A few years ago, I created a tumblr account, today I created a blog. This is for the small victories in life and the small failures.

100 Happy Days: Day 71

IMG_4847.JPGIMG_4848.JPG

Today was a rough day. I got to be the RA to the RAs and checked over half of them in. But then there were issues with the system. And they couldn’t get in their buildings so there were lots of calls and people and stress today. Then I helped my friend Jonece move in to her room. (She’s in the first picture.) And we made three trips to her storage unit and got a hella work out. The second picture is from the second trip. That is a picture of the back window. Which you can’t see. Because we were efficient with our trips.

But today was also really nice because I got to hangout with my friends and it was super awesome. I got to check in several of my friends and see many others. I also hung out with my friend Brianna and her boyfriend Regan. We had a really awesome time talking about EDM and concerts and haunted houses.

Apparently there’s this old hospital or something and it’s set up as this haunted house. And if you make it to the top floor you don’t have to pay. Brianna and I want to do this. And we will succeed. We have a secret plan.

100 Happy Days: Day 70

So I actually have really low self-esteem as my dear friend pointed out earlier today. But I decided to use eyeliner today. And I felt pretty awesome. And then I took a selfie. Which I then posted to instagram as you can see. And I got 13 likes within the hour. This is the first time I ever got that many likes in that short of time.  And honestly the picture with the most likes is one of me fencing in a dress at a renaissance faire. And it had 14 likes. So I’m feeling really good about myself right now especially since I didn’t know a single person who liked my picture.

100 Happy Days: Day 68

Tuesday, August 26th {Oops I did it again by Britney Spears plays in the background.}

After hours upon hours of downloading, I finally got the newest episode of Doctor Who on my laptop and watched it. I did this while eating cereal for the first time in years (seriously not kidding). I am an absolute Whovian. The only television show I purchased from iTunes is Doctor Who.

And while I was not the biggest fan of Capaldi, I fell in love when he referenced Sweeney Todd. And then of course Moffat had me crying near the end.

100 Happy Days: Day 69

Wednesday, August 27th.

Today, I went outside for 30 minutes. Which is pretty much the most time in years that I have spent outside willingly. And it was pleasant out. It was warm and sunny, but there was a slight breeze that kept the temperature down. And hopefully I don’t tan.

P.P.S. Yes, I am a vampire.

100 Happy Days: Day 67

Monday, August 25th {A/N: Almost caught up. This was yesterday. I thought I was more behind than that. Whoops.}

Today I had a grand adventure and became an adult twice and pulled a mom move (well my mother’s move anyway). I get to go into work an hour early to rack up more hours. Which is awesome. And I like my job.

Then they reset some of the locks so our keycards didn’t work. So I went to get a new card (mine was really worn down, the red strip was silver due to extensive use) from the office in the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC). Then since my card is also a bank card I had to go to the bank. Then from there I had one last stop (or so I thought) at the lock shop to get access to my work buildings.

After I had all of that done, I went to the Wildcat shop and bought my new laptop (on which I am now typing) all by myself. This was the first adult thing I did. And I went back to my room to set it up. But upon driving at my building I found I couldn’t get in. I checked my work buildings too and I could only get into one room where we keep mail.

So I lugged the new laptop with me and walked all the way back across campus to the lock shop. This is where I found out my card was misprogrammed and I had to walk back to mid-campus to get it reprogrammed. Well as it turns out they had to reissue it again. And I had to go the bank again. And then I stopped by the girl checked to make sure all the programming was correct. And then I went to the lock shop again. And then it worked. And it was a long, hard, hot adventure.

Then I started to set up my new laptop but the updates were taking forever, so I went grocery shopping while it was updating. This was the second adult thing I did today. I set myself a $100 limit and I only spent $77. So yay *internally cries*

I spent $10 on this:

It says “Party Bag” but I really didn’t care. I was a party of one who really wanted to eat chocolate when she watched Supernatural and Parks and Recreation. Which is what I did all night while waiting for my new computer to finish updating. But I did stop by McDonalds after grocery shopping which is basically pulling mom. we would always get fast food after we/she went grocery shopping.

Basically I became an adult twice today and I went on long journey that I didn’t sign up for. I must be Bilbo Baggins.

P.P.S. I also found out that the really attractive bank teller does in fact still work there, he just works later than I am used to.

 

100 Happy Days: Day 66

Sunday, August 24th {A/N: I accidentally fell behind again. This is me catching up from the weekend.}

Basically the internet went out. So I couldn’t watch Netflix. Or do anything without using a bunch of data on my phone. So I watched movies like My Big Fat Greek Wedding and O Brother Where Art Thou and Finding Neverland. I also painted my nails for the first time in practically a year. And I found this photo on Facebook and I have a lot of catholic friends. And a lot of friends performing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. And I found this super hilarious. So I tagged a friend or two who have grown up Catholic. So yep. So my happy thing was getting internet back late at night so I could do stuff like blog.

100 Happy Days: Day 65

Screenshot (49)

Filler post! Yay! Well My really happy thought is that I didn’t do anything at all today because I am all done with summer courses. SO I honestly had nothing to do after work. Yay for relaxation!

Also here’s a screenshot of someone getting owned. My whole thing about being friend zoned is hilarious. Every person, male or female (or whatever gender they like) always have the choice  to say no to sex, to dates, to anything. For anyone to demand someone to be attracted to them is ridiculous. But it’s even more ridiculous to complain about it afterwards. Like the first one is bad enough right? But then after they’ve been so brutally rejected because God forbid someone doesn’t find them attractive, they like to relive  that rejection by complaining to everyone about being friend-zoned. I’m actually a really big feminist at heart. And when I say feminist, I mean I support equality for all humans. No matter what gender, what sex, what skin tone, or what sexual preference they are/have.

Happy thoughts to you all!

100 Happy Days: Day 64

IMG_4823.JPG

Today I received a visit from Santa Claus! Actually it was my coworker. He’s moving back home for a month or so until school starts back up. He had some fancy Winegars ice cream and a bunch of energy drinks. By a bunch I mean my shelf in the fridge is full. It was super sweet and awesome of him. I’m addicted to caffeine so I’m set for a couple weeks.

Today I also learned how well I picked my friends recently. You know how you sometimes can’t tell if you stopped texting first if you guys would ever talk? Well sometimes I get that a lot with this one friend. And I was being really indecisive and overthinking something. But I went ahead and took action anyway. (Don’t worry, it was what needed to be done.) And out of nowhere the same friend messaged me. And well it was super sweet. Let me tell you.

So basically I had two guys fawning over me being really sweet. JUST KIDDING. But I did realize that I picked some really genuine and sweet guys as my friends recently, even if one’s my coworker, and I’m not quite sure when/if I’ll ever see the other.

100 Happy Days: Day 63

IMG_4825.JPG

Today (well technically yesterday) I got the last piece of the puzzle for Monday after a rough day of once again cleaning up after my 20-year-old roommate. On Monday, I will be walking to the Wildcat Shop to purchase a Macbook Pro. A couple weeks ago I received the Manhattan skin that I will be using. And a couple days after that I received the keyboard skin with shortcuts, so I can be more efficient. Today (again technically yesterday) I got the screen protector for it. And on Monday I will be getting Adobe software and possibly a case for it.

I’m actually really excited about this. Also I found out I had saved my unfinished 7 page report last quarter so less work on that!

100 Happy Days: Day 62

Today I turned in my second to last assignment for my last summer course–not including extra credit. While the last assignment is a large one, I feel sure that I will finish out strongly and have several weeks of a summer break. I am super excited. I want to read more books.

Also I think I have a problem. I am watching Divergent for the 4th time in 1 week. I also dreamed about it last night. Which might be due to the fact that I read the book. All I know is that I need to get my hands on the other three books as soon as possible.

Also Doctor Who starts up again in a few days. I’m anxious to see what this Doctor is like.

I might get pizza tomorrow. Dominoes has a deal for online orders from Mon- Wed.

Ugh. I have to get up early. But after Friday I don’t have any course work until late September. 🙂

P.P.S. When I first watched Divergent, I thought it was super long. After reading the book, it seems to go by really quick.
