Hello again, internet world.

Yes, I’ve finally decided to resurface to My Bit of Happiness. Why you ask? A few things:

First, I’ve been noticing a lot of friends who are also beginning or returning to blogging, and seeing them update makes me miss this.

Second, my life post-graduation seems a bit dull–leaving the college life, returning home to Connecticut, and not being a workaholic for once makes it feel like I’m not doing much.  So although I’ve actually been having a blast with friends, since I’m not working, taking classes, or serving leadership roles, and since some of my best friends no longer live in the same house or down the street, life seems a bit empty.

I also still don’t know where my life is heading. I’m looking for jobs, mostly in Pennsylvania, meaning I may be moving in with friends and starting a new chapter of my life, but I’m not sure. Uncertainty is scary.

So, with all this being said, I figure it might be beneficial to start focusing on the “good things” again. It can be easy to be negative in such a transitory part of my life, and I don’t want to be.

"What is essential is invisible to the eye" -Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Let me know of what you think about all this. I’d really appreciate feedback or suggestions for my blog and for me. Cool hobbies, websites, things to do, ideas for a blog post, things I can do to make this blog better, anything really. Welcome back, and thanks for reading!

As a kid in my Easter outfit...awww

I love spring...and the overabundance of flowers.

As I’m recuperating from a wonderfully delicious Easter dinner of ham, sweet potatoes, kielbasi, bread, strawberry shortcake…and oh so much more… I am am going to wish that everyone else had a wonderful day, whether or not you celebrate Easter.

Sadly, my brothers and I were too old for an Easter egg hunt, but just for the sake of the child in us all, here is a silly online game that requires hunting for eggs:

I also missed the Easter egg decorating again, but here’s an online easter egg decorating game, too:

Of course, I know the true meaning of Easter.  But I must admit, this holiday always reminds me of childhood, more so than even Christmas or Halloween. I think it’s because of the feeling of spring in the air, the feeling of renewal and rebirth. Today it’s sunny and warm–I think one of our warmest days all season so far– so it really does feel like spring.  Also, Easter’s pastel colors, the bunnies, the eggs, the Easter egg hunts… all are so refreshing and youthful. This holidays timing during the month of April, when it is just getting warm here, really is perfect for a holiday celebrating Christ’s resurrection.

Take a breather today, spend time with friends or family, and celebrate life.
