Happiness is a weird thing, and I don't think your question can honestly be answered as 'yes' or 'no'.
If someone says that they're happy, what they PROBABLY mean is that they're happy enough.
They're happy enough to be content, and not go looking for other ways of finding happiness, or happy enough to
not wish they were dead.

If someone says that they're NOT happy, what they PROBABLY mean is that they have an overall
feeling of unsatisfactoriness pervading their life.

But it seems like people often forget how relentless change is. No two moments are ever the same.
So you could literally feel 'happy' one moment, and then 'unhappy' the very next moment.
But just because you're unhappy, does that mean that you never were happy or never will be happy?
We live in the present, but our minds usually live in the past or the future, both of which are things
that we have absolutely no control over. So I think if everyone truly lived in the present (which is difficult)
then everyone would choose to be happy.

Yeah, I'd say I'm pretty happy for the most part.

For some reason this girl Neon was in my head all night, trust me I've barely talked to her and I have no f'in idea why and what she's doing in my head.

If you are Neon and you see this, please stop this voodoo (you're probably not involved). Thank you.


Neon every FUCKING time.

And no, but I'll manage.

Pretty much so. I've got the day off, and I'm inside away from the cold, drinking hot tea and watching anime. Answer might differ dramatically once I return to work, but for now--happy!

In general, I am content. Not always "happy", per se, but I am perfectly fine with my life. Whether I feel "happy" or not depends on the moment. Right now, I have nothing to be particularly happy about, and nothing to be particularly upset about, so I am fine.

This evening, I will take my last final. I will be stressed while taking it, relieved when it's over, and immensely happy come tomorrow when I get to go home for winter break and start really enjoying the holidays.

My mood, like most people's moods, is fickle like that.

Overall yes. Every so often I get the usual bad day and feel like crap but most of the time I'm in a good mood thanks to my friends and hobbies. I always try to be in a good mood cause when I get in a bad mood I tend to stay like that for a while even though it's cause a silly reason.

Not particularly.

Having a hard time with my classes, so much so that I'm seriously considering switching my major. Work is dull as all hell and pays next to nothing, and my rent is about to go through the roof. Among other things.

... but I taught myself contentedness long ago, so for the most part, what I do have is enough.

Happy and grateful to be alive and healthy, yes. Happy with how I am currently living and what I am doing with my life? negative. It will get better though, I am doing little by little to ameliorate myself and solve the problems I am dealing with.
