101. What does happiness/joy feel like physically?
Happiness is the feeling that comes from fun. When you live purely in the moment, and the sorrows of the past and the worries for the future, are not in your mind. It comes when you are completely absorbed. When creating or viewing art. Working on a math problem, and then, solving it. Playing a video game, reading a book, having an interesting conversation. Physically, it feels like a weight has been lifted. It feels like you can lean on the people around you without fear. It feels like your muscles pull on your bones with less urgency.

Why I Love Livejournal!

All right, f-list!

As you know, a lot of people are jumping ship for dreamwidth and tumblr and I'm going to put my foot down and discuss why you should stay! I use my livejournal for several things. I think the best art and graphics in the world can be found through graphic maker comms. I think livejournal also attract writers, and I mesh well with writers. But best of all, LIVEJOURNAL HAS THE BEST BLOG SUBSCRIPTION SYSTEM. At least, compared to Tumblr. (Maybe this post will drag some people off of tumblr?)

I don't read the newspaper guys, I read my lj feed. I read the news blog dis-info and feministing, which I find both extremely informative and very left wing, though you can sign up for all kinds of new feeds. I'm watching the Daily Show's blog which sends me tons of Jon Stuart Videos. I'm watching comic strip feeds, Nasa science and Nat geo feeds, and I'm watching certain tags on lj comms that post about 20 stories a day (I watch certain tags because I don't want my feed to be flooded.)

Feeds are incredible, and I don't think many people know about them. But they basically allow you to watch any blog you feel like through lj.

To add a feed, go here.

My favorite feeds are:

daily show;; links to new jon stuart videos! there are about five per day and it gives the summary of each so you know what you're playing.
disinfo;; a solid news source with interesting economics, political, and world news. They some really interesting things compared to the other, drier news feeds.
feministing;; basically, all the news of sexism and a pretty empowering blog. the women who write for this are pretty damn smart and perceptive. This blog provides weekly links and summaries to the most important news involving sexism, abortion, women's rights, and violence towards women.
pearls before swine;; my favorite newspaper funny ♥
xkcd;; my second favorite newspaper funny!
nasa science;; really interesting outer-space stuff!
nat geo;; ohh the pictures Q_Q

It's a great news feed and relaxing to read! I always find something interesting every day, and I hear about a lot of things before my friends. It's important to be informed on all kinds of issues.

In addition, the best comms are ontd_political (they put up TONS, so watch only the tags you are interested in!), useless_facts, catcheslikefire, and greatpoets.

To go on, umm, because I don't have a paid account, there are some feeds that I was wondering if someone with a paid account would turn into a feed and link me to? It doesn't take too long to do this! Just go to this page, and scroll to the bottom. There's a place where you paste in the blog's web address, and livejournal will turn it into a subscription, which you can share by linking to the subscription page. I only have the ones above because the most popular subscriptions are available for free and paid accounts.

MY WISH LIST Q_Q  -- really perceptive blog that truly treats manga as canon literature. They mix manga news and themes like scientific discoveries (like how nice characters are prone to being sweets addicts, which is apparently true in real life) and psycological essays (like a reflective piece on the psycology of izaya posing as a woman and celty posing as a man on the internet.)  --- hipster writing blog --- super hipster, central massachusetts based, creative writing blog --- Because I want to be the first to know when they come to the states!

**BY THE WAY GUYS, if you have a paid account, you can set it up to watch ANY tumblr blog! Tumblr is just too talkative for me, is all, which is why I don't watch much there. I'd rather read my news feeds.
