As I noticed the endless loop of it all, it occurs to me that even the dictionary doesn’t know. I don’t feel so bad. My quest to discover what happiness and joy are begins with this blog post. Well actually it began with me starting the website, but c’mon don’t be picky. While I experience moments of happiness and joy, I wondered to myself if this is something that can be longer than moments. Certain people, I’ve noticed are pretty much happy all the time. Next to nothing gets them down.

That is very interesting.

As I interview my subjects over the next however long it takes me to get the perfect amount of footage, my goal is to discover this within myself. Of course I may just discover that I’m over thinking it. Either way, I get to talk to my friends and family on camera. That’s pretty cool, right?
