Alright, In an attmempt to continue to keep up with things. Here's 15 things that I was grateful for today/things that made me happy over the past few days.

1. A coworker said I was looking kind of Daniel Bryan today. He's probably in my top 5 of favorite wrestlers right now so that's a bonus. Although honestly, all beards should aspire to be his.
2. Someone actually complimented me on my patience when dealing with a customer who was taking a very, very long time to get out her change. The whole thing kind of... made me think of a lot of things. That's more good than bad, there, that's for sure.
3. The fact that my car's going into the shop monday instead of during the storm.
4. Finding out about said storm, which means I'll probably not be working saturday morning. Despite losing money, any day without stress from That place is a good day!
5. Finding out yesterday that we may have a second karaoke night at the bar we work at soon. Which means more money for me. I'll probably ask him if I can just run that one by myself just for the extra cash. I'm sure he'd be happy to hear me taking some initiave and I can most certainly do it. I fucking love the place, the staff there and the regulars are all great people. They treat us really well, too.
6. Getting to see my friend/co-worker Lyss today. She's awesome and like one of the few cashiers I'd hang with outside of work.
7. Having some REALLY good games of League of Legends in the past few days. Wukong and Sona seem to be my two best characters. Seeing my weaknesses and trying harder to improve on them has really helped out my game although I still die way too much. Also I'm starting to enjoy Mordekaiser, but we all know that is because mordekaiser es numero uno huehuehuehue.
8. Finding out that there's Regular Show action figures. As well as a new Earthworm Jim action figure. The fact that they made one without there even being a recent game out is well... groovy. Once I find out how much I'm spending on my car/dental crap, I may have to go back to toys r us to pick up a few things, by that I mean one of the regular show figures and see if they finally have an Ice King or a Marceline figure.
9. Finally figuring out what I'm actually cosplaying for Anime Boston. Even better when I realize that it's going to be the first con in awhile I haven't cosplayed a Homestuck. Although a certain character from the most recent updates is tempting as hell. I'm most likely cosplaying Kanji Tatsumi. Welp, time to hit the gym more frequently or get DDP yoga or something. I was also thinking Ezrael or someone from League. Though I would have to shave off my beard if I wanted to do either of those, although by May? I'll probably want to.
10. My new cellphone has been running, on average, 24+ hours without needing to be charged, even with slightly heavy use at some points. A very nice upgrade compared to my old phone, I'm glad I spent a little extra on it. Once i get a 32 gig micro SD card I won't even need to use my ipod anymore. All the games I have on my ipod I can get on droid. Except Jubeat, but that's more for an ipad.
11. Aside from a few moments of lows, I've been feeling really good. Mostly because I'm starting to realize the shit that's wrong with me? Yeah, I'm not alone in it. And even then, I'm okay.
12. Beating the last boss in Mogushan Vaults with my guild for the first time last night and tonight, blowing through the instance in about an hour's time. Which is really nice, considering how this thing started. I'm not the best tank in the world, but knowing I can do that and that I've played a part in success that I haven't been a part of in awhile? Feels good, man.
13.That I'm actually pushing myself to go to bed (semi) early. Or at least getting myself back on track. But more or less it was the fact that I simply said. "Nope, I'm done. Quitting while I'm ahead tonight." and logged off so I could do other things made me feel pretty good. Little things.
14. Knowing that I'm off for at least one of the days of the storm this weekend. Though I predict today at work will be crazy but you know what? That's okay. It'll go by fast.
15. People aren't even bothering me as much as they used to. I mean, yeah, people still suck in general... but day by day, more and more of the little things that bother me? They're going away, little by little.
16. Feeling more and more in control of myself. Feeling slightly more and more confident with each passing day. I know more than ever, I'll get through my troubles because I've been through a lot worse shit.
17. I'm debating more and more selling some of the stuff I don't use. I have a million DS games I don't play, a wii that's just collecting dust in my room, and several arcade sticks I haven't used. Though I'm pretty sure brawl with friends+ skype is a reason for me to keep the wii around. I could use the money.
18. The fact that I'm actually smiling while typing something like this. I actually seem to be keeping a genuine one up more nowadays. Things get fustrating now and again, but knowing I can pick up myself more without relying on others more and more ...
19. That I woke up, was healthy enough to go to work, and I have a job where the higher ups, from what I can tell, like me. I'm good at my job, despite what I think. And you know, as much as I hate it, and I hate some of the crap that goes down there.... my coworkers, aside from two or three... are decent people. and even then, they're not that bad. Good to see that I haven't lost sight of the good in people after all.
20. Another big thing is that I actually resisted buying those figures on impulse today. I basically told myself if I had to think about it, that it wasn't worth me picking up right now.

I may be feeling good about little things, but hey, progress is progress. The more I work at it, the harder I work at it, the stronger I'll become.
