annwfyn: (mood - dandelion thoughts)
Random post of the day, because I was thinking about this. Sometimes I'm moderately snarky about the claims that Scotland is some kind of Utopia and I think I wind up misrepresenting myself as a result.

So, as a spontaneous one off, five things I love about this country. Because Scotland has, overall, been exceptionally kind to me and I do love it here. I just compulsively argue with people when I think they're not quite right. It's a curse. I need help.

annwfyn: (Misc - journey)
I was told ages ago that by thinking positive thoughts you can retrain your brain. It's like a reset. I'm often not good at this, and today the world feels particularly grim. But I think it's good to focus.

So, I'm listing three things I like about me (because I'm feeling particularly useless), three things I like about my life (because it feels very out of control and overwhelming), three things I like about today (which will get me off the sofa), and three things that make me feel optimistic about the world in general (because god knows, there's enough to feel bad about).

You should all do that too.

annwfyn: (Mood - winter melancholy)
I just saw Iron Man.

Apologies to those I was with. I was in a bleak mood, and therefore became Dark and Brooding (tm). I'm trying to sort out a load of junk in my head. I have a lot of insane emo-crap that I could bore you with, but tonight I shall spare you.

Instead I shall list five things in this world that makes me cheerful.

I don't suppose anyone else feels like telling me about the five random things that you find yourself being cheered by when you remember they are in the world?

  • I have new sneakers from New Look. They are black canvas, covered in many brightly coloured stars, with white rubber toes - they're like converse trainers with more stars. They were £8, and look deeply cheerful on my feet.


  • I spent this morning running around in pixelated world, collecting small imaginary pets. Or, to be more precise, I now have two new shiney pets in World of Warcraft. I have a chicken and a rabbit. I know this is sad, but strangely, I can live with that.


  • I have been wearing a gorgeous, edible scent all day. I am wearing 'Jack', by the Black Phoenix Alchemy Laboratory, and it smells of pumpkins, butterscotch, and warm autumn nights. I'm not sure what I can use the scent for - it's not a sexy evening scent, or a summery afternoon scent, or a comforting 'cuddle me' scent - but it's nice and it makes me feel all warm inside.


  • I got to chat to my li'l sis for an hour on the phone today, which was lovely, and I found out that my not-quite-brother-in-law is beginning to get interviews for proper 3D modelling work. This is fab, for he is very talented, very hard working, and really deserves it.


  • I have a brand new DVD - Blood & Chocolate - which is the film adaption of one of my favourite books. Maybe it will be a thing of awful and hideousness, but right now I'm still in that stage where I can have Hope (tm).


What are your happy thoughts for the weekend?
