I ran out of post-it notes at work today and went to the stationery cupboard to find that, not only were there new post-it notes but the highlighters and pencils had been restocked.

I returned to my desk with my loot and put my highlighters and pencil in my pencil tray, taking a moment to rearrange the order if its inhabitants.

I then opened the packet of post-it notes and the scent of new stationery washed over me, leaving a calm feeling in its wake.

I got lazy at the end of the school day and started to drift off in Spanish. I came up with a good idea for a book. Then I beat a bunch of friends of mine at knowledge bowl. (a school trivia game)

And next week I'll be performing with my JROTC Color Guard at a very prestigious Drill Competition. Add on top of that two college acceptance letters and a three-day week, life is going good...

That feeling of freshness right after a clean shave.

I'm jealous of this one. A fresh shave for me will look like the next man's five o'clock shadow.

Going from freaking out about the expense of car repairs to a wonderful sense of calm with the knowledge that as long as I pay it off in 6 months that there'll be no interest. Near panic to serene in about 4 hours.

Taking a nap on the couch, only to wake up and find that the cat has curled up next to you and is snoozing away contentedly.

I'm jealous. I take a nap and wake up to find that the parrot has crapped on me.

I have shaved my head as well, so I get even more of it. Neener?

Not so jealous of that one. I like my hair.

I tend to stroke my goatee whenever I'm thinking, and I tend to lose my track of thought when I go to stroke it and it's not there. Inevitably it does happen - my answer to getting my hair cut and keeping my goatee trim is to get a buzz cut and shave it completely off, respectively. My goatee grows back fast, and my hairline's started receding enough for me to not really want to have my hair long.

Anyway, for life's simple pleasures:

My roommate is currently playing Darksiders, which I've already beaten. There's something nice in watching him get stuck in the same places I was.
