…I’m busy, you guys. I’m busy getting the end-of-term stuff done, I’m busy spending time with my family, I’m busy, you know, living my life.
I’m committed to the blog, though, so today, you get this. I’m spending a lot of energy lately trying to figure out why certain people in my life (most particularly people between the ages of 13 and 18, but a couple of adults, too) are working REALLY hard to make things WAY more complicated than they really need to be and who are, as a result, miserable most of the time. My English classes spent a good portion of this week in discussion about why we seem to think that it’s much easier to be miserable than to be happy, and I find I spend a lot of my time trying to convince them that each requires the same amount of work, but one pays much higher dividends…

I’ll grant you that the path isn’t always nice and straight, but it’s rarely as convoluted as some people try to make it. Just sayin’.
Happy Friday, Y’all!
