TAG: What Makes Me Happy

What makes me happy tag

Thank you so much for tagging me, Jay@ThisIsMyTruthNow on the ‘What Makes Me Happy’ tag! To say that Jay is an amazing guy is totally an understatement… his kindness and generosity is almost a superhuman level. It’s been amazing and incredible since I met you, Jay! Thank you so much 🙂 If you haven’t already, go check out his amazing, mind-blowing blog. He couldn’t disappoint!
Now, let’s dive into the questions!

 

List 5 Things That Make You Happy

Reading
Reading has become an integral part of my everyday life. I always carry around a physical book or my Kindle Fire wherever I go. If I don’t get any reading done due to obligatory socializing (which I am not even inclined to… like office drinking parties and such), it frustrates me like crazy.

Blogging 
Blogging is also very important to me. To be more precise, I love chatting back and forth with you all! Making posts, especially writing book reviews can be tough sometimes (because I am not sure if I get to capture the essence of the book correctly), I’m always worried if my perception is way off the mark, but I love getting comments and responding them. Thank you so much for making my life entertaining!

Using English
I don’t like STUDYING English, but I’ve always loved using English. Obviously, I did go through a long phase of studying English, probably until two years ago, but I finally decided to shift from putting my nose in grammar books or text books to actually using it.
That said, ‘using’ in this context means ‘writing’ in English and needless to say, NOT in a creative sense. I have no creativity whatsoever. DON’T expect me to write short stories or anything, I could never do it. And yes, it’s limited to ‘writing’ in English; my speaking skills have gotten pretty rusty, if you were to have an online chat with me over skype or something, my speech will be a complete mess with my grammar all over the place. Seriously.

Harmonious relationships with others
This doesn’t necessarily mean relationships or bonds with someone close to me. It’s not limited to my friends, family, relatives… it can be with anybody. You don’t have to be a jerk or overly obnoxious to others; it just makes our lives even shi**ier and more miserable and we certainly don’t want that.
Having a fun, friendly chat and conversation with others will light up our day; when that happens first thing in the morning, that will keep me a happy girl the entire day 🙂

Listening to music/watching YouTube Videos (excuse it’s 6, not 5…)
Likewise reading, I cannot skip listening to music/watching YouTube videos even a day; that’ll drive me crazy for sure.
To tell the truth, the duration of time I watch YouTube videos has shortened significantly since I became pretty (super??) active on blogging, but I’m still very much fond of watching BookTubers’ videos. When I don’t have anything else to do and don’t feel like reading, I go to YouTube. I’m a YouTube junkie. 😛

List 5 Songs That Make You Happy

I don’t know exactly what kind of songs fall into ‘Makes you happy’ category, so I’ll interpret this question as 5 songs that I would go for when I want to lift my spirit.

 

TOTO: King of the World (from ‘Falling in Between’)
Ke$ha :TiK ToK
Pharrell Williams: Happy

(There is actually a Japanese version, but don’t watch it! That’s crappy. I flat-out dislike it)

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Tell Me Baby
Treasure Fingers :Cross the Dance Floor (George Anzaldo Choreo video)

(The first half is an interview with George Anzaldo, so fast forward to 1:48 to listen to the tune. I love this!! And his body execution is so SMOOOTH!!)

 

I TAG:

Mischenko@ReadRantRock&Roll

CoffeelovingBookholic

Steph@Lost Purple Quil

Harini@Books and Readers

Nika@Bookster

As always, you can feel free to skip it, don’t feel obliged to do it 🙂
If you participate, have fun!

That’s it, guys! Those are the things that make me happy.
But, more than anything, it is you guys that make me extremely happy ❤  Just remember that!

Thank you so much for reading as always, I’ll see you all in my next post!

    So cute!! I really like Tik Tok and Happy! Lately I’ve been addicted to How Far I’ll Go… yes, from the Disney’s Moana cartoon… I don’t know why but it always makes me happy.

    Those songs all count. 🙂 Tik Tok is a great one. And Toto… you know I like Them.

    But my favorite is the picture of your aunt’s pup. 🙂

      You’re very welcome, Nika! Tik Tok was actually a memorable song for me… I took a redeye when I went to London four years ago, and I was listening to this tune over and over and over again. I was sitting in a window seat, and when I opened up my eyes, I saw a myriad of stars shining extremely bright. The beautiful stars and this song are still deeply etched into my memory ❤

    Thank you for the tag!! This is such a nice one ❤ I love your list, I feel like I can relate to all of them (except perhaps the English one since it's my native language, but then again I do enjoy using it, hahah).

      Thank you, Inge! I know! My aunt’s pup is a cutie ❤ I cannot get enough of him… he hardly ever barks. He's very quiet but kind of needy, always jumps up on my knees and licks my face lol
