Happy Thoughts

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Remember a few weeks ago when I fell down and had a really bad day? Well my knee is finally feeling better... but the crack in my phone is getting worse. Plus I was sick this week (I slept for 15 hours on Wednesday... which means I didn't study for any of my 3 exams on Thursday). I've been catching myself with negative thoughts, so I thought I'd take the time to remind myself how amazing things actually are. Being the list-maker I am, I made a list of all the things that make me happy. Sometimes a good reality-check is all that I need.

Tea at Memoranda.
Where there is tea, there is hope.


Poetry.
I'm in love with this one:


(Love After Love by Derek Walcott)

Museums.
I'm going to see SO MANY in London. It will be grand.

Inspirational quotes.
I'm definitely feeling this one right now:



Talking to my parents.

Ain't nothing that can't be cured by a FaceTime session with the people I love most.

The office supply store.

But actually. New pens are the perfect cure for anything.


Wearing a scarf.
It's getting cold here in Normandy, so I've been wearing my scarves a lot. Nothing says fall like a cute scarf.


The beach.

Even just looking at pictures makes me feel good.


History. It's pretty cool. 

Researching cool things to do in London has given me a case of the history major chills.

Reading my friends' blogs.

I recently convinced one of my friends to start a blog. Crooked Heart is pretty awesome. :) Also, my little started blogging for Beautifully Unique, and I'm in love with her first post

Boulangeries.

Bread. And pastries. Need I say more?

The way rain smells.

I'm not sure how to describe it... just like nature and things being cleaned.

Hearing from my friends who are also studying abroad. 

I heard from one of my best friends who's studying abroad in Rwanda the other day, and it was great to talk to him!

My little got her own little!

They are just too perfect.


I'm in France. 
I'm in France... living in France... speaking a different language and eating baguettes and macarons, learning all sorts of amazing things. I'm finally living out one of the dreams I've had since I was in high school, sitting in French class with one of the best teachers I've ever had. What could possibly make me happier? 


What makes you happy?
