optimism vs  pessmism

If you were given two concepts; optimism or pessimism. What would you choose?

optimism vs  pessmism

Are we all always optimist towards things. Do we have to be optimistic towards everything? What does optimism really mean? Why being optimistic is so important to everyone? Is it bad to be pessimistic? Why people think that pessimistic is bad?

There are so many questions about these two concepts; optimism and pessimism. Why do we want to apply these concepts to our lives and wonder if we are leading our life in a correct path. Are there any right or wrong answer?

These concepts will give an idea of what we think about ourselves and how we are leading our lives. Optimism means if you even have a hard time, you still have the power to fight back. Pessimism means even if your life is filled with little problem, then you think, it is the end of the world.

These two concepts can change your life. By changing the way you think, the way you process things, the way you take things in, and the way you take actions after you think. Your life will change entirely, if you become a little optimistic in your lives.

At first being optimistic can be hard because thinking everything can be ok is hard, but the reality is everything turns around to be ok. It is hard to believe that that's how life works, but mostly life is not evil as you think. For instance, you got fired from your job. The possible two ways to handle this situation is to find a new job or sit on your cozy couch and think the world coming against you.

You making the decision of getting a new job is being optimism. By changing your thoughts, you found something productive in your life. Again, losing a Job is not the end of the world. You are living your life in your ups and downs.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
