10 points of happiness

I am taking a cue from A Daisy Chain Dream and posting about 10 things that make me happy. I gave up pessimism for Lent, so this is perfect!
1. Friends. What would I even do without them?
(LK, Kim, Sam) New Year's Eve 2010
Summer parties at Penn State with Juli
2.Music. Even the sad songs can make me happy. Here are some of my all-time favorites.

3. Tea. I drink a lot of tea. Sometimes more than six cups a day. Black tea in the morning, Chai at work, Green at lunch, mint or fruity decaf in the evening. Its even better when I'm reading Austen novels (which also make me happy).

4. Bike rides. Catching a breeze in your face, quick and graceful. A good bike ride can make you feel like you are flying down the street.

Long Beach, L.I. in November
5. Fairy lights. They're sparkly and make everything look warm.
My bedroom at college
My room at my parents house

6. Food on sticks. Kebabs, candy apples, ice-pops. If I can dig up my favorite kebab recipe I will post it, its buried in a box of things for summer.

Do Better
7. Travelling. Planning a trip, trains, planes, cars, I love it all.
Sunset at Narita Airport, Japan (2009)
Wat Arun, Bangkok, Thailand (2009)
Sam, Lynn, Kim, and me waiting for our flight to London (2005)

Paris (2005)
8. Ice skating. I skated for 13 years and going skating always makes me so happy I'm smiling for days.
9. Twilight. I don't feel guilty, so it's not a guilty pleasure, but I'm always absurdly happy whenever my friend posts pics like this on my Facebook wall.
10. Getting mail. (I just got the most hilarious and wonderful postcard from Sam in Paris. Thank goodness my postman isn't squeamish).

So what makes you happy?
