    A 3AM thread for me, a different time for you. Anyhow, I thought it'd be interesting to hear other people articulate their personal views on what constitutes happiness to them. But why not, instead of simply just stating what makes you happy, elated, etc, use this thread to bloviate about the "why" of your happiness.

    I'll start: Happiness is what I feel whenever I come home from college for breaks and whatnot, and am greeted at the front door by my Labrador & twin Corgis. There is almost nothing better to me than to be bludgeoned by a wagging tail of a friend (Humans need an expression to approximate the wagging of a tail in my opinion--a smile just doesn't quite match up).

    Why am I happy? As Catullus said: "Happiness is a warm puppy."

    A lot of simple things make me happy. Being alone and having free time to draw or read or do whatever I want. But what makes me happiest is just to be with a lot of my friends and family, without any problems, just all of us together having a good time. Also, whenever I can do something for someone, or when something I do makes someone else happy, it is a great feeling. So yeh, all of that stuff makes me exceedingly Happy :D

    Freedom and anticipation makes me happiest. I like knowing on Friday afternoon that I don't have to do anything for the rest of the day, or tomorrow, or Sunday. I like not having worries. And not having things to worry you makes you happy, at least for me.

    Happiness= after you work so hard on something and finishing it(art work, work in general) and it looks awesome, Compliments, knowing that people genuinely care for me, Talking to friends, helping people, being with the person I love, watching talking about anime, being on the computer, oh and stormy days, I love the rain!

    There are a lot of things that make me happy. I'll say my one thing that makes me happy and go. Talking with good friends or old friends. I only have two left standing (old friends), I don't always get to talk to them, but the few times we do talk is very comforting in some ways.

    When I have time all alone and have no responsibilities, no homework, in short nothing bothersome. I just love that feeling of complete relaxation.

    Family, Friends:barf, and the knowledge of knowing that I'm not a loser.


    And for all you material people: "You can never get enough of what you don't need to make you happy".

    Good day.

    Discovering something by myself makes me happy, it might sound shallow but pretty bright things make me happy too, happy people make me happy, sunny places make me happy, lights in dark places make me happy...

    Sounds like a lot but it's only a few in this depressing world of ours.

    Just being with my family makes me happy because my family does silly things sometimes, and I guess having my dogs (one is a dachsund and the other is a mixed wrotweiler) following me around in a beautiful day at the park is enough for me.:kkbook
