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 on your own blog.  Thanks!)

I saw a butterfly the other day and it made me smile!

My mom had a wonderful vacay and made it home safely!

My mom bought me some beautiful flowers!

I may have a fun giveaway lined up!  It'll be a little bit before it's ready though.  

I got a free cappuccino on Wednesday and it was soooooooo good - S'Mores flavored!

Don't furget to sign up for my annual Doggone Dog Swap.  I got 2 more participants this week and there's still one or two of you who said you'd email me that I haven't heard from.  You don't want to miss out on the fun!

The chi's and I were late to the pawty but we pawticipated in Sarge's "the Nickname Game" on Monday.  For the next week, Shiver will be called Shiverton, Chico  will be known as Chicohuahua and Scamp is now Scamperon.  Thanks for playing along with us and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

I had an interview for an office assistant position on Wednesday.  It was for the Business and Economics department.  The interview went well and ladies were both very friendly.  Unfortunately, I got a call yesterday morning saying I didn't get the job.  She asked me to consider applying again when I have more economics classes under my belt.  Um, it's an office assistant position, how would having more econ classes help me do that particular job? I'm pretty sure answering the phone and making photocopies wouldn't require any special classes.  

 I'm really considering dropping Business and Econ as my major.  I absolutely HATED micoreconomics with every fiber of my being.  Thanks to a very generous grading curve and extra credit, I managed to pull a B-.  This class was part of what made this semester such a nightmare.   Plus, I'm still struggling with the lower math classes.  This major requires a LOT of upper math classes and I worry I won't be able to pass them.  Guess I'll need to do some more research and figure out what to do with my life.

Hey Wylde One!
Wow, you had a grrrreat week! I hope you get more and more for your Swap. Butterflies and flowers always make me wag my tail too. As for school, my Mom says to hang in there. A general business degree is good for all sorts of different jobs and they don't usually end up really needing that higher math anyway. Puters do most of that now! BOL
Grr and Woof,
Sarge A Licious

EEK, I am so sad but I may have to skip this year's swap. We are having all these house repair issues and my assistant needs to cut way back on expenses.

I am sorry!

Your pal, Pip

It must have been great to see your mum back from her vacation!
Sorry to hear you didn't get the job, another will come along soon, I'm sure.
Maths was my worst subject at school, I'm lucky to add a shopping list up, LOL.

I always like your feelgood posts, they remind me to think of the good things in my life too. I am trying to get in the habit of doing it even if not reminded :) Have a good week!

Dear sprinkles, hope you are having a lovely Memorial Day weekend.;)
I am happy you saw a butterfly, I see many of them these days too. I still admire you going back to school, and always will.;)
