This is not something I have been reflecting on as much as I should lately. In the last few days I have had a lot of car trouble so I’ve let a little cloud hang over my head. But now I am happy to think of reasons to be happy!
- I have an incredibly supportive family. My car broke down when I was driving back to college from my hometown and my family dropped everything to come to my rescue. My sister came to pick me up from the gas station where I was stranded and my parents went to pick my car up from the gas station a few hours later. The next day my dad and I tried to fix the problem on our own. Although we didn’t fix the problem, I got to spend a lot of time with my dad and that was really awesome.
- I am getting new appliances tomorrow! The apartment where I live has been going through renovations slowly but surely. A few months ago they put in new hardwood floors, a month ago they replaced the old furniture with new furniture, and tomorrow they are putting in new appliances! This means they’ll be giving the apartment a new oven and oven top, refrigerator, and washer and dryer. I am very excited because this is the last stage of the renovation and my roommates and I don’t have to pay for any of it!
- I leave for Chile in 2 weeks! This is very surreal to me because my trip does not feel that close. I still have a couple things to do like order some of the currency and get some of my prescriptions but I am almost ready to go! Luckily I have a friend that is already down there and she has been giving me advice about clothes and money which I am very grateful for! I am so excited for this trip!
- I am about to be a senior in college! This is bittersweet, but I am excited nonetheless. I miss going to classes, I miss my on campus job, I miss my roommates, I miss my boyfriend, and I miss going to different fun events with them. I am working on a Senior Year Bucket List so I can have the best senior year possible!
Writing this post has put me in a super duper good mood! What are your reasons to be happy? Let’s explore these things and feel happier together!
