“Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.” — Sarah Bernhardt

I haven't been this happy for this amount of time. It's the timing of everything leading up to 11|11|11, or so I'd like to think. Even as the Ethics at the Beach speaker on speed said, it's all about your thinking. If deception works, then so be it. It's that little push we need in life.

Then again, I think it has more to do with my environment. Ironically, the people around me have finally found their own happiness from within. It kind of rolls over to me.

My life is crazier than any blog I post, but it's good to downplay things. I don't need to talk about the weird coincidences and blessings in life, since I have a secret email account where I archive all the synchronicities. It usually starts with a screenshoot or photo with an explanation, like on this thing!

But how weird! Someone who hasn't talked to me in so long decided to IM me just now, saying how he wants to give up on life. I hope he positively copes with the madness that life hands to us. I usually deal with my troubles through arts and craps, like that random collage of quirky beings I cut up from science.

Albert Einstein said, "All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom."

I'm not being progressive with this song choice, seeing how it's about people who aren't fun-loving, but it really reflects the unintentional downers who must be left behind with the times:

Refinery29 horoscope is spot on for Gemini:
It’s been a long time since you’ve felt this good, so revel in it. You have a lot to be thankful for.
Yet today my professor said how he used to write horoscopes at a newspaper and how trivial it was.
