We have the whinging thread in 101 and the minor angst thread here, how about a thread for small things that have happened we're happy about?

For example, I just had a lovely evening with my little sister and this random German guy's family, making barbecue, drinking beer, playing with their kids. I don't think of myself as someone who likes kids but it was just a lovely evening.

I made a nice curry and it cheered me up. Unfortunately I've eaten it now.
Cooking always helps clear my mind and cheer me up, it's therapeutic and the one thing I can count on to raise my mood a bit.

I've been listening to a lot of The Kinks lately, very heart-warming music, if a little melancholy. ShaNgri-la and Strangers especially make me feel so warm.

Started learning keyboard again, there's always something so satisfying about those few bars where sight reading isn't a problem at all.

You only made one portion? Next time multiply everything by 5 and freeze the rest.

The full moon was really bright last night and I stared at it in wonder for a long time.

Girlfriend is coming back after working a year abroad, far far away. We're proud that we've kept things afloat for so long.
|>>|| No. 25110
The thought of her cheating is obviously not pleasant, but given that she isn't like that, and that she lived in a rural Asian village teaching English minimised chances of this happened. I visited twice, and I could tell she was, as we would say, "frothing at the gash". The male friends she had were either much older than her, or were in relationships themselves. There was this Canadian lad who was the only bother, but he had a girlfriend himself.
I realised if I acted like a petulant child every time he was mentioned, it would do us no favours, so I just dealt with it. Mind you, I feel if the tables were turned, she'd have an issue with it. But that being said I think relationships should have a healthy smattering of jealousy and possessiveness.

Czerny Op. 599 and a bog standard book that explains, rudimentarily I add, why Maj is so and Min is so, why chords are such etc. - with scales it's funny looking at largely the same thing but being able to translate into sound something different. Try learning a scale and doing any of Czerny's 599.

I have no friends or life outside working a shit retail job and getting high. After a breakup last year, I've been struggling with depression. Slowly moving on from being a wingy twat, it's on the mend.
Refused to take the anti depressants that I've been prescribed, being properly diagnosed was a bit of a wake up call though.
I Google'd "how not to be depressed" or something a little while back. A stable diet and exercise was mentioned. I run 3 miles daily and do 15 mins of cardio.
Yesterday, half way through my run, I nodded to a woman that I passed. She smiled nervously back, looked quite shy. I kept running, but that made me pretty happy. I have the potential to make someone feel shy. Usually I'm the shy one around lasses.
|>>|| No. 25120
Keep it up lad, a good diet and a bit of fresh air does wonders. I also recommend starting a hobby were you have the opportunity to interact with people. A mate of mine started archery after going through pretty much the same as yourself, and all I can say is that he's pretty content.

Despite my anxiety causing a minor car accident (thread about it on here) late last year, my insurance renewal has gone down. I've been killing myself all year over it so I guess I can now just put it down to experience.

>I have no friends or life outside working a shit retail job and getting high
Can I just ask, in a rather unrelated matter to the rest of your post, how you stay supplied despite the "no friends or life" part? I hardly smoke any more, but back when I did, the whole situation of making sure I always had a ready source of weed pretty much was my social life.

I bought an/a ukulele. Does anyone know of any good books on how to play it, or of any other resources? Youtube tutotials are disjointed. I've never played a musical instrument before.

These days, it's not difficult to get deliveries from the darknet or find a hookup through social media. The internet has created an all-you-can-eat drug buffet.
|>>|| No. 25129
Thanks mate, I was actually thinking of doing something of the sort. There a running club for begginers in my area, sounds like the social aspect has helped your mate quite a bit. Will give it a bash for sure.
What a blessing lad, always nice when things like that take you by suprise, like finding a tenner in an old pair of jeans.
Darknet mate, I used to deal a little and buy from chavvy blokes. Getting mugged for the second time in my life led me to quit the whole thing. Lost all my "friends" in the process, for the most part drug addicts that I tolerated because I knew nobody else. Still got some savings in Bitcoin, I slowly spend it month by month on weed and the occasional ten strip of acid. Although it's been a while since I've taken any.

If you haven't read Patrick McKenzie's blog, drop everything and read through his archives. The man is a genius when it comes to growing small online businesses.

I fancy some girl I was working with only for this week, which is nice because I haven't really felt that way for a long time. Thought I'd grown out of it but maybe there's yet hope for a naively optimistic romance.
Unfortunately I cocked up and didn't get her number and probably won't see her again. But it was nice while it lasted.

She changed her 'cover' picture to match mine, which is silly but makes me feel warm.

Entire Green Wing box set for three quid from a charity shop; get in.
|>>|| No. 25481
4OD is absolute dog mess. It's full of ads, poor quality and mandatory signing in, also the box set has extras. I'll never watch those extras, but that's beside the point.
I have torrented tonnes of stuff, illegally so (peer-to-peer sharing isn't necessarily illegal), but now I don't have to worry about keeping Green Wing on an external hard drive that might end up knackered or lost, and have something to put in the cupboards on my telly stand.

I've ended up at a cosy as fuck place in the mountains, where for some reason there is a ridiculous amount of illegal substances. And I was just told "If you want any beer or wine, just take it". There is a cellar full of wine. I think this is where I die, lads.

It's amazing how mundane small talk with a pleasant woman who seems interested in you suddenly makes the world a less dark place.

All the old woman behind me in the queue at Lidl bought was 20 bags of mint humbugs. She didn't look like she had any teeth.

I whittled down my bookmarks from about 9500 to around 300 organised into neat folders. Now to organise my porn collection.

My cat's been going mental regularly at this time of night and he finally properly went for my ankles in a painful way. I guess he's bored so I put some holes and dry kibble in a plastic bottle, he's now very happily occupied.

How do you organise them? I am constantly worrying about the best way to remember and organise bookmarks on multiple computers. Tell me something nice about that.

I'm going to go to the Freshers event today. I'm going to make friends. They won't even notice my odd voice or complete lack of personality. By February of next year I will be living independently and will be dating a woman who I might even marry, should I wish it, just as soon as she's seen what a fully grown-up-bloke-man I can be.
All of this and more will come to pass under the guidance of Our Goddess Eris.

>They won't even notice my odd voice or complete lack of personality.
That's par for the course, you're a fresher. You've all got odd voices and no personalities. Speaking as a former mature student, you're all absolutely ludicrous specimens. If you don't have a ridiculous self-imposed nickname, blue hair and some crap patter about your gap yah, then you're well above average in the "not being a bellend" stakes.
>dating a woman who I might even marry
Definitely don't do that. Settle for someone for cuffing season if you want, but get yourself back on the market in April. Don't squander your prime shagging years on the first girl who shows any sort of interest. You're surrounded by nubile and slightly naive girls who are intoxicated by independence and Yaegerbombs. Make the most of it.
>a fully grown-up-bloke-man
Ha! You will look back on your university years with a deep, profound sense of embarrassment; if you don't, you've made a terrible mistake. Students are supposed to be annoying little gobshites who cut about town in a leopard-print onesie, drink cider out of a welly boot and have cringeworthy conversations about Sartre and house music. If you don't make a complete tit of yourself, you'll miss out on most of the fun. Embrace the cringe.
|>>|| No. 25673
Good luck lad. I wouldn't rely on the Goddess to provide you with anything other than chaos though. That is more her purview. Maybe if you were planning to drop acid before going.
