"Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product" - Eleanor Roosevelt

Another article that helps you get to know me a little better! Here are 10 things that make me happy, in no particular order.

1. My friends and family

I always love seeing my friends and my family. I am a family person, so I’m very close with them. I also love my friends and whenever we see each other, we always have a great time – we don’t even have to be doing much.

2. Puppies/baby animals

I have always loved dogs since I was little and constantly begged my parents to get one (sadly I couldn’t convince them). I have many friends who own dogs and I love going over and playing with them. I also just love baby animals in general, like kittens, piglets, goats (kids) etc.

3. Random acts of kindness

Actually doing the act or even just being a witness to one makes you feel really good inside. You’ll know the feeling if you have seen it. Even just simple things like complementing someone or buying a coffee for the person behind you in line can make your day. Of course, being in the receiving end of an act of kindness isn’t too bad either 😉.

4. The smell of freshly cut grass

This makes me always think of summer. Whenever I walk by someone mowing their lawn, it makes me think just happy thoughts. Of course walking over the grass shavings isn’t the best since it gets on your shoes and stuff… But the smell…. 😊

5. Babies laughing

The sound of babies laughing is just a contagious, happy feeling. They’re so innocent and sometimes they have no idea what they’re doing. You can make them laugh so easily and when they do, you just can’t help but laugh along with them.

6. Sleeping

I think a lot of people can relate with me on this one. I love my sleep, especially with my university schedule, I wish I had more sleep. But of course this isn’t the case. Great reason why weekends are great because you can sleep in…

7. Relaxing at home and watching a show/movie

I also love watching new movies and tv shows. Watching movies in a theatre is great and all, but being in the comfort of your own home is something else. You can pause it or rewind if you missed something, you can eat whatever you please, it’s great. Tv shows are also the same.

8. Bubble tea

I know bubble tea recently became really popular but I’ve loved it for a couple years now. My parents introduced it to me when I was younger but I didn’t like it back then. In the middle of high school, I tried it again and I just couldn’t stop! My favourite flavours are mango bubble tea with tapioca and milk tea with tapioca.

9. Travelling to a new country/place

A thing I do with my family is travel. We travel to many places around the world, a new trip at least once a year. Outside of North America, I’ve travelled to several countries in Europe and a couple of cities in China. Travelling to a new country, trying their foods and being exposed to their culture is something that is so incredible and I am so grateful to be able to experience this.

10. Listening to my favourite music

Listening to music is probably one of my favourite things to do. I always have my Spotify on, either on my phone or laptop. I’ve even figured out a way to connect to Spotify through my TV! I have so many playlists and my favourite songs change pretty quick. Listening to newly released songs also makes me feel happy.

Much love <3
