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.  And then come back here and tell me what made you happy!

~I'm happy because...
I got some new followers!  Thank you and welcome!

I got some extra hours in at work this week (and for the last two weeks!)!

Starting today, I have five glorious days off!  I see lots of quality chihuahua time ahead!

There are 17 participants for Christmas in July, the most ever!  And due to a last minute entrant, I get to join in this year too!  

I went to a movie last weekend!  We saw The Heat, which was really funny.

We're mostly out of triple digit temps this week!  It's still in the high 90s*, but you can definitely feel the difference in the heat.
For some reason, my internet connection at home hasn't been wanting to work properly the last couple of days.  Thank goodness for free time at work, because otherwise I wouldn't have any computer time at all!  And that just ain't gonna happen!  It shows that it's hooked up and running, but my computer can't seem to connect to it.  I unplugged it last night for a second and plugged it back in again, but it didn't help.  I'll fight with it some more this afternoon.
After a specific incident that happened this season, I decided that I for sure was not going to continue volunteering for the agency that I've worked with over the past 5 years.  It's kind of bittersweet because it really is for a great cause.  It's time to move on though, so I'm doing just that!  Knowing I've done virtually nothing to participate in campus activities and that employers really look for that kind of thing on a resume, I've decided to join the Student Assembly, which is part of the Student Government.  I'm not really sure yet what that entails or what I'm getting myself into, but am looking forward to it!  Hopefully it'll be really good experience too!

Hi Sprinkles - finally getting to catch up on your blog! Looks like you've been busy - oh, I'm off to the cinema tonight too - for the first time in ages - to see WOLVERINE!! :-) So excited! :-)

That's a good idea, joining the Student Assembly - hope you have fun!

And enjoy your time off with Shiver & Chico! :-)
