Starting on Monday, September 6, 2010 (at 4:00 in the morning, so technically Sunday, September 5), I started taking a picture of something that made me happy every day. My Project Happiness 365 started as a proactive act on my part to ward off deep depression. It was spurred by heartbreak as an effort to pull myself out of the wreckage, but now it's fueled by gratitude and a desire to find the beauty in everyday, "mundane" life. This is my honest, vulnerable journey from Hot Mess to Winning. I hope this helps. Oh, and if you're in pain, good; that means you put your whole heart into something. And if you think it won't ever get better, I promise it will. Here's my proof.

356. Pussy Pillow

Ashley’s cat doesn’t mind being a pillow:

…and Kelley (the photographer) doesn’t mind using the zoom.

Wow, I really shouldn’t have taught her how to use my zoom.

I HOPE ALL MY LOVELIES ON THE EAST COAST ARE OK IN THE MIDST OF HURRICANE IRENE. Please be safe. I’m thinking of you.

I move to New York City in 6 days. BAH. I come home from Tejas on Monday and then I move to NYC indefinitely on Friday. BAH. And I just realized that I didn’t get to say goodbye to my lil sister Emma before she went to college. So I won’t see her again until I come home next.. which will be Thanksgiving, if I’m lucky. Otherwise, definitely Christmas. DAMN. So sad.

I’ll keep this one short:

I saw Our Idiot Brother yesterday, and it was really bad. But I did learn one thing. Ok, you know how you have those friends that just really love shit more than anything. For example: Caity Kuehn really loves Glee, Stephanie Genito really loves Lady Gaga, Meagan Wells really loves chocolate, my lil sister Emma really loves Britney Spears, my lil sister Leah really loves the Jonas Brothers, Katie Debs really loves “On The Floor” by J. Lo… etc. And those people.. I just want to love something that much. Like, when I was at Plan B with Stephanie, when Gaga came on, she put her paw in the air and she SHRIEKED. No exaggeration. Shrieked for all the world to hear. And she proceeded to dance like no one was watching. Like.. IIIII want to be that. She the did the choreography to the chorus of “Judas” on the dance floor. I want to love something that much. I want to have that much love for any one thing. I think people tend to get all judgmental about these types of people that I speak of, but fuck, I want that so badly. What do I love that much?

That’s enough for now, lovers.

LOVE.

(6 days til I move
