Let’s try to be happy.

Hi, all!

I will attempt to cheer you all up. It’s been a long few weeks.

Ramble of the Day

Yesterday was not fun for Tottenham fans around the world. In fact, the last few weeks have not been. I figured, with today’s ramble, I could try to focus on some positive things; these are not Spurs related, because I feel you could all use a small distraction.

I googled “things that make people happy,” and I will now share some of the results. Feel free to share some of the things that make you happy in the comments, and as always, keep it within those guidelines we have for the comments. Also feel free to wallow if you must. I cannot dictate how everyone works through these things, but if this group has ever earned a nice things ramble, now is the time.

Here is a video of a group of puppies that are obsessed with a young child.

After several minutes and looking at either pictures of animals or children, though, I was not satisfied. What if people like more than just animals and children? I thought this would be much easier. (This is maybe something Mauricio Pochettino or Daniel Levy said once in the last few months.) I have searched harder. Now, here are my results.

Chin up, everyone.

A personal pick-me-up, and a reminder that it could always be worse.

It has been more than an hour and this is all I have. Enjoy it, and pass on the funny and nice things.

tl;dr: I tried to find you nice things. I hope it worked.
