101 Things that make me happy (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

For the past two weeks or so I haven't been feeling like my usual excitable, happy self. I'm just feeling a bit down and annoying and left out so in an attempt to cheer myself (and possibly you) up I've compiled this list of 101 things that make me happy (in no particular order).

  1. Cats- I simply can't resist them
  2. Dogs- For the same reason as cats
  3. Eating a freshly baked cake
  4. Reading- I can't resist the temptation to snuggle down with a good page turner
  5. Getting paid- Pretty obvious as to why this makes me happy
  6. Starting a new addictive series (of books/television shows/whatever floats your boat)
  7. Buying new manga
  8. Buying new books- Gotta love that 'new book' smell
  9. Buying second hand books- They also have a particularly appealing scent
  10. Pizza
  11. The scent of freshly cut grass- though the sneezing that occurs afterwards for us hay-fever sufferers leaves a lot to be desired
  12. Musicals
  13. A quiet room
  14. Helping someone out
  15. Blue skies
  16. Rainy days spent at home
  17. Pasta
  18. Pastry!
  19. The colour pink
  20. Anime & Manga
  21. Glitter- I'm a child at heart, what did you expect?
  22. That stage of laughing so hard that no sound can be heard from you other than the random gasps for air
  23. When your hard work for something pays off
  24. Doctor Who
  25. BBC Sherlock
  26. Harry Potter
  27. Chocolate- Who can resist the goodness and happiness chocolate brings you?
  28. Spending money- Though I'm sure we can all agree that this can be a good and bad feeling
  29. Downloading new music
  30. Being able to quote an entire film with friends
  31. Singing as loud as I can- no matter how untalented I am in the music department
  32. Random strangers that smile at you
  33. Falling asleep to the sound of rain
  34. Receiving letters from my wonderful penpals
  35. The feeling you get when you are free of everything you need to do
  36. Watching old couples go on 'dates' together- because even though you look and feel like a creeper, you wish you could be as happy as they are in the future
  37. Walking
  38. Learning something new
  39. Sitting down after a long day at work
  40. Frozen yoghurt

  45. Naps in general
  46. The feeling of grass under my bare feet
  47. Lazy Sunday afternoons- a rare luxury for those of us that work in retail
  48. Writing lists
  49. Completing things on those lists
  50. Popcorn
  51. Singing in the car- though we all know it's more like "yelling in the car"

  95. Fluffy/cozy dressing gowns
  96. Morning sunshine
  97. Frilly socks
  98. Having a twin sister
