    Things that are Awesome

    This morning I got up at 4:30 (yes, in the am). That was not awesome.

    However, it made me think about things that are awesome. Sometimes it is the small things that are extra nifty and make you feel good.

    This morning I made awesome oatmeal. Now I know most people think oatmeal is the opposite of awesome. Heck, most people these days think oatmeal comes in an individual serving paper packet that you just add hot water to. No, no... that is barely oatmeal- it is more like artificially flavored sawdust. My oatmeal is steel cut bits of awesome to which I added a fresh banana, walnuts, maple syrup, brown sugar and a splash of milk. It was awesome and delicious.

    What things do you find awesome?

    I think I died when you started describing your oatmeal. That sounds awesome... my mother was the only one who made great oatmeal... although I can't hate on all those pre-packaged kinds. I had an Ocean spray flavor that was cranberries and pomegranates that was pretty good for only taking a few seconds to make.

    Things that I find awesome? Well I find a lot of things awesome... so how about I limit myself to one awesome thing per day...?

    That feeling you get when you've had a really busy day and finally get to sit down.

    I love this feeling! I have been helping out around my fathers house this year, since his kids are now 5 and 6 and my father and his wife work full time jobs. Which really feels like I am taking on a nanny job, but it's okay since I am happy that I can help, but it really is a lot of work. The feeling I'm talking about is when I've cleaned their house, done their laundry, picked the kids off the bus, done their homework with them, cooked dinner and get to finally crash! It's one of my favorite feelings. Kicking those shoes off, snuggling up in my favorite seat (in silence, oh how I love silence.) and coming to see what's going on in the world of WTF. THAT is an awesome feeling.
    And I hope you have not a single still moment.

    I absolutely agree. That moment of coming home and just sitting down (or laying down) is always fantastic.

    Oatmeal made me think of something that I find awesome. Parfaits. Specifically the granola on top of the parfait. I love it.

    Oh, and jazz music. Like, not blues or anything like that, but more of the Michael Buble/Frank Sinatra/Nat King Cole/Bing Crosby/Natalie Cole/Ella Fitzgerald type of jazz. It's probably the sexiest music out there. And it just makes me want to dance. I love when I'm listening to music and one of those songs comes on. (And Mozart, but that's a different story).

    The ache in your muscles the day after a really nice workout.

    Fuck, Utopia, that is making me want to go and make a bowl of oatmeal. We have some and haven't touched it in ages...

    Other awesome things:

    The early part of the weekend, when you're not starting to dread it's end.
    Your paycheck after daily overtime.
    Toes full of kitty fur.
    Being with someone who is just right.
    Swedish rap.
    Bubble tea, especially almond or matcha green milk tea.

    Being able to just sit with someone. Not talking. Not doing anything. Just sit there. And it doesn't matter. They don't care about the silence, and neither do you. Being able to fully trust someone enough that you don't feel the need to fill the silence.

    Your baby makes me so happy.

    ~~~

    My awesome for the day...

    Realizing you aren't broke. I love that feeling, especially when you are used to being broke... and then all of a sudden you look in the bank and their is enough money to pay bills, buy fun things and go out to eat. Damn. That is an awesome feeling.
    And I hope you have not a single still moment.

    I love when I check my bank account and realize that I am not completely broke. Always a good feeling.

    Also, fresh roasted peanuts are pretty awesome.

    I can agree with that above statement!

    My awesome contribution for the day...

    That feeling that lets you know someone is thinking about you. Even if it's not romantic, just a close bond. My favorite are knowing without them directly telling you. The usual being something jotted down on there facebook, or they can't seem to get a song stuck out of their head and saying it always makes them think of "someone". I love vague sentiments, so much so that it's what me and my drummer buddy call our collaborations. <3
    And I hope you have not a single still moment.

    Ugh, that is so awesome~~! I love when that happens.

    Awesome of the Day~

    Creating a character that you fall in love with. I mean, I usually make characters I enjoy but recently I started working on a character who has some serious substance. I love him.

    It is an awesome feeling to actually finish a project and like it. I am quite pleased with how my baby blanket turned out; it reminds me of an Andes Mint.





    Also, I totally agree, I love rediscovering music. It is always a good feeling when you are listening to music and you go... 'Wow, I remember this. This is great!'

    ----Edit----->


    Also, I love how everyone posts their feel good awesomness. This is a nice feel good sort of thread and makes me happy every day just popping in and reading it.

    It's awesome when you finally kill the centipede that has been stalking your room for days, making you afraid to sleep.

    Awesome: Find jeans that fit. I'm a very short person. I can find jeans that fit around the waist and thighs. But I'm short!

    My favorite thing has always been making an intelligent person laugh.
    And not in a slapstick "I did something stupid" sort of way.

    Turtles. I really love turtles even though I have been bitten by them many a time throughout my life. (It is a harrowing love affair, at best.)
    Recently, however, I realized once more how cute they are when my biology class got a pet box turtle. Currently he is allowed to amble about our classroom as he pleases, eating lettuce and bugs where he finds them. In the twenty-five percent of the time I'm not worried about accidentally stepping on Maxwell, he is ubelievably adorable. :o

    Awesome things of the day-

    Dollar items at Target during Halloween season. I now have glow in the dark skeleton socks. (I am a fan of the ridiculous sock- I own very few 'normal' socks.)

    When you get to share a movie or show you enjoy with someone else. And they like it.

    When you give up trying to make your hair perfect and just spend maybe five minutes on it and you get more compliments on your hair that day than on any other day that you spend forever on it.
