Hello everyone! So I know I have many great tags to get to but this is a new one I’ve recently been tagged in but couldn’t wait to do. The I Am More Happy Than Not Tag was created by Shelumiel @Bookish and Awesome but originally made in response to the “What makes you #MoreHappyThanNot?” question inspired by Adam Silvera’s upcoming debut More Happy Than Not. (You all know I adored Simon in Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. Well I discovered this title from Becky Albertalli’s praise. I am so psyched for this release! So the rush for this tag was partially due to the upcoming release date as well, hehe.)
The Rules –
- Answer the question in whatever way you prefer, whether it be a list or in a narrative form.
- Link back to the original creator’s post.
Update May 17, 2015:
Sorry I lied, one more rule that I’m sure Shelumiel would really appreciate. Make sure to add your link to the link collector (or whatever those are called) on his original post! It’ll be cool to see how many bloggers participated, and Shelumiel can see his handiwork on getting this tag started. I’m sure he’d love to read your response to this tag!
So let’s get started, shall we?
Even though my TBR pile is forever growing and it feels like I’ll never ever be able to finish it, I am more happy than not.
Sometimes when I leave the bookstore with so many impulse buys and my reflected bank account balance makes me regret the spree, I am still more happy than not.
I complain about school and often wish to graduate sooner but I think of the many friends and memories I’ve made through univ, and I am more happy than not.
Whenever I make plans but then it starts to pour with heavy rain, I am able to see the plants and trees soak up the well-needed water, for that I am more happy than not.
I know I’m not as witty or eloquent as other bloggers when it comes to writing for this blog yet I am still glad I have a platform to share my thoughts, I am more happy than not.
I get ARC envy when I see bloggers review a highly coveted book. However, I do think they deserve it and I do share their excitement for the release, so I am still more happy than not.
I sometimes have bouts of wanderlust and get exasperated for my lack of traveling but then I think of the times I’ve been homesick during short trips, so I am more happy than not.
When I read an ebook but curse that I should have gotten a physical copy, I try to remind myself that I am still reading a fantastic book, I am more happy than not.
I am in no way a morning person, so those tough mornings I wake up thankful that I did, and I am more happy than not.
I’m definitely an awkward individual and introvert, but I try to remind myself to be more appreciative of my identity. In those moments of thought, I am certainly more happy than not.
