if you're happy and you know it...

disclaimer: i apologize for any spelling/grammatical errors that may appear on this post.
i'm running on two hours sleep as i may or may not have spent the night hanging out with guillermo del toro...

as mentioned in my 'welcome' blog post, i have an unhealthy obsession with quotes.
to me, quotes often echo what we know and or hope in our hearts to be true.
for this reason, my phone, laptop desktop, ipod, desk at work, planner (etc.) are inundated with quotes.
this particular quote is currently pinned on my bulletin board at work:

is this not the most useful flowchart you've ever seen?
what are some of your favorite quotes?
i'm always looking for new ones to add to my quote book.
*yes, i have a quote book - don't judge.


ps. can we just take a moment and...

nwts = greatness.


  1. vanessa! it's arturo!
    love your flow chart.
    love your blog.
    came across this epic quote the other day:


    1. artie smartie :)
      this quote is so beautiful!
      i definitely wrote it down in my book o' quotes.

  2. Hahah I love quotes too.. I literally need them to get out of a funk.

    1. sometimes they just give you that bit of motivation you need to just make it through the day.
      another one of my faves is "i do what i have to do so i can do what i want to do".
      whenever school and work get to be overwhelming, i'll think about that quote and it'll put everything back into perspective :)

  3. I've seen this flowchart around the web and loved it! I can recall seeing it and reading it on a day where I needed to come in contact with these words the most. Happiness is really just that easy.

    I wish I loved Drake's album much more than I do. I do LOVE the song with Jhene Aiko.

    1. the appropriate quote always seem to appear when you need it most!

      and, i feel you!
      "so far gone" is still my favorite drake album to date.
      but i love singing drake, so i'm a tad biased, haha.

  4. I totally think the "no" after "do you want to be happy?" should lead to change something lol

    Abbi of

  5. i completely agree.
    you shouldn't be content with not being happy, haha.
