    I just feel so happy

    and content with life right now. It's a seriously great feeling but it worries me. I just feel as if whenever things start going well they also start going bad. Hoping for good days ahead!

    My Life's Not Perfect, But I Am Happy

    I think I might be an incorrigible optimist. I'm pretty sure that makes me annoying to some people.
