QUESTION: Are you happy? Why / why not?

  1. Mostly. I have a really stable home life. Supportive partner, awesome pet, good job, good friends.
    School blows. But that is temporary, so I try not to dwell on the suckiness of it and be grateful for the all the other awesome things in my life.

  3. Not really. Have a great job but moved far from home after graduation. I barely know any people here and the roommate I found through craigslist turned out to have a drinking problem. It is sad:(.

    1. If I were graduated and had a job, I'd move into a bachelor apartment. I can't wait until I have the money to live without roommates!

    2. @ 3a. That is what I thought too but if I got my own bachelor apartment, 50% of my salary would go towards it. That is just the rent. So if I add the utilities it would be greater than 50%. Once you get a car, pay insurance, gas and still have OSAP to pay, the expenses do not add up. So I decided to live with someone until I am done paying OSAP:(.

  4. Yes! I'm happily married, with lovely kids (most of the time. Sometimes I'd love to sell them to the first bidder. Hahaha), and in the last year of my degree.

  5. I don't remember the last time I was happy. I'm terribly lonely. No family, no significant other. I have many great successes but those are feelings of satisfaction which I wouldn't equate to happiness. There is a terrible void in my life.

    1. You're right. Happiness comes from within. You must choose to be happy regardless of the phenomena happening externally. Do not try to fill that void; accept it and let go. Do something new.

  6. Hell yeah I am! Admittedly sometimes I get so frustrated doing schoolwork but deep down I never thought I could be so happy.

  8. Not happy, sadly. Even though I know that I should be grateful for all the things I have in life and happy for my loving family and friends. I recently found out someone close to me is ill and even the guy I like is turning his head on me. I don't usually turn to my friends because I am a very closed off person and I don't like complaining. I just wish I could gain motivation and care more about school cause I am career oriented (or was...) but I don't know how to anymore.

  9. I am happy because I am not sad. I have never been sad besides the times I have lost family. Nothing really gets me down because it is all in the past. Even when I finish less than half of a final exam I am still happy. I cannot change the fact that I didn't finish, why should it bring me down?

  10. I'm not exactly happy, or am I sad. I'm just okay, and I'm alright with that. Been "happy" for me can come in many forms; no line at Timmies, happy, 90 on a midterm, happy, failing a midterm, still happy. I just try look at the more positive side of things. Or if I can't, I'll find things that would typically make me be "happy". Don't take things too seriously, yet not be a complete failure. I'm okay with being okay.

  11. Yeah, I’m relatively happy. Things haven’t really gone the way I wanted them to, but in the end I have succeeded in proving to myself that I can face numerous challenges and have the strength not to take the easy way out, cheat, or to avoid what I truly want to do. I would say in the past five years I have grown quite a bit while accomplishing numerous goals and think I will be able to continue the trend into the near future and beyond. I have also learned how to accept my mistakes made during this time such as propping up losers, not believing in myself, to just being apathetic to others with personal misanthropic beliefs. My efforts have been noticed by some of the best in the world for various industries I wish to belong and I find myself working harder to prove to myself I can be considered one of those people.

  13. I'm not happy at all. I have anxiety which makes it really hard for me to socialize and connect with people. I just started a new master's program and thought this would be an opportunity to start fresh. I went to the orientation week and tried my best to act like a normal person...But once again I've failed to make any friends and I feel more withdrawn and worse about myself everyday.
