Practicing Happiness - October 15, 2018
It's time for what's making us happy this week!
I went to the Shameful Tiki Room for drinks on Tuesday, and as ever, it was a blast. They make great food, delicious drinks, and the atmosphere is just really entertaining! It's a joy to introduce new people to it, and the bowls they have available make for a bit of a spectacle so it's kind of an experience! It is fairly busy (even on a Tuesday!) and not cheap, so it's kind of an adventure you need to plan for, but I had a good time this week, and I'm glad it's somewhere I can get to as often as I like!
In other, cheap-as-free, read at your desk news, I'm a really big fan of Captain Awkward, an advice blog that I've been reading pretty regularly for the past couple of years now. Her advice usually boils down to some variation on "talk about it, also try some therapy", which I think is probably a sound way of dealing with about 90% of problems, even when it feels hard and scary. Her writing is really funny and kind, while still making strong points where she needs to, and more than one of her columns has made me feel pretty strongly, whether it's scared, encouraged, or just seen.She's also been doing short-answer posts on Fridays that are really fun and generally whenever she posts I'm happy to give it a read, even when it's advice that has little to no bearing on anything in my life, so if that sounds like your style you should give her stuff a read!
And now, what about you? What's making you happy this week?
