happiness challenge

30 days of happiness-01.jpgstumbling across a neat little challenge that i also wanted to take on. i added a little spice to the original list and call this series the 30 days of happiness. for the thirty days in april, i’ll try to check off one item on this list each day. it doesn’t sound like much, but fulfilling one item a day would accumulate. the trick is no two days will be the same and by the time april end rolls around, many boxes will be checked off. by doing so, it makes my brain look for something good each day, regardless of whether i love or hate doing something. let’s keep the spring season ahead light and create a habit to be happy

day 1330 – pregame meal

sticking with my simple pregame meal before a playoff game. my first season is officially over after tonight’s loss but i enjoyed my rookie season and is happy with the successes and improvements that came with it. scoring my first career goal was a big one for me and i only got more comfortable as the season went on. i filled the stat sheet burying three goals and adding four stars beside my name on the hard hat. i’d say it was a good rookie season for me and exceeded all my helpful teammates’ expectations. i’m really looking forward to the spring season and drop ins to see where my sophomore season will take me

my masterpiece for pumpkin carving contest that won my team second place award. it wasn’t perfect by all means but found ways to cover up the little mistakes along the way. it certainly didn’t turn out exactly how i drew it up but still proud of the final product. we were expecting much of of this because we were worried that the design was too simple, but sometimes less is more

twenties series: [seven] drama

throughout each of the schooling stages so far, i have met a lot of different people with unique characters. some people are born with the innate ability to be drama queens and drama kings. it is no uncommon when situations seen by different sides will result in different stories, that’s when they overreact and blow things out of proportion just to get other’s attention and seek support. i have been involved in a series of dramatic events in the past, none of which was worthwhile for the amount of time and energy put forth to resolving all that. i can’t really speak for others, maybe some people enjoy being in the middle of drama, but i personally would like to distant myself from all that. i learned that i like to stay away from drama as much as i can because it causes too much stress and takes a lot of time and effort. try to focus on what’s controllable and don’t waste my precious time stressing over what’s beyond my control. with the amount of stress i have in my daily life, the last thing i need is to add on more unnecessary stress. i find that the older i get, the less involved i want to be in these uncalled for situations. it’s just good to keep some things personal and keep life simple whenever possible because sometimes less is more. the only drama i like and is absolutely addicted to is hong kong tvb drama, otherwise, leave me out of it
