Why does life take so much effort?

The problem with being a pessimist writing an optimistic blog is that it takes effort to find something to write about. Especially when you're drowning in bills, assignments, and responsibilities. The great thing, however, about being a loveable pessimist is that you always have lovely people around to be thankful for.

Take, for instance, my roommate. She's a lovely person- sweet, funny, nice, clean, pays rent on time and she's moving out to live closer to her school. I could be pessimistic about this but being such a lovely person, she's offered to help me find a new roommate who, fingers crossed, will be nearly as good a roommate as she has been. I'm choosing to be optimistic about this.

Unfortunately, life takes effort. It takes effort to find roommates, to scrape up the money to pay the rent, to balance your schedule, to plan for upcoming events, and to be optimistic. The good news though, and here's where we get optimistic, is that people are willing to live with me, the government is decent enough to give good tax returns to us poor people, that I have so many people who desire my time that I need to balance my schedule, that people have entrusted their teens to me to care and plan events for, and that I do actually have lots to be optimistic about!

Life may take effort but at least, most of the time, it's worth it.
