    Not a darn thing.

    Haha yep some days are like that. Especially when 1 cup of coffee clearly isn't enough.

    Actually, I do have something on my mind. There was a guy on here some time ago; he bought a house which was a complete mess, even shared pictures and made us all shudder. :) He was going to redo it and resell. Wonder if he did? Any news on what happened?
    Love before and after pictures of things, whether it's a room redo, house renovation, backyard changes or body transformation. It always allows our minds to create what we could possibly change in our lives as well.

    Ok, obviously my mind is more cluttered than yours @Cowbellsandcoffee.

    Are you thinking of Tomas? Aka Bojack? He deleted the app but he flips houses as part of his income so I'm guessing he did a good job and is probably still at it!

    I have no clue who it was; I just remember his pictures and we were all cringing imagining the varmints hidden among the ruins. :)

    Currently: A sex (ish) dream I had involving a former friend. I don't know why my brain can't conjure up someone I'd actually want to see in my dreams.. or why I can't have normal dreams. They're always weird, twisted or nightmarish. :(

    Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence”
    ~Aristotle

    I feel like the term happiness today has become very skewed. I think it’s more of an illusion or a delusion. Your happiness never meets up with anyone else’s and therefore for them to be happy you have to be miserable. There is an illusion that you are happy because you give up on what you find happy In order to keep peace. But it’s not really happiness it’s just an existence.

    May I contribute to your reflections on happiness, in the only way I know how - which is longwinded and potentially alienating to my audience:

    Aristotle's concept of happiness was based around taking action (that's a very reductionist and simplistic representation by me of his work - Nichomachean Ethics). His overall message was that in order to lead a "good" life one must take virtuous action towards goals that are of importance to the self and society.

    Interestingly, much contemporary and emerging research, particularly those concerned with stress/trauma etc, points towards "taking action" (again, a simplistic reduction).

    I dont believe happiness centres around attachment to others but in the actions we take and the intention of those actions (oh Aristotlean virtue-ethics there you are). Its the link between intent, purpose, and action and the overall result.

    This has been my Ted Talk today. Signed - bored phd student on a tangent.

    Happiness is a serious problem.

    A friend who I've known 3/4 of my life's father passed away last week. We normally speak /see each other every week /on the very regular lately. He was never supportive of her life choices, and they had a rather acrimonious relationship. With the assistance at a care home he was in ,both she and her sibling helped take care of him to the very end. Normally she is very open and reaches out to me but now she is rather distant. She was not around when my mom passed away but that's ok. I texted her as I don't want to be a pain in the *kitten* calling her . I did say I love you and I'm here for you.* we say that to each other :) Our contact has been very minimal - and I feel sad and helpless.. is there anything I can do other than just let her be? I feel like I've done all I can... :s

    times like that i figure all you can do is tell them "hey I'm here and I'll never forget you"

    but sometimes somethings just have to run their course

    You know it's weird... I've always wondered why two of England's best fighters, Hatton and Fury, always came out to sweet Caroline...

    I thought it was kinda an important song for the British but never understood why...
