College Life & How to Be Happy, Dammit! A Cynic’s Guide to Spiritual Happiness

Listening to: She Wants to Move by N.E.R.D.

And I’m a stressed mess. I have to pay $73.00 to be able to register for classes on April 15th. I have to pay $23.00 towards my credit card on April 23rd. And I am the proud recipient of $50.00 that has to go towards these bills. So much, for having birthday money. 🙁 And on a sad note, I have to move out before May 31st because after 15 years in a townhouse. They don’t want to renew our lease. Isn’t that dandy? Well, when life hands you lemons you just have to make due and make lemonade.

And on a lighter but much happier note, everyone should live by the greatest words found in a totally awesome book featured to the right called
How to Be Happy, Dammit: A Cynic’s Guide to Spiritual Happiness
