Tag Week: The Tag of Happiness

Hey all! So this tag isn’t one I was actually tagged for, but I saw it on Bailey’s blog (she created it!) and I thought it looked fun. So for the first time ever, I’m going to steal a tag. MWAHAHAHA, I feel so gloriously evil.

Ze Rules:
Take the banner and put it in your post
List as many things as you want in each category
Come up with more categories if you wish
Tag as many people as you want

I like these rules. I GET TO DO WHAT I WANT.

Anyway. To the post.

1. Some Songs That Make You Happy.

This song is so much fun and it just makes me want to grin and skip and dance every time I listen to it. Plus, these guys are crazy and the music video is really funny.

Even though you wouldn’t think it, this song is actually really fun, too. The rhythm of it makes me smile, and the words just make me feel so powerful and sassy. *snaps fingers in a z-formation* It’s just great and a blast to listen to.

Also, pretty much any song by PureNRG (they used to be my favorite band) and Jump5 (they used to be my second favorite band). Their songs are fun and dance-y with uplifting messages and they all just make me really happy. :D

2. Some Books That Make You Happy


But some of my favorite ones ever.

These are my favorite books in my favorite series. Just thinking about them brings me joy.

I haven’t actually finished this series yet, but these mangas have made me smile, laugh, even want to cry a little bit (which for me is the equivalent of sobbing wildly with empty boxes of kleenex).

These books are totally hilarious! The last five or six (not including twelve since I haven't read it) are my favorites because the writing got so much better and the characters developed even more.

There are probably a million more books that make me happy, but these are all I can think of right offhand. I am a bookworm after all, so after I finish this post, I will probably think of about a thousand more that I could’ve used. *shrugs* Oh well.

3. Some Foods That Make You Happy.
Moose Tracks Ice Cream, Bunny Tracks Ice Cream, almost any kind of Tracks ice cream makes me very, very happy.

Also Dove’s Dark Chocolate and Awake Caffeinated Chocolate. Best. Chocolate. Ever.

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (I think we’re seeing a pattern here) make me beyond happy. Try over-the-moon thrilled.

Also, tiramisu, Samoa bars, and... I’m just gonna stop now. I like food in general, but almost anything with chocolate in it will make me extremely happy. :D

I know. I'm starving now too.
4. Some Words That Make You Happy.

I really love the words irrelevant, preposterous, problematic, and, most recently, gorgeous and glorious. I don’t know why, but I find those words amazing (another favorite).

5. Some Scents That Make You Happy.
Baking Bread.

Cookies fresh out of the oven (again with the pattern).

Fall smells (cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, etc).

My grandmother’s perfume (it’s one of the first things I recognize when I go to her house, and I always notice it lingering in ours after she visits for a while. So yeah. :) ).

6. Some Random Things That Make You Happy
Fangirling with my best friends.

Introducing people to my favorite fandoms.

An out-of-the-blue email from someone I haven’t heard from in a while.

Like Bailey mentioned, warm blankets fresh from the dryer that smell all fresh and clean. :)

Boots. My favorite boots make me happy.

Eating ice cream as I watch my favorite movies or TV shows.

Crafting the perfect picture (or discovering the perfect gif) to go along with a blog post.

Random, hilarious conversations on my writers group.

Sweet baby charries <3


Also this video. These guys are crazy, and the vid is hilarious. :D

And that’s the tag! This time, I will not tag anyone. Instead I will give you the chance to feel happy by feeling evil and stealing this tag from me. ;) If you do decide to steal it, though, please leave me your link. I’d love to check your tag post out!

Comment time! Pick one of the questions above and leave me a comment on what makes you happy! I’d love to know. :D

  1. Mean makes me happy too! *high fives* *misses* *falls over* (I haven't read the Ranger's Apprentice yet, but I hear so many people talking about the series, I'm thinking I should get on it at some point. MMM, chocolate and the smell of baking bread make me happy, also the smell of books, fresh air, autumn air, the smell of cold wind on a spring morning, the smell of cold rain, the smell of warm rain, just rain in general. Small rodents make me happy--also large cups of coffee and towering stacks of books. The sound of fingers typing. SO MANY THINGS. Thanks so much for doing this post--you've reminded me of all I have to be thankful for and happy about. :) (Also, thanks for commenting on Out of Coffee, Out of Mind.) XD

      Oh yeah, those are great too, especially the smell of rain... *breathes deeply* So wonderful :D
      Haha, I don't know if I'd say small rodents make me /happy/, but I'm actually not scared of mice or anything like that. Actually, I used to want a mouse as a pet, so... yeah.
      *nods* Cups of coffee and books are definitely wonderful things! :D
      No problem! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D

  2. Pure NRG and Jump 5 were definitely bands I enjoyed when I was younger. And still do, sporadically. I am a very loyal to my music choices. I too love the Ranger's Apprentice books and am pining for their return to my home. :) I too love out-of-the-blue emails, actually, and just getting to reconnect with friends that I haven't spent time with in some time. Perfect GIFs are also amazing. I actually was tagged for this and I'm planning to post it on Wednesdsay, hahaha... that will be fun. Thanks for spreading your happiness, Alexa!

    1. Haha, I'm the same! I don't listen to them nearly as much as I used to, but eventually, I always go back. :)
      YES. ANOTHER FAN OF THE SERIES! Those books are so amazing though!
      Cool! Can't wait to see your post! :D

  3. You've outdone yourself with this post! Everything here from songs to cake to happy dance! And speaking of that. . .dancing makes me extremely happy.

    1. Thank you! :D And yes, I like to dance too (or more accurately, pretend that I can, lol)!

  4. YAY FOR SPREADING THE HAPPINESS! :P This was awesome, Alexa! I loved reading your answers. Moose tracks ice cream is my favorite! And BUNNY tracks?! I've never heard of it, but I must try it. Glorious is one of my favorite words too! Haha, thanks for sharing this! :D

    1. :D THANK YOU!
      YES. Bunny Tracks is /so so SO/ delicious!
      No problem! Thanks for making up the tag!

  5. Oh my gosh, that second Anthem Lights video though, oh my gosh. Both were hilarious, but the second one put me in fits of laughter. AHAHAHAHA. :"D They are always hilarious. The Taylor Swift one, though; that song is so. catchy. dkafjdjklas.

    Thank you for sharing this, Alexa; this is such a fun tag! It made me grin: "ALL THE GOOD BOOKS MAKE ME HAPPY!!!" :D

    That chocolate GIF you put right there, I saw it, and I was like, "Oh my gosh, I am so hungry now" and then beneath it I realised that it said, "I know. I'm starving now too." BAHAHA. X'D That GIF is like. Oh my gosh, my new favourite?! Do you have a favourite GIF? Ahh. Food. I love how this post is so covered with FOOD.

    1. YES I KNOW. THEY ARE SO FUNNY! :D And totally! I LOVE that song.

      Happy to make you smile. :D It was a blast for me too.

      LOL, I'm like a mind-reader, huh? ;) I've never thought about having a favorite GIF, but that just might be one of them, lol. Also the one of the giant spoon I did in the other Tag Week post.
      HAHA, well food does make me extremely happy, so I guess it was inevitable. ;)
