@TypicalGirl48 has set up a 30 day challenge where you have to answer one question each day for 30 days to let your followers know a bit more about yourself. I will try to post one article every day but maybe I will have to skip a few days due to school stress. You can find the original challenge here:

Day five

What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?

Right now, phew. I'm not gonna interpret "right now" as "in this particular moment" but as "in my current life situation".

1: My friends
I have a few friends from my school that made me very happy over the last weeks, even if I had a few bad days. It's not like they know everything about me or something like that but they are so funny and it's so fun when we're doing something together! They can really light up my mood, especially in school, even when I feel tired and grumpy they can make me smile. And of course my best friend makes me extra happy, she's the best friend I could have and I'm so glad to have her!!

2: School
I guess I have to elaborate what I mean by "school". I do not really like school and school alone is not one of the five things that make me most happy right now but it's the current circumstances about school that make me happy. I started 11th grade about a week ago and so far it's really been so so so much better than the last years!! In my school system 11th and 12th grade are very different from grade 1-10 and so far I really feel comfortable with the changes. My teachers are all very nice, my schedule is AMAZING compared to those of my friends and I'm having one of my two AP classes with my best friend!! I really hope that I can change my studying habits for the better and I will make sure to enjoy my last years of school as much as possible!

3: My family
I have spent a lot of time with my family lately, especially with my siblings due to the fact that my dad has a lot of work lately and my mom can't do it all on her own. I go out with my siblings more, because they are all younger than me I often take them to the playground or visit my dad at work with them. It always makes him so happy and I try my best to make my parents happy lately. A few days ago I bought my mom flowers and she was so touched I nearly cried. It made her so happy and she felt so loved and grateful and that made me really happy.

4: Making people happy
I mentioned it before (also in other articles) and I will mention it again: I love love love making people happy. It makes me feel so damn good!! When I feel down that really makes me feel wanted and at least I get the feeling that I could maybe brighten up someone else's day a little. For example, I always try to be the nicest I can to people that seem like they are stressed or don't have a good day. You could try to compliment the cashier when you go grocery shopping, often they have a long shift and even just a little compliment can make them feel a little bit better and it will make you happier too, I promise!

5: Traveling, exploring, adventures
Over the last years, traveling has become a big passion for me thanks to my dad. He kind of has the dream that he can show me many countries so I have a "high number" of countries that I visited so far. (At the moment it's fourteen!) I know, it's a bit weird but I really began to like the idea that I visited many different countries and so traveling and exploring developed into a great passion. It's not just countries anymore, I enjoy visiting famous sights, new cities, exploring beautiful places and collecting memories of places I've never been before. What makes the thing even more fun to me is that I love photography and what is better than visiting a new, beautiful place? Taking wonderful photos of said place! Hell, I even enjoy walking through streets of my own city where I've never been before! It just makes life more meaningful to me because there is so much so see!!
