The Reason is you
so I'm in school, in the library not in gym, where I should be. Because I forgot shoes & socks, so instead of going and wasting my time sitting by the tennis courts for an hour I thought why not go and chill at the library reading my Art of Happiness book :) I sat down in the armchairs at the front (not as comfty as the starbucks armchairs though!) & perused through the latest issue of The Nation, which is a very interesting political magazine. so I read some articles on how the FCC is fining Howard Stern on his language & how the writer disagrees with that because of the free speech right we all have, on gay issues, the woman's pro-choice march in D.C. on april 25, and some others..
then I moved on to the art of happiness & time flew by. I almost dozed off a little but I caught myself & when I looked at my watch it was already 12. I do have a quote I want to put in here though from the book..
"If you maintain a feeling of compassion, loving kindness, then something automatically opens your inner door... Then there's less need to hide things, and as a result, feelings of fear, self_doubt, and insecurity are automatically dispelled. Also, it creates a feeling of trust from other people. Otherwise, for example, you might find someone who is very competent, and you know you can trust that person's competence. But if you sense that person is not kind, then you have to hold something back. You feel that 'Oh, I know that person can do things, but can I really trust him?' so you will always have a certain apprehension which creates a kind of distance from him." -Dalai Lama
Alright, so like 10 more minutes to lunch (SALAD YAYAYAY) & then math. hmpphh. School blows.
I'm not too saddened by it though. It's not like it's forever. Just suck it up & live with it for a few more weeks.
I hope it'll be warm enough this afternoon so I can go outside & play some more guitar & serenade the trees and flowers with my music :)
