Sitting here, working on a big project has got me thinking...

The things I find happiness and enjoyment in are frankly, quite strange. They are also very random, and follow no matter at all like most things do. My enjoyment list is much like my music playlist: no pattern, no style, no genre. I can like and dislike ANYTHING, no matter how strange or stupid it is.

One thing I like involved my music. As stated, my music tastes are... Anything and everything as the beat fits my liking, it's in my good books. For example, I've got a mixture of artists: Jonas Blue, Once Direction, Jess Glynne, The Chainsmokers- name a modern artist and I will probably have one of their songs in my playlist!

Another thing includes my clothing. While I like to wear ripped jeans and leather jackets like a stereotypical rebellious soon-to-be 14-year-old, I also love to wear childish things such as cute Japanese school girl stockings and overalls.

And perhaps the most strange that I've found today: now. I've been sitting here in my room for around an hour. The thing is with my room at the minute is that it's frighteningly bare, and very very untidy. THis is because we recently sold the bunkbeds I had and I'm getting a new bed tomorow, so for now I'm on a mattress on the floor. However, sitting here on the mattress, surrounded in my sister's mess, and working on my roleplay group... I'm surprisingly happy about it. I Know a lot of people wouldn't necessarily understand my reasoning behind it, and frankly I can't explain it. But the feeling of sitting down without a bed frame on more than one device feels like it's giving me a sense of.. Reality and professionalism. As I said, I can't explain it and I'm not entirely sure myself. It just... Does. XD

Anyway, so.. What makes other people on here happy? What do you enjoy?

My list is rather odd as well, like my music to lol:

My kids
A good book
Puppy yawns!!!
The smell of horses
Women
Rainbowwwssss!!!!
My family
Rain
Thunder storms
My god daughter❤️
Roleplaying
Singing
Music
Fresh cut grass
Socks..yes socks

Finishing up a problematic character xso that I am finally satisfied with it, is definitely a high point for me, usually!

Finding a new author I really enjoy, and diving into every one of their books I can get my hands on.

Making an RP post I can be proud of ^_^

Oh, and getting a long night of uninterrupted sleep is always nice! I know it sounds simple, but it is oh so refreshing!

Maybe you feel like you have you're own little office? Or maybe the mess has a feeling of familiarity that makes you feel content and comfortable? Weirdly, I think I might know what you mean. Being close to the ground is some kind of thing too. Like it gives you a different view of the room. There's something freeing about it.

Me? People saying sweet stuff to me, erm... music...sit coms...good Mexican food or Tex-Mex, people showing love, feeling like I know what I'm doing at work.

Bubble baths, food, Netflix, spas, mani-pedis....relaxation. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE waking up feeling rested which happens almost never.

  • Fluffy blankets
  • Junk food, Chinese food, and seafood
  • Animals, particularly horses and dogs along with penguins
  • Babies
  • The color teal
  • Music. Country, classic rock, pop. Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, Old Dominion, Jimi Hendrix to name a few specifics though I could go on and on in a wide variety of genres/musical sound
  • The smell of fresh cut hay
  • The sounds of a horse's hoof beats, nickers, neigh all of those wonderful horsey noises
  • Creativity in the forms of drawing, writing, and RP
  • Pens. I'm a total hoarder of gel pens
  • Speaking of hoarding, I also love to hoard books and magazines that I will read over and over again. They're like my children and it's very rare for me to get rid of one
  • Comedy. There's nothing like a good laugh to make your day.
  • Character creating. I can keep myself occupied for hours planning out characters down to the most minute details in a notebook

    I could go on and on but here's a good place to stop for now XD

My band,My family and friends,my RPRepository freinds, my bass playing and songwriting, sleeping in, swimming, buying basses and string bikini swimsuits, going back to my reservation.

Echoing Pastel Galaxy and SexySultryBabe, Jimi Hendrix and sleeping in makes me happy. In lieu of sleeping in, naps do as well. There is a lot that makes me happy, and everyday when I awake, to be able to do so is the first step in the day's happiness. The next step of a day's happiness is that first cup of coffee....

I am a simple man.

I enjoy finding truck parking for the night

I enjoy night driving

I enjoy work

And above all other things.....

I enjoy receiving messages in my inbox on rpr, particularly the ones for actual roleplay. I get giddy when I finally get one back hehe

Can definitely relate to that, lol! It's one of the best feelings for me tbh XD especially if it's one that is really emotionally strong for me.

One thing I really love is going to sleep when the sheets have just been changed, while wearing clean bed clothes and having just taken a bath. I also feel a lot of happiness from observing my surroundings when outside. Also baking cookies, haha. :D
