There are few feelings that make me happier than when I find that I am quite engrossed in a really good book. I sadly do not have as much time to read these days as I'd like to (work and school, man...) but as soon as my schedule opens up, you bet I will go ahead and breeze through the books I have lying around my apartment. Now if only I could do something about all the books I keep on buying...

People had their own thoughts to share after Redditor Randomdudenotsuspic asked the online community,

"People of Reddit, what's better than sex?"

"Unable to speak..."

"Making your best friend laugh. I mean laughing so much, they're crying. Unable to speak, sweating, headache, deepest laughing possible. There's nothing better."


Seeing their face break out into a smile followed by peals of laughter is a truly wonderful feeling.

"Successfully removing..."

"Successfully removing that uncomfortable popcorn kernel from your teeth after half a day of trying, using just your tongue."


I can confirm that this is indeed a beautiful feeling. I highly recommend everyone experience it.

"Good hearty..."

"Good hearty deep laughter with someone you are comfortable with."


"Waking up early..."

"Waking up early in the morning, just to find out that you don't have to go to school/work today and can turn around and keep sleeping."


I think I must be the opposite––I always know when I'm off. And I relish it! Thank you, body!

"Going back to sleep..."

"Going back to sleep after accidentally waking up early because you saw your alarm won't ring until much later."


I think this one shows that I vacillate between pleasure and outright annoyance. Why can't I sleep the night through?

"A true day off..."

"A true day off, where you have absolutely nothing to do, nothing planned, and a completely open day to do whatever the f*** you want."


"When you're the first person..."

"When you're the first person to wake up and make your coffee and do something alone in quiet. As a father and husband with two people who HAVE to have the tv or computers or consoles running from the second they're up, I really love waking up early to silence."


Having lived with a roommate who couldn't leave their bedroom without turning on the television and blasting their music all day and every day, I can confirm that it's a beautiful thing when you finally have silence.

"I've never gotten that before..."

"Having a partner who fully accepts and wants you. Until I met my current girlfriend, I never in my life had someone who so fully accepts me as a person. I've never gotten that before, not even with my friends and past relationships."


"I met a girl..."

"I met a girl at a wedding this weekend. I was really afraid to go talk to her but a slow song came up and I had to at least ask her to dance. When I asked her she responded by saying, "Absolutely, I have been waiting all night for you to ask!" That felt good."


So what happened?! You can't leave us hanging after that!

"Whether it's learning..."

"Accomplishing your life goals and dreams. Whether it's learning how to braid or getting a raise. It doesn't matter."


Sex is pretty fabulous––or maybe I should say that it can be––but don't forget that there are a host of other pleasures out there for you to experience! It's often the little things that make life feel worth living.

Most of us have had a few jobs in our lives, and we've learned to be on our best behavior during the job interview.

But sometimes even when we're doing our best, we might make a mistake, like blanking on the answer to a question or spilling coffee on our pants.

There are other people out there, however, with far stranger stories.

It's so easy for us to get caught up in the negative things in our day-to-day lives, whether it's a bad day at work or an ended relationship, but it's important to remember what else we have going for it.

Sometimes the best thing to do is to listen to the people we look up to, and let their words help us move through the tough time.

Few people earn a living doing what they love.

That's why those in the workforce call showing up for work "the grind"–which implies labor-intensive tasks for long periods of time.

However, there are situations in which employees love their jobs and don't even call their labor of love "work."

They just happen to earn money doing what they love. Who are these people? Where are these jobs?

Every now and then, who hasn't found themselves falling down a Wikipedia rabbit hole?

Even if the sources of information found on the page are dubious.

This doesn't stop people from using it as a quick source of information when necessary.

And with links to other pages readily available, people often find themselves learning information which was a far cry from their initial search.

Gaining information that these same people would no doubt be much better off having never learned.
