I am an optimist.  Not sure why I felt the need to express this today, nothing particularly of note has happened, it's just been another perfectly ordinary day.  I just thought I'd say, you know, being alive?  It's pretty cool.

I do not hold with the idea that idealism is something to be looked down on.  Having ideals, and striving towards them?  That's what gets things done.  Sitting around being mopey and cynical about human nature and the state of the world accomplishes nothing at all, except maybe to make you feel better about yourself in what is ultimately a fairly petty and shallow way.  And anyway, cynicism is BORING.  You can keep your "realism," your belief that dreams don't or can't or won't come true, your preoccupation with the things we do wrong.  I'd much prefer to spend my time exploring the multitude of shimmering, albeit slightly cliched, possibilities that stretch before me each day.
