No Need to Be Pessimistic, Be Optimistic

It’s cold out. It’s winter.  It’s my least favourite season.  Time to be pessimistic!

  1. It’s 2 1/2 months of cold.
  2. I turn 38 years old.  I’m soooo old!
  3. I have to spend a night at the in-laws.  What do I talk about? And in Japanese!! Ugh.
  4. I have a week off soon, but it’ll be filled with toilet training for my daughter. How tedious.
  5. I have to take a long train trip to the in-laws.  Pain in the ass with my daughter complaining.

Okay, enough of that.  I’m not a pessimistic person.  I’m actually an optimist, which annoys the hell out of some people.

  1. Daylight hours are getting longer now, which means spring will be soon!
  2. I have a lot of years left to do lots of writing.
  3. I’m going to be eating a lot of sashimi, drinking beer, and I can practice my Japanese! Great!
  4. I have a week off to do lots of blogging, writing, and when my daughter’s toilet training is finished, we can save money on diapers.
  5. Long train ride means lots of reading time.  I like that.

Can you brighten a pessimist’s day?

    2. You’re not old – I am!
    3. I’d love a chance to practice Japanese!
    4. Toilet training is fun! Okay, not so much.
