Why are you happy right now?

Since I started the http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/off...right-now.html thread I figured why not make a why are you happy right now thread too?

I woke up this morning in a great mood ( not because I have a day off from work ) but I realized that I have no reason to be mad today. It's a beautiful day out, I played with my German shepherd for 2 hours, Played guitar for a while dyed my hair black the other day and I think I'm gonna keep it this way for a while. My girlfriend is the greatest. I finally picked a winner, my family loves her, my friends love her, we never had one fight. I'm listening to my favorite bands, My Dad's business has work coming up. I'm almost ready to quit my current job for a better job opportunity. I'm drinking an ice cold monster energy drink. ( im addicted to these things) Those are some reasons why I'm in a good mood today.

Share why you're in a good mood and maybe this will shed some light on others and be a moral booster/motivational thread!

My new headphones came today. ATH-M40fs. They seem good enough for my needs, and they didn't break the bank. things certainly sound better than they did with iPod earphones

I just discovered Revalver. And in terms of rhythm tone, it poo-poo's all over Guitar Rig.

^ Nice. Yeah man, I went to guitar center to check out a few pairs of headphones a couple months back and they can REALLY hurt the bank. It's pretty ridiculous how pricey they can get.

My work day just ended. I'm going home to do some recordings. I also just had an impulsive buy off of craigslist yesterday and scored a Carvin bass for a nice price, so now I have a new toy to play!

for me, there's MUCH more bad than good at this point in time, but I'm thankful that:

I got a great internship for the summer.
My big herb (for cooking) garden is flourishing
I was elected vice president of my school's chapter of ASCE
I'm jamming to Pyscroptic's latest album, The Inherited Repression
I'm dating an awesome, beautiful chick.
I have no GAS and I have top notch gear.
I have a great bicycle that I love to ride in the beautiful weather I've been seeing recently.

Just ate a Yorkie. I'm not talking about the breed of dog, btw.

For non-Brits who maybe aren't aware of this confectionery delight, it's basically a big ol' bar of chocolate. Just chocolate, no fancy flavours or fillings or any of that nonsense, just chocolate.

And a slogan which is controversial among people with little ability to perceive a joke:



This makes me happy, because it was ....ing delicious.

I don't have a 7-string any more and I like fat necks and single-coils, come at me.

Woke up and called work to see when i'm working tomorrow, they just told me to come down there and after I said I live 35 minutes away they still just told me to come down there and see.

I was in a pissy mood most of the day cause of that UNTIL


I heard one of my best friends most likely will be coming home from the marines for a few months. Just depends on if the school/training or w/e it is has a spot for him but he said they are backed up till july.


I'm happy as .... right now

I finally finished programming a drum track for a little cover I've been arranging

Now I just need to write a little 4 bar solo (I'm thinking a very 80s tapping lick will suit this song nicely)

Then I can record bass parts and wait until I'm finished building this guitar to use it as the recording guitar for my cover/demo

The wife is away on business, so I've got the place to myself. Got my workout in, got housework done- now time to work on some tunes and maybe finish-up my zebrawood pedalboard with my assistant Jameson.

I bought two new Toro lawn mowers for my business that I used today and they just kick major ass.

Also possible NGD Coming up for Church...?

I also think I mustered the confidence to ask a girl out in one of my classes, feelin good about it.
