Opposite of Pet

Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

Opposite of Pet

Opposite of Pet Peeves

I know I have a lot of little things that really annoy me, but lately I've been realizing I have just as many little things that really make me happy-- like the feeling of my face after I wash it, or when dogs with docked tails wag, or when you can see the shafts of sunlight coming through the window...

post those little things here!

A run in the woods and the smell of a fresh book

when the light hits your drik just riiight..so perfect.

Clear water...like glass.

When my room is clean.

Licking honey of the spoon.

the smell of pines

when the bus comes as soon as I get to the stop

downpours when the rain isn't too cold 

people's pronouns being respected 

crunchy fall leaves

Nights with stars

The mornings before school in spring, and spring in general actually

Seeing the trains that go past my school (the one and only highlight of PE)

Superfiltered water...the way it's almost sweet, it's so clear

cats letting me rub their fluffy marshmallow tummies without biting my hand off

a clear, dark, cold night with lots of stars

when a video game character's advice actually helps

finally getting that Shine Sprite (lol probably no one here knows that those are)

Hanging out with my irl best friend (or any one friend. Multiple friends at once... no)

when it's just a little hotter than perfect, but there's a sprinkler running, and clear blue sky, and bees flying around the flowers. And it's usually pretty close to my birthday when that happens. 

and finally, 

being on the CB :D

The sound of nothing but rain hitting my windows on a cold afternoon.

Rainy days.

The cold wind against my face when I'm on my grandparents farm.

Like Reuby, a fluffy cat belly.

Cold weather.

Weather storms.

Swimming in a slightly chilly pool during the hot morning.

@Tsuki, this is such a good thread idea! :)

-the sound of rain on the roof when I'm going to sleep

-the feeling of a warm towel when I get out of the shower

-when I'm writing a story, the sight and feeling of filling up blue-lined notebook paper with pencilled letters

-certain words and names; Zanzibar; rosewood; satin

-getting a letter from my pen pal

Here are some things I love:

> The crunch of fluffy snow covering a layer of ice/hard-packed snow, and the satisfying sound that stomping in slush makes

> How fluffy and friendly puppies can be, plus the adorable little things (like cute little habits and mannerisms) they do naturally. It's kinda funny when you see someone do the same things; really gives a whole new meaning to "puppy-like." :D 

> Reaching peak productivity at a ridiculous hour of the night, and the quiet satisfaction of getting stuff done while everyone else is sleeping

> Taking the time to reorganise your living space, and having everything slot in perfectly

> The look of a fully-filled-out notebook; flipping through the pages and seeing words crammed onto every line, the margins packed with little doodles and notes or reminders 

> When someone gets all sleepy and their speech gets kinda funny, and then they lean their head against you >///W///<

> Getting home after an even and looking at yourself in the mirror, all made-up and only looking slightly worn despite the length of the event, and you realuse your makeup looks better (like really good) when its slightly faded like this and omg are you actually HOT-

> Hearing someone gush about something you really like (especially if it's obscure) and then you agree and you both freak out when you realise you both love said thing

> When the banter is just so nice and quippy. Like the rhythm of casual conversation is perfect and everyone's just enjoying themselves for real. :)

> The lonesome, quiet, cool atmosphere of night. Like, you don't feel lonely exactly, just alone and free and something in your stomach flutters for some reason and you just have this intense, inexplicable longing to explore something, anything-            But you have a life to attend to, and you really can't afford to be late tomorrow, so you curl up (preferably near an open window) and get comfy and warm. Then you begin to drift off, mind abuzz with thoughts and inspiration, but somehow it's not distracting and doesn't bother you or stress you out at all -- it just is -- and so you fall asleep under the cool breath of the moon, melting into the embrace of darkness and the dreamspace.

Ooh, fun!


-SnOw, because we never get it

- My stuffed animals

-I'd say fuzzy cat belly but facts: I've never touched a cat before! Plus I'm allergic...

-When your tape isn't crooked or there's no air bubbles


-When you finally get access to CB after so many months of parental controls and unplanned hiatuses

-When you meet someone with a similar personality to you

-When your mom says you can eat junk food, like cAnDy, or cHiPs

-When you haven't been told to clean your room yet and it's as messy as ever

-When you get new pens

-When you finally decide on your profile picture

-When class is over

-SuMmErRrRrRr because no school!!!

-When your desk is messy and you actually clean it and it just FEELS SO CLEAN!

-When you finish a drawing that you're proud of

-WhEn yOuR mOm mAkEs yOuR fAvOrItE fOoD!!! It's that feeling where you scarf it down. My, food looks weird like that: fOoD. It's funny. 


That's enough of positivity in my life!! CB is one of the best things in my life! 


-When your Captcha says a word! Captcha just said <zozzt>. That's it. I'm naming it Zozzt!!!!!

~ Small towns and the individual vibe that each one has

~ Cloudy days where you know it's going to rain, and you're just looking at the ombre sky and waiting as the smell of it drifts in on the wind

~ Snowstorms! Especially when it's at night and you know there's not gonna be school the next day :)

~ Working with new employees at my grocery store; I get to talk to them and help them out and they're usually pretty cool!

~ When you listen to a song and it brings back this fleeting feeling of the time when you listened to it a lot; the smells and what you did and how the weather felt

~ When a cat you don't know walks up to you of its own accord and demands to be petted

~ As Jaybells said, filled notebooks. The greatest joy of life, the knowledge that you yourself filled this notebook with entire worlds.

~ the sound of cicadas in the summer at night

~ When you catch a glimpse of yourself in a random mirror and you actually look good

~ When something funny happens and you make this moment of eye contact with a random person and both laugh silently

~ Coffee with lots of cream and just the right amount of maple syrup

Thanks for this thread, Tsuki. I feel a lot better now.

Actually thooooo!!! So true~

Especially the mirror one; sometimes you just need a nice little boost in confidence :)

when the random person on the street walking a dog wants to say hi to my dog

when my friend braids my hair

when, similar to what you guys said, you kinda catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror, and the mirrors kinda fuzzy and so is your eyesight and youre standing far enough back you can't see all the craters on your face and you're like hey, i might actually be beautiful

when the ball hits the glove
