TEN ODDLY SPECIFIC THOUGHTS AND THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

~in no particular order~



  • THE SMELL OF A LAWNMOWER CUTTING GRASS. I LOVE THE SMELL OF FRESH-CUT GRASS MIXED WITH GASOLINE.


  • THE FEELING OF STARTING SOMETHING NEW. THE MORE SIGNIFICANT THE BETTER. UNCERTAINTY IS SCARY, BUT THERE IS ALSO A THRILL THAT ACCOMPANIES IT. I FIND THAT THRILL MAKES ME INCREDIBLY HAPPY.


  • MY DOGS EARS, THEY’RE SO SOFT.


  • METAPHORS RELATED TO NATURE. ESPECIALLY TREES AND WATER.


  • SENDING PEOPLE PHOTOS OF THEMSELVES (NOT IN A CREEPY WAY LOL). IT'S 10X BETTER THAN ANY PHOTO OF MYSELF.


  • TALKING TO SOMEONE THAT I HAVEN’T SPOKEN TO IN A WHILE. I LOVE CATCHING UP, AND HEARING NEW STUFF ABOUT PEOPLE. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT IT.


  • IF YOU SPEND LONG ENOUGH LOOKING AT ONE SPECIFIC THING YOU WILL EVENTUALLY FIND AN IMPERFECTION. BUT THE FACT THAT IT IS IMPERFECT MAKES IT PERFECT. I LIKE TO THINK THAT THE MIND MAKES IMPERFECTIONS ON PURPOSE. THAT IS, BECAUSE DEEP DOWN WE KNOW THAT THERE IS NO PERFECT FORM OF HUMANITY. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE WANT REGARD OURSELVES AS PERFECT. SO WE SPEND OUR TIME FINDING A WAY TO JUSTIFY IMPERFECTIONS IN THE WORLD AROUND US. BRINGING THEM TO THE LEVEL IN WHICH WE VALUE OURSELVES OR HUMANITY. SO BEAUTIFULLY HUMAN AND I LOVE IT!


  • THE FEELING OF A REALLY GOOD PEN ON PAPER.


  • ANY ANALOG MECHANISM! MY 40-YEAR-OLD FILM CAMERAS, VINYL, AND CASSETTE TAPES. EVEN THOUGH I COULDN’T TELL YOU HOW ANY OF THAT STUFF WORKS. I LOVE IT!


  • CONSTANTLY THINKING ABOUT WHAT MY PRESENT LIFE WOULD LOOK LIKE IF I WAS IN A WES ANDERSON MOVIE.




  • SOMEONE WITH A LAUGH SO CONTAGIOUS THAT IT CAN KEEP A GROUP OF PEOPLE LAUGHING FOR 10 MINUTES STRAIGHT.
