always take note of what makes you happy. don't let anyone take that happiness from you.
happiness can spring from anywhere! balloons don't cost very much. get yourself some, for happiness' sake. then give some away to someone else who needs a dose of happiness.
don't be afraid to express who you really are. if you feel like being weird, then do it!! what if it isn't weird at all, just someone else's opinion of what constitutes "weird"? then you would have missed out on all your fun weirdness, for no reason at all!
