What is something you do that makes you genuinely happy?

I want to know what makes you happy. An activity or something of that sort. Something you always look forward to and that you could see yourself doing all the time. If this thing is NOT your job, then I am curious to find out your reasoning of why it is not. I'll read and respond to all answers. I'm a 18 year old kid about to go into college and responding would really help me out. Thanks.

      Apr 7 2013: Great article. I find that really interesting and although I'm not sure that I understood all of it to the fullest extent, I definitely think you have a very technical way of looking at happiness. It's very rare to find someone who looks at happiness from a scientific point of view. Thanks for your response.
