8 Things That Make Me Happy

1 April 2015

I have decided to be a bit more optimistic. I had my hopes up and I let faillure bring me down. I am not a quitter or like they'd say on the tv show SCANDAL : ' ARE WE GLADITORS OR ARE WE BITCHES ? ' Well, I'm a gladiator. I don't give up easily. I needed to remind myself of it I guess. I am not doing very great in my university course at the moment but I am not giving up either. My intership in a primary school is almost over. It has been quite enlightening. Like probably almost everyone in their 20s I am struggling to find my path. Knowing what you want to do with the rest of your life is not an easy task. Anyway, I figured I would share with you what makes me happy on a daily basis. What make your life brighter?

J'ai décidé d'être un peu plus optimiste. J'avais déposé beaucoup d'espoir dans quelque chose et j'ai laissé mon échec me ronger. Je ne laisserais pas tomber. Comme dirait Olivia Pope et ses associés (Ref. Scandal, séries abc.) : " ARE WE GLADITORS OR ARE WE BITCHES ? ". Eh bien, je suis un gladiateur. Je ne compte pas baisser les bras aussi facilement. J'avais probablement simplement besoin de me le rappeler. J'ai presque terminé mon stage dans un collège. Ce fût une expérience enrichissante et surprenante. Comme probablement, toutes les personnes dans la vingtaine, je bataille pour trouver ma voie. Savoir quoi faire pour le reste de sa vie n'est pas tâche facile. Bref, j'ai pensé que ce serait intéressant que je partage avec vous les petites choses qui me rendent heureuse au quotidien. J'espère que cela vous plaira. N'hésitez pas à partager avec moi les vôtres :)

1. My cat ≈ His name is Nolan. He has 8 months. He is a piece of work. He has a strong character but I don't regret adopting him for one bit.
2. My family ≈ Up and down are to expect BUT every family is dysfunctional on its own way. It doesn't mean I don't love them. Blood is thicker than anything. I am very grateful for one person in particular, my grandmother who has taught me and supported me so much through the years. I feel so lucky to still have you by my side.
3. My friends ≈ I think about all those who come and go into my life. Those who I don't get to see anymore and those who are still there even after all this time. But also those I met not so long ago. I think friendship is the greatest gift of all. Clara, Marie, Anaïs, Mélissa, Elizabeth and everyone else. Seeing you always make everything better!
4. Books and Tv shows, what would I be without you? Reading and watching tv shows are 2 activities I would pick any day over pretty much almost anything. Yet, I can control myself don't worry.
5. Tea and coffee ≈ Yes, you didn't misread that one. My tea makes my day better. Tea solves everything, as they say. Coffee with caramel, vanilla or anything like that is heaven to me.
6. Writing ≈ I think I started writing in primary school. I began by writing small poems and then I moved up to stories. Now, I guess I'm writing a blog. It allows me to shut the outside world for a while and I love that feeling.
7. Shopping & museums ≈ I admit it's a shame. I love going shopping. looking at pretty things and stuff like that are quite relaxing and make my creativity flow. Capitalism is not good for my savings.
8. My work ≈ that one is a strange one. I would have never said that a year ago. It has its up and down like any other job. However, this year feels diferent. Kids can have this effect you'd never imagined.


  1. University is incredibly difficult; if it was easy, everyone would do it.
