“What are 5 everyday things that bring you happiness?”

First, company. It doesn’t matter if it’s in person or virtual, though there is something magical about spending time with my xirlfriend in person that words cannot explain. Second, food. I am massively food motivated, and it’s not so much fancy foods – though I do like something flashy from time to time – but the joy of refueling. Third is coffee. This is overlap, but it just soothes my soul to have a cup of hot black coffee and feel the life flow through me. Fourth is writing. This is literally an every day thing, and it fills my heart with joy. And fifth, fresh air. Whether a walk or an open window, it’s so soothing to my soul.

I’m chilling with my xirlfriend and one of our mutual besties, and watching Game Grumps Punch Out videos. Life is great right now. I’m about 12K deep into a second dumb side project, and I am here for it because I am in chill out mode, maybe for a good long while. Also, I bought myself a super cool thing today. I got some money for my birthday, and when I went to Pink Gorilla in Seattle, they had a RetroFreak! I am so freaking happy.
