Day 32 (a day late): this photo pretty much encapsulates last night - a bunch of colored folks cheesin’ and actin’ a fool with a random white dude wondering what the hell is going on. It was a good night. #100happydays
Day 30: happy, happy birthday Angela! Can’t believe it’s been almost five years since we first met during that fateful OCA summer. Grateful to know you and hope that your special day is filled with the love and laughter you deserve. #100happydays
Day 29: my ma’s latest goodwill finds for me. she’s always saying that she’s gonna stop feeding my jewelry addiction but she just can’t help herself, and I ain’t complainin’! #100happydays #iammymothersdaughter
Day 28: meet grizzly, our temporary 3-legged (yes, he’s missing a leg, bless his heart) house guest until my roommate can find him a more permanent home. is he not the most adorable creature you’ve ever seen?!? 🐕 #100happydays
Day 27: when your family genes run on the slightly vertically challenged side, finding long skirts that fit in the waist without five feet of extra fabric is a struggle. Thank god high waisted skirts are in right now & for my momma’s excellent goodwill find! Also, unrelatedly, the feeling after a fresh undercut shave is the best feeling evaaaaa. #100happydays
Day 26 (a day late 😔): braved the crowds to go see the cherry blossoms and so glad I did. Petals were already starting to fall but that just made it all the more lush and romantic - absolutely stunning! #100happydays #nofilter
Day 24 (a day late): finished my first 5k race ever and even though I felt like death six minutes in and questioned myself multiple times on why on earth I would voluntarily put myself through such torture, I think I’m hooked.
Plus, support from running buddies and awesome signs from amazing coworkers helped make it a little less painful, too. Thanks, y’all. 🙌😄🙋
Day 23: watched ‘documented’ at the newseum and was reminded of my immigrant mother and how much I miss her. So I Skype her on my walk home and of course the first things she asks me in rapid succession are, ‘Where are you? What are you doing? Have you eaten?’ Love you too, ma. #100happydays
