Happiness Practice - January 26, 2018

It's an early what's making me happy this week! I'm very close to beating XCOM 2 and I'm enjoying it so much I don't actually want it to end. Per Kotaku's review, it's a turn based grief simulator, with aliens, and it's like it was made for me specifically. The combat is great, the base management is even better, and every single minute of it is a complete joy- even the times I'm crying, somehow. If you're into RTS games at all, you should check it out! Another thing that made me laugh this week was Pajiba's write-up of Unleashed, a movie that I saw the trailer for and immediately went, what? Why? I'm very glad I got to know more without having to sit through the film itself. Now, what's making you happy this week?

Okay, so, it's Friday and time to talk about what's making us happy this week! A thing that's always making me laugh is Judge John Hodgman, and this week in particular was quite good. The second case & his ruling had me actually laughing out loud in public, looking goofy as hell! Definitely brought some joy to me this week. Also, these cookies, which I baked last night and can't stop thinking about now. How about you?

To shamelessly crib from one of my favourite podcasts, Pop Culture Happy Hour, I thought it might be fun to start talking about the good stuff making our days and lives better once a week. I've been thinking of trying this for a little while, so we'll see how it goes! So, what's making me happy this week is that Lovesick, a British sitcom from Netflix, released its third season at the beginning of the month. I've been rewatching seasons one and two to get ready for the new episodes, and it's just so good! Hopefully season three holds up but even if it doesn't, Lovesick makes me genuinely giggle almost every episode. Also, this video of a hedgehog. Anyone else? What's making you happy this week?
