Even though I clearly have some sort of minor headcold (no voice, but a funny cough), I am in a ridiculously good mood. Look at my life: I’m a working writer, I’m at a top university, I am nearly done with my graduate degree, I have awesome, loyal friends and an amazing girlfriend, I have some of the best gear around with which to indulge my only hobby, I have a nuclear family that can’t get enough of me, I just got back from one of those “college events” that most people only get to imagine participating in, and I have likely found a project for the summer already. To top it all off, I have remembered that I own the best Ziggy Marley song ever to grace the stones of Sesame Street.
Could things possibly get any better for me? Only if there was free orange juice in the I-House study area. I think I’ll go and look. The way things are going, I might just score there as well. The fortune cookies said that I would be happy. Fortune cookies obviously do not lie.
Maybe I am just manic, or maybe I am having one of those rare seeing-clearly moments. Either way, I’d like to offer this pat-on-the-ass to the entire world.
