Gallery: 10 Reasons It’s Hard To Be Upbeat

Let's try to be upbeat, shall we?

Here I am, the morbid one, trying to come up with reasons that would make it difficult to be upbeat. Such a trying task! I could come up with probably a 100 different reasons, but I don’t think a gallery of such things would be very entertaining and why do we want to cry on a Friday? Fridays are happy days! Friday is the start of the weekend! No tears on Friday.

So besides obvious things like losing a loved one, losing a job, or losing a limb in a freak accident, here are 10 other reasons that would make being upbeat difficult. I’m talking about normal daily stuff, and nothing so extravagant and over the top that it throws not just a wrench in your day, but in your life.

      Know what makes all those problems disappear? Weed. Smoke some pot and I guarantee you’ll forget about how gloomy rain is and just want to go fucking dance in it.

        Seconded. Weed makes pretty much everything awesome.

      Can I ask the most important question about this? How does the girl in the first picture get her eyebrows like that?? I’ve been trying to get that thick-but-also-thin eyebrow look for ages and cant manage it. She just has the best eyebrows I’ve ever seen on a fellow human.
