I think I’m a pretty happy guy. I tend to bitch about a lot of things, but overall I think I’m pretty happy.
One of my favorite times of the day is actually the five minute walk between the train station and my workplace. Like this morning, when I was plugged into my earphones and my tunes, and I had a bounce in my step.
I know I had a bounce in my step, not because I’m an animator and I’m supposed to study the way different people walk and stuff, but because I wanted to walk with a bounce in my step as an expression of my joy. No kidding!
People around me are sulking and dragging their feet, but I’m walking at 1.5x speed, like I’m in a Charlie Chaplin movie or something.
It’s not because I’m extremely eager to get to work or anything (although I do love my job), but it’s because I just want that extra feeling of speed and liveliness. I’ve got Tegan and Sara playing in my ears, and I’m simply not satisfied with dragging my feet. I wanna feel that little bit of extra breeze against my face, and I want to bounce a bit.
I realize that it might look incredibly douchey to be bouncing and strutting to work, but if some jerk wants to resent me for being happy, then he deserves his unhappiness. I didn’t win the lottery or anything… I’m just happy for what I’ve got right now:
Good music, a job that I enjoy, and a wonderful wife and dog that I’ll see at the end of the day. What else do I need?
Well, getting the Diablo 3 servers to actually work during those rare times when I try to log in would be nice… but not entirely necessary.
