I’m only happy when it rains. Nah, I’m just joking. That’s an Everything but the Girl song, although the official title is “My Head is Only Happy When It Rains.”
I’m only happy when I am doing something fun, and I don’t think about my responsibilities. Like when I go on vacation. I don’t have to worry about getting up for work. I can stay up all night and sleep late. If I don’t want to do something, I don’t have to do it because I’m on vacation.
That’s why I go to Disneyland so often. I am a professional park crawler. I’ve streamlined my trip after going for so many times (3x a year, if not more). I know the hotel I stay at very well, I feel safe there. There’s a Denny’s, Coco’s, and Tiffy’s restaurants if I don’t want park food. Target and a CO-OP Network bank are within very close driving distances. There is a stop on the ART shuttle so if I want to, I don’t even have to pay for parking at the parks. Plus I can come and go as I please, as the shuttles are always easy to schedule. The less I have to worry about, the more I can let my guard down and truly enjoy myself. And be happy.
Because that’s what life is about: being happy.
