Daily (not daily at all, but it has a nice ring to it) Dose of Happiness

I haven’t been this happy in a long time. Nothing out of the ordinary happened. But for about fourteen weeks it has been an uphill climb;, I’ve finally been getting it, I finally understand. I now understand that having a good group of friends makes a big difference in everyday life in AND outside of […]

Prompt

I hadn’t seen the Old Man since the day of his funeral. He had looked peaceful, like he was dreaming good dreams. Funny, that was exactly thirteen years ago. Unlike popular beliefs of thirteen being an unlucky number, thirteen was the Old Man’s favorite number. Everything was thirteen. He had published thirteen novels; each having thirteen long, […]

Daily Prompt

The text message simply said ‘very clever’. I looked out the train window at the passing trees, and smiled.  I’m in- they actually liked my idea! This was the start of my new life. I grinned, closed my eyes, then entered a blissful state of sleep. My brief nap was interrupted by a blood-curdling screech. […]

Daily Dose of Happiness

Holy guacamole. Today was hard. School is hard. Life is hard. Yes. Life is hard. It freaking sucks (for many reasons besides this). Sure, there are good things too, but that’s NOT the mood I’m in. Today I got a D on an essay. You might be thinking, “Oh, come on. It could be worse!” Yeah. […]

Daily Dose of Happiness

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” ~This is what was going through freshman Serena’s mind on the first day of school~ But hey, at least I only got lost once. Okay, maybe twice. That’s one of the worst feelings ever. Being tardy on the first day of school, then having to walk into a room full of strangers staring at […]

Daily Dose of Happiness

School is starting. Soon. For me, in 6 days. Summer flew by! One second, I was scared I was going to waste my summer. The next, I’m getting school supplies and prepping my backpack for school. I must say, I absolutely did NOT waste my summer. The first few weeks, I took advantage of sleeping […]

[The not so] Daily Dose of Happiness

Holy guacamole! I haven’t posted anything in a very, very, very long time. Well, unfortunately I have been self-diagnosed with something extremely serious- Writer’s Block. It makes me so sad to even think about it, because writing- as you may know- is my life. Every night, I glance at my laptop just laying beside my bed, […]

Over the break, try to turn your brain OFF. Don’t think about school, work, or whatever stresses you out. Use these two weeks to […]

Daily Dose of Happiness

Although working hard is a common mind set for many people, cutting yourself a break may bring more happiness, or joy into your life. I personally, push myself to do my best, whether it’s in school, or in my posts. While this thought is great for getting the job done, you may find yourself mentally […]

Daily Dose of Happiness

Things are just ways to distract people form the most important things ever. Things are just another way to tear the complex strings of humanity apart. This topic just brings to mind a few examples. During Thanksgiving, I had a LOT of family over. What really bothered me was how few words were spoken. Everybody’s […]

Daily Dose of Happiness

Friends in general are a pretty hard thing to come by. BUT, you know you have a true friend when you support them, and they support you back. Sometimes, it’s the simplest things! One thing that I recently did was buy tickets to my friend’s “Nutcracker” performance this weekend. By just doing that- it made […]
