Hi everyone, :)
It's me, Penny here. As I said in my first article, I'll start a writing challenge. Here it is with day one, and today, I'll tell you 10 (small) things that make me incredibly happy.

  • Being with my friends

I don't have a ton of friends, but the few I have got, they are really amazing. They always make me laugh, no matter what. They make me feel good about myself. I'm calm and joyful around them, I have the best time with them.

  • Reading

Especially with a huge, warm blanket and hot tea beside me. Extra point for rainy weather outside. If all these things happen at the same time, my day is saved.

  • Watching my favourite films or series

What else can I say about that? It's pretty common among teenagers to watch series and I'm not an odd one out. I can't deny, I'm sinking deeper and deeper into fandoms. :D

  • Being with animals

I'm filled with pure joy the moment I see them. I don't know why, they just make me happy. :)

  • Learning about new things

What can I say, I'm a hopless nerd. I don't like this word tho. :D I just really enjoy learning new things and this doesn't mean I don't find some things dull. I just adore the world and its knowledge.

  • Being outside

Just sitting outside, watching the nature is enough for me to recharge. It's so calming and gorgeous.

  • Sunsets and sunrises

I'm in love with them. The colour of the sky is so fascinating, I can't get enough of its beauty.

  • Being genuienly kind and/or polite to someone

It makes me really happy to see people smiling. Even if it lasts for only a few seconds. Maybe I made their day a little bit happier too.

  • Understanding a text in a foreign language

I learn English and German at school, so when I'm able to understand a text or conversation in these languages elsewhere (e.g. on Youtube), I'm so happy. :)

  • Travelling with train

I have no idea why I find travelling with train so satisfying. Maybe it's the fact that I'm travelling to my destination, where I've never been before.

So here they were the 10 little things that make me happy. I hope it made you think about the things that make you happy. :) Enjoy life, enjoy the little things.

lots of love,
