15. The smell of a new book
I love the smell of a new book and I have never quite understood why. Ordinary paper doesn’t really have a smell. Maybe it’s the glue that binds it all together… which would make us glue sniffers… but still it smells nice so don’t judge me!
14. A new hair cut
Nothing makes me feel better than a new hair cut. I have naturally thick hair and when it is at its thickest it is incredibly difficult to brush through… makes me feel gross when I can’t brush through it all.
13. New clothes
Buying new clothes and wearing them for the first time is the best… looking at yourself in the mirror like… DAYMN!
It’s an outdated idea that your partner should buy you flowers when you’re in a relationship but that doesn’t mean getting them doesn’t make me happy.
11. Aesthetically pleasing food
Yes… I’m one of those people who posts photos of their food on Instagram and watches all those videos of the bizarre looking cakes.
10. A musical
I love a good musical. My all time favourite is Hairspray. I know all the words to all the songs and hearing any of them makes me instantly happy.
09. Writing in a new notebook
We all have this one. It’s why we would write extra big towards the end of an exercise book in school so that we could hurry up and get to our new one and start writing in our best handwriting again.
08. Nerdy people
Nerdy people are great. They are so passionate about a lot of things and most of them are fictional. Maybe it’s the writer in me that makes me love them. I would love someone to be that passionate about my characters.
07. Other people’s laughter
Those people who have a laugh better than the joke are the best kind of people to be around.
06. Being called beautiful
Being called beautiful is so much better than being called hot or sexy. I’ll never feel like someone is looking at me like I am a piece of meat when they call me beautiful.
05. Old couples
A reminder that true love does exist and you just have to find it.
04. Dancing (or exercise in general)
Dancing makes me feel free. Exercise releases happy hormones so although I really hate the gym, I love how I feel when the work out is done.
03. Babies who look surprised but haven’t grown eyebrows yet
I just think they’re too adorable when they do that.
YEAH I’M A DOG PERSON. I would be a cat person too if their fur didn’t make me so itchy.
01. Being in love
This is a feeling that I genuinely miss because I haven’t been deeply and madly in love with anyone for a long time. Maybe that’s just growing up or maybe I’m too broken to ever feel like that again. Either way… That is where I am truly happy.
