Happy things, 2013

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, which seems as good a time as any to reflect on the things for which I’m not necessarily thankful (that sort of adds a religious element I don’t much care for) but about which I am quite happy just the same:

  1. I’m very happy that I’m not in that really dark spot I was in a year or so back. It wasn’t pleasant, trust me. Taking the required steps to fix that was a smart move.
  2. I’m happy that I’m really into new music again.
  3. I’m happy that there’s so much less of me (by weight and by volume) now.
  4. Even though I miss my house and my neighborhood in Winston-Salem, I’m happy I live in Greensboro now. It’s much better for me in a number of ways.
  5. I’m happy that I’ve entered into an open relationship with an adorable orange cat named “Puppy.”
  6. I’m happy that I’ve reconnected with a lot of old friends this year.
  7. I’m happy to have rediscovered NYC and DC.
