A very interesting read on simply pursuing happiness.
A couple of great quotes:
Forget about your life expectancy. After all, it’s calculated based on an average. And you never, ever want to expect being average.
What you should prepare for is mess. Life’s a mess. You are not entitled to expect anything from it. Life is not fair. Everything does not balance out in the end. Life happens, and you have no control over it. Good and bad things happen to you day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment. Your degree is a poor armor against fate.
The last one in particular gels with my now favorite quote.
