Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Happiness Challenge!

Happiness Challenge!

Basically, every day you post at least one thing that made you happy that day. It doesn't have to be big. Seriously, anything.

Here's the first one, made by September in 2017: http://www.cricketmagkids.com/chatterbox/downtoearth/node/328189

And here's one Artemis made two years ago: http://www.cricketmagkids.com/chatterbox/downtoearth/node/500235

Good luck <3

A lot of things made me sad today, but the one thing that made me happy today was spending time with my friends and going to the theatre. 

this thread is really nice thank you for making it hex!

I finished my bibliography for the essay I'm working on—it was like 40 sources—and it looks so satisfying :D

Someone asked my friend what his middle name was but he only told us it started with an S, so we made a game of it and started guessing things like Saitan and Stinkbug, and it was very fun.

Sauron, perhaps? Salamander? Serendipity? (I could get on board with this.)

It was unseasonalby warm today so all my teachers let us go outside, I started a new book (I Am A Cat by Natsume Soseki if anyone's wondering, which no one probably is), and I went to the library and a coffee shop after school!  'Tis been a pretty good day.

Ahh yay I need this thread right now :)

I've also been feeling a bit sad & having some friend problems, but today two books that I was looking forward to came in at the library and we had a 2-hour delay due to snow which was very nice :) 

Wow, my captcha says "periw." The first five letters of Periwinkle's name, actually in order! Maybe the next captcha will be "inkle." (If it is I will freak out.)

I'm feeling sick today, but I'm happy because I texted with my brother who lives far away today!

Woo, I'm determined to do this every day even if I'm not actually active!

Today wasn't the best tbh, but I watched Seinfeld with my family and finished the first book in A Series of Unfortunate Events, which I'm a bit old for but I've always wanted to read them (I love the show) so who cares!

Having a lovely cast party with froyo after closing night last night (which is sad, but ya know... there's next year, with some of the same people); reading "full disclosure" in my book and slapping my knee and breaking out into song (full disclosure from the addams family, which was my last play before y.a.g.m.,c.b.); one of my 2 closest friends from camp will be shadowing me on the 6th to see if they wanna come to my school next year; 

also happiness is finding a pencil, this line isn't kosher, telling the time, happiness is learning to whistle, tying your shoe for the very first time, happiness is playing the drums in your own school band, and happiness is walking hand in hand, happiness is morning and evening daytime and nighttime too for happiness is anyone and anything at all thats loved by you happiness is having a sister sharing a sandwich getting along happiness is singing together when day is through and happiness is those who sing with you (happiness is those who sing with youuu) happiness is morning and evening daytime and nighttime too for happiness is anyone and anything at all thats loved by you     /lyr

The above are lyrics from an old Peanuts song. Is it part of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"?
