December is one of the happiest months of the year, and my goal for December is to find this happiness and stick with it. Hopefully it’ll help pull me through the rest of the year. On Wednesday in homeroom, Mr. Cassagne explained to me, Maria and Hannah how it’s practically June so we have nothing to worry about. Although his explanation didn’t really make any sense and was kind of depressing, in retrospect I realize that his outlook on life is ideal for my pursuit.
This weekend was one of the happiest weekends I’ve had in a while, but last night while walking home with Emmy, Milo and Sarah, I couldn’t help missing summer dearly. Why these thoughts came to my head, I’ll never know-just minutes before we had been enjoying the sights of Christmas time around Palmer Square-but I do know that when I got home, I was content, regardless of how upset I was that it wasn’t actually summer.
Milo told me once that when he’s home, he’s always happy. Even if the night consisted of walking up and down Nassau with no real destination in mind, by the time he gets back to his house, he’s satisfied with his life. This is his main objective behind finding a happy school-he envies us at PHS because he feels as though we’re always happy. I’m not going to argue, I’m comfortable at my school, and although I’m stressed out there, I always have a face that I’m looking forward to seeing. I’ve come to the conclusion that Princeton is either one of the happiest places or filled with some of the happiest people.
Now, onto December. It’s not so much the holiday cheer that I love as it is all of the fun stuff that happens in December. I’m not going to go into this month with the highest of hopes for myself, but instead with a main goal in mind-thinking about happiness. Starting tomorrow, I’m going to blog every day about something that makes me happy. Big events or small acts of kindness, and maybe even the occasional surprises, I’m going to make sure that the good things outshine the bad things in my life this month.
