The Friday Top Five

Five things that will make a bad day better!

For some reason, today I have been in a “blah” mood. It could be that I didn’t win any awards yesterday at the poster session, it could be that my internship is ending, it could be that that means school will be starting soon, or it could be that it is the most perfect day to take a nap (all cloudy and such) and I am stuck in an office building. But whatever the case I have decided to share some of my favorite “perk-up” activities for today’s Friday Top Five!

Number 5

Taking a shower!

I have no idea why, but I absolutely looovvveeee taking showers—probably to my parent’s disliking (“April, we live in a desert!!!”). I love getting all clean and warm! Hurray! Too bad showers are not more socially accepted at work :-(
Here is Astronaut Charles Conrad Jr., Skylab 2 commander, smiling for the camera after a hot shower in the shower facility! See even astronauts like hot showers!!!!!

Number 4
Writing!
Yes, I know, I’m weird. But seriously, just from writing this I’m feeling less blah! I especially like this option if I’m feeling blah about a certain subject…I just write a bunch of crap down and I feel so much better!

Number 3
Looking at pictures!
I love looking at pictures…any type of pictures actually. They could be old pictures of me, my family, pictures of friends. It seems lately a lot of pictures I have been looking at are of my friends’ weddings (crazy!!). I love looking at scrapbooks people make, although I will never have to time to make one, I can appreciate the hard work others have put into the scrapbooking craft! Oh, and space pictures are always good! Ha!

Number 2
Solitaire!
This is definitely my weakness. Dangit Microsoft, why must you put this addicting game on all of your computers, and even though I have attempted to build up the courage necessary to delete my precious solitaire, it never seems to work…I JUST CAN’T DO IT!!!
Plus: its so fun when the cards have an astronaut on them!!!

Number 1
Happy People Dancing on Planet Earth!
Ok, this definitely has to be Number 1!!!! If you really are just sad, or having a bad day, there is absolutely no way you can watch this little video and not have a huge smile on your face! Ironically, I first found this video on the “Astronomy Picture of the Day” website which I check out quite frequently. It really is just a video of people all over the world dancing! It sounds lame, I know, but just take a few minutes and check it out…I promise it will make the day better.

PS: I just realized its Friday…another reason to be happy!!!
