it’s safe to say that i’ve been feeling happy lately. well, not really happy happy, but at least content. relatively stress-free. the right amounts of stress balanced with ample breathing room.
we’re done with the dance (which was successful, after months of rigorous planning and stress!); we’re almost done with the 2nd issue of TBF (at least my part is over and done with); we got to the octofinals of that last debate competition (and the next one’s not until mid-December). also, i just came home from a super chill day in UPLB for a chemistry speech competition. pretty nerve-wracking but it really cleared my mind.
i don’t want to overthink this right now because overthinking happiness or contentment always makes me sad.
Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. (Nathaniel Hawthorne)
i think i’m actually getting the hang of it.
