Life is good.

Life is good. It is also very busy, kind of crazy, full of work and classes and drawing and homework with reading and sleep and suchlike filling in the cracks--but life is fundamentally, firstly, and generally... good.

I have noticed over the last few weeks that I smile alot more than I used to. A gentle smile, as opposed to a slight frown, has become my neutral I'm-just-walking-from-here-to-there-and-thinking-of-nothing-in-particular expression. I had come to accept that a slight frown is just my regular neutral expression, that I'm not a smiley person. I still don't think I'm a smiley person, but that does not mean that I can't or won't be "neutrally happy", if that makes any sense to anyone but me. Devins favorite joke on me is, "Stop looking so happy, Sarah." Of course he means it sarcastically, but seriously--I don't want to stop, now I've learned how. :D

Sarah, this makes me so happy! I totally know what you mean about neutral happiness as apposed to neutral slight-scowliness. And LIFE IS GOOD indeed! Hooray!

this is Mom...in Bre's account.

I saw some pictures of me playing the bells in bell choir absolutly scowling in intense concentration--I looked furious. Actually I vowed to be sure to smile every time I played bells forevermore. Yes, you can teach yourself a default expression leaning on the happy side. After all, life IS good.

Seriously, I love that you made that little discovery about yourself. The smiling one. I think that you should keep on smiling...it makes the surrounding area that much more bright. :)

And selfishly, yay for the surrounding area being my workstation! ;)
