I've had some pretty happy days over the past few years, but I think so far the best one was the birth of my son, my first child.

When my first daughter was born. I remember wheeling her out to the nursery to get her cleaned up. I felt so proud. That is one moment I will never forget.

Probably when I came out. It was both my happiest and saddest day. I learned that my family was not my best friends, but I also learned who my friends truly were.

So far it would have to be exam results day, last summer. I woke up at 4am to start refreshing the page, waiting for it to update! I got the results I needed so got in to the uni and course that I wanted! An outcome that will have a massive effect on the rest of my life.

Honestly couldn't pick one, there are lots of good happy days logged in memory.

My fave recent one is probably when we went out for a day in town, visited a couple of museums, bought a truck load of Mini Eggs, watched Avatar in 3D, listened to my fave music on the bus. Got home and watched the new Lost (addict you see ;)). A constant barrage of happy small things does it for me.

Best day..so FAR....the day I got the job offer that will see me emigrate UK to US, in the next 2-3 weeks. It's the perfect job for me, in a place I've looked at from afar for the better part of 20 years.

Watching Avatar in 3D is one of your happiest days in your life? Man, I love Lost as much as the next guy but Avatar? I don't get what people love about this film. By the time the 3d action finally started, I was so bored by the horrible dialogue, rehashed plot, and unbelievable bad acting, I didn't even enjoy what should have been the greatest action sequence ever filmed. Birth of my daughter and son, tied for me.

July 5th, 2007 - the day I fell in love for the first time, as corny as it sounds. Nothing good has happened these last three years since then.

Oh heavens no, I thought the story was cack and the effects grew tiring but I just enjoyed watching it with my girlfriend and it was part of a great day for me. Never going to see it again.

7th December 2007. I woke up late but in time to go for christmas dinner with friends from university halls. Then my sister who I hadn't seen in months came to visit, we had tea and then a bunch of us went to the Christmas market. Came back, watched a film with friends then sat up all night talking with the guy I liked, kissed him at 7am the next morning, he kissed me back.

I was wonderfully happy all that day.

And not so much a day, but a moment, the first time I told a boy I loved him, and he told me he loved me too. Wonderful, and completely unexpected.

April 1st, 2010, when I found out I had been admitted to The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania for my undergraduate studies. It was the product of all my hard work, and the one goal and dream that I had came true on that day.

Right about now, I'd have to say April 5th (5 days ago), when the girl of my dreams, my best friend, said yes to us dating. She's also my first girlfriend...so yeah. :p

easily the birth of my first child.

rare to get the same feelings as that day although the birth of my 2nd child did pretty much the same thing :)

The first day of my Honeymoon after getting married. My phone didn't work for ten days. Glorious.

Prior to that, probably any given day my freshman and sophomore year in college.
