Things that make me happy

Taken directly from my friend Stephanie‘s blog.

So, seven things that are making me happy, after how long of having depressing, low-self-esteem posts.

1. It is almost Thanksgiving break, even though with my schedule that means only one day.

2. Related, but separate; Stephanie (of the blog fame mentioned above) is coming home for Thanksgiving. I will be spending a lot of time over there with her this weekend.

3. On Wednsday, I will be going over to my grandma’s house with my dad (his parents) to help set up for Thanksgiving. Grandma has Alzheimers, but it’s not too bad yet, just fogetting minor things, but grandpa refuses to adapt to try and help, and is only focused on himself. But I digress. Grandpa will be out that day (volunteers with PD, every Tues and Wed), so it will just be me, my dad, and grandma. Grandpa is the stereotypical, crotchety old man. : D

4. Gas prices are plumeting. Filling up last time cost $26.

5. I signed up for classes last Thursday, and got all the classes I wanted. While one of them did actually have a prerequisite that I didn’t notice, I signed up for another class in case I do have to drop it. Haven’t heard back from the teacher yet, but either way I have all the units I need.

6. I will not win NaNoWriMo, but I surpassed my wordcount from last year, and may add some more. Last year my story ended at about 14k, and I’m at 16k plus some change, and it’s not finished. I wonder if I will actually finish the story…

7. Uh… crap, one more. Uh… OH! The Dickens Christmas Faire is coming up! My mom has been before, but it has been a long time, and we will be going.

Which reminds me, oh Stephanie…

    It’s always nice to focus on the good things in life. It helps to put oneself in a more positive state of mind. Congratulations on surpassing your previous record in NaNoWriMo and good luck in this final stretch. Maybe you might not win, but you’ve still challenged yourself and have 16,000 words to show for it. That’s still worth bragging about.
