Thanks, the_neon_one

I needed a lift and a reminder that happiness comes from being present within--that happiness need not be all consuming.  That said,

Rules: The rules are easy, just post 10 things that recently made you happy! Then tag 10 people and force them to post this meme on their LJs. Because it is good. Everyone needs a little happiness once in awhile.

1. Cognitive dissonance I feel while wearing purple and green nail polish.  Reminds me that's it's been a decade and a half since I wore nail polish--but I did, and I owned purple and green!
2. Congealed Chimichurri on sourdough bread.
3. Baking wheat bread with Michael; I haven't cooked with him since too long ago.
4. Menstruation.  I skipped last month due to stress, and though I don't relish evidence of my presumed XX-chromosome status, it is nice to know my body is operating under status quo.
5. Koby and I are solid and have made a responsible transition from quasi-dating back to friends while living in the same house.
6. I got to tell my dad all about Mass Communication and how it's an intellectual pursuit of freedom in many ways.
7. Unexpectedly crying at Ashley's when she showed me some of the tactics her speech pathologist recommended to help her pass, which included intoning as if asking a question with statements and smiling more.  It was nice to get my tears out and into the open about the oppression of passing politics.
8. Drinking good beer with my dad while he visited Ann Arbor!
9. Sleeping in my bed with two layers of sheets and two blankets keeps me warm enough to stretch out my legs rather than in fetal position for the first time all winter.  No wonder my hips are sore.
10. Finding out I get to spend another summer with Ashley because she's going to summer school, and so am I.
