THINGS THAT BRING ME JOY

  1. When people sprint for their train and actually catch it
  2. When the English bulldog that lives in the apartment building over the bookstore where I work gets taken on a walk while I'm on a shift
    Bruno is the cutest dog I know
  3. Starting a brand-new stack of books
  4. Cracking open a really really cold Diet Coke
  5. When a friend tells me that something reminded them of me
    A friend texted this week to say a Mika song made her think of me and I was extremely flattered
  6. When a super athletic gym instructor's demands reach peak absurdity and you make eye contact with a fellow sufferer and you both giggle hysterically
  7. Singing the Pretty Little Liars theme song in the most deranged voice possible
