If you're ever feeling sad or down, just remember, there are things that can make you feel happy and better and I will always look at this list whenever I feel like everything is hopeless and when I feel like I have nobody to rely on.
I hope you liked the things that I consider happiness and I shall see you soon,

P.S. I have finished writing my Two sound holes series on my laptop and I'll publish it here in parts (and they will get longer with time) and now I don't have anything to write about, but I have an idea in my head involving this very list. Would you like to see me do something with it?
