Happiness is.....

....watching old Fox Spider-Man cartoons on YouTube and eating some sloppily made egg and bulk meat (corn beef I think?) sandwiches.
The happiness is only temporary though. After the cartoon ends, I have nothing left to watch. After I have finished eating the sandwiches, they are gone. All happiness is only temporary.

On the other hand, joy is everlasting. Unlike happiness, it's more than just a feeling. You can have it when you mourn or are excited. It can feel like it comes deep within you, and you may not be able to explain it when your current situation dictates that you should be angry or depressed. Joy is the result of when you no longer feel guilty from your wrong doings. You acknowledge the forgiveness of God and experience His love. And it strengthens you. Joy does not make sense, but you know it's good.

You [God] will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)

In Heaven, I'm going to eat a humongous sandwich.
Actually, I think in Heaven there will be better things.

Tuesday - September 12, 2006

Well, the Terriblelands is more than one. That kinda went fast... and slow at the same time. Meh doesn't matter. Also, another year passes by 9/11, the marked day that will always be engraved in our minds (thanks to the media's constant replays) of the tragedy that hit pretty close to home. Sometimes things seem so meangingless.

But life's not. Thank God He didn't make it that way.

I'm pretty sore from last night. Played hockey at my church, the first night of the "season." But it felt good, and I got to run around so I'm content with the pain (if you're in the area, drop by at 7pm on Mondays to play). School still chugs away, and nothing out of the ordinary has happened. I'm trying to get involved in some paid research studies at school because some of them have pretty good pay (eg. $10 for 25 min doing a survey or whatever). That should be interesting. More or less.

Oh wait, something out of the ordinary did happen today. I saw a guy pee on a "wall" in front of more than ~75 people waiting for the bus at school. It seemed like I was the only one noticing it though. I should try and get a picture of the area so that my story is comprehendable. I was laughing, but disgusted at the same time. What a feeling.

Ok, go live your life now. Its passing by you know.

12 Weeks left

Well, the first week of le semester has ended. It’s been good. I think it’s safe to say that I will probably enjoy most of my lectures and classes, partly because from what I’ve heard so far, the profs seem interesting. Also, I probably won’t have to do any quantitative analysis math junk. So there. But I will have to do a lot of writing. Boo writing. Boo it to the core. Boo. Bu, wo shi Jianada ren. Or Huaren

Well the first week of school has ended. It’s also been bad. I’m a little peeved at all the people. After taking the summer semester (bad grammar, I know) this fall semester feels like sardines. I mean this especially literally when on the bus. I blame all the returning students who have come back from work, and first years who just clog up everything. Good job people. You just made my life slightly/barely/noticeably miserable with your humongous backpacks and slow walking/standing in the middle of hallways/stairs/paths/doors. I need a big stick to poke or swat people who don’t know how to get their feet out of first gear. Grr.

And now something completely unrelated, if you ever need to do special printing/photocopying etc, don’t go to Quad Books in the Maggie Benston Centre. You may as well just call me up and ask me to kick you as hard as I can in your behind. And I can kick very hard. Bam!

But DO go to the Campus Printing Centre shop at the Cornerstone building. That owner is soooooo nice/personable/helpful. And its clean. And you don’t need to leave your backpack by the door. And it’s buttloads cheaper than Quad Books.
So remember: Quadbooks?
Campus Printing Centre at the Cornerstone?

Saw gas for 100.0 ¢/litre today. Wow.
