To be fair, while there are a lot of douchebags and crazed fundamentalists around, there are nice people everywhere; you just have to look longer and harder to see them than the bastards. Most people don't want to hurt you, and people who you really value are precious because they're so rare, like an exclusive and beautiful piece of art. There are moments in life that make it worth living all the time, from the simplest little things (the sun setting in the distance as the cool wind whispers through the trees) to the grandest things (the Parthenon and the glories of architecture and human achievement and science and the new diversity of culture everywhere). So just because there are sometimes bad days, don't forget that life is beautiful, and that there's a million and one things to live for. Sex, wine, music, friendship, art, to name a few. People can achieve great things - alone, or working together - and the future is not predetermined.

Of course! Perspective and attitude are SO important to being happy. Once one has access to average sustenence, protection, and physical/mental health, I'd argue it's on them if they aren't enjoying life. All they need is a change in attitude (often from a friend or family member) to find the way to happiness.

Maybe a harsh generalization but I think it applies in many cases.

See what you people have done to me...

Anyway, I AM optimistic. Let's talk about hope: Hope is like a lottery ticket. Even if your chances are 1 in a million, better to keep in in your pocket than throw it away!

I invited a cute Lebanese girl over to my house for American Thanksgiving. My family usually has a large feast with an assortment of Jewish dishes, so it's sure to be a new experience for her. (It probably would be for most people!) Also Delphinus that song is pretty stupid, get out

Be happy and optimistic, Del, being the first member to ever get booted out their own thread isn't so bad.

I'm going to SJSU, which is a state Uni, which is in CA, which means if you establish residency there the tuition and fees are paid for by the state. :3

On a less jokey note - I was standing on a platform being insecure about my appearance and wondering why everyone was looking at me (they weren't, but I always think everyone is looking at me. good with making friends and being charismatic, bad when alone with strangers), when all of a sudden a train went hurtling past. The power and speed of it made me imagine the train running through the countryside, and symbolised freedom and independence from tradition, the timetable I'm forced to adhere to for school, etc. I really brightened up, especially as it reminded me of two fantastic songs by the Kinks, one of which (Shangri-la (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4DJ9YUYshE)) reminds me of where I don't want to be, and one of which (I'm Not Like Everybody Else (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VhfY_5YNV4)) reminds me of why I don't want to just get a finance degree and get some stupid house, car, and trophy wife. And I love the understated build-up in I'm Not Like Everybody Else.

...too weird?
