When was the last time you were happy?

It seems like an odd question, but I can’t seem to avoid it. I can’t really remember the last time I was happy; I don’t mean happy in the sense that things seem wonderful, but rather in the sense of contentment (that everything is all good). To me happiness over a single instance of awesome and happiness over the way things are in the present are two different things. Maybe they’re the same, but that’s a distinction I seem to have ingrained in my head.

(Above) Some odd thought I put in as a draft for this post, it really doesn’t mean anything anymore. It’s been almost two months since my last post and I think I’ve lost my ability to blog…kinda; I just need to pick it up again. It would seem a bit vain for me to start talking about myself (at least I think so), but I do need to get this off my chest. Since about March or so, I’ve been feeling that a university degree is more and more pointless to me with each passing day. The fact that I have apply for programs now is just troublesome with that in mind. There are a lot of things I want to learn and quite frankly, I don’t want to specialize yet. It’s either that or I don’t know what to choose to specialize in.

I love university. There is really no other place I’d rather be in at the moment, but the final exam season we just had was just…bad. Mark wise I did alright (average or so), but there wer two problems:

a) I didn’t feel like studying
b) When I wrote all my finals, I felt sick to my stomach

I’m surprised I did average overall since half my exam time was spent just sitting in my seat looking at my exam wondering if I actually learned anything useful (feeling that you can keep info from 4/5 courses isn’t too bad).

I’ll keep it fairly simple for this post today, gotta slowly get back into the groove of blogging after all. What’s happened with my life?

  • hard drive on my computer died so I had to replace it; lost some photos and music—-meh
  • really want to get into parkour/free-running now—-awww yeah
  • been reading a lot—–cause ya know, knowledge is power
  • going to be going to China for a month and a half—-worried and excited (I’m beginning to believe I have a fear of flying, oh and I’m going on my own for the first time) and I don’t have to see anybody (WIN! anti-social much eh?)
  • started a new project I call “Impacted By” and I basically put up photos of people who have had an influence on my life

This shot is insanely simple. When I first saw it I thought it was great. Now…it seems like a common shot

I like this shot because there’s a bird in it and it’s looking at something. Patiently.

I was pretty close to the bus in order to get this shot. Basically I was sitting right at the curb, I shudder each time I think of the possibility of the bus losing control and then running onto the curb and into me.

  1. Dang, I wish you would continue the train of thought at the beginning of the post 😛 I agree with such a distinction…

    I definitely sat there quite a bit in front of my exam for POLI 260. And that was one of my good courses…

    Excited to see photos from China! 😉

  2. Interesting… it’s funny that you brought this up, I was thinking about blogging about happiness as well. School is unfortunately dragging me down though
