I am so happy right now...Happiness is a rather elusive state, and has nothing to do with joy, but right now, I am entirely happy. Indeed, I am.
"If I could find a man who would consent to marry me for a mere fifty pounds a year, I should be well-pleased. But such a man could hardly be sensible, and you know I could never marry someone who was out of his wits."
~Elizabeth Bennett of Pride and Prejudice
Just kidding. You all probably think I'm going to announce something terribly exciting. :D No, I am happy for a rather ordinary, and yet extraordinary reason.
Maybe it's because I just had a bowlful of Rocky Road Icecream... ;)
Maybe it's because I'm watching Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy propose to Elizabeth
Or maybe it's because I just ordered a set of 8 Charles Dickens novels with my graduation gift card and they are due to come in 2-6 business days!!!! :) YAY!
Here is a list of the titles! I've read...half of them, I believe. Can you imagine? 8 entire chunks of amazing Dickensian literature...I can't wait to bury my nose into them. :)
A Christmas Carol
A Tale of Two Cities
Ooh! It looks really nice this big! ;) I've read five off this list! So far (of these 8 novels) my favorites have been Bleak House and Nicholas Nickleby. :)
Ohhh....*happy sigh*....this is going to be a good night! :) ~Rachel
