making friends + meeting people
doing well in classes
feeling happy and confident, about myself and the things i'm doing
gone on a date with somebody (verdict: just friends)
gone to my first futbawl game (verdict: the student section is fun, but standing for 3 hours on concrete makes my feet hurt)
got invited to a linguistics research lab thing by a professor (verdict: very excited - first meeting on friday)
This is the happiest (and most consistently happy) that I can remember being, if not ever, then for a long time. I see no reason for things to get worse, and a lot of reasons for things to get better in the next little bit / the future.
(it's amazing how much easier things are when you consistently have energy and don't hate yourself)
Life is goodski.
