๐ป๐‘’๐“ƒ๐“๐‘œ ๐’ป๐“‡๐‘’๐“ƒ๐“ˆ, I've been meaning to try my hand at one of these 30 Days Writing Challenges, so I thought "why not today?" My interest is piqued and hopefully, I don't give up in the middle.

Day 1: ๐˜“๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฑ๐˜ฑ๐˜บ

(this one was surprisingly more difficult than I expected. Anyway, in no particular order, here are ten things that make me happy)

1. ๐˜”๐˜บ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ: despite not always seeing eye to eye, she's done so much for me and I know I can rely on her for almost anything. A real legend if I do say so myself.

3. ๐˜”๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ค: I love music, I love music that has me shook within the first three seconds, I love listening to the same song on repeat for weeks on end. Music is so deeply a part of who I am, and I just couldn't live without it.

4. ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ: Shout out to the good ol' middle school days when I could read book after book, and somehow make the time for more books. I haven't been reading a lot lately, but when I do I feel better, at ease almost. I enjoy the escapism that comes with a good novel.

5. ๐˜‹๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ: I'm not all that great at it, but it's something I do a lot and enjoy. Besides, slow progress is still progress.

6. ๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ: sometimes I just wanna turn my brain off, follow a Bob Ross episode, and relax.

8. ๐˜‰๐˜ช๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต: this is something I do to clear my mind from a long, stressful day. Sometimes I just need to get out and breathe.

10. ๐˜‹๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ: straight up, doing nothing at all, when I have nothing to worry about, prime.
