Happiness all around by Hastride

In the second week of my Digital Storytelling class, I was asked to think and blog about things that makes me happy. Particularly, what exists in the internet that brings me joy. Well, it was hard to think of one specific thing. So I want to list a few. To begin with, Google and all it’s products always bring a smile to my face. I have been using Google Drive, Docs, Photos, Maps, and Gmail for ages now and I just couldn’t imagine life without them. They are life savers, especially when it comes to the Drive. I lost a very expensive phone about 3 months ago and thought I lost all my information that I saved on that smartphone. Fortunately, all my notes and important documents were save to the drive and was able to transfer most information from my old smartphone to my currently new smartphone, which was a huge relief and made me so happy.  Another phenomenon about the internet that makes me happy is the site Urban Dictionary. Urban Dictionary is the funniest site I’ve ever come across and the user’s definitions are just plain hilarious and always leave me speechless. Plus, I would totally recommended this site to the serious A+ student looking for fancy words to use on their college admission essay, the essay would be a big hit….allegedly. The third thing from the internet that brings joy to me is Youtube in general. YouTube literally has a video on everything you can ever think of. I am usually on YouTube to watch funny videos, music videos or catching up on some of my favorite Youtuber’s contents. Now when I leave the virtual world behind and come to reality, I am usually going to work then straight to school. My job is fun but saying it always makes happy would be a big lie, school on the other hand, makes me happy. I finally found something I love, programming computers and studying commutations technology, and that is something that will always make me happy. Even making this blog post makes me happy and doesn’t feel exhausting at all. When I am at home, chatting with my parents and brothers makes me extremely happy. I also enjoy watching WWE with my mom, it’s her favorite show, and she thinks the show is actually real and not scripted. The shows I enjoy and watch by myself are mostly on MTV, for example, Wild ‘N Out. When I am not catching up on my favorite TV shows, I am usually writing poetry. Poetry has always been something that I’ve enjoyed since High School and has really help me love writing in general. Last but not least, my favorite thing out of all of the above mentioned is SLEEPING! Whether it’s taking a nap during the day, snoozing my alarm for the 5th time, or sleeping all day on the weekends, I love it all and love everything that has to do with sleeping. I know this phrase is so over used in every social media sites and is very cliche, but “sleeping is my hobby”, and I know you’re also rolling your eyes because I said that but I sadly don’t care lol. Now enjoy this a GIF that expresses my mood after a good sleep.

My website

I made my own website a few weeks ago. However, the site is still in development right now, but you can check it out right here:


Overall, It’s progress for me.I am still thinking on what my blog should be about, but I already have a good idea on what it should be: The pros and cons of the gaming industry, the gaming community in general, and our lives in gaming.

Little things that matter

I am a mathematics education major and thinking about minoring in communication technology. I am a lower junior in York college. I think each semester is a new journey towards my ultimate goal of becoming a graduate. I am thinking about going to graduate school. When I stressed out, I like to color pictures to calm myself down. Here is one of my work. As a student, I use the internet a lot. It has become an indispensable part of my life. I use the internet to communicate with my friends, to do my homework, to find a meaningful explanation of a difficult topic explained in the class, to do research about certain educational topic like motivation, to do shopping, to order food online, to pay my bills and to entertain myself through movies, music, and TV series. I really like to listen to South-Asian music and love to watch detective movies and TV series. Some of my favorite detective movies are Se7en, Inside man, Catch me if you can, Sherlock Holmes, Gone girl. These things rejuvenate me, make me happy and help me to go through each stressful experience of college life.

Who am I… Where am I

When I first got to this class, I was really excited. I thought to myself this is a 101 class so it should be pretty cool. This is all true, but my one issue is that the people in my class are way younger than me. I feel like Chandler from FRIENDS when he changed careers.  I  know  that everyone does things in their own time, but its a little annoying lol.

What Makes Me Happy

Lately  all I’ve been doing is going on you tube watching music videos.  I mostly go on there to watch music videos or famous you tubers share their stories. When it comes to the music, I’ve always been a little behind with whats popular. Back in 2015 there was a video going around on Facebook that showed a dance group called the Royal Family.  Their leader is Parris Goebel.  I just find it so interesting how she started on Americas Best Dance Crew and has managed to make a name for herself.  She has also started singing which I find cool.  I guess that’s what makes me happy.  Seeing how people start out and watch how they progress.
