10 things that make me happy

« previous entry | next entry »

Thanks to @demonessryu for tagging me! It took me a while, I just don't like writing about myself these days. So:

  1. I am employed! I like the company and the people and my job pretty well.

  2. I really like getting paid

  3. I get to ride a train to work, and I still love trains! It's not a perfect solution, but I would literally die if I had to drive. I'm working at home a couple of days a week as well. We'll see what happens when it gets dark at 4:30

  4. My daughter, who is showing me the Big Fat Quiz of Everything at the moment and generally being wonderful. And a family that watches Granada Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes together...

  5. My little house, which is cluttered, but still has high ceilings and lots of windows and green outside, and feels good.

  6. Good food: chocolate, Dungeness Crab, stone fruit esp. cherries and peaches, a perfect roast chicken, sushi, artisan bread, channa masala

  7. The weather is mostly mild and foggy in the mornings, sunny during the afternoons. My work is further inland but they have AC, as does the train.

  8. Fandom friends old and new, and art and fic with so much happy smut! And angsty epics and confusing wonderful fics and crossovers galore.

  9. Aidan Turner and Dean O'Gorman and Graham McTavish going to conventions (sadly, not the same ones) and still enjoying the fan love

  10. The color green, specifically dark emerald green.

I'm so glad you did this! And I am delighted to read items 1 and 2. Go you!

I also love trains so I envy you your commute. I mean, if you have to commute, that's the way to go.

Hi Avi,

I hope you and your family are doing well. I'm happy to hear that your job is going well for you. I remembered you asked about teengirl going to China for summer (or something like that). Did it work out? I hope it did!

re: teengirl on whether to do IB. I did the full IB diploma when I was in high school and I loved it (because I had amazing teachers), even though I sucked so hard at chemistry. I definitely do not regret doing IB. It was one of the best decisions of my high school life.

Take care!

yueni
