List five things that bug you right now.
Then list ten things that make you happy right now.
Then pass on to five others.
Things that bug me:
1. Getting a parking ticket.
2. My phone mysteriously not working.
3. The current presidential administration.
4. Not getting much freelance work this month.
5. Being single again.
Things that make me happy:
1. The fact that my friends have been so kind and supportive after my breakup.
2. The fact that even after the breakup, my ex is still an amazing person and a good friend.
3. WHITE SOX, fool (sorry, Dora, but...WHITE SOX!).
4. The prospect of going out tonight to see Lara and Jeff perform at Vaudeville Underground.
5. The prospect of going out Friday to rum_holiday's place to eat New England food and watch noir.
7. Music in general and MF Doom in particular, whose Special Herbs series and The Mouse and the Mask collabo with Dangermouse is entertaining me at work.
8. The possibility of going hiking next week at Starved Rock.
9. Having more free time to write.
10. Chicago, the greatest place I have ever lived.
Five friends to do this: I won't tag anyone. Do this if you like.
