know. You're probably asking yourself right now, "What the fuck does a 21-year-old kid from middle America know about life?" If you answered "not very much," then you're right. I don't know a whole lot about life because I haven't lived a whole lot of life.

I've read a lot of Aristotle, Descartes, Nietzsche, and other great thinkers. One thing they all had in common is that none of them a damn clue what life is all about either. They all just had enough balls to stand up and say "Hey, traditional thinking, you've got it all backwards." And, honestly, that's usually enough to get you heard if you say it loud and often.

When it comes to things that life isn't about, however, I know a bit about that. Life isn't about money. It's tempting for us in America to want it to be since, for now, we've got more of it than anyone else. We've also got more depression and suicide than the poorest countries in the world, so fuck money. A lot of petroleum engineering majors like to tell me that they'll be making six figures there first year out of college. As a philosophy major, I like to tell them that I'll be happy my first year out of college.

Will I actually be happy my first year out of school? Fuck if I know. But I won't be rich; at least I've got that going for me. Honestly though, I think happiness might be overrated. When you're happy, the only place you can go is down. When you've hit rock bottom, you can do whatever the hell you want. There's something liberating about being able to say, "No matter what I do, I can't make this shit any worse." Think of what you could do if you had nothing left to lose. I don't think eternall happiness is what life is all about, because wouldn't that get boring?

Well that's too simple to be any fun. I'd rather overanalyize.

Take it from someone who has over-analyzed for longer than you can remember: I sometiimes tell ppl that the reasons I like bondage and sensory play (flogging, spanking, nipple clampsetc) is that it helps shut off the brain. Meditation helps too.

Happiness is a choice. Things, circumstances and people don't make you happy.

Hmmm... I dunno... about $30 grand right about now, would make me very happy [and most other people on here too!] As long as it is taken in the context of getting out of debt and having money to invest in wisely to secure your future, that would make me happy from 'within'- therefore, I would be happy! This isn't greed here, just to be able to breath a sigh of relief for a change!

Winning millions in a lottery can, over time, make you very unhappy and has to a lot of winners!
