American optimism

One thing I love about America is its optimism and general 'can do' attitude. Nothing particularly triggered this but is an observation I've made. Friends have made commented that the blog is a tad negative.

When I first arrived, I felt that saying 'awesome' for things I felt were merely ok, or good was over the top. Now I am a convert. It's a feel good word. It expresses a sense of comraderie, appreciation and if it makes me giggle that I can do something mundane and someone writes back 'awesome' - then hell yeah - why not.

I guess it doesn't have to be reserved for the second coming of Christ which in its true sense - may inspire awe - but perhaps we all can, so yeah -read on, it's awesome.
