101 things that make me happy

This is part of my 101 things in 1001 days that I have posted about over on Livejournal…  generally I do not intend to double post on this topic but in this instance, this particular item seemed reasonably apt to go alongside some of the things I mention, specifically something I am posting about in the near future. So apologies if you have already read this during stumbling around the web, or is you have come here via my LJ profile, but still…

Additionally,  during the course of my 101/1001 I plan on doing this list twice more; once in the middle of the project and again near the end. I am curious to know what things remain as a constant on the list and what might change during that time.

About Nerdsbian

I am a nerd for ALL seasons. Ravenclaw...natch. I am a genderqueer Librarian who unsurprisingly likes reading...a lot. But I also love being outside too...sometimes even reading at the same time. Also animals, any and all of them. Never yet met one that didn't get on with me and vice versa. I do a couple of different voluntary jobs (animal charity related), I am a Brownie Leader and have recently completed my MA.
