I'm less pessimistic than I used to be, but I'd say that whilst I try to keep a more realistic/balanced outlook I still somewhat lean towards pessimism.



This song essentially sums up my mind most of the time. ^ :lol:

I live in the real world. Reality, (at least in my worldview) is quite nihilistic. Ergo, saying that i’m A pessimist is being generous. I’m more of a miserable nihilist.

When I visited the Museum of Natural History in Chicago [the Field Museum], they were selling signs that read:
"Stay Calm, and try not to become Extinct"
It was near the skeletons of large dinosaurs.

I liked the sign and had one made up when I got home.

I thought it was good advice.
