Sometimes, you’ve got to stop and lavish your spirit with the thought of simple things that make life just a little bit better.

Here’s a list of 10 things that are just awesome.


Sandwiches wrapped in white paper.

These will always be superior to sandwiches that come in cling wrap or in those little triangle container things. There’s a reason why such a sandwich must be wrapped in paper, and I believe it’s magic. Paper bags don’t do the trick, it’s not the same.  Note: Brown paper is also acceptable.


Waking up before your alarm goes off.

Those mornings when your body just knows what to do and does it. No need to be woken out of a dream or listen to the deafening of that song that you swore would make your mornings better but now burns away a piece of your soul instead. It’s just you and the sweet sounds of nothing.


Chips (fries) that have fallen into the bottom of the bag.

You know what I’m talking about. All hot chips are delicious, there’s no denying it. But those 3 or 4 chips you discover at the bottom of the bag once you’ve pulled everything else out are extra delicious.


Turning on the radio to hear the start of your favourite song.

You’re humming it. You’re tapping it. You’re thinking it. You. Are. It. So you turn on the radio and lo and behold, there it is! You, my friend, are psychic.


Traffic lights turning yellow after you’ve driven through the intersection.

You’re running late. There’s traffic ahead of you and although the lights are green, you’re probably not going to make it. You edge closer, and suddenly you just know you’re going to be the last car across while the light is still green! Look at you! You’re a law-abiding citizen. Congratulations.


Being able to carry all your shopping inside in one load.

You know you should probably unload all of your shopping in 2 or 3 trips – but you’re tired. You just want to go inside and get naked. There’s only one way you can do that. You balance out the weight of the bags evenly, somehow manage to lock your car and waddle to your front door. Yes, your wrists and fingers are burning a little – but you’re about to be inside, once and for all.


I say you can have your cake and eat it AND save some to be surprised with later!

Your phone battery lasting you for the night.

Its happened again. You’ve gone out tonight with phone boasting 50% battery life. It’s possible you’ll regret this if you get kidnapped and need to call for help, but you like to live life on the wild side. You decrease screen brightness, turn off WiFi and shut down everything your stupid phone will let you. You get home with 3% battery. Crisis averted.


When your broken plate only smashes into big pieces. 

You don’t even know what has happened to your fingers, but they momentarily stopped functioning and you’ve dropped that glass plate. It doesn’t matter though, because it has only broken into 3 big pieces. No tiny pieces to stab you in the foot. It’s all good, homie. Grab another plate and cut that piece of cake you were heading for.


Finding the leftover whatever that you forgot you had.

Speaking of cake – you hid some in the fridge, away from your bothers our housemates. You’ve just found it. It’s not even mouldy! Mmmm mmmmmmmmmm! You genius, you. The taste of cunning.


Randomly remembering that thing you forgot.

You were chatting to  your BBFL about this show you used to watch as babies. She cannot for the life of her remember what you’re even talking about but it’s on the tip of your tongue. You know if you show her a picture of the characters, she’ll remember it and scream in excitement with you. You’ve Googled every possible term to find it. It’s just not going to happen for you, I’m sorry.  Wait! As you’re packing away your laundry, it pops into your head!!! THERE IT IS!!!!!! You knew there had to be some benefit to cleaning!
