Happiness Defined (finals week version)

  • Happiness is finally leaving the library after being there 10 hours that day.
  • Happiness is selling your book back and being told they were only buying two more of that book. 
  • Happiness is knowing you'll never have to take an epidemiology test again.
  • Happiness is when the boy taking his test next to you in the testing center offers you a slice of his chocolate orange.
  • Happiness is a candlelight dinner when and where you least expect it. 
  • Happiness is feeling your ears thaw after four miles in 23 degrees. 
  • Happiness is knowing you'll be in Mexico in three days where it's 63 and sunny. 
  • Happiness is having roommates that are so awesome that you don't even mind cleaning checks, just because you get to clean with them
  • Happiness is eating at the Cannon Center with Hope and her meal plan when the only food you have is frozen spinach and a box of Chex. 
  • Happiness is making new friends.
  • Happiness is that temporary feeling of being rich when you have a wad of cash from selling your text books back.
  • Happiness is your boss giving you a whole plate of fudge and a pecan log.
  • Happiness is your freshman roommate Emily Armstrong coming to visit you from California!
  • Happiness is when none of your pumpkin bread loaves in your second batch stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Happiness is staying up late and then actually sleeping in (don't be too jealous mom and Carrie).
  • Happiness is having the sweetest visiting teachers in the ward. 
  • Happiness is reading stories like this (click here) and feeling the true spirit of Christmas. 
  • Happiness is not having to say goodbye to BYU and your ward because you're coming back next semester.
  • Happiness is knowing tomorrow you'll walk in the door and be pummeled by anxious nieces and nephews and hug your wonderful parents. 

As my roommate Brooke says,

Isn't it nice to know that the lining is silver?
