Happiness

So I wrote this much earlier yesterday while waiting around to meet my friends in Chelsea.

There are so many things to be thankful for in this world. On days like today I walk around, take a deep breath, step back, and think about all the good things in life. There are so many reasons to get out of bed in the morning. There are also reasons to stay in bed, but on days like today, I can’t help but smile when I step outside no matter how much I’d rather stay in my room and watch bad TV. Besides being thankful for my family and friends who love me, it’s the little things in life. For instance, it’s 1:30 P.M. on a Thursday and I’m sitting here writing in this pizzeria in Chelsea NYC. Up to this point I can list all the wonderful things that I take for granted that I’d like to take note of here. Now I know this is going to be a huge run-on sentence, but bear with me.

Waking up in my own room (yeah, something that shouldn’t really be an issue), technology – a computer that works, being on-line 24/7, AIM so I can talk to those friends of mine that live faraway, or actually go to school with me so I can find out what I’m missing by not being there, an e-mail that checks itself automatically like every minutes or so (Gmail rocks), a shower that isn’t clogged (thanks to me, I put the Draino in last night, as you could imagine this is a constant problem with three long haired girls using one shower – get your mind out of the gutter), the color pink (the color of the polo I’m wearing), corduroy (my jacket), checking the weather on-line realizing that it will be nice enough not to wear 15 layers and just put on a short sleeve shirt and a light jacket, looking at the time when I thought I was running late and realized that I can make a quick Ego waffle before I leave the place, not having to run tot he train, living across the street from the train station, my disc man that is also an MP3 player, being able to sit on the train peacefully, listening to music and writing (I’ve sat near some people that are really annoying and loud, even through headphones), cute guys with curly hair (nice to look at), leaving the train station and know exactly where I am in NY without having to walk a block and realize that I was going the wrong way, being able to look forward at the world while walking realizing my confidence in myself is growing, getting to my destination where I walked to rather then take the train an hour and a half earlier then I was supposed to leaving enough time to grab some food near by at a pizzeria, Mountain Dew (oh mighty Mt. Dew, how I love thee), and the man giving me an extra garlic knot which brings me to right now 1:45.

It took me 15 minutes to write about all the good things that are in my life just in the few hours I’ve been awake. Some other things I’d like to note that I’ve been thinking about lately that I’d glad I have in life: good friends, add in good drinks equals a heck of a great time, friends that aren’t afraid to tell each other that they love each other (if you feel it, say it right? Not all the time, just every once in awhile it’s nice to hear that you’re loved). Speaking of love, falling in and out of love. If I never experienced the bad (the ugly and the worst) I’d never be able to fully appreciate what is to come or what I have when it comes to love. Unexpected phone calls and notes, especially from people who you thought forgot all about you, animated movies, they sure do make me happy (I can’t wait to see Ice Age 2 this week). I got really lucky with my class at Montclair. I really truly enjoy every person’s company in the first years crop. If they weren’t who they are, I would of dropped out back in early October like I was seriously considering. Speaking of good friends, it’s time to go meet them…

So yeah, There you go… a post, that I hand wrote and wrote here. Yippee!!! I hope I didn’t bore you too much. Until later…

    I’m glad you’re happy! But you forgot one thing definitely worth being thankful for – the Oreo blizzard! God help us if those weren’t around.
