It’s really hard for me to sit here in front of my computer with a large white screen in front of me and try to put into words what my experience here is like. I learned in school that there are two types of experiences that circle around two types of happiness. The first is the most common, and it is what we normally use to express a happy moment, which is retrospective happiness. This is like me going to the beach and then thinking how cool it will be to tell all my friends back home about this super cool place. The second is momentary experience and the happiness that arises from that is often much more powerful. They are both necessary in order to process the countless series of events that we call life, but we often focus on the retrospective happiness because it is easier to express to others.
