100 things

I’ve had a rough couple days. This morning I woke up feeling like there was a cloud of anger and bitterness lingering over me. I can’t remember the last time I woke up in a bad mood.

Sure enough, I got to work this morning only to find a disgusting coworker’s lip prints all over MY coffee mug, which he had so kindly left on my desk, still dirty and half full of coffee. And then I opened up my email to a slew of passive aggressive messages from another coworker. Needless to say, my mood wasn’t improving.

I started browsing the internet, hoping to find a cute puppy video or something to put me in a better mood. Instead, I ended up on a blog that gave cliche “how to be happy” advice. But today is one of those days when I need advice, as cliche as possible, please. So I’m taking the advice of that blog and writing a list of things that make me happy. I’m going to try to get to 100. Here goes:
