It starts today.

I’m done being sad, homesick, lazy and feeling down. I know what I want in my life and today starts the first day of my new life style.

I am reading a book called The Happiness Project that my wonderful aunt sent to me. It’s partly where I am getting my motivation to my new and improved life style. It’s an awesome book… and I recommend that everyone should read it!

As part of my 365 Happiness Project, I am going to keep my blog updated with things

that are related to making me happy.

1. Praying and becoming more faithful by going to Church weekly.

2. I love making list (How ironic, I’m making one right now! ha!) so every morning

I will make a list for myself.

3. Working out, no better feeling then feeling healthy & looking healthy!

4. Eating healthy. (Goes along with #3)

5. Cooking & baking. My mom is an awesome cook & I want to be that great someday! So, I have to start!

6. School. Last semester I did great & it was such a great feeling.

Right now, I’ve got a banana bread in the oven.. can’t wait to see how it turns out! 🙂

I’m also cooking dinner tonight for my roommates.

The menu for tonight is:

  • Chick breast with wine & garlic
  • Potatoes with olive oil
  • Salad
  • Banana bread for desert!


About average college girl with big dreams

Hi everyone reading my blog! My name is Lauren and this is my first blog ever. Lately, I've been reading lots of different blogs.. and it wasn't until today during my English class that I started my own blog as a requirement! :) I am excited and hopefully I stay committed to updating it.

    Very nice – good prose and I’ll look forward to reading more. I like your lists and it’s something I do almost every day. Not that I get it all done, but at least it’s a start.

    I like your quote too. It’s a lot like my favorite: “Do one thing everyday that scares you.”

    One final note: You’re definitely not average. In fact, you’re about the least average person I know so don’t change that.

    Set your goals high. You hit why you aim at. if you aim at nothing you will hit it every time
