Happy List! {by Aryan}

Friday, March 20, 2015


Happy first day of spring and Iranian New Year, my friends! Today's Happy List is from one of my oldest, most cherished friends. Aryan and I met in Iranian school when we were in elementary school and I lived in England. Our parents forced us to go on Saturdays for years, and while we absolutely hated it then, I can't thank them enough for it now (and have tried to push Brian to go for years!). We were best friends growing up, despite living in different cities and going to different schools, and wreaked more than a little havoc (our poor, poor moms). We've come far from our choreographed Spice Girls dance days, and I feel so fortunate to have stayed in touch. Aryan visited me in Chicago three years ago, and Brian and I stayed with her in England the year after that. It felt surreal to have the best of my two worlds together. Fingers crossed we'll see each other soon. 

10 things that are making Aryan smile as of late:

1. Spending time with my family. I am moving out next month, so I'm appreciating these days more than ever!
2. Laughing at randoms stuff with my sister, including YouTube clips like this one.
3. Speaking to my family and friends abroad on the phone/Viber/Skype. 
4. Meeting up with my school pals. Everyone is so busy that these occasions are rare!
5. My admission as a solicitor to the Law Society of England & Wales. It has taken me some time to get here, but it was worth it!
6. Spring. Looking forward to longer days and hopefully better weather!
7. Philosophy. I have recently joined a course in practical philosophy, which has been inspiration, and I have met some amazing people. 
8. Watching old episodes of Friends. It's Timeless! 
9. A daily packet of crisps (potato chips for U.S. readers). I can't live without them! My favorite flavor at the moment is Thai sweet chili.
10. A good cup of tea. Yes, I am Iranian :-)

Thank you for sharing, Aryan!
