    As some you you may know today is the UN International Day of Happiness. So with that what has made you happy/smile today?

    The day is still young but so far I'm happy I found a pair of matching socks :p

    The fact that there's still some snow around, and that I might be able to pick up some ponies at Asda.

    Haiyore! Nyaruko-san.

    And yesterday the answer would be Nichijou, Girls und Panzer and having a decent internet.

    I suddenly feel very one-dimensional.

    Listening to some new music from a band I used to listen to but have now evolved into a heavier sound, it's interesting, never thought I would like the style of music which it is... (Grime) But I guess it still retains some of their first albums charm, which is why I find it easier to listen too.

    Eating something I cooked.
    Culinary effort is quite rewarding.

    Ooh, quite a bit:

    1. Making progress with figuring out how to animate with After Effects. Specifically, blink cycles, as well as a few other tricks that would make character animation easier.

    2. In relation to 1, finally finding use for a rather extensive and expensive animation book I got a few years ago. Turns out it's not just for traditional animation after all!

    3. Going kinda nuts in 2 comic stores, and buying the new MLP comic, the entire run of DeadpoolNOW!, as well as all the issues for 2 crossover events, totalling in a couple dozen comics in all. And finding that I did have enough money for all of them.

    4. Sort of related to 1 and 2, finding out that apparently, the UK government is working on plans to give UK-based animators tax breaks, to convince them to stay in the country instead of moving to work in, say, Canada, where such tax breaks already exist for those in creative industries. So even if I don't make huge amounts of money as an animator, I at least won't have to worry too much about merciless taxes.

    Yeah, needless to say, today was a good day!

    My brother is coming home tonight after several months abroad. A cause for happiness, if there ever was one.

    Yesterday: I was having a bit of a blue day, Teasle drew me this to cheer me up - love it to bits!

    Today: I got an email from a close childhood friend who I haven't spoken to in just over four years, she told me she was moving in next door in the following few weeks and would like me to come round for a catchup some time :)
