Formatting my hard-drive and re-installing XP! 'Twas a hard battle indeed, forcing my computer to boot from CD, then to recognize my hard drive, not to mention driver installation, copying saved files back onto disk, dowloading and installing essential programs...

But after 13 gruelling hours, my desktop is back in prime condition! Booting at lightning speeds! Gigabytes of free memory! Firefox, open in seconds! I feel like it could open a thousand browser tabs!

So, what did you do recently that just felt sooo good?

Meditating. I found some really relaxing classical music on the radio a few days ago, and I parked my car, closed my eyes and just let everything wash away for a few minutes. Afterwards I felt utterly reinvigorated.

Doing a good long sparring session of any form, watching an awesome movie, helping someone out or having a really good sandwhich/burger/piece of pizza.

I think I'm going to go for a smoke in a few minutes. Something to calm me down and make me feel really good.

Watching our MRAP punt some poor dumb twerp's Bongo truck 'cause he was dumb enough to get in our way.
Hey, I shouted "Blood for the Blood God!" after a guy punched my lip open and blood was pouring out my mouth. Whaddya expect?

After a long day of doing chores and hanging out with my boys and watching movies (Ghostbusters and HHGttG). Also IMing with Llama. :smallsmile:

WoWing it up for seven hours non-stop and FINALLY killing Arra'Chea. Stupid Kodo, running all over the Golden Plains and being all Kodoish...

Also, at long last, discovering that Jean-Claude Van Damme is going to be in another movie. I have sorely needed a new infusion of my kick-ass Belgian man.

And this one is entirely unrelated to the other two, but it still stands...I got an A on my first Humanities exam!

Hanging out with my friends.

Learning how to do a one-handed cartwheel AND a backwards somersault in one week (those are two things I thought I could never do).

Listening to good music.

Dancing/palates/cardio.

Choreographing something wicked cool.

Surfing the forums! :smallsmile:

Holding a friend close, feeling their heart beat, feeling the race of their pulse, the rush of their blood, and the soft susurrus of their nervous system, and feeling it slow and stop.

Don't look at me like that, I decided the moment was too good to end too soon, so I used a meditative technique to slow my perception of time.

I lik cudlz. Alot. Nobody cudlz wit mi. :smallfrown:*

*Seriously, I see people tops every couple weeks, and they're all scared of physical contact with me. With maybe half an exception.

You'd think more Non-euclidean americans would be okay with truly non-euclidean americans.

I don't even see deep sea fisherman, I get to see my handlers. Not always daily, but most days, for at least a couple hours. And every few weeks I get to take a trip to visit friends.

So, what did you do recently that just felt sooo good?

Piss-up, and also the fact that my two mates are hungover and I'm not. ^_^

Getting home from work, turning on my fire, and collapsing for about 20 mins and going completely blank.

Being offered 50/week to keep tabs on my boss (who I now live 5 doors away from and is extremely secretive about his private life).

Chasing pigeons around York like a 5 year old on crack.

I have a cat who decides to cuddle with me at random intervals during the day.

My cat cuddles with me every morning, afternoons that I'm home for and some times in my bed.

Curling up in my bed as if I had cuddles.

Spooning. Even the name is awesome.

New addition to the list: cooking something that didn't burn and was delicious.

Funny. That is why I stopped using pillows, and unless it's extremely cold sheets. Living a lie is such a depressing thing when reality hits.

Don't look at me like that. You can take your physical/emotional intimacy somewhere else.

Finally watching the second Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann movie. EPIIICCC. :smallbiggrin::smallbiggrin:

Listening to some good Metal.

And finally, getting to play some D&D, also working on optimizing my paladin. :smallbiggrin: Delicious unarmed charging smites...

^Also, is that heresy I heard? It better not have been heresy. I think it was heresy. (Fun to yell though, isn't it? :P)

I felt good when I saw my actual chances of getting accepted to a certain school, as well as the probably financial aid package, when the factors concerning me as a person were added in, rising from 5% and 50k/yr to 40% or higher and 0k/yr.

My wife and I joined a Saturday morning circuit training class. First session consisted of four circuits, each of which included running up and down three flights of stairs three times! The burning ache feels sooooo good! It's nice to feel some of the winter slack frying away!

Sorry about that, it happens sometimes.

I'd find it hard to sleep without a pillow to hug these days. =/ I think I'll take my depression elsewhere, this thread is hardly a good place for it.


Singing/screaming is so cathartic sometimes.

Hiked up Stone Mountain barefoot yesterday. It was so freeing and let me forget all the other crap going on for at least a little while.

Got some great pics:

Wow, VT, excellent pics. I wish I had somewhere around where I live that I could climb up that high and get such a good view of everything. Alas, I am left with nothing but vague memories.

Anyway, back on topic. I'd like to second both Jazz and singing as things that will usually make me feel good.

Talking to arguskos :smalltongue:

Creating a new idea, playing dnd.

I would say acting but since I'm frustrated with my professor.. probably not for the day.

Accomplishing a challenging struggle

Following a situation and finding out the good triumphed over evil (or rather.. whatever side I was supporting triumphed.)
And of course... my brother hating the Saints... rooting for the saints during the superbowl and then Watching them win ^_^

I get an extraordinary amount of huggles. I kinda scared some of my old friends a while ago by hugging them all too much. I'm spoiled rotten for hugs.

I feed the pigeons (sometimes I feed the sparrows too), it gives me an extraordinary sense of well-being. (Park life!)

Also, helping friends help other friends cope with depression. Hearing people call me a good person. Honestly, I don't know whether GF knows what she's doing, but every time she calls me a good person, it is EXACTLY what I need to be told at that moment.
