I'm strangely fine with everything that has happened lately. I've had so many unfortunate things happen in the past year that I have just gotten to the point where I have to be okay with everything. If I continue to be upset about every little thing then I'm just going to make myself sick.
So right now I am going to list a few things that I am enjoying, happy things, good thing.
Miranda Hart in the titular role in Miranda
Knitter's Pride Karbonz
I don't spend a lot on myself that is for something that I don't "need" and that I just want. Most of my money goes towards bills or food because a girl's gotta eat. This set has been the best $16 I've spent on myself in a very long time. Possibly the best $16 I've spent on myself for knitting, ever. They are a dream. Mind you, I've only ever used aluminum needles and my sock needles are not something to be desired with their bent ends and warped middles and mismatchingness. I honestly don't remember the last time I bought myself needles or yarn that wasn't meant for someone else's project. I figured though if I want to give the whole designing thing a try, I should have at least one good set of needles and boy, are they great. It's like knitting with BUTTAH (except not in anyway at all...)
I have a lot of time at work and on my walk to class to listen to podcasts. I get bored with them a lot though so I only listen to the same one for a few months and then move on. Right now though, I am listening to CraftLit. It's half crafting, half audiobook and absolutely wonderful. As a self described reader who doesn't read that much and a knitter who believes she should always be knitting, this podcast is a perfect blend of the two.
My favorite time of year for candy is Easter time. There are so many different types of candies that you can't get the rest of the year and that are just better than everything else. This year, I found Sixlets in bright spring colors and then proceeded to eat the entire bag. It was a lot of Sixlets. And I don't regret it at all.
And finally on this list, Happy Endings. It's a fantastic sitcom that is probably going to be canceled and might or might not get picked up by another network. No show makes me laugh out loud as much as this one and no show is as unique as this one. I will even go as far as to say that this is my current favorite show that is on air right now and showing new episodes every week. So good. Give it a chance if you catch it on.
Looking at the things that make you happy, even the small things like favorite candy or new notebook, can brighten the mood. I know I feel better.
