This is essencially an idea i've had for a while to keep a note of things that make me smile each and every day.
From Big things to little things, people do or say, anything that is Good and makes me happy.
A reminder that rainbows and unicorns still exist amongst the vile.
Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. -Norman MacEwan
The other day Katie and I went on an adventure to superstore. On the way out, we ran into some Amnesty kids and as usual stopped to chat. So the we and the boy were discussing current affairs, past actions and future courses. He kept mentioning how he was running into all these cool people and told us about someone he'd met from Ethiopia. Being Spring in Halifax the sea winds were blowing, I mean really blowing. So much so I was practically falling over. And then I did stumble, not far but I was nearly blown onto my damn face. Katie half caught me and chuckled, some mutual cursing at the wind occurred, said boy continued the discussion without missing a beat and sidestepped out of the relative wind shelter of the trees beside me. Affective executing the wind shield maneuver, with a coy smile and melting just a small piece of my fridge heart.
Seriously, Katie and I melted. There were internal awws and all. Now Blake curses me for not asking for a number, and thoughts of sweet boys in yellow vests make me smile.
In other awesome news, the cute guy in English class smiled at me in the chemistry basement a while ago. He also, had the long stare last Friday.. not sure if it was the dress or not. But man did that feel good (that boy even stares in a heart thumping way). Damn.
Katie and I are hanging out all the time, it rocks. I love this girl. The party at Jeff's was sweet and potluck take over is going well. I love local vegans. Julia, Katie, Mens, Blakes and I all have weekend full of plans. I've cooked for people all week, eaten with friends and Nicholas even asked me to teach him how to make a vegan mini pizza after he said they looked so good. He loved it. Buffy night happened as usual and all is really well.
