List 10 of your happiest moments. They can be from anytime, as a child, 2-4 years ago, whenever. If you wish, list why they were happy moments and if you can create them again. My happy moments 1 = 22nd birthday. My friend, someone who I've been guiltily avoiding lately, surprised me by organizing everything. My family knew about and it definitely took me by surprise. She knows I'm a big fan of anything involving the Joker. The colors and decorations were drawn around this theme. There was even a special purple, orange, blue and green cake with black accents. 2 = Getting my license at 17. I was a year late, but I finally like an adult. I celebrated by taking myself out to a movie and dinner and getting ice cream later. It was time well spent alone. 3 = When an ex-boyfriend took me to Disney World. I'd never been. He purchased tickets and a weekend trip for Valentine's Day, the only V-day I ever celebrated with someone. The relationship didn't end in a good way but that was a nice memory out of it. 4 = Buying my first car several years ago. 1997 Toyota Camry. Not the fanciest car, but I was proud to finally be able to afford my own transportation after not having it for many years and relying on buses. It's still in good shape for an old car. 5 = Traveling to Toronto to attend TCAF. Bittersweet experience. That's where I met someone I became heartsick over but I enjoyed the experience of going. I had a good time and got to meet a lot of people I respect in the industry. Lots of killer artwork and graphic novels to browse. I was like a kid in a candy store. 6 = Writing my first novel manuscript. I'm still looking for publishers but I was thrilled to finally get it done. 7 = Recently feeling like I could walk away from a bad trigger situation and keep my promise to myself. I guess that means I'm a little stronger than I usually give myself credit for. 8 = First kiss at 18. I know, I was a late bloomer, but I was ecstatic about it and I remember every little detail. The connection didn't last long, but it didn't necessarily end on a bad note. We just lost contact. It wasn't a serious relationship. We were more like friends. 9 = Going to visit family in Monterey. It's a beautiful place. I stayed for like a week and got to visit the aquarium there. I felt at peace there. It's one of several places I wish I could live... 10 = Having a Japanese exchange student Yuki stay at my parent's house when I was a teen. She stayed over the summer. It was sad to see her go because the whole experience was exciting to meet someone from another country and to learn about their culture. She tried to teach me Japanese, but all I can remember is counting from 1-10. Since then I've always wanted to go to Japan. It's one of the reasons I've wanted to go for the longest.
