    Smile Something that makes me happy is...

    We have a few threads going at the minute that seemed to be dedicated to things that annoyed us - mostly the Room 101 thread. It's great to have a way to vent, I agree - but I thought it would be a nice balance to have somewhere to share things that make us smile, whether real things (like cheesecake) or silly things that have happened to us, or favorite songs... just... a thread for niceness?





    Something that makes me happy is...


    I get the same train home from work almost every night, and I've got to recognise a lot of my fellow passengers who all also get the same train almost every night. There's one guy who I see a lot. We're at the very British stage of not actually talking, but nodding and half smiling to indicate we spend an hour or so a day in fairly close proximity and we do recognise each other.

    OK, nothing too exciting about that, so far.

    But... whenever he is on the same train as me, he is met at the station by (I assume) wife/partner and daughter. Every time. The wife/gf/whatever is nothing special, very girl-next-doorish, pretty in a non-spectacular way, but she looks so nice I want to talk to her. The little girl - well, omg how gorgeous is she? She's just toddling, but the mum doesn't usually let her try (train platform = not best place, I guess). She has the most amazing cherubic golden curls, and round face, and the sweetest smile. She is dressed in a variety of things, usually quite cute girly little frocks in pinks or purples, but the other day she was in little pink denim dungarees Epic cuteness! She doesn't do much talking, but the other day she was saying "spade. spade. spade. spade." I have no idea why, it was a little random.

    The thing is, I look forward to seeing her, and her family. She's adorable all on her own, but I also love the way that the two of them meet him every night, take the time to walk up the hill to the station. He gets off the train and goes straight for them, every night, with a huge smile on his face to see them, he picks the little girl up, kisses his wife, and clearly just could not be happier. He seems crazy about his wife and kid, and it makes me smile to see them together. I don't know them from Adam, have never spoken to them and probably never will. But I walk home with a smile on my face and feeling a little bit less tired every night that I see them. Seeing people like that makes me happy



    So what random things in your day make you happy?

    You truly are a big large soppy socks :p

    For me standing in front of and operating, a large sound system during production rehearsals or sound check when you know you've nailed it rings my bell.
    Showtime is equally fun, especially if the crowd is having a good time too, but can be disturbed by the punter who thinks he knows it all asking you what 'x' piece of gear does, mostly when you're grappling with an errant feed from somewhere.

    As for your experiences, I feel a 'Brief Encounter' moment here.

    Hmm...

    Soppy:

    Theres a cafe in the park up the road, and its very, very easy to get on the roof of it. Me and a few friends often go up there and just lay down and stare at clouds. No-one says a word but its pretty fun

    Not-So-Soppy:
    Crysis Warhead (its a game)
    Sneaking up on people and blowing their heads of point blank with a shotgun just gives me a fuzzy feeling.

    well somthing that truly lightens my heart is when my mate or even someone i dont know has been upset, and through talk and help i finnaly get to see a smile through thier sadness. it makes me feel so good when i know ive made a emotional differnce like that.

    and also when the sun is out and bright, its warming rays the open blue sky and the light cool breeze. nothing can compare to how good it feels to just stand and absorb the days good vibe.

    well those are my main things i look forward to

    thankies Df for the brill sig

    Crawling into bed after a long, tiring day. No better feeling.

    sat above my mates garage, listening to music playing on his ps3/wii, just having a laugh.
    its a great way to wind down from a stressful college week.

    i don't like the feeling of waking up the day after however.

    Chatting at night to my female friends and getting lots of huggs and hwoo same as you mate, seeing you have made a difference by helping someone in need.
    "Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take."

    For me, it is talking to a few special people. Just speaking to them, about anything, makes me happier

    Also, this song

    Waking up to those special texts. Not as good as waking up with them, but still makes me just glow.

    Sitting down, reading a good book with a glass of wine listening to some tunes.

    This song also makes me smile.

    Ps. Jarre - Male friends can give hugs too
