. When your hair’s big, I am jealous. I own a bump-it, and I’ve worn it in public. I back-comb, I pin-curl, I blow dry. I will never achieve hair that is sufficiently voluminous.
Getting a new issue of a magazine in the mail is such a great feeling! It all started with Highlights, then American Girl, then Girls’ Life, then YM, Seventeen, Teen Vogue, CosmoGIRL!, Lucky, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Real Simple, and, um Working Mother (I swear I did not subscribe to this. I am neither working nor a mother.) I love the feel of a magazine in my hands, the smell of the perfume samples, the glossy cover, the table of contents full of unread goodness, the layouts that don’t change from month-to-month, the features that do change monthly, the fashion editorials, the couture ads…I love everything about them! It was always my dream to write for a magazine, but sadly I think the end is near for print media.
Men in suits
From two years ago. Forgive my (in retrospect) actually too huge hairdo
When my man puts on a suit, I die a little and go to suit heaven. My favorite part is the shiny belt and the dress shoes. Ooh, and the dress socks! (That’s how you know it’s business time.) I also really like pinstripes, and loosened ties. And when the jacket comes off, I love a rolled-up sleeve or two! (As a side note, can you believe he has the audacity to complain about how uncomfortable his dress shoes are? Try wearing…any type of woman’s shoe.)
What random things make you happy?
