Happy Passover! We did a really nice seder last night, using all the extra parts in the Haggadah. I also got to play the cello during the songs.

Why can't we just be happy? in General

I think we tend to notice more things that match our own mood. For example, I notice rude drivers much more when I am in a hurry, or already angry about something else. I notice coworker's laziness much more when I am falling behind on my own assignment, etc. So if people seem to be in a bad mood, it might be that your own mood makes it more likely that you'll notice those people, as opposed to people who smile and say 'hi' as they pass you on the street. (This of course assumes that there is no special reason for everybody around you to suddently get nervous. So I am assuming there was no recent high-profile crime in the neighborhood, or some other disaster.)
I usually just ignore other people in my day to day life, but in the past few weeks I've been trying to be more aware of my surroundings. I think people could be so much happier than they seem right now. A psychiatrist told me about a year ago that most people in the world are suffering from depression. I think that if people were friendlier and less wary of each other, everyone would be just a bit happier, because maybe someone smiled at them when they felt they looked awful or someone made them laugh when they were having a bad day.

I've been noticing how unhappy all the people around me seem to be(both strangers and people I know). I see so many people walking down the street or driving their cars and just glowering. And then in my school when I listen to people's conversations most of them are insulting each other or an absent third party.
So my question is, why can't people be nice to each other? At the very least we could smile at someone we pass on the street. And I wish people could be nice to each other, even if they don't like each other.
I know there's not really an answer to the question "Why can't people be nice and get along" and asking isn't going to change anything, but watching the world like this makes me sad and I don't know what I can do to try and change it.

I hate text messaging because all the people I know consider text messaging the same thing as instant messaging and I do not want to sit around waiting for my phone to beep. But now I don't have a cell phone so it's no longer a problem.

I got the reference!

What I major in depends on what college I get into. I found a college that would accept me a year early(I'm interviewing there this weekend) and I would probably major in French or Linguistics there. Either after that or if I don't get in there, I plan to major in Music Performance on my cello.

They show it so often because ages ago someone forgot to fill out the right paperwork so it went into the public domain, so they don't have to pay to air it on television.

I have been on this forum for 4 years now. For the first 2 years, everyone thought I was a boy, because of my name and because I never bothered to correct anyone. I have never had any trouble on SW(apart from an ex-boyfriend I had in real life trying to use it to contact me) or the Internet in general. I know how to protect myself. Also, my dad thought my idea for this thread was great. He helped me take the picture.

EDIT: And what is wrong with being an adolescent girl? That's discrimination over both my age and my sex.

shorthand in verbal conversation in General
Lifecrafter
Member # 4682
Profile #15
The only abbreviation I've ever used online is brb, and then only when my mom is calling me to come RIGHT NOW. I will use w00t occasionally in real life because I think it's a funny word. When I think something is funny, I usually type *laughs* or something like that. I don't hang out with people who use instant messenger or forums that much, so I haven't really had people use abbreviations around me in real life, though online I have encountered them far more than I would like.

I'm bipolar. All I have to say based on my experience is 1. Anti-depressants throw you into a mania and 2. When you are manic you are incredibly annoying and impulsive.
