100 Things That Make Me Smile

By Reza B, published on Sep 29, 2010

It’s about 90 degrees now—I feel like I’m sitting underneath a very fat man who’s breathing on me at a steady humid rate. I’m on my balcony watching Hollywood shimmer in the summer heat (unfortunately it’s technically fall) and I realize how much I love my view. My dog is sleeping next to my feet; she always seems to be sleeping, but I love her nonetheless. No matter how bad my day is, my view and my dog always put a smile on my face—I feel like people, including myself, have forgotten how many things there are to make us smile; like we’ve lost perspective.

I Have My Spring With Me

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 15, 2017

No matter what happens, I know now that, I have the repertoire of experience and unfazed wish to take a course, which... (more)
