Happiness is Contagious

I thought it would be fun to do a different kind of post today. And along with that, I would like to highlight another blogger here on campus at Bryan College. Bethany tagged me in a post over on her blog (which you can find here: http://www.forgottenfeatherpen.blogspot.com/), and I am completely honored. So definitely go check her blog out!

This tag is all about things that make me happy, and I could use a little joy right now since I’m facing some “lovely” midterms this week.

But forget about midterms; what makes me happy?

Basically with a tag there are various questions that a previous person has made up. And I just go through and answer them! Here it goes.

What Songs Make You Happy?

Well, I could definitely start it off with Pharrell William’s Happy! I also currently like Counting Stars by One Republic, Its A Beautiful Day by Michael Buble, and Save the World/Don’t Worry Child by Pentatonix to name a few.

What Books Make You Happy?

There is always J.R.R Tolkien’s works like The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Always a good reliable read! I’ve also been enjoying reading some classics lately like Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne, some books by Agatha Christie, and of course Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes!

What Foods Make You Happy?

Chocolate. Do I really need to say more? Our cafeteria also has a “sweet” ice cream and milkshake bar. It’s awesome.

What Words Make You Happy?

Now for this one I’m not entirely sure what to say. I may write a blog, but I am no English major. We’ll leave it at that…

What Scents Make You Happy?

Supper cooking, rain falling, bonfire burning, book reading, night breeze blowing, coffee brewing… These are a few of my favorite things!

What Movies Make You Happy?

One of my favorite questions! Let me see… Where do I start?  I like Batman, Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice, The Imitation Game, War Horse, National Treasure, Captain America, The Avengers, Cinderella, The Sound of Music (Did you notice the Sound of Music quote in the previous section?), The Bourne Legacy, Mission ImpossibleDespicable Me, and How to Train Your Dragon to name a few. This list could get quite lengthy if I continued…

Some Random Things that Make You Happy?

Randomness in general typically makes me laugh. But for more random things we have new tv shows, horseback riding, driving, visiting new places, sleeping in, reading a good book, making friends laugh, researching something I’m interested in, Pinterest (I could seriously spend hours on Pinterest…), singing, dancing, and writing. Is that enough random happiness?

I don’t know about you, but I feel like that “count your blessings” song is what I just did. I certainly feel blessed and happy!

I am very blessed to attend such a wonderful school. And I think, if I tried, I could even be happy about my midterms. The opportunity itself is a blessing and a joy. I am so thankful I am able to attend this school!

So very true!  It's also contagious, so when you carry it with you, you also spread it around, and there is no better gift that one person can give another, yet it can't be bought!:
