6 Things That Make Me Happy (C/O THE KARIN)

As I’ve been challenged to make my own list by Karin at her blog  THE KARIN here goes  my post about  6 things that make me happy (in no particular order):

Walks: either with the headphones in listening to the latest music I have or with a friend talking about everything  and anything I enjoy experiencing the streets of toronto ( or anywhere really) and looking at all of the sights and sounds. A lot of the time I find I just zoom by things  and miss all the details, but by slowing down and making yourself more conscious you notice all of the new changes  and goings on around you. 

Books:  It can be  through school reading a sometimes long winded text book or  turning every suspense filled page of the the newest Koontz book ( right now reading Odd Hours!)  reading is something I’ve enjoyed for a long time. My family has always been pretty big on reading and I’ve always enjoyed learning about someones new idea or creative story line. Sitting down with a good book seems to just make everything fade away and places you  in the moment with every word on the page. I came upon this website 2 years ago and come back to it on a daily basis. To best describe it ,its basically a collection of stuff and just randomness. There are always links on this site that make me laugh, or links about a  current events that make me think. Oh and I can’t forget about the crazy marketing campaign they had last year called Drankkit World Tour! Overall a site that doesn’t take itself too seriously. 

Electronic Gaming: Ok I admit it, I’m a bit of a nerd…. I can’t help it! As soon as I had my hands on Super Mario Bros for the orignal Nintendo I was pretty hooked. While I don’t have the time/money to enjoy much of this current generations games ( althought Guitar Hero rocks!) I do from time to time pick up one of the old titles I have such as Halo or SSX snowboarding. Lately I’ve been getting my electronic gaming  fix at Newgrounds and for 2009 I’m looking forward to the release of StarCraft 2!

New Experiences:  from learning a new topic, exploring a new area of town or hanging out with a new friend I find experiencing something new or different exciting. I guess I can blame it on not staying in one place for too long, that gave  me a strong curiousity for things . 

Sleep!:  This is not to say I’m a slacker or anything but I always thought it was a good end to the day. The feeling of the blanket surrounding me, a  pitch black room and a soft pillow under my head , I always thought it a great place to be alone with my thoughts . I actually find I do some of my best  thinking/problem solving directly before and after I go to sleep.
