Today I decided to write about only happy things. My head feels super clear today and this is going to be my weapon against major boo-boos. I asked quite a lot of people their happiness feels and these are the responses. I advise you to not read it like some random listicle but rather try and enjoy whatever applies to you. :)
It's long but strong. XD

Baby elephants.
Potty after a long time. Okay fine, relieving yourself after a long time.

Finally one-upping your sibling or at least finally getting through their thick skin, just enough to annoy them.
