What are your pleasures of life?

Recommended Posts

It is rather simple, what things you do that causes you to feel super great but at the same time, people don't appreciate them as much as they should be.

For me it is cleaning my earwax with q-tips (cotton swabs). idk why but it causes me to feel sooooo good, and my friends don't see at as something that off the world. :3 Maybe it is me, but I just love it.

So yeah, what are your pleasures of life? Be it an activity, a food, drink, etc. I would be happy to know what things causes us that sense of fulfillment and pleasure.

I really like coloring. I suck at drawing things and the process doesn't really interest me, but coloring is so calming and fun, especially if you're doing so with gel pens!

Hmm never tried gel pens, but I can see the appeal of coloring. If you like it, then keep doing it ^^ for funsies is also a good reason

this may not be a simple or surprising thing, but traveling.  i guess the thing is, i don't have to be doing a specific thing, like seeing popular attractions or whatever, just being in a different place is so cool to me.  i just walk around and get the feel of it.  i want to go everywhere.  i've heard that it's pretty common for americans to never leave the country, like not because of money or work or whatever but because they just don't feel like it, and that's crazy to me.

I have heard this too, and I think like you. I love traveling too and since my budget is kinda limited my preference are cruises (cuz of unlimited food and I just love the sea) and also cuz I can visit more than one place. Only downside is that it is kinda quick, but it is cheaper and "safer" than traveling by myself to a place for the first time.

I love early afternoon showers. I grew up through a few droughts, even living in one house that relied solely on rainwater for a time, so I am very water conscious and shower maybe once or twice a week. The shower might be hot or cold, but the luxury is the timing. I just think there is something so nice about the day around 12-3pm that makes 'me time' extra special.

That sounds fantastic mate. As a environmentalist it makes me happy that people are water conscious, because water is a very important thing we need and not everyone has the luxury of having it as available as some of us have. Thanks for sharing!

Honestly, there are few things I love as much as carrots. 🥕🥕🥕 They're so crunchy and satisfying, just as they are! 
Another thing that makes me feel super great is american football, but I've never met anyone outside my team who doesn't think it's boring, scary, or both. 

I also think cleaning my ears feels nice, so you're not alone there. It's probably because the skin in the ears is so sensitive?

Once I knew the answer, but now i do not. But that feeling is so amazing for me that I love it each day with the same intensity.

I really enjoy the calm moments in life when you are not needed to do everything. Things like being up in the middle of the night when you're allowed to do whatever you want alone, reading, just listening to music in your room etc. The world is so fast and we always have the next thing to do that I just absolutely love those calm moments

Love your profile pic. and indeed those moments are beautiful. I would love to have them once per month tho ^^ no more than that. As someone who has insomnia I can tell you that sometimes you only want to sleep some nights. But I agree with you that the world want us to do everything faster. To maximize time. So when you can take it slow, relax and enjoy a good cup of cofee/chocolate and a good reading, it is blissful.

Biggest moment of pleasure : not being stuck at an art project :D When it's going well and i don't have a blank i mean. Art is my thing so it bother me a lot when i am stuck. Being proud of my progress

 

Otherwise : i love to go outside. Walk in the nature (or a rare city i actually like) and observe and discover.

Same. I love to write and it's frustrating when I can't because I am stuck. Also, I love when I finish something.

 

I also say music, in particular American musical. Don't ask me why because nobody in my family is into musical and I am not American. I can't even see them live. But I love the music, and the unique way of melting songs into the story. But I know no one who share my passion for that.

 

I also enjoy some video games, but my father says it's for little kid and I should grow up. I'd like to see him win Fire emblem Fates Conquest in the hardest mode. Then we'll talk.

^ This is so true. After being rly angry with myself and lots of days later I got through it. I like a challenge, but sometimes the challenge wants me to suffer. And for musicals, the Percy Jackson one I heard is quite good, the music and the story.
