I choose happy

Dear Optimists,

Writing letters to fellow optimists isn’t all I do. I’m also a student. At the moment I’m writing my Bachelor project in Philosophy and History of Science (in Denmark, you write a dissertation that is called a Bachelor project).

When people hear my field of study, they see this:


Even though being a droid really speaks to me, this isn’t my reality. I actually look exactly the same as any other student:

Studying Philosophy has given me so much throughout the years. I’ve gained more insight and I feel more content. It doesn’t mean you have to read boring and dusty texts from Ancient times, philosophy is something you can practise yourself.

This blog, my fellow Optimists, is Philosophy. Being an optimist IS philosophy. Philosophy is how you choose to live your life; it’s the system of values that you live by. All of this is extremely important for your overall happiness.

YOU choose YOUR life*. That’s the beauty of it all.

If you’re interested in knowing more on how to choose happiness, please read this short article: Philosophy Happiness

Love and insight,
Nadia.

How to use a nerf gun

Dear Optimists,

Remember that I told you that once (okay, my last one…) I got a nerf gun for my birthday?

What is a grown woman (yes, I’m pretty grown-up, even though it may not appear so) going to do with a nerf gun, I hear you whispering under your breath. Oh my, I reply, loud and clear. The possibilities are endless!

Okay, I admit, it can’t cook for me. Unfortunately. However, pointing it at my bf, declaring nerf war if he doesn’t cook, will indeed get me dinner.

The other night I found out another great use for the gun. The bedroom was more or less alive with a constant buzzing. Five mosquitos had found their way in – FIVE! Yes, I counted them.

What else to do than to guard myself with my nerf gun?

So, what do you use your nerf gun for?

Love,
Nadia.
