Things That Make Me Happy These Days


Originally written April 23, 2020


I wanted to take a moment to appreciate the small things in my day-to-day activities that have been making me happy lately. It’s interesting that a lot of them have to do with connecting with loved ones. I am so happy and grateful that I have so many people in my life who I love and who love me too. I started a gratitude journal in April and more often than not I find myself writing about people in my life who I am grateful for.


Things that have been making me happy lately:

-hanging out with my roommates (specifically playing D&D, watching movies or playing a board game)

-having a “movie night” with a friend every Tuesday via Netflix Party

-FaceTiming my friend on Saturday mornings from bed

-playing against my sister in phone games

-talking to my sister, mom, and uncle more than usual

-having a vague daily schedule

-being able to watch TV or YouTube in the middle of the day

-Zoom calling with my old college roommates! I missed them so much!

-watching One Day at a Time with one of my roommates

-watching Good Girls with another roommate
