The Happiness Tag

August 7, 2017 — 17 Comments

I was tagged in this by my friend Rylie, but she didn’t want her blog linked because she writes about very personal subjects so I’m afraid I can’t do that! But thank you for the nomination either way, I really appreciate it.


The rules for this tag

  • List five things that makes you happy
  • Share five songs that makes you happy
  • Tag at least five bloggers that makes you happy

What makes me happy

  1. My cats. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They are always there if I need someone to vent to (even though they can’t talk back, I still talk to them about anything I need to). They are always there if I need something to hold, something to cuddle with to cheer me up. I love them more than anything in this world. They say cats are selfish but mine are far from it.
  2. Books. I love being able to read. Being able to escape to another world for a little while. Same goes for video games. Escapism is very much a real thing for me and a lot of the time it happens without me even noticing.
  3. Being able to connect with people all over the world. I live in a place with very few people and meeting new people is a difficult task. That is why I am so grateful for having the internet, being able to connect with others without having to travel to a place to do so. I guess ‘without restrictions’ is what I meant to say.
  4. Nature. Nature makes me happy. I love being outside, I love exploring the woods, walking through fields, picking the occasional berry as I walk past them. Nature is wonderful and the fresh air can always make you feel better. (Apart from during the pollen season, I always feel like death then).
  5. Being organized, that always makes me happy. I hate being messy, I hate not having things neatly put in place. Having a clean and organized home is my favorite feeling. It really helps me with feeling accomplished in life. Doesn’t matter how messy my head is as long as my home is clean.

Five songs that makes me happy

I don’t really have any overly joyful happy songs, so I’ll share some that makes me feel content, makes me feel wholesome. I think I have shared all of these before, but my favorites rarely change.

  1. Pvris – Half
  2. Meg Myers – Motel
  3. Blink 182 – I Miss you
  4. Highly Suspect – Bath Salts
  5. Chaos Chaos – Do you feel it

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate up to 10 other bloggers of your choice.
  • Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.

 

First off, thank you to Nilsa over at PinkComa for nominating me for this one, I really appreciate it! You should definitely go check out her blog.

Seven facts about me:

  • I really want to just pack my stuff and drive to a new country to settle down there, but sadly it’s not that easy.
  • I never really have a need for social interaction in real life, I don’t need to see other people on a daily basis. I guess I’m like some extreme form of introverted.
  • I have probably owned around ten cats in total in my life, I have three now and I love them to bits. One is 14 or 15, one is 12 and the youngest is 10 years old. The two youngest are half brothers, they had the same mother. All of our cats are technically rescues, their mum was a rescue we found in the woods.
  • I’ve been slowly phasing out meat from my life, still stuck on fish and fowl but it’s getting there.
  • I used to both smoke and drink a lot. I quit smoking in December 2014, I haven’t been drinking other than an occasional spiked lemonade (occasional as in like once a year) for years. I just don’t like the taste of alcohol anymore.
  • I love learning new languages, I’m currently trying to learn Russian, it’s really difficult, especially since the Cyrillic alphabet shares a lot of symbols with our own but they have different sounds.
  • I’m not really straight, but I have never told my family. My brother came out as gay and my father shunned him, I’m terrified of it ever happening to me too.

I was nominated for this by Cassandra in her post over at HappinessInLipstick! Thank you so much, I really appreciate that you thought of me for this one. I really enjoy doing these little challenges.

The questions Cassandra asked:

  1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
    Only one thing? Well, I guess I would go with Pizza because you can make it  in so many different ways and use so many different toppings for it!
  2. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 5 things what would they be?
    A water filter, a lighter or matches, a swiss army knife, a flashlight and tinned food.
  3. Why did you start blogging?
    Because I wanted a place where I could write down my thoughts! And I wanted to share my opinions on products and other things. I’m really happy that I did because I have met so many wonderful people.
  4. Tell us one thing that is unique about you.
    I have a rare skin disease called Diffuse Systemic Sclerosis, that’s kinda unique, right?
  5. Wheres your favorite place to go?
    My favorite place to go is England.. Or Scotland.. I guess the UK as a whole! The nature is wonderful, it’s fairly cheap, the beer is good and they have so much allergy friendly food.

My questions for my nominees:

  1. If you had to choose just one make up product to wear for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
  2. What would you say is your main goal for this year?
  3. If you could go back in time to change one thing, what would it be?
  4. Where do you see yourself in ten years?
  5. What is your favorite thing to blog about?

Day 11. What was your favorite childhood Christmas present?

I got him in the summer of 2005, but he was intended to be a Christmas present ♥ He is now 11 and a half years old and I love him so much.

Day 12. What are you grateful for this Christmas?

I am grateful for the support from my friends and family, I’m grateful that i have a home to celebrate Christmas in. I’m grateful for everything my grandmother did for us before passing away. I’m grateful for you guys who are always here.. Thank you. I could probably continue writing forever, but that wouldn’t be much fun to read at all!

What are you grateful for this Christmas?
