Official Good Mood Thread

I know I'm jinxing myself terribly by starting this, but I'm sure there are a lot of you having good days out there. I don't mean to taunt those in the bad mood thread, but I thought I'd inject some positivity in here.

I'll start. I'm in a great mood because my choir's concert tonight was fantastic. An absolute rush... we did Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem, and it was just amazing to be part of it. My choir joined up with the Cornell University Chorus and Glee Club (on tour in China), and the Hong Kong Bach Choir, for a total choir of about 120 people. After an hour of holding my music in front of me, I can barely lift my left arm past shoulder height, but I'm grinning like a madman. Cheap pitchers of beer at the after-party were also nice

I too am in a great mood...

Something about beautiful girls, a beautiful girl, going for a ride, spending some time down at the shop, and that over the past few days I would have felt more at home in the really really really bad mood thread.

"Jinxing" looks like a chinese word

Ha! Yeah, I guess it does. It could mean "Gold Star." But I meant it in the standard English-language way.

I'm in a great mood because miraculously, even if I was awake 20+hours due to delayed flights, I'm in Shanghai and not jetlagged!! I woke up bright eyed at 6am, which is great. Now I'm just waiting for my roommate to wake up so we can get breakfast and poke around the city.

*gbcb: yaaaay, bike shopping!

I climbed a mountain today. My body is destroyed, but I still feel good, somehow.
