personal happiness is so important in life. a lot of the time we don’t make decisions that we know will make us happy in the short-term because we’re unsure of their long-term effect. if we played by those rules about everything, we would be waiting for better, more promising decisions to come up to make us happy.
spontaneous choices that result in our happiness shouldn’t be overanalyzed. we shouldn’t have to spare ourselves the feeling because we’re scared of the future. if i’m unhappy and something comes up that will ensure my happiness, even if it may only be for a short amount of time, i’m going to take it.
don’t be left wondering what if. no one has a better hold on your happiness than you do, and the people who judge you for it are the ones who are disappointed in their own choices and didn’t try to change them.
just do it.
WHY IS IT SO FUCKING HOT WE’RE NOT IN AFRICA.
and by fabulous i mean terrible.
i went to the library to get my books for the assignment. while i was picking out books, i made two piles: one of books that i wanted to check out and one of books that i took off the shelf and ended up not needing.
i’ll give you one guess which pile i checked out.
oh, and the library closed half an hour ago.
me since like 8:30 tonight.
unless it’s for book arts and i can’t find any legitimate history of my typeface on the internet and have to actually go to the library for paper-worthy information.
i don’t even know what i did all day.
a majority of the spontaneous gifts i receive have something to do with either disney or elephants. i’ve become the girl defined by her interests, although calling elephants an interest is a stretch.
anyway, the other night when i was babysitting at my dad’s house, he gave me these paperclips. needless to say i happily pocketed them and proudly displayed them on my desk when i got back to my room at school.
i didn’t expect to actually use them, because that would mean giving them to someone else who would most likely think they’re adorable for approximately thirty seconds and then proceed to lose it or throw it away.
that was until today, when my stapler jammed for the twenty billionth time and i decided to not use my teeth to fix it and just plan to buy a new stapler sometime in the near future. so for now, the elephants are holding my papers together.
writing “3-5 double-spaced, typewritten pages” on plato’s republic and wrecking my brain in the process.
cool that i’m able to firmly believe something one minute and then read another paragraph and forget my previous logic.
raping my brain oh ten.
