I think being optimistic is either getting your hopes up for something that may not happen or lying to yourself about a crappy situation. I'm much happer feeling like ill lose at everything and then actually succseeding or just excepting my horrid situation. I like to be happy but I also like to be angry...or at least like how I feel afterwards. Some people are scared of me, think i would win a fight tho I've not killed a fly in years, and i like it! I dont want to be deemed some dainty little girl. I hate crying in public and i love cold or rainy days more than sunshine. sorry if you have a problem world, but that's the way it is.
