i FEEL like SUCH an ADULT.







i'm reading a non-fiction book of my own free will. luckily, it's amazing. so at least i'm not maturing due to something LAME, like...i don't even know. taxes? unexpected pregnancy?



did you know most people who are "depressed" are really just pessimistic?

did you know that a normal depression, like one you would fall into after a breakup or getting fired, can be turned into a debilitating, deep depression if you are pessimistic?

did you know you can make yourself sick just by thinking too much?

did you know that it's more optimistic to go get drunk after something crappy happens than to sit at home and stew about it?




i took the test.
you can take it HERE

turns out, i'm like a huuuuuge pessimist.




so here's the kicker: DID YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU'RE PESSIMISTIC, YOU WILL CONSISTENTLY PERFORM WORSE (IN SCHOOL, THE WORKPLACE AND SPORTS) THAN YOUR POTENTIAL????

daaaaaaaaaaang gina. i mean, i'm doing alright, but to think that i could be doing so much better if i just changed my thought processes a bit is flooring.









this is the author.
he seems pretty cool.
also, he is smiling.
good thing.
also, he looks like a
jewish guy from queens
on his way to become
a godfather.
so
i like him.

I'm very pessimistic TOO.

I didn't think I was.

But actually, if you think about it, if people take this test and are surprised they're pessimistic, they'll continue reading his book in order to change their lives...

You know.

I am not entirely sure how to read the results, but I think I am "very pessimistic." Sweet action. Also, what?
