|11:17 am - imism|
(i think like once a year i post this as if it's a fresh revelation, but shut up.) i am a short-term pessimist and a long-term optimist. i expect today to fail utterly and be miserable, but a month from now i expect life to be bliss. i don't know why this is, and generally i am wrong on both counts. but it's how i see the world.
here is a quote from stumbling on happiness by daniel gilbert. "we treat our future selves as though they were our children, spending most of [...] our days constructing tomorrows that we hope will make them happy."
ps: shut up a month from now is totally long-term
pps: i am meeting people now who don't use livejournal, and i don't know what to do.
