07/04/2006: "Wah Wah Wah, I mean, Happy 4th of July!"
Sometimes I can be a real whiny baby when conditions are ripe (re: my post last night)...anyway, I think we are screwed if we let other people effect our happiness too much. I have said it before but I really do believe we can *force* (if necessary) ourselves to be happy, or at least to have a positive attitude. Anyway, it's the 4th of July in the states, a big patriotic love fest and I'm supposed to hand out candy from the university's float so I better go put on my happy face. It won't be too difficult, the sun is shining and has been for several days; it finally feels like summer, now what can be happier than that?
