I've had a lot of crummy goings-on in my life lately, and sometimes it's hard to focus on the positive. I know I'm not alone in feeling like this, so I decided to start a thread where we can all discuss things in our lives - big or small - that made us happy.

I'll start:

Today I drove my new Miata to work, and when I got to my desk, I had a voicemail from a supervisor in another department...I have two interviews scheduled for next Monday for a claims rep position! :tu:

What made you happy today?

What made me happy today is deciding to take tomorrow off to relax and work on my game development :)

That and the illusion the my alltrac isnt that far from trying to be started for the first time since purchase lol.

We all have those times. For me its not so bad cause I always have the thought it could be worse.......maybe that is why I am my friends and families amatuer shrink lol.

My wife texted me a picture today of my 3 year old girl all dressed up in her first day of ballet class, made this big Dad smile.

And I have been super stoked all week to start work on my 510 this weekend, I just pulled it out of storage where it has been for 2-3 years. Not to mention I cleaned up my garage last weekend, so I have lots of space to store parts.

I enjoyed a surprisingly clear run into work today, 35mins vs 60mins. A few 8000rpm blasts past the slower traffic, always a good start to the day.








*apart from surfing JNC Forum with a coffee, which I am doing right now*

I got the job! :D I get fingerprinted next Tuesday. :shock: Training starts on the 16th, and when I'm done, I'll have my insurance adjuster's license in every state! :tu:

...so, uh, that's what made me happy today. :P

Oh, and I found billet aluminum door lock pins for my Cobra that don't look hokey as all hell. :lol:

Been having a bit of a shit run with depression recently, so I've been concentrating on the little things. Songs I like, parts of games, TV shows etc.

1: The Amity Affliction have a new album out in September, it's gonna be sick. Title track:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGfSFcJMiMI

2: Saint's Row 3

3: Community, never fails to bring the lols. Brilliant show.

4: Saw my younger brother for the first time in ages today, which was nice.

over the weekend I got a bit sideways in the fb on a deserted side street, forgot for a moment that my job sucks the life from my bones... and that west virginia now requires a modified inspection sticker for any lowered car - lame. Time to move to Ohio where car guys enjoy relaxed laws.

That would be at least two rotaries on one street right? One of us would have to get a radical bridgeport and open exhaust for 8 am commutes..

Punk kids are always driving by late at night with their thumpin' stereos, I'd love to find out where they live and pay a 2 AM visit to their neighborhood, boso style :twisted:

Can you give more details on this? I think it is weird that they allow you to keep it lowered as long as you get a
modified inspection sticker" rather than just failing you...

Thanks.
