This is Love.

I've been feeling far too negative as of late, so I spent Sunday focusing on writing a list of things that make me genuinely happy:

1. Roadtrips
2. Hitting deadlines
3. Receiving handwritten mail
4. Coffee!!
5. Fresh-baked bread
6. Eavesdropping on teenage boys talking about girls
7. The first time wearing new clothes
8. Freshly-laundered sheets
9. New favourite songs
10. Scientific-sounding words
11. Hugs/hand-holding (and any other oxytocin-inducing physical human contact)
12. Puppies (and most other baby animals)
13. Orgasms
14. Board game nights/building puzzles 
15. Swimming in Cold Lake (and most other bodies of water)
16. Sloths
17. Squeezing blackheads (not necessarily my own)
18. Reading books in the bathtub
19. Driving
20. Waking up in a sunny room
21. Favourite Scrabble words
22. Polka dots
23. Writing lists
24. Favourite mugs
25. Campfires
26. Dance parties
27. Potlucks
28. When someone cooks a special meal, just for me
29. Bike riding 
30. Take-out food movie nights
31. Affectionate nicknames
32. The sound of shoes clicking in an empty hallway
33. Diving off the side of boats
34. Freckles/scars
35. Second dates
36. Capture the flag/hide-and-go-seek
37. The smell of skunk
38. Drinking from coconuts
39. Sharing pistachios
40. Fresh haircuts
41. Ridiculous Facebook conversation threads
42. Spontaneously planned hangover brunches
43. Walking around barefoot outside (and also in other places that one should not typically walk in bare feet, such as airports)
44. Stealing the neighbour's cat, Loki, and making him cuddle with me

    I like all these things. And I like you.

  2. I like being liked! Best day.

    I agree with anonymous 1 above. but I am better than him.

  4. Why are we assuming that anonymous #1 is male? I'm actually fairly confident that the first comment was left by a female. And really, why all the anonymous liking? Can't people just outright like me? And like all this stuff?

  5. I love your blog, Jess. I also love sloths! But maybe not the smell of a skunk...
