To me, happiness is...

Being a nurse working a 16 hour shift (my 3rd time this week) makes my thought process resort to the first tier of Maslow's hierarchy of needs.... Primarily one need in particular πŸ’€
  1. β€’
    SLEEP.
    To paraphrase my man Ron Swanson: "Dear everything: be sleep or be nothing."
  2. β€’
    REM cycles.
    Because no dream ever started with eyeballs fixated in one position.
  3. β€’
    Soft, cold pillows.
    I am getting goosebumps just thinking about this.
  4. β€’
    Sleeping with my fan on.
    Background noise and a cool breeze is how I fall asleep 362 days a year.... And the 3 remaining days are usually disassociated with my fan because I've fallen asleep drunk and forgot to turn it on. 😲🍸🍸🍸
