I'm looking at my tutorials, googling up definitions and examples - trying to figure out what I'm supposed to understand. It may be the first week, and it's definitely NOT getting any easier. But there's only one way I can go... and that's forward.

I replied, "The smile on my friends' faces. Seeing the smile on my friends' faces is enough to make me happy."
No matter how unhappy they may have made me feel....
