An entry? Intriguing...

This is going to be an actual post about today. It was fun.

English was so much fun! Leighton D. convinced me that Alexandra's and Atticus' style of parenting produced a child that was bad either way. Then for fun I decided that Alexandra's style was better and people debated with me. Tucker said that lying isn't so bad and I agreed with him, corroborating on his answer.

Lunch was okay. I was going to go to Ms. B's room but I had work to do. And bells, so I stayed with Mrs. S.

Math was fine. Social Studies led to some hilarious results (among them: "Salt Lake City, Idaho". Not only was Salt Lake City wrong, but IDAHO!?!?). I forgot where Virginia City was, but I still got 4 points...

Core ext. was okay... so that was basically my day.

Quick philosphical question (Damn my spelling): Do you think happiness is found with someone, alone, or either or? Do you think finding happiness is finding someone? I think it just depends...

....henry.
p.s. don't b suprised when emylyn, devon and frances and many more call u that. i'm a good messenger. lol.

Abby said...

huh, interesting question...

I think either, because sometimes being alone is when you make the most discoveries about yourself, and I think the sense of knowing yourself better is a deffinate lift. But happiness can also come from being with someone, the kind of happiness varying depend on your relationship wityh the person...

i think we should all be friends and love and cherish eachother, all of our special ways are so unique and wonderful! now, lets hold hands!

Carissa said...

you did all that in English for FUN??? hmm.. i hadn't thought of using class discussion for fun before. i must experiment with this sometimes... i was having fun watching and listening to the "Debate" it was cool to analyze and whatever.

i think happiness is whatever you make of it and whenever you make it.

Well, if happiness is the state of being happy, and the state of being happy is just a weird quirk of human nature where chemicals are released when when something happens that our brain thinks is good. Thats like a drug. So happiness is like being high, and the search for happiness is an addiction. Woah, I'm depressing me.

shut up, jesse.

Abby said...

yeah, seriously, your making sad chemicals zoom around my brain, and it isnt fun.

oh, that reminds me, there's this really good movie called "What the Bleep Do We Know", or something like that, and its really REALLY interesting; all this stuff about hormones and chemicals and god and quantum physics... its so cool

happiness is not ANYTHING, just as an apple isn't an orange

but then again, happiness is inside someone; it's inside yourself, not anyone else

happiness is inside you, but certain things can provoke it, or it may be simply provoked by nothing at all.

hong said...

and wow...your blog has stained my innocent mind with curse words!

For those who would rather be ignorant to their own faults and problems and issues, it is neither. Normally, I get my issues and stuff pointed out to me, and when I am alone I tend to find even more faults about myself. Happiness is a temporary thing that is unavoidable and undesired, yet wanted at the same time. Emotions suck. Hormones suck. The world is $#!% and diing is just an easy and simple solution that many wish to take. Even when they seem perfectly content or happy.

All the "science" in the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" is ALL fake. Trust me. Popular Science wrote an article about it a while ago. Then they talked to real scientists about it. Everything in that movie is fake.

Sorry.

Awww, Ali. . .
Lol, Henry!
HAHAHA!!!!
Jesse, you're hilarious. Really!
I think happiness can be found with someone. People can make you happy depending on what they do and who they are.
But sometimes a person is happinest when they're alone with no one to bother them, free to ponder about how the universe was made, or whatever else concerns then at the moment.
Happiness can also be finding someone. But that someone has to be very special.
I'll leave you with a quick note. . .
YAY FOR HAPPINESS!
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Randomness, hyperness, and happiness (the irony of it all. . .),

Jen said...

Well, it can be either depending on who you are. But, personally, I find happiness as being with someone. *wink* Sam knows who I'm talking about...

No, but seriously. I hate lonliness.

Or maybe happiness is a day when your French teacher doesn't take your book away for reading in class. I wish that day would come.

don't yall think its funny how ovbiouslly self-centered sam's question was? it was ovbiously not some random question, but about him!

Yeah not putting my name said...

Ummm...anonymous, or should I say dumb@$$, of course it was everything is.

Anonymous said...

Please, you're all wrong! Happiness is morning and evening, daytime and nightine too! For happiness is anyone and anything at all that's loved by you!

Abby said...

this anonymous thing is really starting to get to me; you know, no one's going to, like, murder you for saying who you are as well as stating your opinion. And besides, then if someone wants to respond, they have to be like "to anonymous # 3" which is really annoying and requires counting on everyone's part.

Abby said...

oh, and as one more point about the anonymous thing, I'm far less likely to "trust you" if you dont even feel like saying who you are.

Sorry.

Anonymous # 6.28318530716... said...

well, who's counting? What's the plural of "anonymous"?

Abby said...

I could be wrong, but I don't think there is one. it's an adjective.

Everybody Dance Now said...

Abby I tend to agree with you, but in certain cases, and I have done this, people want to say something out of character or something incriminating, I guess, and wish not to be known who they are. Kind of like publishing poetry or stories or letters anonymously.

Everybody Dance Now said...

And are you signed up for the eighth and I think seventh grade and eleventh grade mentor mingling session thing.

serena said...

what is happiness anyway?

Jesse said...

If you wanted the answer you were looking for from me, you should have asked, "What things in life create happiness"
And then I'd have answered that it really depends, which is a very helpful nonanswer.

Jeff said...

I refuse to answer the question based on the grounds that it could be used to incriminate me in the future.

Abby said...

heck yes i am! are you?

Dain said...

Happiness is finding somone, or just being with some people. I am happy when I hang out with my freinds. It makes me happy just being with them, and seeing them happy. I do not think this question was self centered and these ananomyous people can say what they want. This is a public blog, and they have the right to express their veiwpoints as well.
