Growing older, I have realized that I am quite the pessimistic person. From my outward, exuberant personality people who do not know me would never think of me as someone who looks at the glass half empty, but, I must admit, I do. I have never tried to look at the world in such a jaded way, that’s just kind of how it always turns out.
