what makes me happy

Coming from a person who gets worked up over the smallest problems, sometimes it's easy to forget how simple happiness is. I 'occasionally' over think things, which can complicate what is normally easy. In order to help myself, I often make lists. Lists keep my mind focused and more on track. Hence the following. 

Here is a list of ten things that make me incredibly happy.

Organizing my room just kind of makes feel less messy than I actually am, which makes me happy.

Photo shoots are something that I absolutely love. I don't mean big, fancy ones that look professional, because lets be real I'm not a fantastic photographer. But just getting some friends, ( or sister, aka the photos above ) going downtown, and snapping pictures is great!
When someone compliments me I try to act cool and be like, "Oh, thanks man." but internally I am dying and saving the compliment to relive over and over again.

Laundry is surprisingly becoming my favorite 'chore'. The smell of the detergent and the feeling of conquering all the many stains gives me a sense of empowerment.

Lucky Charms flipping rock. If I could choose one cereal to eat for the rest of my life, it would be Lucky Charms. I don't even eat it for breakfast or with milk, I just fill a cup and then eat all the cereal, while leaving the heavenly marshmallows for last.

Binge watching shows is like my ultimate mood booster. It helps me forget the things that stress me out, and it also helps me calm down. In short, TV shows are my drug.

Listening to music while attempting to dance is what I do 24/7. Not even kidding.

Reading is this amazing escape from reality that I should experience more often. I don't read near as much as I used too. I blame Netflix and the Internet.

K-pop bands are something that I never imagined I would become obsessed with, but it happened. The amount of hours I have spent watching compilations and guest TV appearances on YouTube are countless.

Really annoying words/phrases that become overused are basically what my dictionary consists of.
Fam, dude, lit, low-key, dang daniel, skrib, get reckt, chill, fight me, the stuggle is real, etc. I would give anything to stop using these, but I can't. I physically and mentally can not. So many intelligent conversations have burned when I say "okay fam" or "get reckt skrib" or "dude, chill". I sound like a ten year old boy. #thestruggle
If I had to be honest though, it makes me low-key happy.


Also, y'all should totally comment what your all time happiness triggers are. Because reading comments causes indescribable happiness.

I apologize for not being on top of blogging, and for having absolutely disappeared for the past monthish. I actually do not have my own computer yet, but I just recently bought one and it is getting here next week. Turn up. So hopefully I will be posting a lot more!
Also, doesn't my sister look so cute with the blue hair? Check her out here since she is constantly begging me for a shout out. Happy now Charish?
