    ^having a good filling breakfast is one of the best things in the day I reckon. I am grateful for my holidays too but I just wish it wasn't filled with studying for midsems and doing prac write ups :p

    Yes, a good breakfast = a good start into the day. My day didn't turn out so well after that though, but right now I am grateful for being able to soon sit in a train and listen to Coldplay to calm down.

    Last night I met one of the first people that I've befriended on Coldplaying, Rafael (Prospector on Coldplaying)! He's from Brazil and currently in Europe for a few months, so we got to meet in Paris! This is insane, and very cool. I never expected to actually meet him some day, but it happened!! It was lovely to meet him and I'm very grateful to this community and to Coldplay for allowing me to meet people from allover the world, people who generally happen to be super nice and lovely, by the way! Can't wait to meet more Coldplay fans this summer! :)

    Thanks. Actually, it was an evening trip and no snacks are served in our regional trains ;)

    This is awesome!
    This is my dream, there are some coldplaying members I'd love to meet, hopefully one day that'll happen.

    I am starting to get sick, feeling the nice rough, dry sore throat and cough coming on. I am grateful that at least I am getting sick now instead of having to deal with going to uni whilst feeling terrible... Yeah I agree though, I'd love to meet you guys :)

    Here is an Easter story. I went to mass today and heard a familiar voice doing the first reading. I was unable to stand because of my foot, got to see the man in his remote wheelchair doing the reading. He has ALS, I believe. Last I heard from his wife after not seeing him at mass a couple months back, he was bedridden with a kidney infection. What does this have to do with Coldplay?

    This is a very good man whom I'd only seen in church, but knew he was a pillar of the church. I got to know him when - I'd wound up sitting next to he and his wife at last summer's Coldplay concert when I couldn't stand due to my back and sat on the disability platform. I honestly dreaded that he had passed after what I last heard, and had tears of joy in my eyes when I saw him looking well today! That had even more significance given the message of Easter!

    I am grateful for the existence of the city of Paris which I used to visit a lot and which I now went back to after almost two years of absence. To this place I can say "you're a refuge, somewhere I can go, and you're air that, air that I can breathe". And I'm grateful that the spirit of this city is still the same as when I first went there almost eight years ago.

    my Love buttons came in the mail today! :D

    i didn't realize this before, but the ones they sell on the website are magnetic, not safety-pin style like the concert ones

    I am grateful for my preceptor and my experience at my final clinical placement before graduation. I had a wonderful internship with her and at the hospital I was working with, I learned so much in only about a month's time and I cannot thank her and our floor team enough for their work and teaching. Not to mention, my preceptor bought pizza on my last day to celebrate, something she absolutely did not have to do, but did anyway. It really made my day and I will never forget that.

    I watched a very disturbing WWII documentary on TV yesterday and it struck me that I ought to be grateful to live in a time of relative peace and stability on the continent I live on. This is something you can easily take for granted and then it is a striking reminder that a few decades ago it was the complete opposite...
    (Of course, war and violence isn't gone but seems to just have moved to other parts of the world... :pensive:)

    Yeah that's true but the world has definitely moved to a more peaceful state, it might not seem like it with all the media attention to conflicts and all. But right now is the most peaceful the world has even been. If you don't believe me then here's a video with links explaining the thinking behind this

    Mobile Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbuUW9i-mHs
    . Anyway I just thought I'd say this because we've made progress towards a more peaceful world already but there's still far more that needs to be done, hopefully if we keep pushing for peace and acceptance, wars will become fewer and fewer.

    But yeah I am grateful for whoever chooses music at my uni. I've heard more Coldplay being played there in the past 10 weeks than I have anywhere else... Like I've been hearing trouble and princess of china, songs that I have never heard being played on radio before. I am also grateful for other people. Like I was wearing my parachutes Coldplay shirt from the latest tour (pretty sweet of them to be selling tour shirts with their first album). Sidenote: did tour shirts from their latest tour cost you guys like around $50ish as well? :p Anyway continuing, I have just been getting quite a few people appreciating coldplay which is awesome. Mostly followed by "it's their only good album"... But yeah I was feeling pretty flat after a 3 hour physics prac and this girl I walked past complimented me on my shirt and it honestly made my day lol.

    yesterday i found an old back tire rack at a bike shop and got it for $8!! i've been looking to get one for quite some time now, since the front basket i had on my old bike won't fit on the one i have now and i use my bike for grocery shopping as well as just generally getting around. also bought some cable/zip ties and a plastic crate from Target so now i have a better way to lug all my stuff around on my bike.

    so i guess today i am grateful for the joy of finding used items for a cheap price :joy: :D

    Let's revive this thread (voted "Best Thread of the General Discussion section on Coldplaying 2017", after all !) :)

    Today I realized again how truly grateful I am that Kaleidoscope EP exists, the best Coldplay release in almost 10 years.
    Songs like Hypnotised and A L I E N S are so beautiful and touching. Hypnotised reminds me of when spring came, SJLT Live of the concerts, AICTAIY of warm days and the anticipation of the concerts, Miracles (Someone Special) of Paris, A L I E N S of Hamburg. All of the songs take me back to the summer of 2017, which was one of the best summers of my life :heart:
