Happiness is not a Fish that you can Catch

At times in our lives when we may feel like we are so sad and lonely, we sometimes are able to overcome those feelings, and make ourselves feel happy again.

Today was an o.k. day. I got to eat some good food, which is a good thing, but also can be a negative because when I think back on all the calories I consumed in one day it sometimes makes me sad, but I must say when I am consuming them, it makes me very happy! Also, I got to spend time with both of my nieces, and also my nephew, which was fun. I also had two of my friends visit and help consume some of the food with me, which made me feel a little less guilty for eating so much, knowing someone else was eating it too.

Then, after we ate, me, Kate and John went to the East Point lighthouse and took pictures. I'm actually excited to get them developed and see what sorts of good things I hopefully got. It's funny but taking photographs really can make me happy. It's like your taking a moment in time of your life and freezing that moment forever. And the best part about it is, at that particular time when I shot whatever it was that I was shooting, I was in a sense, I am taking happy times and keeping them forever.

Sometimes looking back on photographs can also make me sad, simply because I may be remembering a time when I was happier then I am now, but all in all, I would never take back those times, nor would I want to take back that image of the time. Maybe one day when I am long gone, someone will be able to look back on my photographs and see what my life was like. I wonder what they will think? I wonder if they will know just by looking at my photographs who is who in my life, who meant what to me and so on.

I think I am going to make scrapbooks. I started one, but that one was kinda dedicated to one topic, I want to make more. Ones that I can have for all different occasions. Yeah, I think thats what I'll do...and as for displaying my photographs on here, well um, KATE....can you help me please? If anyone else would like to see some of my most prized photographs, just post it here, and if i get enough requests then maybe kate will be more then happy to help me out.

You know I'll help ya. Like I said, you just gotta get the pictures scanned in. I don't think we have a working scanner here. If we do, it's hooked up to Chuck's computer which means it's off limits to me :( Just get em scanned and on your computer, and I'll help you do the rest.

By the way, "Happiness is Not a Fish That You Can Catch" is the title of an Our Lady Peace album, right?

Also, I agree that pictures are good ways of freezing moments in time. Even if you can't go back to the moment, they help stir up memories, some good, some not so great, but all in all I think they are an excellent way of reminding you of times past, if you want to be reminded. Plus they're pretty too.

:( I loved that album. Its ruined though. I actually pulled it out to listen to in the shower today, and its got some kind of goo all over it, I think its hair gel and bathroom cleanser. Either way, I think that probably ruined it, although I could always try and wash it off and see if it plays.

Ang, you should get that scrapbook thing from Mandee and start with that. You know, the "School Days" one. I was thinking of doing it to be corny, but it would've been better if I did it with that "The Two of Us" book. Now THAT would've been a great Valentine's present...

kate: yes its our lady peace, and I LOVE IT...
steph: im very surprised to hear that your cd had goo all over it especially since you keep your room oh so clean! haha, dont be mad at me now...

scrapbooks are great, and i agree you should have done the just the two of us scrapbook, brett might have smacked you if you gave that to him as a gift but hey, who cares.
