Jessie J: Who’s Laughing Now

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsxSxF3JKeU]

I think all of us have all felt the humiliation, pain and awkwardness in one way or another growing up. Looking back at my old photos, there are a lot of self-head shakes, question marks and grunts at why I was ever allowed to leave the house with my fashion choices. I’m sure we’ve all faced bullies as well; some of may have even been our own worse enemy growing up. I really liked this Jessie J song when I heard it on the radio because of the beat, but mostly because of the message. Now that I’m an older, more confident version of myself, I love to think about the past and just remember who’s laughing now.

Things that make me happy.

* Sushi with spicy mayo sauce on the side
* Cute babies that aren’t shy to play peek-a-boo with you
* Thinking you forgot your camera, but ending up finding it in the bottom of your purse
* Gift Cards
* The color purple
* Ethnic or unique pieces of jewelry
* People commenting or complimenting my graphic designs or blogs
* Fast-working phones that don’t freeze
* Choosing fonts for documents or images
* Fighting waves at beaches. Poseidon shall suffer!
* That fresh scent of laundry when it comes out of the dryer
* The feeling of typing on a MacBook Pro
* Satisfaction from knowing I picked a good outfit for the occasion
* Finishing a project, archiving that email and taking off the “To Do” labels
* Satin and lace
* Guacamole
* Getting a new toy or app that brings out my creativity
* Sales at Urban Outfitters
* Finding a great Netflix movie after hours of searching
* Comfortable flats
* Making cupcakes with my niece
* My niece. :)
