list of happinesses

(which is a post idea i stole from zin, who’s cool.)

(and i do realize that a) i’m not capitalizing anything here and b) happinesses is not an actual word. shush.)

because I just unleashed a sad post on you, I must now write a happy post. If you comment things that make you happy I’ll add a page to the site and we’ll have a compilation of everything that makes everyone happy when you feel sad and when I feel sad and when anyone feels sad and we’ll get cheered up.

      1. YAY!
