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'm happy because...
I got some more spring cleaning done this week!

We went several days in a row with no rain!  And then it really came down.

I enjoyed a lovely Red Velvet Cupcake Cappuccino yesterday!  I ate it with a red velvet cupcake -- just because I could! 

Thanks to Sarge, this is my most successful Doggone Dog Swap yet!  Still need one more participant to swap with Shelby so let me know if you're interested!

I had a job shadowing session!  Actually, that was last week but I forgot to include it so I'm carrying it over into this week because I really was/am happy about it!

I have an interview for an internship next week!  Unpaid, but good experience.

Sadly, this has been a rather uninteresting week.  After the stress of last week though, I'll gladly take it!  Mostly I spent my days close to home catching up on reading, bad tv, spring cleaning, reading blogs and anything else I could find to amuse myself with for longer than 5 minutes.  I even took my dad's beagle for a walk!
 
I've decided I officially miss school.  Never thought I'd ever say that!  I was sooooooo busy this past semester and always felt like every spare moment should've been spent focusing on school and that I never had any free time for myself.  Now I have an excess amount of free time on my hands and I'm not sure what to do with myself.  I've been half-heartedly looking for work only because I don't know what will happen with my dad and I want to make sure I can be there for him if I need to.  Before I know it though, summer will be over and I'll be back to complaining I miss it.  :)

Happy Friday & June, Sprinkles!!!

I've been 'Spring' cleaning for 4 months now.. haha.. in the hopes of moving mostly! Thank goodness I'm 'renting' from now on. Houses are too stressful for 'this' single woman; at least the buying and selling parts. :-)

Have a Wonderful Friday and Weekend my friend!! Enjoy your 'rainless' days whenever you can!
Hug,
Coreen XOXO

That's great that you have an interview for an internship--experience is important in any field! Good luck with it.

I'm still excited about the dog swap!

My mom is drooling about that red velvet cupcake and cappuccino! If you haven't already found someone for your swap, sign me up!

Your pal, Pip

Zona said...

OMG - you made my mom drool with talk about red velvet cupcakes!! I would sign up for the swap but considering the craziness here, I should skip this one. How often do you have them?

Happy Half Full Friday!

Wags,
