Eudaimonia. Happiness. Fulfillment. Flourishing. Prosperity. Aristotle, despite the nonsensical lecture notes in which this concept arises, really whipped up a frenzy with this one. Dumbed down, he says that human beings desire happiness in life and then painstakingly breaks down the different definitions and means to those different ends and pretty much everything that could…Read more Happy Lies
My friend just started his blog. Support him if you will!
Thanks for visiting!
This blog will be the result of my random tirades, shower thoughts and occasional observations. I do my best to not create word soup, but make no promises.
I hope you enjoy the progression of my thoughts through life and are entertained by the preview of what’s inside my head.
While this remains a hobby of mine, I will try to dedicate a great amount of effort in maintaining regular updates or posts.

But I'm a weirdo and I own it! And I know I'm supposed to have people like but I don't really…Read more Juxtaposing Me with Me
Today I was told by a number of individuals that I was a bonafide asshole. It's bothering me still, hours later. But what's bothering me more is that I met a girl two nights ago and now I can't forget her. I was chilling all through 2018 and fall 2017: no feels, no talking to…Read more Why?
I am not sure what to make of this as an omen: is it good or bad that I am awake, through the night, at the time at which I usually wake up to begin the day? I didn't stay awake an entire night throughout 2018, or at least not the fall semester. (Who remember…Read more First All-Nighter of the Year
