Since nothing in life is static, I think you must ultimately just learn to change and grow to deal with it. I agree with Charles Schultz, "I think I've discovered the secret of life - you just hang around until you get used to it." I think you can have the best laid plans for your life, but until you learn that it's not going to go the way you want and enjoy the life you are leading, it's not going to mean much.
I think my friends and colleagues would say I'm fiercely intelligent, an incredibly hard worker, funny and diplomatic with a bit of an edge. I'm very good at calming upset people and great in the clutch - when there's a crisis, I'm usually pretty calm. That is, of course, because I've been through a few myself.
I'm fascinated by pop culture and whatever is the current zeitgeist not only in the United States, but around the world. I get obsessed with different cultures. I don't necessarily follow trends, but I love knowing what's trending. I genuinely care about the state of affairs in the world and can't help but worry a little occasionally if I think too much about it. I'm not sure that any truly sentient person can be 100% happy all the time, however, I maintain an optimistic approach to life and try to say "yes" as much as possible. If you're happy too much, you're probably either supremely enlightened or just an idiot.
