But you're here already, and evidently still reading [a fact that continues to amaze me, btw] so I'm hijacking you today to check out Nickerblog's post of "30 random ways to a happier life." I've always felt that happiness comes with simple things, and I'm a sucker for random things, so here's a sampling:
1. Learn early on to enjoy warm soda. Trust me, it comes in handy. While you're at it, learn to drink black coffee. [emphasis mine--sage advice, indeed]
***11. Cut out people that bum you out.
***17. Get rid of the stuff you're hoarding. It's an emotional drain.
***25. Treat yourself to nice underwear. Life is too short.
It ends rather cleverly, and some dumb poster didn't get it because he was looking for item #30, ha! He saves the best for last.
