#100HappyDays(Day 46-55)

May 7, 2014

Can you be happy 100 days straight? I can’t believe I’m halfway through the #100HappyDaysChallenge! I can honestly say that since I started this challenge back in March(?!) I’ve seen a HUGE change! I find happiness in every little moment now! I highly recommend everyone to take this challenge! Here’s what made me happy this week:
4/27/2014: Batman Drawing. Batman is my second favorite superhero (second to the X-Men of course) and this chalkboard drawing perfectly captures gotham city’s favorite misunderstood vigilante. 

4/28/2014: Kit Harington. Kit Harington + Rolling Stone?! Perfection! I am obsessed with Game of Thrones and Jon Snow is definitely one of my favorite male characters (no one can beat Tyrion though).
4/29/2014: Studying. The two hours it spend creating my Mass Media in History study guide really payed off! I only had to guess on 3 of the 65 final exam questions!
4/30/2014: Target. I LOVE Target! Target trips always make me happy. During this trip I stocked up on a couple blind bags for my Blind Bag & Box Roundup posts.
5/1/2014: Senior Sendoff. I can’t believe how fast these last four years of college went! On this day there was a special event for seniors that included free food, ice cream, inflatables, shirts (with a donation) and photos with the school mascot!
5/2/2014: American Authors. American Authors were so amazing live! That concert was a great way to end my last week of classes as an undergrad!
5/3/2014: Free Comic Book Day. I LOVE free comic book day! I always make sure to pick up the BONGO Simpsons comics each year. These year I got two Simpsons comics and a Teen Titans Go one.
5/4/2014: Strawberry Lemonade Mixer. I had been craving one of these babies for weeks! I love anything strawberry lemonade flavored.
5/5/2014: Kanye. This needs no explanation. 
5/6/2014: College of Communications. Today was my last day on my college campus. I can’t believe how fast these last 4 years flew by! It seems like just yesterday I was applying to college and now I’m graduating. Studying print journalism was one of the best decision of my life! I can’t wait to see where the communications field takes me!

4/24/2014: Moon Bounce. I love inflatables! All this week (and some of next week) at school is little mini carnivals! 
4/25/2014: Girls Vinyl. I got some really cool stuff  at Urban Outfitters this week but the best thing was the Girls Volume 1 soundtrack for only $9.99. I’ve been listening to it on repeat.

4/12/14: Finn. I went into McDonald’s just to ask if they had the My Little Pony happy meal toys yet and they said they no, so instead they gave me this Adventure Time toy for free! I didn’t even have to purchase a meal!

#100HappyDays (Day 9-16)

March 28, 2014

Can you be happy 100 days straight? 
Thursday, March 13, 2014, I decided to join the #100HappyDays challenge! The best part about this challenge is that the #100HappyDays challenge is for you – not for anyone else. It is not a happiness competition or a showing off contest. In this new series I will be gathering the photos of what made me happy each day that week! Here’s what made me happy this week:
3/21/14: Superhero Art. I grew up reading comics books (Batman and X-Men were my favorite) so I always appreciate cool comic book wall art.

3/22/14: Ice Skating. Ice skating is one of my favorite winter activities (even though it’s Spring.)
3/23/14: Racquetball. I have a new found love for racquetball!
3/24/14: Chick-fil-A waffle fries. I can’t even begin to describe my on again/off again relationship with these fries. 
3/25/14:Vogue. I finally saw the infamous Kimye Vogue cover in person.
3/26/14: Sushi. This week I’ve been trying new types of sushi! No more ‘California rolls’ for me.
3/27/14: Studying. I love listening to my record player while I study! My top three albums to play are The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and From Broadway to Hollowood (I play Moon River on REPEAT!)
3/28/14 (today): Friday Workouts. My X-Men water bottle is my best friend during my Monday/Wednesday/Friday workouts.
