A happy post

I do not like January and February. Oh, you picked up on that already? Silly me, thinking I was being subtle.

But I'm getting a little tired of dwelling on my list of 7,000 Reasons Why This Time of Year Is Out to Get Me. So today I'm just going to think about happy things.

  • BYU basketball. My cougars account for about 70 percent of my happiness during this time of year. I'm glad that horrible losing streak was in December and not now, because I really don't think I could handle too many losses at the moment.
  • I started reading The Count of Monte Cristo. It's ridiculously long (1200+ pages), and I love it.
  • I pulled out my Gilmore Girls DVDs a few weeks ago. Prepare yourself for an uptick in GG references during the next few months.
  • My bread maker and I are working our way toward a happy medium.
  • Now that I'm making my own bread, I don't have to go to the grocery store as much.
  • I still love "Danny Boy," even though I listened to it like 30 times last week.
  • The Hudson Lights album isn't bad, either.
  • The unexpected peace and calm from Saturday's temple visit hasn't worn off yet.
  • I still have some Christmas chocolate left. (By the way, melted Resee's are delicious.)
  • I bought gas for $2.96/gallon this morning. It was at least $3.09 everywhere else.
  • I think I'm going to make a couple of chains this week: 70 for school and 128 for vacation.
  • I get a free dinner on Thursday.
  • My bed is so, so soft.
  • I should get a pretty good tax return this year. Yay for being a student.
  • My typing-up-journals project has reached my college life. I miss my college life. You know what's crazy? By the end of this year, I will have been out of college for longer than I was in college. Please excuse me while I pick up the pieces of my blown mind.
