So I've been reading a book recently, and let me say, I've been extremely inspired! The book I'm indulging in is called the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. This is not to say I'm not a happy person, but in the words of Gretchen, "I'm not as happy as I could be." I've decided to start my own happiness project, and hopefully to encourage other people to just do the little things, that can make everyone so much happier!

For day one of Project: Happy, I'm simply doing laundry and cleaning out my closet. This may seem little, but I feel like it will make me feel a great deal better... I mean, your room should be a place to relax and be comfortable. Not a place were you go and feel overwhelmed with the mess! I need my space back!!!!! I'm also going to listen to music everyday. Apparently humming/ singing is one of the most relaxing things you can do, so I'm definately going to try it out.. I'll let you know how it works out.

I've made some rules learned from being a teenager:
1. Let the little things be
2. Don't procrastinate... do my homework ASAP!
3. Don't be hard on myself! I'll do better next time
4. Don't be hard on others, they are trying as best as they can
5. When in doubt, ask :)
6. Your parents love you, even if it doesn't seem like it right now
7. Sure times might seem hard, but act how you want to feel, and you'll feel better
8. How you act determines how you feel, act happy, feel happy
9. Lost something? Clean up!

...3 loads of laundry later, and a bag of clothes ready to donate, I feel great! While I was at it, I found my sketch book, I didn't realize how much I had missed that thing. Funny how things turn up just when you need 'em.
