The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun
by Gretchen Rubin

Goodreads Rating: 3.57/5

It is quite obvious why I picked this book and started posting (only) one thing that made me happy every day (hopefully) on 31/3/2017 – I have not been quite happy since March started. Well, maybe since Feb even freaking started.

This is my period of realisation: quitted my digital advertising job, vented all my negative emotions to my beloved one, cleared the dumps in my room, etc.

All of a sudden – I feel like empty; a new start.

While getting positive vibes from the book, I started to find something to do each day, to fill my dull but free/free but dull life:

  • 10 Minutes Abs Workout (Getting along)
  • Enroll in an Auto-CAD course for Interior Design studies
  • Learn 1 Shakespearean Sonnets
  • Learn Adobe InDesign (In progress)
  • Post 1 happy thing
  • Practice guitarlele
  • Read at least 30 minutes (No problem with this)

Well of course, I do give myself credits (LOADS OF…LOL)

  • Pick a movie to watch
  • Play Sims 4 (at most 1 hour)
  • Watch Sherlock (at most 1 episode)
  • Watch Westworld (Completed, but out of control LOL)
