Let me interrupt my story! I need to get this out. I am happy. I believe that happiness is not the absence of depression, but rather it is self-actualization. Why do I think this? Because I am human, and I want to be happy, and I did everything I could to figure out what happiness was, what caused it, and what hindered it.

It was on my way to finding happiness that I denied the holy spirit. Even if there was a heaven, I would not want to spend eternity with you assholes.

Also my favorite use of the word diction is to point out when someone has used the perfect words to describe something. My favorite writers when judged on diction are Neil Gaiman, David Sedaris, and Mark Palmer. Christopher Moore gets an honorable mention, but can't make the list until his number of good books outweigh his number of boring books. That being said, Lamb is my all-time favorite book. If I wanted to sound a little smarter I'd tell you that Sophie's World is my favorite book, but that felt more like necessary learning than enjoyment. I have been holding all of this in for so long.
