I used to get really depressed in high school. I’m not sure why. I think it was just normal teenage depression that everyone gets growing up.
At some point, I grew out of it. I think maybe it was around my second year in college when I realized that i just don’t get bummed out anymore. About anything! I think maybe my brain has a chemical imbalance – for the better! Nothing can get me down! I mean yeah, September 11th was a bummer, and yeah it was horrible, but I got over that in like a day or two. Does that make me a bad person? Maybe. Personally, I think it just makes me a happy person!
And it doesn’t take a whole lot to make me happy, either! When I watch TV I laugh out loud at stuff that’s hardly funny to average Joes! A few weeks ago I was watching the Seinfeld episode where George has Elaine take this IQ test for him, and man. I was crying I was laughing so hard. I had to pause the show just to let myself laugh. And I had seen the episode at least once before!
Sometimes I wish I could share my gift with the world.
