Hello readers! I was tagged by the lovely Rendz from Reading with Rendz to do this tag! Do pingback to her post here for some great answers! I kind of needed a happy tag because my school has finally started, and since it’s a new school and country, I’ve been feeling a bit sad and missing all my friends from India. Hopefully, this tag will cheer me up!
List 5 things that make you happy:
So I was definitely going to say books here, but considering this is a book blog and it’s kinda given that books make me very happy, I decided not to cheat and put 5 things other than books.
- Listening to music
Music makes me so so happy. I’m not a very musical person, I’ve only just started learning to play the guitar and can’t play any other instrument, but I loveeee listening to songs. I have a really wide music taste so really just listening to any beat immediately lightens me up and de-stresses me. I really start feeling more positive and calm, and my almost constant hatred for human stupidity decreases a notch, so ya, music DEFINITELY makes me happy.
- Watching FRIENDS
Oh my god, I love this T.V series to bits. I don’t really watch any t.v shows besides this, and I don’t even mind. FRIENDS is the one show which has laughing in splits, no matter how sad I felt before. The jokes and the characters are just so original and so completely hilarious, and they get to me every time. I don’t care how old this series gets or how many times I’ve watched all the episodes, I will watch it every time it runs, and nothing can change that.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ROLLERCOASTERS. I cannot even explain how happy roller-coasters and other adventure sports/rides make me. I’m all for thrill and speed and crazy stuff, and the adrenaline and exhilaration rollercoasters bring to me honestly cannot be matched. Just that feeling of the wind whipping my hair and the speed of the coaster practically pulling my cheeks off makes me happy. (I know that sounds a bit crazy, but AGH BEING CRAZY IS NECESSARY) seriously, that excitement is totally different from anything else.
Dancing has always been a passion of mine. I’ve been dancing since I was like four. At first, it was only to copy my cousin sister and get appreciation like she did (she’s an amazing dancer), but later I realised that it’s something I genuinely love. Of course at that time I used to think I’m amazing, (I was terrible), but it’s still something that makes me really happy. Moving to the rhythm and just losing myself in the music and forgetting all my problems is such a great feeling. I occasionally learn tutorials from YouTube (of the dancer Matt Steffanina, who is my favourite choreographer) and post them on Instagram as well. I’m not exceptionally good, but it’s something I love doing!
- Talking to my stuff toys
Some people might find this one a bit weird but this has been a habit of mine since I was really young. (and yes, I still have all of my stuff toys, I’ve never been able to bring myself to throw them away) Sometimes I feel really sad, or feel like I need to talk to someone but I don’t know who to turn to. In those cases, I go to my stuff toys. I just pick a few of them up, cuddle with them, and keep whispering things and how my day is going and how I’m feeling. It’s crazy how much better and more light I feel after that. I usually end up feeling a lot happier and end up with a solution for my own problem and it makes everything so much better!
List 5 songs that make you happy:
Ahh this is very hard, because I listen to lots and lots of music, and there are so many songs which make me happy. But I’ll list the top 5, which never fail at bringing a smile to my face.
