I knew this year was going to be the best year of my life, and it's not even finished yet.
Cosmo did this study where if you have something to look forward to, your happiness level was dramatically increased than those who didn't. Let me tell you, I have many, many things to look forward to by the end of the year.
Take for instance this Saturday, where I will be going to an Eminem concert with Jessica. Do you realize that I've been waiting to see Eminem in concert since I was in the fourth grade? Sure, I had to wait ten years for it, but it's been a while since he was on the West Coast and I know - I know - that the wait is totally worth it.
Next, Goat and I are going to a hockey game - a Ducks game to be more specific. He's a huge fan, so I got us pretty good tickets.
Then there's Jack Sparrow at Disneyland, and no, I didn't come up with it but I totally should have.
After that, there's Knott's Scary Farm, Halloween, Comic-Con tickets on sale, Robert Downey Jr.'s Due Date comes out, my twenty-first birthday, finals/end of school year, Johnny Depp's The Tourist, Christian Bale's The Fighter (Do you see how crazy-similar the titles are? Totally a sign!) visiting my father, Christmas and then New Year's. The month of October is also when I'm supposed to meet with my Jack Sparrow impersonator.
It's like one week after another has something I'm anticipating, and this excitement has made me happier than I've been before. I know the things may seem minuscule - the movies or even the hockey game - but they mean a lot to me. And I can't wait - but I'll have to. And maybe this will somehow teach me patience.
Oh, and today? Well today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Practically a holiday made just for me and all those other pirates out there.
Life is beautiful and I'm so lucky to be living it right now... savvy?
