The Tag of Happiness

The awesome Bailey created and tagged me for this gloriously cheerful thingummy, which I had a ton of fun filling out. Thank you, Bailey!!

Take the banner and put it in your post
List as many things as you want in each category
Come up with more categories if you wish
Tag as many people as you want
So let's get started.

1. Some songs that make you happy.

There are kind of a lot of these. Bah, who am I kidding, there is a huge long list of these and I could never list them all. But we'll give it a shot anyway. (And if you are by any chance interested in listening to any of these songs, I know for a fact you can find them all on Spotify.)

"Yellow Shoes" by Gracie Schram
"Taylor, the Latte Boy" by Kristen Chenowerth
"Love You Like the Movies" by Anthem Lights
"Top of the World" by Anthem Lights
"Loser Like Me (Glee Season 5 Version)" by Glee Cast
"Unbelievable" by Owl City

And of course the number one (which is the only one on this list that you absolutely MUST listen to):
"Life's a Happy Song" by Bret McKenzie and Kermit the Frog
(And yes, it has to be this cover, because Lindir. And Kermit the Frog.)

Admittedly, "Taylor, the Latte Boy", "Love You Like the Movies", "Loser Like Me", and "Unbelievable" make me laugh more than they actually make me happy, but I think it's close enough.

2. Some books that make you happy.

This one is harder, because most of my favourite books are not the fluffy, comfortable sort of books that make you happy. Most of them are more the sort of book that rips your heart out with a spoon and then squishes it. But then, I guess that's still okay, because:
Sally Sparrow is my spirit animal.
So, having assured myself that it's not cheating and therefore satisfied my conscience, I must of course mention my favourite book ever--
Also, for a book that isn't sad,
Take that back, it is sad.

3. Some foods that make you happy.

Ooooh. Food is good. Sooo good. But obviously chocolate wins this one.
Also, there are several foods that are part of my family's tradition which give me aaaaaallll the good vibes, including:

Home made (sashimi free) sushi. We eat it every New Years, because my grandma was Japanese.
Home made peirogies. (I still don't know how to spell that.) We eat these every Christmas and other special family times, because my other Grandma was Ukranian/Polish.
Home made doughnuts. We eat these the first snowfall of every winter.

Have I ever mentioned that food is really important? There are certain foods that just make me feel awesome.

4. Some words that make you happy.

There are a lot of these, and oddly enough, they are mostly names of trees. Like lombardy, birch, chestnut, poplar, maple, and beech. I also like the way analyse, glamorous, enchantment, and venn diagram roll off the tongue.

5. Some scents that make you happy.

I have to say it again-- chocolate! Also the smell of:
  • Freshly baked bread.
  • Newly mown grass.
  • Clean towels.
  • Lavender.
  • Rain at night.
  • A campfire.

6. Some random things that make you happy.

  • Moonlight.
  • The ocean (or water in general).
  • Family vacations and holidays.
  • Forgotten money, candy, or even shirts randomly found in my dresser drawers.
  • My lovely little Chromebook. (It's so tiny and adorable.)
  • Orange leaves in the fall.
  • People.
  • RORY.
So there you have some things that make me happy. I tag A.M.AneeqahAnnika, and Lily, but don't feel obligated to do it if you don't want to, and if I didn't tag you and you want to do it, please, feel free!!


  1. Thanks for tagging me! It was a lot of fun. My post will be up in a day or two. :D

    1. You're welcome! I can't wait to see what makes you happy!!

  2. "Life is a taco! Life is pizza!" -music stops abruptly- xD

    Ah, this post made me feel happy just reading it. Love Anthem lights. Love the smell of rain and mown grass. Love fall leaves. Also, your family traditions gave me warm fuzzies.

    [my apologies if this posts twice, something went wacky ^.^]

    1. Ehehe-- I adore that song to death--

      Oh, I'm glad. :) It made me happy filling it out. YOU LIKE ANTHEM LIGHTS???!!! They are so amazing and I love them so much. High five on all the happy things! Aren't family traditions the best? :)

  3. Aaaaahhhh Rory YESS!!!!!!

    1. YESSSS!!! RORY!!!! *cuddles Rory* *whispers* He just makes me so happy...

  4. Thanks for the tag! Only, you took all my ideas already... XD

    1. You're welcome! Haha... I was afraid that might happen. Bailey had already taken some of mine...

  5. Gemma! Thank you so much for participating and for being so nice! I enjoyed reading your answers. I can agree with many of them. Like chocolate. Chocolate all the way. Also, your family sounds awesome! I love family traditions like that (especially traditions that involve food...). :P
    Again, thanks a bunch!

    1. You're welcome! I had so much fun filling it out! Chocolate is the best. And there's something so special about food and family together-- maybe it's because they both start with an F? :P
      Thank you for tagging me!


I adore comments! Just keep it clean and respectful...please no profanity and while I respect people's opinions and love a good argument, simply bashing my post is obviously not appreciated. :)
