Things I Enjoy

Things: they are what we do most of the time. Sometimes, things are not going so great. Other times, things are going as smooth as Spider’s Silk™. Occasionally I will find myself entombed by an extremely attractive brand of self-loathing. To combat this (somehow even more attractively), I have been making a list of nice things that I like. Whenever I find myself enjoying an activity or a thought or a large rhubarb pie, I take a second to write down what I am doing. This way, the next time I am consumed by darkness or despair or a murder of crows, I can look at my list and remind myself that there are nice things in the world. I would like to share my list with you, The Readers, because I think we could all benefit from being angry at me for enjoying myself.

  • Playing literally any piano.

Thank you for reading my list! I hope it inspires you so the next time ​you​ enjoy doing something, you will stop and think “wow, that Daniel guy should be on television.”

If you have a list of things that you enjoy and want to share it with me, please, keep it to yourself.
