    You are one of my favourite members of the forum!! Lots of silly humour which I like.

    I think the key to whether you deserve happiness is in the phrase de-serve. When you help others to be happy, i.e. serve, then you will be made happy in return, as per the law of karma.

    Actually, I think that the very act of intending to make others happy will make yourself happy... or if you do something which will make someone else happy later on, then you will be happy later on as well.

    So there are two paths to happiness: make others happy, and it returns to you, or make yourself happy directly, Both are fine.

    I love the idea of esperanto but I feel that there are too many flaws. For example there is no letter X in the alphabet because you can make the same sound using KS but they use C to make the TS sound.

    I hate it when the best idea is full of flaws.

    I am on a train overhearing the conversation of the people sitting behind me. And older German lady is teaching a little boy and a young man (both Arabic looking) some basic German words. They apparently know each other and have done this before - I am guessing she is a volunteer.

    What made me grin is that they are learning the parts of the face exactly like my 1 1/2 year old toddler. They also use a picture book.

    I actually thought that maybe it's best if I live a normal life, play video games, get an average job, have average everyday problems, get an average partner, average friend, be comfortably married. Live in a decent middle-class home.

    Then I was like lol. You have most of that already, and it completely BORES you.

    I guess as this sounds incredibly SJ of me to say, I'm worried I might lose everything if I pursue the music industry.
    I do have everything like that too and yes, it's incredibly boring. And I still want to purse the music industry. So...do it!

    yes! Yeah MacBook Pro is getting the new colors pretty soon. I am psyched!

    Black or Gold. If I do pursue a music production degree I'll have to pay a lot of money for an education and it's a gamble on my will to follow my passion and a little bit of luck.

    It really all comes down to the love of it.

    the safest plan is probably to play around with a DAW for now.
    Your Online Manic Pixie Dream Girl

    What is a manic pixie dream girl?

    It refers to "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." A pretty, outgoing, whacky romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.
