Half Full Friday

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list.  Thanks!)

I had a fun time at the BBQ last weekend!

I got lots of chocolate for Easter!  One can never have too much chocolate!

My dad seemed to really like his birthday present!

My neighbor mowed the front yard for me!

The Kick-Off for one of the committee's I volunteer on went really well last night!

I got the prize I won from Amber's live giveaway!

Next week is the last full week of classes.  I'm excited for summer but also really sad.  I had a really good first semester and I'm not ready to let go of it.  Everything must come to an end though and when it does, a new door opens.  For me, that door will be summer!  If we get one, that is!  This spring has mostly been cold and wet with a few days of warmth here and there.  I look at pictures like these...

...and I'm so jealous that I can't be there, enjoying the warmth of the sunshine.  Summer'll come though, I just have to be patient.  And get through finals.  When summer comes, it'll be all about the chi's.  And alcohol.  And reading for pleasure instead of for an assignment.  And sleeping in every day.  And, and, and...
