Things that make me happy :)

I have two followers now! Yay, thanks for following me Lauren!

This list is not in order of how happy these things make me, they all make me really super happy in some way or another.

1. Rain
I love the sound of rain. Sometimes I like to go out when it's raining and just get completely soaked then come back in and change into comfy dry clothes and drink hot cocoa. I never use an umbrella, ever, but I do like pictures of people with umbrellas.

2. Lightning
It's so incredibly powerful and yet beautiful. I love to photograph lightning. My mom's afraid I'm going to get struck by lightning but I stay away from tall things like trees and I stay low to the ground, so far so good. I did take this picture.
3. Holding hands
I like holding hands more than kissing. I just feel such a sense of security and togetherness. It's completely impossible for me to be unhappy while holding hands.

4. Sunset
I love watching the sunset and taking pictures of sunsets. It's so unique every night and it's really cool because in some other part of the country, the sunset could look completely different, and this one is exclusive to you and the other people where you are. I feel calm and peaceful when I watch the sunset. It's a wonderful stress-melter. I took this picture, among many others. It was so hard to choose!
5. Tim Burton movies
For those of you who don't know what I mean, Tim Burton directed pretty much all of the best movies ever, at least in my opinion. The list includes, but is not limited to: Edward Scissorhands, Coraline, Nightmare Before Christmas, 9, James and the Giant Peach, Beetlejuice, and the Corpse Bride. His movies are all slightly twisted while being oddly sweet, and get this, they're musicals! I don't even like any other musicals besides Tim Burton movies. At first, I didn't even notice they were musicals until my brother pointed it out, but they have awesome music, usually by Danny Elfman, so it's okay. I have a Nightmare Before Christmas purse and I named my guitar and my keyboard Jack and Sally, respectively.

That's pretty much the most unique things that make me happy. Also, hacky sacking is my addiction. It's pretty healthy, as far as addictions go. Other, more common things are friends, family, food, and of course music. I couldn't imagine life without music, or any of the other things on my list really, but if I had to pick one thing that I would never live without, it would have to be music.
What are the slightly strange things that make you the most happy?


  1. Tim Burton movies are the best! I think "Big Fish" is my favorite, closely followed by "Edward Scissorhands."

    And I love that rain is at the top of your list. You are truly from the Northwest.

  2. I love "Big Fish" but Edward Scissorhands is definitely my favorite. Rain is on the top of my list because I fell asleep last night to the sound of rain.

  3. Rain would definitely be on my list, but it hasn't always been there. Now that I have lived in Arizona for nearly two years and have experienced two of their ridiculous summers... I LOVE THE RAIN! It rains like 7 times a year here, but every time it does, you can find me playing in it :)
